Gameplay tips and progression

(I apologize beforehand, my thoughts are rather scattered and there is no particular order in my tips)
Random Notes:
Firstly, and most importantly, this is meant to be a fun PvP build more than anything. This build only shows my build up to level 60. It has yet to have been played at any level past that.

At level 60 the vast majority of my backstabs/ripostes result in immediate kills or leave them with slivers of health left giving you the immediate advantage. Even with your low vitality you can more than likely follow them and kill them with your second right hand weapon.

At level 60, many people can't one hit you and will leave you with less than 30% health. That is when morion blade/clever rats can come into play. Although I usually wouldn't suggest engaging prolonged fights with this build, sometimes this route can be more fun. The change in tactcs will definitely surprise them.

Avoid regenerative effects and anything that prevents you from being completely invisible when you are tracking them.

How I tend play this build:

  • As the name suggests, you must be patient. Do not go blindly rushing into rooms without first taking necessary precautions.
  • Track your target(s) by taking a vantage point and then wait for them to run past you and when they least expect it backstab them.
  • If they live, they probably wont have much health left. Run after them and get in the final attack.
  • If there is more than one to kill, pick on the straggler or the one in cloth armor. Then run away and repeat.
  • If it is 1v1 and you feel confident, go for the parry and riposte.


  • One-hit Kills
  • Elusive
  • Quick attacks
  • Stealth
  • Hyper mode
  • If it fits your play-style it is a lot of fun


  • Low Health
  • One hit deaths in hyper mode
  • A lot of waiting for the opportune moment
  • Second Chance/Warding/LAG will thwart you every time.
  • Other people using complete stealth makes your job a lot harder
  • Viability at lvl 120 is questionable

CONSTRUCTIVE Criticism is welcome.
