Hailing from the war-torn lands of the Far East, the secret arts of the ninja were born of necessity, and have since given rise to a unique breed of highly-trained combatants.
Able to manipulate the vital energies of the land, the air, and living beings, they manifest their power through the weaving of signs, unleashing a wide array of attacks against their foes. Master the arts of the ninja and learn to bend the tide of battle to your will.
Ninjas further develop the art of assassination inherent to rogues. Even deadlier, ninjas learn the secret arts of ninjutsu to turn the wide of the fight when their prey less expect.
