    Default Anyway to beat MMs as Assassin?

    I try, but they just run off. I tried adding marksman but that didn't work either. Any tips? I really like Assassin, and I don't wanna go NB/RS just to have a slightly higher chance when in fact they can just shoot you in the face when your in melee anyway.

    You don't even need the Slip Away there. Your bleeds will take him down just fine. If the guy managed to get away, just use your teleports to catch up (since you're playing a Sin/RS hybrid anyway, right...?) and finish him off.

    Some of the smarter MMs are playing in Guardian Phase when they expect a sin to open on them anymore.

    And that changes things how? They'll still die. Bleeds ignore armor, they'll have reduced damage and they won't be healed to max health when switching to Guardian Phase. It's only a good thing for you, them having 30% less damage.

    Are we talking Warfront or world? In OW an MM is going to have Guard up, and most likely a mirror, bleeds proc the mirror. You wont kill them in one rotation unless you are picking on fresh 50s

    In open world, people don't play MM/RS. Not on my server anyway. Besides, you'll still **** them with any good Sin hybrid spec (gogo Fel Blades). If you die as an Assassin after getting the opener vs a Marksman, you're doing something wrong.

    Fell blades doesnt do anything to item procs. Decent MM's are rare so I wouldn't doubt not seeing many.

    Then bleed, MM for the most part is the softest rogue.

    In 51sin/15mm I'd just open on mm w/ paralyzing strike... by the time he'd break free he was normally bleeding too much to put any hurt on me. Plus it's always fun to let them think they got away and fire off a rapid fire shot.
