Assassin’s Cantrip

Skill Tree Effect
Raven  Once you successfully parry an attack, hit the Y button and toss a smoke bomb to vanish.

First up we have a skill that will help you make it out of a sticky situation. It is in the left skill tree, the yellow one, right next to the Adrenaline Upgrade in that tree. The skill will allow you to throw a smoke bomb at your feet right after a successful parry. And this is a great skill to have as it will allow you to disappear in the smoke if you are surrounded by a huge number of enemies or even if you feel you can not take the enemy on.

Auto Loot

Skill Tree Effect
Raven  Following a stealthy takedown or melee kill, automatically gather the loot from a fallen enemy.

Next on the list is Auto Loot which is pretty self-explanatory. It is in the yellow skill tree next to Breakfall. What this skill does is that it collects the stuff off the enemy that you just meleed or did a stealth takedown on. A great skill to have if you want to be sure that you do not miss out on any good gear.

Berserker’s Mettle

Skill Tree Effect
Bear  The initial blow dealt will not cause any loss of the adrenaline bar

Furthermore, we have Berserker’s Mettle which is a must-have if you rely on your Agreline a bit too much. What it does is that your partially filled adrenaline bar is not affected by the first hit that an opponent registers on you, so technically, it is an extra lifeline for your adrenaline bar. And as for the skill, it is located in the red skill tree, which is the top branch in the skill menu.

Bow To Melee Link

Skill Tree Effect
Wolf  Switching between melee strikes and bow attacks temporarily buffs the damage.

Now, if you are looking to make a mixed-up build with a little all over the place, then this is a skill that will benefit you a lot due to the fact that it will allow you to deal significantly more damage when you switch between a bow and melee during combat. And the skill is located in the blue skill tree, which is the branch to your right.

Skill Tree Effect
Raven  Upon descending from a massive height, you can automatically perform a roll to diminish the extent of damage

The absolute must-have skill for any build in an Assassins Creed game is something that negates or reduces fall damage because, in the game, you definitely expect to do some crazy free running and parkour. So it is good to reduce fall damage in case you do fall from a dangerous height. And that is exactly what the Breakfall skill does it allows your character to perform a roll when she falls from a high height which reduces the damage inflicted by it. Furthermore, the skill is in the yellow skill tree next to Auto Loot.

Brush With Death

Skill Tree Effect
Raven  Dodging an attack just before impact gives you heightened senses

Another great option to spend a skill point on is the Brush With Death skill which allows you to slow time given that you perform perfect parry or dodge, which is essentially dodging just in the nick of time. It makes the surrounding enemies move slower, allowing you to think up your next move. The skill is available in the yellow skill tree, which is to the left.

Emergency Aim

Skill Tree Effect
Wolf  You can instantly lock onto the enemy once they become aware of your presence

A good skill to consider for your bow build is the Emergency Aim which allows your aim to snap right onto an enemy that is about to detect you. Through it, you can eliminate the threat without being detected and also keep your cover if it is about to blow. Also, it is a skill that is located in the blue skill tree.


Skill Tree Effect
Wolf  Landing melee hits will regenerate the red part of your health bar

Up next, we have another great skill to have, as it allows you to regain the red portion of your health back, given that you land successful melee hits on the enemy. Furthermore, the skill is in the blue skill tree, which is to the right.

Last Chance Healing

Skill Tree Effect
Wolf  When your health dwindles, the surrounding world becomes slow, providing you with an opportunity to heal or flee.

Next, we have a great skill that can slow time when your health reaches a critical state. An absolute beast of skill because it is something that saved us a lot. What we used to do is once our health reached close to zero, the skill would activate, then we drop a smoke bomb and just flee to regain health and think of a strategy. If you want the skill for your playthrough, then you can find it in the blue skill tree next to Sprint Attack.

Predator Bow Combo

Skill Tree Effect
Raven  Constantly getting headshots with a predator bow results in extra damage

One of the most damaging skills in the game. It essentially allows you to stack your predator bow headshot damage a little extra damage on top. If you are able to get off with this bow combo, you definitely will be able to deal with most enemies from afar. The skill is in the yellow skill tree.

And with that, we bring our Best Skills list to an end. Where we discussed 20 must-have skills that can possibly amplify your game’s combat; however, if you have some other skills recommendations, then please do let us know through the comment section down below.
