Skill Trainers:


  • While an Assassin's Critical Strikes attribute increases your chance of getting a critical hit greatly, using this skill can still be chancy unless you have a way of ensuring an even distribution of critical hits. Fortunately, Critical Strike, Malicious Strike, and the Warrior skills Wild Blow and Keen Chop can provide critical hits on demand.
  • Critical Eye and Siphon Strength, which both increase the Assassin's critical hit rate, are also useful, though less predictable.
  • Combines well with Way of the Assassin.
  • Beware Soul Barbs or other such anti-enchantment hexes while under the effects of this enchantment, as each critical hit will count as a reapplication of the enchantment, and will trigger the effects of the hex.
