Sin/shadows have ability exit the combat like scoundrel overload stealth belt..i am talkin about all builds thats possible..A lot of stuns.BW have problem as Bubble stuns,commando/merc,i dont think they will look now at shadows/sins

Would be nice if somebody explained the decision behind giving Deception another CC. Why Force Stun and spike is not enough? What was the reasoning behind giving them yet another CC and on such a ridiculously low CD? It's not that assassins have difficulty mauling somebody.

I was unaware of deception 'sins getting another cc. I am willing to bet after watching the vid you are refering to low slash?

Looking for a response on your end first.

...and to Multitrop, I will break things down tomorrow sometime.

yes, low slash. Why 15s CD? Is Deception unplayable without it?

The class has a very high skill cap; put a pro in the hands of a merc, mehhh whatever. Put a pro in the hands of this class, you have a monster. It seems op yet you put a bad here and they're just as bad as a merc begin played by a bad.

This is the problem, necessarily the "class" itself

It would kind of suck if low slash wasn't there. When I run this spec I mainly use it as a setup for maul. It can be used for stalling and an interrupt but sense its weapon based damage it can be block, dodged, parried, and missed so not a guaranteed CC and it does break on damage and is in the 5th tier of the deception tree so I just don't see it as an issue.

You should be getting a decent amount of protection in every match (unless you are guarding of course).

Interesting, I don't usually have problems with using maul, seems like a waste of a global. I typically use it as a straight up CC with intent to use the entire 4sec of the mezz. I rarely use it as a short "stun" to set up an attack. Most commonly use it to stall one of many people attacking a healer, stall one of two people I'm fighting (since one low slash + hard stun give you enough time to complete the 1v1), or like you said, as an interrupt (especially for snipers w/o entrench up).
