LoreEditNo one knows how or where the Shadow class began. We can only guess at our roots using documents found in various ruins and relics. The Ancient Treasure Hound Guild Guide is known to be the most reliable story of our history.
"Arad the black dragon was given the power of death. A power that previously only Akene possessed. The assassins who followed his teachings were worried about the future of Glenheim, as more and more monsters started to appear. They started to dive deeper into the research of Arad's scripts and began to develop the assassin's abilities beyond what Arad could ever dreamed. They learned how to balance the use of two weapons to the spot.
When King Acharon saw what they could do, he asked the group of killers to protect Vimpeli and named them the name now so many fear: the Shadows..."
- Treasure Hound Guild Guide, Class Change, Chapter 10 Shadow -
Hunters move quickly and instinctively, and can swiftly dispatch any enemy they set their eagle eyes upon. Hunters move like the wind, which enables them to develop unique skill branches, like the shadows. These hunters use lightning fast martial arts to strike with dual blades.
They attack enemies quickly, relying on confusion and deception to get the upper hand. It is said that top Shadows can target an enemy using magical shadows, and track them to the ends of the earth before killing them.
Shadows concentrate on closer-ranged attacks. Leaving behind the classes' traditional bow, they take up the dagger instead for both hands. They concentrate on stealthy attacks, along with dark and various other skills.
They have excellent mobility and use multiple skill combos. Their fast attack speed and deadly tricks knock out opponents easily.
Note: This is the only Hunter class that doesn't require arrows to buy!
