    Default I need a morale boost

    I got to the point where I am seriously considering unsubbing. I think Rift is the best MMO on the market, but I am too frustrated by not being able to play Assassin at a competitive level.

    In PvE Assassin was never competitive, but just a support soul only useful to boost the main role. In PvP we were never able to kill anything but low rank undergeared players until 1.5 patch was released. After a couple of weeks from the release though, we were back to square one and with 1.6 we will be sent back to the pit of uselessness.

    Any encouraging thoughts?

    Uh, Assassin is one of our best melee DPS souls and completely viable for 9/11 HK fights.

    Unless your guild needs you interrupting or doing AOE (basic functions any other melee dps can perform)

    well. compared to 1.5..1.6 will be bringing a slight dps increase for the assassin. well, if you have the Synergy Crystal..and the 32 points in assassin for the asstalker build is basically everything good out of the sin tree combined with a few other trees.

    but i to love the assassin and the gentle assassin is what rift has. The assassin I imagine has like 5-6 different bleeds with numerous poison capabilities. Having Serpent Strike so far in the assassin root is what boggles me. They really need to bring it down in the root, or actually put it in the tree in the place of Slip Away and move Slip Away into the root at 51 points.

    I am currently playing around with a heavy bleed spec that utilizes a Deadly Dance Spike Charge bleed, in combination with the 3 other bleed, dot type skills out of the sin tree. Compared to rotations out there, this one requires precise timing. Will see..

    Our best melee DPS soul... that does not mean we are competitive with other souls and classes. Actually, quite the opposite, as our melee DPS souls suck, with maybe the exception of NB.

    In PvP we can only hide and run after failing to kill an equally geared x, where "x" is any other player who is not playing Assassin.

    My encouraging thought is that 1.6 will probably drive a bunch of people to jump ship to mage, which means, lots of mages, lots of new mages. And Assassin specs completely eat mages.

    I used to always solo pvp as assassin, mages are the hardest class to take down. Well played chlorolock with high renown are near impossible to take down, unless something has changed?

    I stuck with Rogue from beta till now. I never even leveled an alt (and I been playing since early access).


    I gave up. I am finally competitive in raids so I can dps, but now I'm already back to bard only. I'm leveling mage got lvl 25 in 2 days...

    Any no, not because Mages are OP, but because guild needs Mages (being 12/20 on Rogues is not fun! we have only 2 Mages and they are fully geared since no other mages around LOL)

    A big morale booster for me was that swtor was pretty boring. Since it is an mmo, most of your choices just dont matter since your cant effect the world in any way that will change things for other people.
    There is a chance bioware will polish the game up quickly, but i doubt it so it comes down to rift being the only thing to play... yeah! Super big morale booster... just remeber, things could always be worse, but not much.
