Although the assassin is quite weak in open combat, with the right race and skill choices, you can easily sneak up on your enemies and slash them with a single swing of your dagger. In fact, it is very fun to sneak up on your opponents and kill them with one or two blows while being undetected.

Best Assassin Build Guide in Skyrim
When you start the game and choose the path of an assassin, you will have to make many important choices to make your character as strong as possible. You’ll have to choose your race, skill, perks, equipment, and stones that boost some of your skills.

For the best assassin build, we recommend that you choose the Khajiit race. With the highest sneak stats, a very good one-handed combat skill, and the ability to see in the dark, this race will be your best option. In addition, by choosing Khajiit, you can avoid unnecessary leveling.
