Eventually, but your aoe capabilities are somewhat different depending which skill tree you use.

Darkness gets wither and dark charge's discharge.

Otherwise its overload and lacerate (which you get at level 24) for the two other spec.

Lacerate is a saber spin, that deals low damage, and is a very good way to empty your force in 5 seconds. Use is limited to nuking weak thrash mostly.

As far as DPS goes, sorc have it better in the AoE department than assassin does.

Assassins aren't a strong AE class, but whenever you do like 100% more DPS than the closest guy, other classes will say you were padding your stats with AEs.

I wish they would change lacerate into a channeling ability, as the assassin npcs do, where they stand there spinning while a channel bar ticks down. that would be awesome. instead of reclicking over and over.

Spinning Strikes is done by NPC using staff-like weapons I'm pretty sure, not Assassins.

Madness also gets Death Field.

But, that isn't all, as Madness spec can have Death Field (even if it is 3 target only)

Force storm says otherwise.


And my bad for forgetting Death Field. Madness is the one spec that never really appealed to me, so I'm unfamiliar with the finer mechanics.
