Ash, a mortal and lethal warframe with good stealth and assassination tools. With a versatile kit, surviving ability and high DPS, Ash is a deadly war-machine which is capable of creating a massive damage on the battlefield. Ash is passive hemorrhage and mostly favors slash based weapons.
Ash Special Abilities
Shuriken -This ability allows Ash to throw some Shuriken which causes damage to enemies and make them to bleed out. The best part is, it will throw them automatically at the nearest enemies you are aiming at. And if your warframe have 145% or higher power strength, then every Shuriken inflict 100% armor on two targets instantly.
Smoke Screen - This ability make him makes him invisible. It is more like a Smoke Screen. When Ash throws smoke bomb, it will conceal him and any companion with him for a while. While Ash is invisible, he cannot be targeted by the enemies but they can still hear him and try to react to any damage they receive.
Teleport - This ability will teleport Ash to a target within a range. If the target is an enemy then the teleport will end up with a melee finisher attack. The killing will be fun if you combine Covert Lethality on a dagger. It is little buggy augment but still it looks so cool as it takes just 5 seconds which is a way too short.
Blade Storm - This ability will allow you to create a multiple strike on the marked enemies. Multiple strike in sense, using this ability ash can create multiple clones and attack the target. When Blade Storm is activated, you will enter into the targeting mode and aim your enemies for assassination. The clones of Ash will teleport and strike the enemies using finisher attacks causing heavy damage and bleed effect on them. Using this ability you can kill level 100 enemies in a few seconds. It also performs brief crowd control. However marking enemies will costs energy but using it along with Smoke Screen will reduce its cost.

This build is suitable for defense, excavation maps and in survival missions.
Fatal Teleport Ash Build
Fatal Teleport Ash build, this is quite a neat and clear build, that focus on Teleport and augmented mod Fatal Teleport. With this Ash build you will need a lot of ability range, efficiency and also a strong melee weapon with a good finisher move. For quick teleport between enemies, you will need a fast weapon with a fast finisher move. The most important and good thing about this Ash build is, you can try this build with almost all types of missions. I personally like and prefer this Fatal Teleport Ash build, because it's quite a good way and fun to teleport around and to kill the mobs.
The Invisibility Ash Build
Ivara and Loki Warframe are preferred in general for a spy or rescue mission or just to act as a sneaky assassin. If you don't have them, then you might use this Ash build and you can still be able to stealth your way through such missions. For this build you will need good amount of ability duration to be invisible. Rush and Rage help to move fast through missions. You can also use the augmented mod Smoke Shadow and support your allies or even get some strength ability. You can also use your Teleport to improve your mission speed and can have other benefits.
Seeking Shuriken Ash Build
Seeking Shuriken is just a casual approach to use mods for Ash's first ability Shuriken and its augmented mods. Depending on the mission and where you want to use it, you can switch out Rage with Energy Conversion or Primed Continuity or Even with Blind Rage. You can use this Ash build in harder missions, as it reduces the enemy's armor by 70%. For a beginner, The Seeking Shuriken Ash Build is a good option to start, until you get used to it a bit more. Whenever you use this Ash build try to share your Shuriken as it will lower the enemies armor for a better extend.
Ash has a good collection of builds and you will have a chance to utilize every ability in some way and its really cool to have a space ninja assassin. The Blade Storm ability is a bit slow but other than that it is one such good warframe but with fury on you melee, it will speed up your Blade Storm. Try the builds we have suggested and find which Ash build suits your game-play.
