Then, I found that a 10L zerk specced for solo with dual reflex 5 (a lot of points) can defeat an assassin, but for sure you had vanish down... and if you complain about reflex attack (that few players have both for the required points and for the play style), many can complain about Viper (that every assassin has).
lmao, a lot of sins don't have it. I have it to 3 on my NS and 2 on my inf. I think exo don't have it at all.
Viper is not on the same level as RA. It's impossible to kill a solo light tank 1vs1 with RA if you are a melee(you would have to kite, but they all have snare styles, if they are good, you can't escape). You can't apply poison AFK, you can't kill 2 melee hitting you at the same time with poisons (you can kill 3 people with a merc with RA 5, you don't even have to fumble).
Assassins were thought with the weapon switch in their design. If you don't apply your poisons after purge you are dead. That's why they have one of the worst damage table of the game. They kill with poisons, you know, because they are assassins!
PS: if you play your hero with only 1 LW, you don't play your class well. Hero has LW with add damage 11.3 that you need to switch when it procs. You also need to play with a spear to rear snare. Bm/Merc can't hold a shield and a left hand, so they need to switch too. My BM has 3 weapons (debuff d/q, haste, LT) and 2 shields (add dmg and abla) I can go and and on and on.
