Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Shade
The last class associated with Kerillian unlocks after reaching Level 12 in the game. The class is a balance between the stealth and the action-oriented style of the character. With a focus on attack speed and general movement pace, the Shade class makes for a fun and frantic combat. Words of wisdom; get behind your enemies, you’ll see why in just a moment.
Since you’re going for speed rather than power here, ‘Dual Daggers’ will come in handy. The repeating volley crossbow is the other weapon which might give you the edge in battle from long range. The daggers land hits in quick succession as you swing and swing until you’re clearing swarms of enemies like they’re laundry. Charging these will result in a downward stab dealing massive amounts of damage.
Titled ‘Murderous Prowess’, the abilities will grant you a couple of special bonuses when attacking the enemy from behind. Damage output from behind goes up by an additional 50%. Back-stabbing enemies improve chances of critical hits and slaying man-sized enemies instantly. Most of the enemies fall under the ‘Man-Sized Enemies’ category with the notable exception of Chaos Warriors.
The career skill ‘Infiltrate’ will make Kerillian undetectable for 10 seconds. The screen will grey out and during that, you’re completely hidden from enemies’ sight. This is the ideal moment to get behind enemies and make use of those passives mentioned above. So silent but lethal. Note, however, hitting an enemy during the ‘undetected’ phase will get you out of it.
Talents will grant you a boost of 5% in attack speed. Additionally, your chances of getting a critical strike also go up while increasing the power of your critical strikes. Other talents will lower cool-down duration and regenerate health.
Lastly, you receive a boost to your damage output by unlocking a specific talent. Due to low stamina consumption, you can continue to deliver blows to the enemy without worrying about running out of your breath!
