    Default The mobile Assassin

    So this build is meant to maximize burst. I haven't tested it, but it was an idea I had a while back. Basically, you Assassinate twice. Every 2 minutes (in theory) you should be able to bring anything down. Here's the rotation: Stealth>Shadow Stalk>Assassinate>Foul Play>Blade Tempo>Puncture>Deadly Strike>Slip Away> Assassinate. If they're still alive, build 2 more CPs with a Keen>Precision and use DS again. You have ridiculous mobility and tons of +damage with all your buffs from teleporting and BT up.

    Again, if the burst from 2 assassinates in 6 seconds is enough to kill anything if Foul Play stays up. No heals+massive burst= sad enemy.

    Thoughts?

    Forgot to include Expose Weakness. Also I'd rather use Shadow Shift before opening instead of Shadow Stalk, since stalk is a port to the enemy and also a CC break.

    It's my understanding that Stalker and Guardian phases have been switched on the PTS, so 16 RS wont get stalker phase after the patch.

    That's not really a good spec, as it will absolutely have its **** pushed in by any mage.

    Try this spec.

    Assassin and cleanse soul can never be separated.

    Neither can Slip Away and Hidden Veil. I'd go 40/16/10.
