Assassins can combat res, it is true!

Found this out on the weekend.

Turns out:

Force Cloak + ress party member does indeed work since Force Cloak takes you out of combat. I managed to ress a healer mid boss fight (the mandalorian raiders boarding party) and win.

Sure this is a bug / over-sight, since I thought only Seers could combat ress. Might as well make use of it while available.

Force cloak is supposed to make you leave combat.
You can res players at out of combat.
You can combine 2 skills to perform better.
Its like low stash , moving backward and maul.

Thats neat!

It does seem unintended though.

For example, in WoW, a rogue can vanish, but as soon as he tried to gnomish shock engineering thing (i totally forget the name) he'd be put into combat and it would fail.

Should do low slash, move behind to crushing darkness and then maul as soon as it casts.

Unfortunately you use Force Cloak as a DPS cooldown as deception, so it will likely be on cooldown when needed. Good tip for madness assassins though, and possibly for an off-tank.

That's assuming Vanish didn't bug out from the start, which it always did (usually does in this game too, unfortunately).
