well i'm going for an assasin on my alt and i'm dumping strenth. because it only gets axe and fist both of which have next to no penetration (which i like(a lot)) so i'm going dex-int-con-str
Update: this doesn't work, Dex-int-con-pow failes at everything because all the charms that you can use stink. i'm now raising my power over my con to get access to swords and fist weapons
adventures are funny things.

that means nothing for Assassins. Dex-int stat spread before lvl 43-44 fails hard anyway.

Nah, not even a week ago, actually.  I had the max rating to run at it for awhile, but didn't think some of my alternate decks were good enough to stand up to the incoming destruction. Turned out I was wrong :)

Altho, I finally got HL on him around the point where I can run every charm in the game.

How do you all feel about assassins being able to run with spirit / bane groups in the coliseum?

Callas got Highlord long ago, probably during the highlord wars.  I don't think he was the first assassin to do so, I think Hellmaster probably got it earlier than that.

at which level?
Both spi and bane require con dump, and most of the time assassins can't dump con heavily. so imo spirit is viable at lvl 47+ and banes at lvl 50

I'm thinking more at the high end, whether I'd be better off in the long run with the class charms of an assassin or a DK if I want to run spirit or banes at 50.

Choose Inquisitor then.

They can. I run a bane 2 with my alt Misericordia on occasion, and they win decently enough.  But this is 51 level here, with being able to run every charm in the game.

So I’m coming back to Estiah after a looong time off and wanted to run w/ some of my alts and I’ve got a lvl 27 Scout with the following stats:

Power - 88
Intellect - 156
Dexterity - 171
Constitution – 136

I was originally planning on making him an Assassin which I think I could still do.  My question is can I keep power my dump?   Should I shoot for the 450 Dexterity, 400 Intellect, and around 350 each of Power and Constitution mentioned in the thread and if so where do I go from there?

Alternatively, how painful would it be to try and turn him into an Inquisitor?  They seem to be far and away the best 1v1 (from what I’ve read, really I have no clue).  I don’t have a great start on my power but I think it’s still early enough to change (purely speculation, no real experience to base this off of).

Alternatively, I have a level 13 in the works that could pretty easily be made into an Inquisitor if I really want one.

Thanks in advance for any help!

1)Power-dump or not:

You won't have the difference between Pow or Con dump up to lvl 46-47. Except for the ability to run Spirit as an alternative deck and you need Power for it.

In late game, power is a preferred option if you are running melee (Haunted Fang, Celestial Sword, Strength in Numbers - all require Power). For melee banes, high level Fists are very useful. And you still have the Spirit option.
On the other hand, Con is good for Magic/Aura decks but no Assassin would get a real edge with them.

So, to my money, Power>>>Con. You need like 350 con @lvl 50 to pass Archeological Adventurer quest and that's it.

2)Yes, it's possible, but you'll have to keep your Con low because Inqs are usually Con-dump

___________
If I was you, I'd go for Warlord and dump Int. Warlords have a real edge in melee comparing to Assassins and equal to them in many other aspects. The only option that Warlord doesn't have is melee banes, but with [Gravity Spear] you can forget about it.
