    I just started an Assassin last night. I think it's a ton of fun so far. (Level 10!) I haven't heard the best things about the class, but I already have a HoX, ToS, and a Conq. I couldn't get into the Ranger for some reason, so I am checking out the assassin.

    Sneaking seems a bit odd, sometimes my target will have their back to me but somehow spot me, but otherwise I'm having a blast. And that first attack coming out of stealth is insane! KABOOM! 75% of the mob's health is gone. Sweet. :)

    I can see it being tricky on PvP, I can def. see myself only surviving against someone like a ToS by being a total dick ganker when they are getting beat on by 5 mobs. I have a 27 ToS and the amount of healing I can pump on myself is INSANE. But so far, I am liking my foray into the Assasin class.

    I am also liking finishing the final view of the night time quests.

    I've gotten my Assassin to level 18, and I'm liking it so far. When I was level 13 in White Sands, I saw a level 19 Barb, and I started to attack him, I had him at 10%, and he went into some water. Good thing I have my crossbow. I shot him to death.
    IN THE FACE! AND HE BLED. :winky:

    I'm noticing as reaver spec for barb I do pretty silly yet inconsistant damage. At 51 I killed a level 59 tempest of set in a single cyclone of steel, but sometimes it hits like a wet noodle.

    Guess it's the cooldown that makes it have a higher crit chance, except it can get a regular crit on top of that

    i'm hoping the level 56 CoS hits a lot harder then the jump from the 48->52 one. but even then my drive to play is dwindling away

    Rogues become noticably less fun post 60, when you see ToS and PoM solo chain pulling entire zones, while you have to rest after pulls of 3, which burn every cooldown. And thats with a barb, assassins are even less AoE focused.

    I just hope they'll never notice

    My lvl 37 PoM noticed this today. A lvl 39 assassin was toying with me like I was some grey mob for him. It was a little disconcerting...

    But on the other hand, I don't really mind that. They have a pretty good trinity going on, where soldier > rogue > caster > soldier. I think that's kinda how it works, anyway. It's kind of neat.

    I could run a camp of 4 even con without blowing all my cooldowns as an assassin (thats at 62 fighting 64s). If I was fighting one on ones with my food buffs I'd hardly need to rest at all. Assassins may not have aoe abilities listed but our meele range isn't horrible and usually when fighting a group I can kill almost all of them at the same time.

    So as a Ranger should I be dual wielding or using a shield+1h? I really don't melee like at all but it still makes me feel a little better to have the shield.

    Well then go with that, honestly play the game as you see fit, if you like sword and board better then duel wield run it.

    dual wielding as a ranger doesn't get you any increased damage. all of your melee damage is going to be from combos which only use your main hand anyways. might as well at least have the increased defense and chance to block

    crossbow line makes your hamstring knockback enemies in addition to slowing them.

    Man I don't know what it is, but as I leveled higher my assassin could take more even cons not less. If they are all meele I can take on up to 6 popping all cooldowns.
