Best Assassin Skill Set

Skill Description
Borrowed Time Receive Shield and mark your location for 28 seconds. Triggering the skill again will bend spacetime and teleport you back to the marked spot.
Slow Trap Create a spacetime Anomaly sphere that inflicts Slow onto enemies and projectiles.
Hunt The Prey Select an enemy and teleport behind them, receiving a Shield bonus.

Tier 1 Trickster mods are already farmable at early stages of the game. So you can already dismantle gear to unlock these particular mods to further strengthen each skill

Borrowed Time will be the bread and butter of your Assassin Build. Time-Space Protection offers up Armor and Resistance bonuses for when you charge into battle. Gunshield grants Firepower bonuses while the skill is active. And lastly, Aggressive Teleportation leaves an explosion after you teleport damaging enemies you may have missed.

In the event you get surrounded by swarms of enemies, a Thunder Dome-enhanced Slow Trap grants 100% Shield when the skill ends.

Hunt The Prey in itself is already a handy skill in covering short distances and quick assassinations. Equipping Weakening the Prey not only Interrupts Elite and Boss skills, but also inflicts Weakness on them.

The Assassin is an apex predator. If your playstyle is agrresively hunting down enemies and gunning them down, this may be the build for you. As early as Level 21, you can build a Partial Assassin focusing more on Weapon Damage and Critical Damage bonuses. This build will be centered on maximizing your damage output, while still giving some weight to your MOVEMENT skills.

Alternatively, you can rely on Anomaly Shards to boost your Firepower and Weapon Damage bonuses as you build your way up to that Full Assassin Build.
