A Darkness assassin who knows the Deception rotation and how to time his stun break and cooldowns will absolutely maul the Deception assassin (no pun intended). Deception is an unbelievably squishy spec, and a lot of its damage reduction is irrelevant to the damage that Darkness does (e.g. Wither is not considered AoE damage). If a Deception assassin isn't able to burst down the target fast, they're really in a heap of trouble. Correctly timing its CDs, Darkness can escape the first 10-15 seconds of a fight with a Deception assassin with well over 80% of their HP intact. That's basically game over for Deception at that point.
