In regards to cunning deflection threads Haven said:
This is a known issue that the devs are taking a look at.

So....I can has damage on soldier without dieing?
"While it is much appreciated, to have such suggestions, I might want to add something:See the source
It is no secret that there might be issues with the Asassin. As the Dev Team always works on fixing these issues in order to make this class fun for everyone, it should be reasonable to wait for improvement suggestions until all the fixes on this class have been done, to get a clearer picture.
Remember the improvements you suggested are based on what you experience now. But what will be once the char has been "fixed" completely? Your suggestions might be outdated and needs an update again
So sometimes it is good to wait a few days longer, in order to make a suggestion, then giving feedback on something "unfinished" I hope you can understand, what I am up to "
The devs are aware of your feedback on these issues. (There have been several threads about this on the Live forums as well as several threads in the past on the Testlive forums).
Please remember that just because a thread does not get a blue or dev post, it doesn't mean that we haven't seen it or done anything about it
* Totem Torrent - Various gameplay changes have been made to improve the flow and speed of this minigame. The optional resurrection points have been removed. The capture areas have been moved into the north and south buildings (to the location of the old resurrection points). If you capture one of these new areas, your totem will be much more durable.
The EU servers will come down for the announced server merges on Wednesday, 14th January at noon GMT (13:00 CET). The duration is scheduled to last about 24 hours.
As always, every thread is read and all feedback is reported to the dev team. (Although a response to each and every thread is not always possible - they are ALL read).

The Assassin is also the most proficient class when it comes to stealth, and has a bit of an easier time sneaking around than the other classes in the game.
While Assassins are able to use crossbows and other forms of ranged weaponry, their strength is primarily in their ability to surprise and overwhelm their target quickly. Although one could accomplish this reasonably well with ranged attacks (...)
If skilled enough in sneaking around his chosen targets, the Assassin also has the ability to perform sneak attacks to further gain an advantage. He also has a number of abilities which have additional properties if used from stealth.
His “Lethargy” combos, for instance, will dramatically lower the damage output of his chosen target, while he can further increase this effect with his “Atrophy” feats in the Lotus specialized tree.
In terms of other specialized feat-based group utility, Assassins can train in many abilities which are quite useful, such as:
* “Cleansing Lotus”, which can remove poison effects from their group
Additionally, depending on the stance the Assassin is in at the time, their combos will take different forms and have slightly different effects corresponding with said stance.
he Assassin is a really great class for people who like having a large strategic toolset, many abilities on the hotbar, and high damage-dealing potential.
