Corners and dispatches foes with ease.

Assassin is a job available to viera in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Assassins are the deadliest force, with dangerous instant death abilities and incomparable stat growth in all areas except HP.

This possibly makes the Assassin job the best class to level up viera, though one needs to be mindful about their HP growth, since Assassins are almost always the first target by enemies because of their low health. Assassins wield katanas and greatbows. When equipped with the Concentrate ability, Assassins are considered overpowered, since their instant death abilities gain near perfect Accuracy.


Assassins, like Ninjas, are nicely balanced between MP, Attack, Magic Power and Speed, but at the cost of low HP, Defense and Resistance. Assassins are the fastest class.

The Assassins were a secret order of Nizari Ismailis, particularly those of Persia and Syria, that formed in the late 11th century. Mentions of Assassins were preserved within European sources where they are depicted as trained killers, responsible for the systematic elimination of opposing figures.
