Concept

In R6, Shadow Masters were greatly improved. You can get 2 of them, Summon Mastery boosts their skill levels, and the annoying conversion chance of Mind Blast was removed.

Shuriken is the ideal backup for these Shadow Masters, since it works fine with only one skill point invested. With the correct equip, it is possible to make a very safe char with a good damage output.

Base Stats

In R6, its best to invest most stat points into dex, to improve Shuriken damage, AR, Def, and block chance

Strength
none or as needed for equip
Dexterity
all remaining points
Vitality
as needed, 100-200
Energy
none

Skills

Since the Shadow Master skill levels are calculated from the Assassins soft skill levels, its best to invest one point in every skill the Shadows use.
