Need fundamental help returning to game please

Hi everyone,

I've just come back to the game after about 9 months away. My Assassin is level 43, and I've gone for the classic 23-1-17 build, put my points in etc.

But I have to admit, I can't remember how to play this class AT ALL, can anyone help me with the very basics.

silly questions i need help with are :

what abilities are my bread and butter - and should be my main key bindings?
what abilities do I rarely or never use (ie more for sorceror, or different build)

whats a good basic rotation?

I'm going to focus on questing until I get back in the swing of it ;-)

Thanks for any help

It's more of a pvp build but the rotation should be something like:

Thrash until energize proc
Death field
Shock (if the proc didn't get one of them)
Maul (only when proced)
Then thrash and shock until assassinate with procced maul.

Something like that anyway.

You won't ever be using crushing darkness, unless if the target is sapped I suppose, but even then I'd favour for something like maul.
