    Default Assassin for world pvp/equal level gank?

    I'm around level 32 and I've been playing as assassin/nb/bd, I do great when I get the drop like I should, but. I was wondering what kind of world pvp/gank specs any of you run, and what kind of world pvp/gank spec would work best around level 50?

    More specifically, and to the point. Is it smart to open up with the stealth bleed, puncture for more bleed, then a 5 point impale, then CP builders and a 3-5pt final blow, or should I put up the bleeds, then stun and restealth?

    At what level would getting the PvP soul be worth it? Getting favor is slow going ganking, as there arent a lot of people my level in the zones when I'm out questing and looking for victims. Mostly ****** level 50's who have nothing better to do than nuke me on sight. I don't blame them, but c'mon. :P

    Oh and inb4 grind warfronts. Boring, and full of FotM pyros all day errday. Dunno bout you, but I don't like instantly melting whenever I come within range of a node D:

    Open up with all your bleeds get everything up that you can jagged, puncture, (filler) then impale, pop back I usually kick them if there gonna heal or just after I have final blow'd them. Then slip away and come back in with a stun and start again refreshing anything that's fallen off. Use your long stun if you have to interrupt anything.... and pray they dont just laugh at you as they out heal your dmg :P

    OP can never "inb4" btw ^_^ but I'm sorry to say just grit your teeth and do some battlegrounds don't get to upset about dying... or roll with a healer (This I love).

    I don't gank healers for this specific reason. They normally leave me alone as well, or don't see me as I am stealthed about 80% of the time I am out and about.

    Edit: Also, if there is a class that can outheal my dps I normally harass them with CC from stealth until they leave, or start throwing aoes everywhere, in which case I back off and quest somewhere else.

    Again, I prefer open world pvp and killing people who are unawares or trying to play like a PVE server player, grinding mobs and staying under 75% hp. I will on occasion jump someone higher level than myself, usually warriors or other rogues though.

    Yeh man,

    I totally agree with everything, although the buggers that out heal usually kite me to there nearest town.

    I'm 41 atm. I have no problem killing anything in World PvP, normally because theyre in leveling specs or whatever.

    For instance, I killed two warriors today while both were at full health and the same level. One was a champion, other was a tank.... Sapped the tank, put full bleeds on the Champion and lol'd while he died. I have the extra 8 secs on bleeds, it's ridiculously overpowered against players that cant heal themselves... full bleeds and slip away... watch him try to eat, then reopen with paralyzing strike and drop a stun rotation on him. The tank died in a similar fashion after evasion tanking him, I think he got me pretty low since they take such little dmg and have a free full heal, but wasn't anything I couldn't handle with refreshed stuns, malicious strike kiting and restealthing etc. The tank was a newb, the champion was a better player (seen him in WFs) but he literally had no chance.

    Mages, theyre a joke. You can full bleed them, slip away and watch them suffer. Same thing I did to the champion above. Clerics are the same, but you have to stay on them, and stun the heals!! I also have weapon barrage from bladedancer tree, ive gotten pretty good at silencing casts with it.



    In Warfronts... Ive only see one mage go Turret spec (GoS Pyro), and I think he rocked me with 75% of his hp left. That shield is crazy. I unloaded everything and his health barely moved. All other mages cripple at this level.

    Clerics... Some clerics I can't kill, I have no idea why they take no dmg, but some of them just dont. Im not sure what spec it is that allows them such insane survivability, but you'll run into 4/5 clerics that you can out dps with full bleeds (they do die slower than other classes, so pray none of his friends arrive), then every once in a while there will be one cleric that is totally pvp specced and he'll sit there trying to have a conversation with you while youre mashing your buttons.

    Jagged Strike -> Puncture -> (Malicious Strike) -> Backstab -> Impale -> ... then you start being situational...

    for Warriors/Rogues, I pop Evasion (50% dodge chance in bladedancer tree) and dps them down with Savage Strike, Final Blow

    for Mages, I'll stun them if I see them casting insta-DoTs... otherwise I just dps them down with Savage Strike, Final Blow.

    for Clerics, control the heals. Slip Away to a Paralyzing Strike, or use your Kick, or get Weapon Barrage from Bladedancer tree. Many clerics at this level await the burst, and don't realize how fast your bleeds choke them out with your spamdps on top of it.

    I'm a pretty good PvPer, and I can kill 95% of players my level with the majority of my cooldowns available. It takes a good amount of practice as well as a decent understanding of the game. But utilize your bleeds, theyre extremely strong before 50.
