Well, leaving aside the hybrid discussion, aren't Feral Druids simply 'rogue-light?'

Assassin's are the 'rogue' force class. They have one tree oriented towards tanking, and a dps tree which uses stealth. I don't know about you, but any class which uses stealth and avoidance to such a high degree sure seems 'rogue' like to me.

Not this dead horse again. I don't even know where the "feral druid" part comes in, when their deception tree is, in some talents, a copy pasta of shaman enhancement tree. Down to the fact that voltaic slash does exactly the same thing as stormstrike, and is basically storm strike reworded.

Madness has talents which are a copy pasta of sham trees as well.

The only rogue-ish part of assassin gameplay is stealth and sap, thats all. Their backstab isn't even a backstab in a rogue traditional sense but just a positional attack that shouldn't be spammed but used on procs only. They have no good stealth openers and can start a fight just as well without stealth as with it.

Other than that, they use 50% spells / 50% melee attacks. How does that remind anyone of feral druid or rogue - beats me.

I'd make an assasin, not for the 'rouge' style, but just because of my love for Darth Maul!

How about this... Non of the class's are Rogue or shaman or druid because this isnt WoW... It is a completetly unique class that is different from anything else you have seen or played.. any and all similarities are just that... and are expected in any game where you need to melee / cast to kill something..
Just like the juggernaught isnt a warrior clone from WoW the Assassin isnt a Rogue clone from WoW either.. Treat it as the new class that it is and enjoy its diversity..

We need to escape these bonds of comparrison or the developers might start thinking " Ohh alot of complaints about no stealth openers... Maybe we should put in an Ambush move or something.... Next thing you know the game turns into wow because everyone expects these WoW like play styles..

"Clear your mind and enjoy what is"

I'm just glad that Assassins are still the minority cause I plan on making one.

Cite your source.

Not "just what Ive seen", because thats a pretty bold statement.
