Overview

The Guillotine Cross is the third class counterpart for the Assassin and Assassin Cross. They retain their class-specific abilities of dual wielding and using katars while also gaining access to an improved stealth, unique poisons, and a wide array of offensive and defensive tools. As with their predecessors, they typically depend on a combination of speed, stealth, and decisive strikes in order to succeed.

Guillotine Cross is often shortened and abbreviated to "GX", where the "X" represents the Cross, much like it does with Assassin Cross's common abbreviation, "SinX".

Guillotine Cross has the potential to display the following strengths:

  • Extremely high physical damage output over time in both single target and AoE.
  • Unexpectedly survivable due to a combination of high base HP and passable defensive skills.
  • A built-in advantage in movement speed over most other classes.
  • Access to an array of unique poisons to target the specific weaknesses of enemies.
  • Offensive skills ranging from melee to 13 cell range.
  • The ability to pick and choose fights using their stealth.

While things may seem great for them, almost every strong point of the Guillotine Cross has a converse trade off:

  • Their high physical damage output is dependent on using both their weapon and shield slots on either dual wielding or katar, turning them into a glass cannon.
  • Accordingly, their high survivability is dependent on holding a shield, making them incapable of contributing meaningful damage while tanking.
  • The movement speed advantage rapidly consumes SP to maintain, and is lost when they are knocked out of Cloaking Exceed.
  • Their unique poisons are not universally useful, require preparation prior to use, and can be difficult to apply.
  • Their only truly long range skill is meant to function as a finisher rather than a primary damage skill, leaving them as mostly a melee and medium range specialist.

The Guillotine Cross's appeal lies in their adaptability as they have a theoretical solution for almost any problem. This adaptability is combined with their ability to freely observe the situation using their stealth, letting them make the necessary preparations to excel. Having more active skills available to them than their predecessors while dual wielding allows them to hyper-specialize their main hand and offhand weapons, yet still retain a degree of flexibility.

Builds

Generally speaking, Guillotine Cross's primary stat is STR. After that, in order of importance comes DEX, AGI/VIT, INT/LUK.

STR

The most important and desirable stat for Guillotine Cross, high STR is needed in order to increase damage output, reach an adequate weight limit, and hit required thresholds for bonuses from gear. It is recommended to aim for 120 base STR.

AGI

Increases ASPD, which in turn can mean a drastically increased DPS for Guillotine Cross. It's important to keep in mind that having too much ASPD can actually increase the difficulty of dancing Cross Impact. AGI directly boosts the damage of Cross Ripper Slasher, and resists both the Sleeping and Bleeding status effects, the former being highly lethal. At least 90 AGI is recommended.

VIT

A vital stat for every class, VIT resists an assortment of status effects and boosts general tankiness. As Guillotine Cross is often without a shield, they need high VIT to provide padding against lethal strikes, and to avoid being chain stunned. Having at least 90 VIT will allow you to survive many situations you otherwise would not.

INT

A secondary stat for Guillotine Cross, INT is still useful for the increased SP pool and regeneration. It also aids in resisting Blind, Silence, and Chaos. The only skill where INT is a factor is Soul Destroyer, and even there, it isn't of great importance. However, it can be useful for PvP against other Guillotine Crosses, as INT is used to resist the Oblivion Curse poison. Having at least 30 INT will greatly help your SP pool.

DEX

The second most important stat for Guillotine Cross, a high DEX is needed in order to hit most targets, as well as decreasing the cast time on a few skills. It also slightly increases damage output, and boosts the success rate when using Create Deadly Poison and New Poison Creation. Around 90-100 DEX is generally desirable.

LUK

Provides slight resistances against many status effects, and boosts success rate when using Create Deadly Poison and New Poison Creation. Counter Slash is also capable of critting, increasing the value of the CRIT gained through LUK. It is recommended to have at least 30 LUK for general status resist and stat boosting purposes.
