Mercs are actually pretty terrible node guards... snipers are decent at it, stealths are honestly the best at it, but outside of that the best node guard is probably a powertech because shoulder cannons.

The point is, stealth capping is something a shadow has the potential to do that my guardian cannot do. Again, its a hit and run playstyle. Backstabby classes aren't my thing personally but assassin is obviously supposed to be a bsckstabby type class.
