–Black Dragon Genins raiding

Black Dragon Genin are the standard members of the Black Dragon Ninjas faction. Their title of "Genin" translates to "low ninja' or "junior ninja".

They can be found in the Tower of Ninjas alongside Buzan and Dimak. If a player's outpost is within range, Genin will arrive to ransack it.

They also have a very rare chance to spawn in Stobe's Garden.

They wear [Shoddy] armour (5% chance of [Standard]) and have weapons manufactured by Ancient.

The Statistics here are taken from FCS. Skills will be multiplied by the racial multiplier. Players should also be aware that non-player characters also level up while fighting.


  • They will prioritize stealing food above all else before attacking the player's characters. This can create annoying situations where the player has to loot back all his food individually from the slain Genin.
  • This can be used to the player's advantage, as keeping the door closed to a building containing a Food Store will cause them to bunch up and try to break down the door. Characters with weapons with wide swinging animations (heavy weapons, for example) can then be ordered to attack the bunched up ninja, hitting most, if not all of them, with each swing.
