    No, the soul is disabled in PvP.

    Uh, no, you aren't. There's a talent in Assassin that makes Stealth last indefinitely.

    It'll still break when you attack anyone, though, and you won't be able to restealth in combat unless Slip Away is up. In general, Assassin is more of a gimmick spec than anything else-- it's great for 1v1 and burst, but in an actual teamfight, it's often inferior to other options, most notably Marksman.

    Assassin is however quite overpowered at making baddies QQ.

    When there were more populated pvp shards, assassin was more or less the go-to spec for outdoors anything. Questing, ganking, whatever.

    The ability to pick who you want to fight, when you want to fight them and an option for disengaging whenever you want is pure gold for roaming the open world solo.

    In WFs... they're not exactly spectacular.

    Nobody's written one, because, as noted earlier in the thread, Assassin is not very good at PvP.

    It is not good overall for WF's. Open world, it is king though. In WF's you're going to want to be ranged. MM/Rng is what you want.

    Jupiter would know

    Pulling off ganks as an assassin in warfronts isn't easy, you'll be outnumbered, outsustained, hounded... but it just feels that much better with each sucker that falls for our cheap tricks. Smart players won't fall for any of it though.

    ... when there was any to be had. Your average player on pvp shards in the past just hides in town all day =|

    And now there's one, and world pvp in this game is effectively dead.
