    Hey fellow Vault dwellers Furrion here again with another Hidden Gem Spotlight. This time we will be taking a look at something that is relatively new but exceedingly unique none the less. Ever heard of the Ra Gada or the Yokudans and their peerless warriors called Sword Singers? Well if you haven’t, get prepared because this one is going to be awesome. And if you have, you may have just found one the most well interpreted builds of them on the site. So, without further ado I present this week’s HGS….

    The Ansei Assassin by Tysoyaha

    About the Build

    On a quest to uncover the ancient and forgotten art of Sword Singing; the Ansei Assassin goes through two major transitions to unlock the full potential of her shehai (Spirit Blades).

    The Ansei assassin is a quick and precise hitting Nightblade, who has more than a few tricks up her sleeve. Utilizing the shadow stone and a few nifty spells from the Apocalypse magic pack, she has truly unique way of fighting and ambushing her enemies, keeping combat fast paced and fresh.


    Tysoyaha, has done an awesome job with this build, providing us with a very clear insight into the ancient sword Singers and transitioning those abilities seamlessly into the build. The way he has structured the build flows very naturally from start to finish, and the “Book of Circles” section is just a really nice touch.

    In Closing

    The Ansei assassin is a great build with a very well thought out concept and underpinning. It is clear that Tysoyaha put a lot of effort into this one. It is well deserving to have a place in The Hidden Gem Spotlight, so go and check it out guys!!

    This is one of my favorites. Introduced me to Spellscribe, which is my favorite favorite combat move in the game, now.

    Spellscribe is a pretty cool ability, I've used it for a few characters since I got Ordinator. That's the good thing about builds the more you read the more you learn. Especially with a lot Ordinator focused stuff coming out, theres just so much awesome perks it can be almost overwhelming. Having them broken down into a carefully crafted build like this can really help highlight some of the great new roleplaying potential that Ordiinator brings to Skyrim. Tysoyaha has done an excellent job with this one.

    Thanks guys, I'm flattered. BTW Spellscribe is one of my favorite little tricks with these mods. It, Octavio's Recital and Contingency all open up SO many new options for interesting builds. If you're interested, I can write a guide on what I've discovered.
