Wow, a lot of people can't play a Sith Assassin right...I roll a Madness spec and have no problem at all throwing out high DPS. Use MoX or SWMonitor. If you want to know who's lacking in DPS in your raids, I suggest you use one of those. SWMonitor is a lot better IMO. More information in the logs. If you know how to play a Madness Assassin well, you will definitely throw out a ridiculous amount of DPS.

Once the target is dead,we have to stay alive and go back home so we have to take hits and stay alive,we use light armor because we need agility. Also when you have to kill a jedi or a commander protected by one or more jedis, everything wont go well everytime.
We have a good offence but we need a good defense too if we want to achieve our duty and stay in one piece.

Thats why we are not LOLBURST and have the title of assassin
Guarding a healer is not only the job the the skill ''guard''. It is also your job to stay around the healer to be a plague for the people attacking the healer.

You be better off to try to kill the mob instead, and that's harder to do with a Maul build when target is facing you.
We can battle res. Force cloak + res = battle res

I've done this many time as a deception assassin to the love of my raid group... for any bit we lack in sustained dps we make up for in burst/utility.
