General Information

Ninja is a melee DPS job released in Patch 2.4 of A Realm Reborn. It evolves from the class Rogue. Ninja, like rogue, dual-wields 2 dagger weapons, applies poisons to their weapons and is able to become invisible with Hide. Ninjas' unique abilities are their Ninjutsu Actions. They can execute these abilities by using their Mudras (Ninja hand signs) in correct orders and combinations.

  • In battle, the main focus of Ninja is to use Mudras to create Ninjutsus correctly. It is not as positionally focused as Monk.

The Primary Attribute for Ninja is Dexterity. Ninja shares pre-patch 2.4 gear with Monk. Dexterity was added to those items.

  • Ninja was first introduced in E3 2014.
