Returning to Live and trying to catch up on playing an assassin and seems like so much has changed. I’m just trying to play catch-up at this point! So I have a few questions if some current assassins can help me out -Prestige line - seems like most people have gone left side but in all my trials I am not getting much dps out of Nightblade. I’ve been using it before FF chains and also tried using it on cooldown to build increments and it just never seems to do much damage. Am I using it wrong? I’m at least getting a bit more damage out of carnage. And a lot of people aren’t using caustic weaponry anymore. Are there better options? - FF Chains - I’ve been using the same chain I’m use to but that’s probably wrong at this point. Damage from some of the CAs dont seem to be adding much to FF. And working in the randomness from assassinate recasts is kinda crazy. I’ve thought about starting with assassinate to try to add as much to FF as possible but haven’t trialed it yet. Do multiple assassinates all add to FF dmg? Just curious what other assassins are doing. -Ascensions - had research time into a few etherealist abilities so have stuck with it but I’m wondering if thaumaturge is better for assassin with the focus on nox damage. Or if it even makes a difference. Seems like everyone is etherealist. Thank you in advance for the responses. Been looking through the forums but nothing current seems to cover my questions. And most current answers just say to betray to ranger which isn’t an option!
