Assassins are OP on this server. CRAZY OP at low level but even at high levels.
I don't want an across-the-board nerf - but, Garrote is being spam'd now because it is THAT GOOD.
I mean you get a 60% snare on a 0.74 growth rate attack.
Force assasins to choose between 60% snare or high damage.
Giving them both for a lvl 18 style is too much.
They still have a high growth rate (1.03) on the followup so this is not a huge nerf to lvl 50 peeps.
This affects low level BGs more but that is the balance that is needed.
Stealthers are on the lowest damage table. Which is 18 for your info. Just for reference a tank is on 23. So a stralther attacking with even a 1.03 growth rate is going to do similar damage to a light tank using a taunt style .59 growthrate
If you take 180×2.03 and 230×1.59 you actually get 365 which proves my point
They are not on the lowest DMG factor and "tanks" are not on factor 23, the only class on 23 is a warrior. Look it all up yourself if you want to spout dmg table information that is not correct, but by doing this I'm going to instantly figure that the rest of your post is probably inaccurate as well talking about comparable dmg, which doesn't mean anything since the "sin" is also fighting with debuffs/poisons which should go into the dmg consideration.
Honestly even my rr3L4 Blades BM with det 6, no IP, and purge 2 does fine against most stealthers a couple RR above him. Assuming they ever attack me or don't just all vanish and run... or it's not half a dozen of them.... The few fights I've had have usually been vs hunter+SB or Inf + scout and I usually drop one of them. I run a Dex/Quick Debuff proc weapon and a Str/Con debuff charge... evens things out nicely. Honestly after the double debuff and landing a Spectrum Blade or Blizzard melee stealth damage is pretty much non existent. I think the biggest issue tanks have is so many of them do nothing but spam their anytime.... against a guy who is actually using all of his styles.
That said they beat the crap out of my poor VW to the point I stopped playing him
I'd MUCH rather fight a SB or an Inf than a Mini, Necro, Thane or Skald. Just like I'm sure people much prefer fighting a NS to a Champ.
My only issue with melee stealth is they mostly just vanish and run. I'd rather see them buffed and vanish removed. Sucks running around looking for a fight for an hour only to have the guy vanish... go afk and go back to camping lowbies when the timer is up. I'd much rather die 60% of the time against a stealther because he's overbuffed than to just have them vanish all the damn time. Maybe if bleeds prevented this or something... ehh. Would actually make sense... follow the blood trail and all that.
