As someone who runs well geared Jugg and Assasin Tanks, I know what you mean. Healers that have run with both my tanks in the same ops comment how the Juggernaut is a little easier.

On the other hand, I run in two groups that clear HM TfB and NM EC, and both have 1 Jugg and 1 Assasin. The fact that at critical moments an Assasin Tank can become immune to F/T attacks for 5 seconds once per minute can make all the difference. Just tonight in NM EC, we killed Firebrand and Stormcaller enrages. I taunt, pop Force Shroud to become immune to his damage, and the DPS finishes the job.

As an Assasin Tank you have different strengths and weaknesses. Expecting to operate the same as the other classes is a mistake and not playing to your strength.

As a side note, if you do not see the charges on Dark Ward diminishing, that means you are taking F/T and operate as needed.
