Corners and dispatches foes with ease.
- —In-game description
This possibly makes the Assassin job the absolute best class to level up viera, but be careful about their HP growth, since Assassins are almost always the first target by enemies because of their low health. A special treat to Assassins is that they can wield either Katanas or Greatbows in combat. When equipped with the Concentrate ability, Assassins are considered overpowered, since their instant death abilities gain near perfect Accuracy.
