    Default Slip away is Trion's way of telling you "Sorry you don't have the dps to solo anyone"

    Think about it this way, if Trion provides you with a reset button, then they have to balance the class around needing to use it. That means (just like with paladins) that if you have this ability, you will NOT have the dps to solo a target, and SHOULD NOT have the dps to solo a target, unless you use that ability.

    Pretty lazy devs/programming if you ask me. I'd rather not roll a gimp thank you.

    Slip Away is Trion's way of telling you that its ok to play poor positionally, because you get a 'get out of jail free' card.

    all slip away threads:

    people that have never played assassins trying to convince people that are playing assassins that what they know is wrong.

    Yeah man, healers totally don't deserve to play the game like everyone else.
    They exist to just get instant killed and give favor. Like pinatas for everyone with stealth or a charge.
    Oh, except those pesky mage healers. They're tough. Chainmail covered pinatas.

    Think of rogues as a surgical strike. They don't look for solo kills, they look for opportunities to tilt the battle.

    Speak for yourself. Whitefall is the most fun when I'm soloing basically every class (except the popular necro/chloro and paragon which i get 3-shotted by)...then again, all could change when my alt hits 50.

    How ironic. Especially coming from a rogue.

    Yea, that was a little pompous of me to speak for all rogues. I was more kidding than serious.

    I'll think of you the next time I'm in Whitefall and I kill the stone carrier and return the stone 1 V 3. I usually wait to slip away until after I do all of that though.

    Cool story except for the part about you killing anybody.

    Apply dots.

    Works like a bloody charm.

    This has been a thing with you for going on... 6 months now?

    and the magic dots they are immune by using another rogue power... So its "poof" "magic immune" and "slip away" all at the same time.... and thus a mage or cleric can't DoT.... oh wait thats half the callings... Sorry but the BS flag has been thrown down on that statement.
