    Just focusing on PvE, assassins are just slightly behind nightblades in DPS. They are ahead of marks and ranger in single target and lagging behind sabs and some warrior souls (which are getting their damage fixed/nerfed next patch.) PvE wise, assassin dps is about where it probably should be. I can't see them adding that much more damage without screwing up PvE balance unless your goal was to make assassin the new beastmaster.

    WHile that is right, test it out on a fight with movement. Assassin has no compensation for having to move for mechanics, but NB can spam Twilight Force with their cd or FS/Flame axe finisher.

    And the OP should go back to WoW.

    If you choose to play on a PvP server, it’s our assumption that you not only don’t mind that level of interruption from that PvP attack-and-defense style of gameplay, but are actively excited about taking part in it. If you want uninterrupted PvE questing, choosing a PvE server is definitely recommended. - The RIFT Development Team

    Yeah... "pick the target", waiting for stealth, have stealth broken by DoTs over and over...lots of time running around doing nothing, while everyone else blows sh!t up and does damage. If we have to hit and run for short periods and can't burn through any healing, then there's a problem. We need heal debuffs or an overall damage increase considering the risk of being squishy and having to be in melee range.

    you think a class that can reliably kill casters, probably most rogues and a fair share of the clerics from stealth before the target can respond is broken ?

    You have never played a SIN that is obvious. You try an attack a warlock, or a mage in general at 50 after they have been farming their shinys, you will die in less than 5 seconds flat.
