    Default NB/sin does less dmg now

    What did they do? I used to do like 22k in nbsin, now i do 18. Is there a new spec?

    I think the major thing is the fact of Assassin changes have forced to either do another spec or not at all. I mean this has happen in the past where NB/Sin went bad and the came back so might be its lul time again

    How does making one spec do more dps make another spec do less dps?

    Are the changes to Savage Strike and Final Blow (not doing anymore bonus damage when behind the target) really hurting the spec that hard (-4k dps) considering you can now do a -25% damage Backstab on front instead of another Savage Strike?

    The only dps you lost was 5% on savage strike when behind the target which is less than 100 dps loss. If you are seeing 4k dps loss then you are doing something wrong or you found a bug. I don't see any such drop in my nb/sin dps.

    Agreed, I have not seen any difference, still works as intended.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    That's odd, I got slightly more dps now now that Backstab has no positional requirement.

    I do way less damage with Assasination in PvP, its even near useless now. Nightblade is the only viable option for melee rogue now.

    This is because the global damage reduction in PvP has been increased. No, Assassin has not been nerfed.

    Also lost some from poisons assuming that is where you pulled points from for advanced flanking. With all the poison mods its not huge but all the same another drop.

    4k is way off for sure. But depending on your respec im sure you lost some though if it was 500 id be shocked, on a dummy fight aka pbb mini there will be a mild dps drop but being able to use bs w/o being behind is a buff on most every other fight.

    Nothing was changed that would cause this kind of DPS loss. However, that doesn't rule out that there could be a bug somewhere along the line. Please let me know if you find out more information on this.
