Trickster Introduction

The Trickster is a Space-Time Assassin. Teleport behind enemy lines, slow down time, watch enemies explode in slow motion with Temporal Blade. Equipped with control over space and time, the kill combinations for this Class are endless.

Tricksters are healed for every close-range kill and granted Shield for every enemy that dies by their Skills giving you some protection as you continue clearing the field.

Trickster Basic Information

Trickster
Class Icon trickster.png
Description Close Range, Hit & Run, Spacetime

Bend the laws of space and time to appear out of nowhere, assassinate your enemies, and return to safety in the blink of an eye.
Melee Skill Deal damage and inflict Slow to all enemies within a small radius.
Healing Mechanic As the Trickster, each enemy killed in close range heals you and grants a portion of Shield.
Traits • Receive additional 5% Maximum Health
• Active Shield grants 5% damage mitigation.
• Every Close Range kill heals you by 20% of your Maximum Health and grants you 12% Shield

The Trickster class can move in and out of the enemies quickly using spacetime skills. Its moves are mostly for close range combat and players can customize their Trickster to a DPS build or a Tank build that can both make the most out of its healing mechanic and shield.

Players who prefer getting behind enemy lines before assassinating enemies quickly in close range combat suits the Trickster class best.
