|— Official description|
|Effect||(Base Damage x1.25) Melee Damage
The Setup is a rogue ability. It deals damage on a target while buffing up the attacker.
This skill is perhaps the most important skill at the assassin's disposal. Not only it deals average damage, but boosts the rogue's damage output at a great rate: a pretty high boost for very little stamina. It should be used in the first or second turn if possible.
Setup serves as a good foundation for combos and high damage skills. Gut and Blade Fury benefit greatly due to their multihit-abilities and Slash Throat can cause an even more massive bleed on the victim.
This ability works only with dagger-wielding rogues.
