Full description[]

2D sprite in ToM

“Having sought further power to seek the most expedient methods of death onto their targets, the Nightblade is an assassin who has mastered the art of murder. With the ways of the ninja not being enough to satiate the goal of stealing lives, the Nightblade turns to deft methods of concealed weapons, the use of poisons, the purpose of maiming and injury to debilitate and weaken, and even striking the opponent psychologically to turn their fears and imagination against them from afar, before closing in on the kill. Though the Nightblade has turned away from the path of ninja, they keep with them their study of ninjutsu to perform obscured spells that not even ninja know about.”

The Nightblade class is the Dark-Dark job path of the Thief class for Hawkeye. The Nightblade focuses on being an enfeebling supportive role with major trumps up its sleeves, with its single target spells use to gradually harass and weaken other foes before building up either tech or utilizing its multi cast spells to wipe out the opposition instantly when the time is right. The Nightblade can be played both directly or indirectly, but can be utilized in most party configurations and demands a keen eye and quick reflexes as the battle goes on to fully realize its fatal capabilities.
