Overview[]

Ninjitsu is one of the powersets. It is a Scrapper and Sentinel secondary Power set in City of Heroes and a Stalker secondary power set in City of Villains.

Ninjitsu is the secret art of Ninja. Many Ninjitsu powers emphasize acute senses that allow you to react deftly to avoid danger. Others focus on the ability to hide in plain sight. Still others rely on the ancient art of Kuji Kiri, and the pure focus of the mind to accomplish the impossible.

Powers[]

The following are powers in the Ninjitsu powerset.

Ninjitsu BlindingPowder.png Blinding Powder[]

You throw a handful of Blinding powder in a wide arc at your foes. Most foes will be blinded, and unable to see. Some affected targets may be overcome by the powder that they may start attacking their own allies. If you attack the blinded foes, they will be alerted to your presence, but will continue to suffer a penalty to accuracy.

The Sleep, Perception and Accuracy debuffs are applied to any target the power hits on the initial to-hit roll. On a successful hit, there is a subsequent 50% chance of the Confusion effect being applied.

Ninjitsu Hide.png Hide[]

Hide makes you almost impossible to detect. When properly 'Hidden', a Stalker can pull off critical hits with his attacks, and even land a massive 'Assassins Strike' with an Assassins power. When you attack or are damaged while using this power, you will be discovered. Even if discovered, you are hard to see and retain some bonus to defense. Unlike most stealth powers, Hide can be used at the same time as other concealment powers, giving you even greater stealth capability. Very low Endurance cost.
