Class Overview

The ninja is a nimble strategist who relies on hit-and-run tactics and misdirection to attack quickly and get away cleanly. She deals deadly damage with her impressive shuriken, up close or at range. Ninjas can also harness their Chi to produce devastating flame attacks.

Now You See Her

Ninjas hit hard and without warning. They dart back and forth, lunge forward, and can even place decoys and teleport behind enemies.

Now You Don’t

Ninjas slip away to avoid damage. They can disappear in a puff of smoke or a damaging flame bomb, or leap forward suddenly to avoid attacks.

Rotating Blades of Death

Ninjas do more with their shurikens than throw them. They also enjoy pulling enemies into spinning vortexes that both slice and dice.

The Heat of Battle

Ninjas focus the power of their Chi to burn enemies by tossing around balls of flame or calling down an avalanche of molten fire.
