They were parsed by some of the best players and are 500 dps less than other classes. Bottom of the barrel by far. What is the excuse for this. We arent even the only stealth class

Their burst should be toned down...

The reason they parse so low is that they have extreme burst. If they had all the opening burst they have right now with enough dps afterwords to hang with the other top DPS classes, they'd be absurdly overpowered.

Now I'm speaking from deception/infiltration point of view. They could make balance/madness spec a more viable pve DPS spec.

I know of another spec that does it. Insane AOE burst and pretty decent sustained damages. Absurdely overpowered .
Sins are okay. They could certainly use a more usefull 51 ability and a slightly better survivability.
Apart from that ppl calling for a nerf don't know what they're talking about.

So, you're saying that Rage Marauders have sustain DPS?

Maybe slightly, although I wouldn't say so for the sake of arena balance. But against 1 sad soul, probebly yeah.

Outside of that, our burst is just our trade-off for the fact that we don't do any sustained damage. We are the class that supplies the killing blows and sits in the corner for the rest of the fight.

IF you're wanting to fix assassins/shadow's dps that wont help at all in pvp....their burst is amazing probably the best in game if you play them right and time CC accordingly, I can solo most healers in partasin if i catch them without a CC breaker. leave us alone in we're fine the low percent of sustained dps difference does matter in pvp at all if you play the class the way its meant to be played, which is strike from the shadows burst your emeny as much as u can if you dont get a kill vanish, rinse, and repeat.
