How do I backstab

how do I do a successful backstab?

Well, to begin with, you need a backstab weapon (bit of an obvious one, but I had to say it), and it needs to be equipped.
Then, you need to turn invisible and use the backstab function:
hero.backstab(enemy)
It isn’t quite a simple as it sounds though… The difficult thing is being invisible at the right time. If you cast invisibility on yourself, then use the backstab function, but by the time you get to the enemy your invisibility’s run out—you’re in a bit of a pickle. Backstab only does 10% damage when you do it ‘visibly’.
I would recommend using either Ritic (if you can afford him) or Naria, who has a hide() ability. Also use the invisibility ring. This gives you a lot more flexibility when trying to get the enemy while you’re invisible.
The hero.backstab() method actually moves you to the enemy itself, but if you lose your invisibility in the middle of moving you can’t stop the function. So I think it’s wise to use a moveXY() or move() method to get to your enemy’s location then stab them.
I hope this helps and if you need any more info. please feel free to ask.
