Stupid class, but why would you expect them to be in the game? This is a remake, and so you should expect the old to return and that's about it--especially when thieves weren't, you know, able to promote in the first place.

Most players find Assassins to be one of the worst class in the history of the FE even be. But I don't despise them as most expert players do. I found them to be a really cool class.

How come you don't like Assassins? They are generally quite useful

I rather have an unpromoted thieve than an Assassin. The only thing they have going for them is Lethality, and it's a really cheap skill. I'd rather keep the ability to Steal, even if that mans being less strong.

I'd be fine with Assassins if they didn't promote from such an awesome class.

Are you joking? Seriously Assassins are one of the worst unit in the GBA.

It is true that Assassin's are considered one of the worst class amongst most experience players. They happen to have the worst Str cap of 20 which is quite not good when you think about it. They're also complete reliant on the RNG, even more so than most other classes such as Beserkers and Swordmasters for instance. They depend on the RNG to put out critical hits. Especially their skills, Silencer which happen to be no better than critical hit in a LOT of situations. Meaning they need to relay on killer weapons such as Killing Edge or Shamshir in order to active their Silencer skills to be of decent use. By doing so, it would probably result losing many of your funds. They also lack of ranged weaponry since they're usually weaker than physical weapons of the same level, which hurt their cause even more.


Read this and see why.

I like assassins but they have the same caps as theives besides speed skill but when you have a sword and level 20/20 skill doesn't matter. Assassins suck but I can't help using them.

Yes, the GBA assassins were rather bad. (Didn't stop me from using them, though.) I think FE10 Volke is the best assassin yet, but he's still comes in rather late...

It wouldn't make sense for Julian and Ricardo to become assassins, anyway. They aren't cold-blooded killers. If they were to promote to anything, they would be better off as Rogues or Thief Fighters.

Thief Fighter is what Thieves promote to in Holy War and Thracia. There isn't much more I can think of to say about them. =/

I think that's what the Rogue was called originally--can't recall the name from Seima (Fe8) when it first returned :/

But yeah, for the most part.

You're missing the point. Thieves aren't supposed to be good for battle.

That's why Thieves have good dodging skills. Being a Rogue helps them get even better Speed.

To me there are usually soldiers(the class) guarding the chests or knights like FE 6
Thus I'm saying they should have a bigger strength caps
