    Default Need help with assassin build.

    I really want to play an assassin build but I am new to the idea.

    This is what I have in mind so feel free to yell at me for being dumb if needed. I won't take offense.

    Thanks in advance for any helpful comments.

    You didn't mention pvp or pve but from a pvp perspective:

    Not a bad build but I'd take Puncture and get at least 32 points in sin for Impale.
    Puncture and Subterfuge is a nice combination for a quick 5 points Impale bleed = Opener (preferably Jagged Strike) -> Puncture -> Impale, and if you have Serrated Blades (although a minor bleed, which I'm not really a fan of atm), you suddenly have a lot bleed dmg going within a short notice. This works in both pve and pvp ofcourse.

    I'm a fan of positional skills so I'd always take Double Cross, stacked with Imp. Final Blow and you got yourself a flat 30% dps boost to FB.

    I feel Rift Guard is better switched out for Rift Barrier, because the time and combo points you spend on getting Rift Guard up are better invested in actual dps skills.

    With these changes it would look something like: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...o.VcbchsbRkz.V

    In the end I'd probably switch out NB with Infiltrator to get the CC breaker and Cloudy Poison.
    Just my 2 cents

    Sorry that I forgot to mention this is purely for PvP. I see what you mean with the Rift Barrier. I thought about the bleeds but didn't know how useful they would be. Will take this into consideration when I change the spec.
