- Frenzy is the best way to defeat them. Always.

- A tower earns experience every single time it fires. Therefore, using frenzy on a swarm of assassins is by far the easiest way to level up your towers quickly. Especially if you have a battery of Crypts, since the travel time for the shots means the towers can fire even more shots (Crypts can do this pretty quickly on frenzy), earning more exp.

- Contrary to popular belief, basic and evileye temples DO NOT HIT CONSTANT DAMAGE ON ASSASSINS, or any other temple for that matter. If you look carefully, they inflict damage on a rate of about 1 hit per second as a basic tower. These ‘hits’ have the same 50% chance to hit assassins as any other. This is why I always recommend upgrading to the splash hit temple.

- Freeze and fear still affect assassins if the shots do no damage. You probably already knew that though.

also instead of getting the fear tower take the other path to get the disarm tower…. removes their invis ability

Just a note for future readers of this topic: Assassins no longer dodge 50% of your attacks. Instead, they automatically reduce the damage of all your attacks by 30%-90%.

This just makes them slightly easier to beat – all of the above tactics still apply.

And vordraz seems to have confused them with Ninjas (who can turn invisible and are annoying as hell).
