Blade of the Assailant

Blade of the Assailant Realm Slash Though Oryx is only known to deploy his assassin units in times of personal need, the deliberately cruel craftsmanship of their katanas is no less remarkable.

Similar to the Symbiotic Ripper dagger, this Katana posesses high damage and a fast fire rate, but with an even slower projectile speed than the aforementioned dagger.

This katana is only beaten by the Celestial Blade and Enforcer damage wise, putting it above most katanas in that aspect. While the projectile speed may be abysmally slow and the range being less than that of tiered katanas, the longer projectile lifetime allows for its shots to linger and hit enemies that tend to chase or follow a set movement pattern, making it similar to the Void Blade.

Overall, this is a highly effective katana in the right hands.
