Artwork for Assassin.

The finely honed skills of the assassin enable her to strike with deadly force.

The Assassin job class is available to viera in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. They can attack from afar or inflict various statuses or Instant Death up close. It is similar to the Assassin job unique to Celia and Lettie of Final Fantasy Tactics, and is based on crippling or simply defeating foes. In comparison to Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, some of the Assassin's stats have decreased dramatically and Concentration no longer gives as high an Accuracy boost as it used to, but that can be replaced with something else.

A Green Mage's Tranq Magick can make an Assassin's Last Breath ability very accurate against close range classes (less so against mages and the like). Assassin can equip Katanas and greatbows, enabling them to attack at either close or far range. A particularly powerful set utilizes a greatbow, Ultima Masher, and the Blood Price support ability to fling Ultima every turn while staying out of harm's way. Also noteworthy are her movement stats (including Speed), which are perfect to begin with.

A notable Assassin and the teacher of the arts is Veis, who is now a member of House Bowen.

The Assassin job appears on a lightning-card.



The Assassins were a secret order of Nizari Ismailis, particularly those of Persia and Syria, that formed in the late 11th century. Mentions of Assassins were preserved within European sources where they are depicted as trained killers, responsible for the systematic elimination of opposing figures.
