So in essence, the assassin is like a rogue with some Force capabilities? Are there a lot of positional requirements with this class?
My whole thing is that I wanna specialize in lightsaber combat, but I love the sneaky stealthy aspect as well. Force powers like hurling lightning...eh, I can do without. If that makes any sense.
It's a fairly even mix of force and saber. You will be using a lot of short range instant cast lightning blasts (shock and discharge). It's similar to an enhancement shaman in that respect.
Concerning positionals, you'll ideally want to get behind your target about every 10 seconds for a Maul.
