    Default Assassin is a dot class?

    most skills for assassin is poison and say something like, "give 250dmg over 10 sec"

    i guess we need more burst dmg for get in and out

    sin is for sustained dmg, not burst.

    Stack the bleeds and win.

    When you get used to it, you can even use slip away early and watch them die to bleeds

    You will find you have much more success when you stack up the bleeds, rather then try to rely on your instants.

    Agree and disagree :-p

    I'm looking at this as a PvP view, rather than across a 5 minute fight. Just so you know where i'm coming from :-p.

    Stacking DoTs does not make it a primarily sustained damage class. Their primary damage comes in the first combo. They CAN sustain damage, but a pure assassin does more at the start of their chain.

    After a while in a longer fight(PvE raid) that initial burst won't matter and as you said, you'll be stacking up poison and bleed effects.

    This is just wrong.

    Stacking dots DOES make it a sustained damage class, primary damage does not come from the first combo if you play it this way, you simply overwhelm the target with dots, making it impossible to heal through.

    Pvp view also, you will quickly find you have much more success when you switch to stacking dots rather then relying on instants, im not the only one with this view, the alpha is full of them and i speak from experience, having tried both.

    That is 1 really really REALLY unskilled rogue right there.....also attakin a class he should really be ignoring doesn´t help and he obviously has hardly any HP, just look at what the 600crit dmg took from his hitpoints, 1/4 of the bar? The rogue should be at 3.5K hp at that level...not 2.4k.

    If played right The Sin class will be able to take out any other class before most of there bleeds run out. YES THIS IS A DOT CLASS, anyone else that says other wise does not play the class the way its ment to be played, I wish I had videos of my Sin, I show you.

    Play sin as a dot class and play it right, pick a good soul with it either NB or RS its a great class You dont need burst dmg to be good in PVP. The burst this is just a shock and aw and is over rated.
