You can't go wrong rolling an assassin if that's what you are asking. You likely won't spec as tank when all said and done if you want optimal performance. Prepare for QQ.

I feel no sympathy for the 'nerf assassin" folks though. The new breed is what you get and what you deserve for the crying to nerf the tanksins back in the day. The more crying done, really the better they hybrids became.

Assassins have been nerfed too hard and now no one wants one for PvP groups, especially not for rateds. Roll a DPS operative for the utility and damage assassins simply can't match.

assassin tank in pvp gear is still fun, as you get a grip and can stealth and a speed boost. Its fun to play, but I am not sure if the hardcore crowd likes it. Play for fun, play for yourself.

Lets just wait and see what will 1.7 bring. the game doesnt need too many changes to shift th attention back to sins and witness their return as a FOTM class. In fact all you need to do is nerf stun bubles and rage spec and it will be teams with half of them asassins all over again.
