Right. This is the forums. Isn't that what is supposed to happen?

There is lil you can do against a shadow/tankasin. there is nothing this class cant do, the have stealth, mitigation,high dmg burst speed cloak and just when you think you have them dead poof they vanish and are gone to heal up and come back and do it again. So a guy smashes you once big deal you see him slowly running up to you and you know to avoid him or burn him, with all the shadow/sins its impossible to see it or prevent it. So my gripe is this....quit griping about 5 smahers when these stealth classes run rampant and no one complains. Oh wait the people griping about smashers ARE the OP stealth classes, nice to turn the attention somewhere else and take the focus off your OP asses
Damn those 31/31/31 spec'd shadows and sins. Damn them straight to hell!!! On a serious note, no one single spec of the AC has all of the characteristics you've described. It's a give and take. Unlike marauders... This post is incredibly ironic as well. Your last sentence is actually what you're trying to do yourself.

The thing is if those smashers have like 3 healers there going to be killing much faster because while the shadows might have better single target damage the just like 2 smasher can drop most of a team to almost death or death.

assassin/shadow are the strongest class overall, period. I've been saying htat for months, our guild has known that for months. Problem is, there are only about 2 or 3 assassins on our server that play them correctly.

Smash spec may lead warzones in damage and give you big hits and such, but try guarding a node in that spec. With all the maps that require you to guard a node, i would take a team full of shadows/assassins over a team of smashers any day. For example, ancient hypergate is just ridiculous with a bunch of stealth on 1 team. Just my opinion though.

I once had to defend against 4 assassins 2 operatives on voidstar. It was an extremely stressful experience.
