How to getEdit

Two copies of Assassin's Blade are a reward for raising a rogue to level 2.

Two Golden copies of Assassin's Blade are a reward for raising a rogue to levels 32 and 34.

Assassin's Blade is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

StrategyEdit

This weapon has the highest Durability of all Rogue weapons (aside from while Self-Sharpening Sword) having enough Attack to make good use over time, as long it doesn't get removed prematurely. This weapon is a great target for weapon buffs like Deadly Poison and gives those cards a ton of value.

However, while efficient, its high cost can prove cumbersome. The aforementioned Self-Sharpening Sword can be considered instead, as it costs 2 less mana, and benefits even more from weapon-buffing effects like Captain Greenskin or Doctor Krastinov.

LoreEdit

Assassin's Blade is a one-handed dagger dropped from mobs in Shadowfang Keep. However, this weapon does not match that weapon's appearance, and likely simply references the obvious, a blade used by assassins or rogues.
