Horde assassin is a prestige class. These silent, deadly killers first appeared under 's demon-backed reign over the Horde. They struck down any who dared oppose the Horde — including anyone within the Horde's ranks who might defy the demonic lords. Horde assassins were renowned for making no sound when administering an execution and leaving no witnesses. Ever.
Though the Horde has cast of the shackles of demon rule, Horde assassins still ply their trade. They still work to keep the Horde strong, though they are no longer the heartless killers from the time of the Burning Legion. Now, they track down and dispatch those who would bring back demonic influence and those who would threaten the security of the Horde. These assassins are publicly considered a last resort, to be called only in the direst of circumstances. In practice, Horde chieftains have few reservations about their use.
- The Horde assassin prestige class is a class from the Warcraft: The Roleplaying Game. In World of Warcraft: The Roleplaying Game it was replaced with the assassin prestige class.
