Different fights have different mechanics. Some really work well with Assassin tanks.

One example in the Fabricator in KP. I've healed a Juggernaut tank and a Powertech tank on that fight. The Jugg/PT is much more dependent upon their armor, and healing is a lot more stressful. This is often solved by swapping tanks to let the armor debuff drop off.

But an Assassin can easily tank the Fab without a swap, with my Sorc solo healing the whole fight. The shield/mitigation/self heal really helps there.

HM Fireband is another example. While a tank swap is helpful, it isn't that hard to heal through incinerate armor on an Assassin.
