Usage tipsEdit

  • Summon Assassin can be used to take out enemies without alerting enemies to Daud's presence; however surviving enemies will be on high alert after the assassin leaves the battle.
  • It is recommended to unlock and upgrade Arcane BondVitality and Pull to Tier II; this will allow assassins to survive longer and dispatch enemies more easily.
  • It is also recommended for a stealthy playthrough to unlock and upgrade Arcane BondBend Time and Shadow Kill to Tier II; this will allow the assassin to assume a more tactical role in killing enemies.
  • Should Daud be caught, Summon Assassin can be used to distract enemies while Daud retreats or dispatches the enemies.
  • Each kill by an assassin counts as a kill by Daud.
  • Equip Hearty Crew bone charm to increase assassins' damage.


  • When summoned out of combat, the assassin reveals information about the local area, similar to the Heart. The assassins' quotes can be found here.
  • Assassins are able to be identified individually by their names. A full list of names can be found here.
  • When an assassin is defeated, he will seemingly disappear by blinking.
  • A summoned assassin can be pulled and then subsequently killed by Daud.
  • Novice assassins are dressed in dark gray, while Master assassins wear dark blue outfits.
  • If Daud summons a second assassin after the original, the first one will disappear.
