Assassin's Blade (Core) is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Previous availability[]

Prior Year of the Gryphon's rotation on March 30, 2021:

  • Two copies of Assassin's Blade were a reward for raising a rogue to level 2.
  • Two Golden copies of Assassin's Blade were a reward for raising a rogue to levels 32 and 34.

Strategy[]

This weapon has the highest Durability of all Rogue weapons, but very low Attack for its cost. This makes weapon buffs like Deadly Poison highly synergistic with this weapon by compensating for its low Attack value and extracting the most value out of them.

While efficient, its high cost can prove cumbersome, especially if you lack weapon buffing cards, while leaving itself more vulnerable to weapon-destroying effects. If you plan on playing faster and more aggressively, cheaper or higher attack weapons like Self-Sharpening Sword can be considered instead.

Lore[]

Assassin's Blade is a one-handed dagger dropped from mobs in Shadowfang Keep. However, this weapon does not match that weapon's appearance, and likely simply references the obvious, a blade used by assassins or rogues.
