i can't understand why this class had to get this many nerfs. it's a top parsing class but then again IT IS A DPS CLASS and should be on top of parse. i think that devs have listened the wrong people for the wrong reasons and is possible have broken assassin. ♦ shadow step could have been toned down by 25% maybe. ♦ caustic weaponry line of procs that every class received was and should have been toned down. ♦ the stifle and root durations was also wide spread but it seems you missed the ranger snare duration? ♦ carnage damage reduction i did not test so i can't comment on ♦ assassinate damage reduction should be removed unless you plan on making it's recast lower. at 15min recast it's ridiculous to nerf this ability. ♦ nerf to "draining mark" heal ability was uncalled for since the assassin class is required to be inside of aoe range and thus open to more damage than a ranger that is outside of most scopes of aoe's in pvp. i have tested these and i only agree that some are warranted because most other classes are being toned down as well. there was nothing broken about this class to warrant such deep damage reduction.
