    Default Why aren't the following ideas already apart of the assassin class?

    Charge + stun
    Two ways to get back into stealth from combat, or a shorter cool down on slip away
    Lower tier fear
    Root
    Armor debuff


    Because it would make the class viable in PVP/E.

    Why leave it off at assassins? Nightblades are actually worse than assassins in this patch (At least in the Melee rogue role). Play MM and the only specs you have to worry about are other rogues.

    NB: Ranged CPB, Ranged finisher, three oh **** buttons, magical damage, ranged snare, channeled root, and an ability that makes two other abilities not have CDs.
    Assassin: No CPB, No ranged finisher, 1 oh **** button, physical damage, one snare, perma stealth.

    The assassin's only decent form of CC is the melee 70% snare, which 9 times out of 10 will already be on a DR in a WF. So why don't we get a charge/stun? Or a fear that doesn't break on damage or x amount of damage.

    Rogues have a charge/stun

    Should probably check your souls if you didnt know about it.

    And as far as fear. We get blind, dark containment, gas cloud and mass subdue. Do these work as well as fear? a well timed one yes.

    simple, cause no soul is suposed to provide a solution to every problem and despite what people think here assassin is not some sort of generic basic soul that should be able to do everything from every other rogue soul.

    assassin has its strenghts and its downsides and should remain so, sneaky backstab playstyle is so rehashed and boring that it does not need to become some standard playstyle of this game to.
