Cherry Credits has announced that the Assassin playable class has been added to Dragon Nest SEA. According to Cherry Credits, the introduction of the Assassin, said to bring a whole new way to play the game, has doubled the Korean population of Dragon Nest. Whether this is a sign that the Assassin will make its way to the NA/EU version or not is unclear.
Along with the Assassin, the release also introduces the first upgrade path of the Assassin, the Chaser. Having inherited assassination techniques from ancient times, Chasers use concealed shadow weapons to pursue and silently take down enemies. Chasers can go through a second class upgrade to become either a Ripper who focuses on physical ninja skills, or a Raven that specializes in the use of hidden weapons to kill their enemies.
The Assassins are also the first class to introduce two new mechanics to the game: a stealth mechanism which allows players to attack while they are hidden from sight, and also a charging mechanism that allows skill cool-downs to be prolonged to provide greater damage the next time it is used.
