Assassins take skill to play.. Maybe u lack it? I enjoy Shade,Neph and sometimes Vamp Ma's. Assasins r by far 1 of my favorite classes

Click it twice incase they dodge, since everyone out there plays a rogue.

that's only because you've never built one right. The GM PB, 9 second ranged stun, and chilling shadows are the three powers that make it better than opposing rogue classes. Atr's not a problem when the other person is unable to use weapon powers (most importantly, atr cut) for 30 out of 40 seconds.

Vampire Rogue Assassins are also fun to utilize.

Pure glass build of all int. Kill almost anyone before the stun wears off. This is one of those builds that just insults peoples' intelligence because it will either die in 1 hit or kill you during an extended stun.

I've played together with Omnius for years - so just teasing him.
It's a fun toon to go all INT in small scale pvp, but in larger scale events such a toon drops too fast, unfortunately.

I had alot of fun on a elf RA, left con at base and maxed int and dex (focused on int). Had a pitiful amount of HP (honestly one good bleed could drop me) but with PoV Shadow daggers he lasted a pretty good while. I didn't play him long, but the best fight I had was a HG huntress that I fought straight up. (The pet made it impossible to just pellegorn to death anyways).

So yeah, Min con elf RA. Fun? yes. practical? no.

With the extra trains I was able to build it for support and dps. I played it pretty much nonstop. I had a vamp that was a better support character, primarily due to the mana = health thing, but it wasn't nearly as fun for other things.

P.S. I am 100% sure I can play a human mage support assassin better than you can play -ANY- flavor of support mage assassin.

Of course I love the Irekei BP assy, both in SD and staff flavors.

Human RA shadowdagger is certainly a viable build, with really the only trouble for them being def shades.

The extra trains by going human and class weapon really allow you to round them out. ATR is capped around 2200-2300 or so without resource gear.

I find that to be enough in most cases with an assy.

What is the best assassin for large scale GVG?

I would say Vampire RA. No kills, but gets the job done very well.

Human MAs are amazing, get good.
I hope this isn't sarcasm because I agree 100% with the statement.
