PVE

If you want to tank, Assassin is the hardest tank to play, but if played correctly, it is usually the best tank for endgame Ops.

If you want to heal, Sorc is your choice.

If you want to DPS, Assassin has just become a viable endgame melee dps. Sorc madness is now a pretty good ranged class WITH mobility.

They just became FOTM's, and not overpowered, so they both are unlikely to change for awhile.

I would say Sorc, not because the damage is higher but its just easier to play in flashpoints. Range dps is just a bit easier to play in my opinion. In Boss fights with big AOE damage as a Sorc you can stay at max range and keep dotting, you also have a much better overview of the fight (that's just my experience) A melee has to keep running around and sometimes out of range of most of his damage abilities.

I play both, both are great. I would say that assassin is more mobile than a sorc though. Sorc is dependent on casting force lightning to obtain wrath which means that they have to be standing still, an assassin can proc wrath while running around.

i'd say sorc, because he has 2 viable dps trees and sins dont. Also lightning is really funny to play and cool to watch.

Both deception and madness are "viable dps trees"....
