  • Recall - is an exceptional variant used in GvG when paired up with another assassin. You and your teammate use a recall defense technique to alternate attack combos on the opposing team's NPCs.



  • The spike is done quickly, in the following order:
  • Shadow Prison -> Tiger Stance -> Black Lotus Strike -> Horns of the Ox -> Black Spider Strike -> Blades of Steel -> Impale
  • Execute the attack chain with Vampiric daggers.
  • Switch to Zealous daggers if energy runs low.
  • Use Ebon daggers when fighting a Warrior or when you are not engaged in combat.


  • Standard Melee counters.
  • Restore Condition will ruin a spike of this build, as it will remove all of the conditions you have put on the target and heal most of the damage dealt.
  • Hex Breaker will cause problems.
