    delscorcho got a reaction from Tiberius_Invictus in REVISED - Update 5.90 - Official discussion thread   
    5.90 is a huge leap forward in so many ways... I posted my experience on the test server last night in the Snap Test Feedback thread, but I wanted to drop it here, too, because I had so much fun playing and writing about the experience!
     
    Five Ninety: Hour One
    I was born a poor, human templar. My crow reanimated into a bald, red-bearded human vessel, and I immediately ran through the familiar stretch of Starter Forest--but everything looked clearer, and running felt smoother somehow. I know I say this every time I inhabit a new vessel, but it literally felt like I was seeing the same old world through a fresh set of eyes.
    At the end of the Noob Stretch, I found a weapon rack laden with all the Leveling Dust I could burn. Level 30 feels better than I remember.
    After picking up some legendary plate armor and a more-powerful Greatsword, I request a few Major Discipline runes from a nearby vendor-- and he laughs in my face!
    "Vendor Thralls cannot craft runes, m'lord! But I have infinity souls for your perusal, all at the low, low price of zero!"
    Confused, I look through a wide variety of items and eventually grab some Major Discipline-named Souls and crafting components, then I jump through a shimmering Rune Gate to the Balance temple and my jaw drops open. The Temple is more beautiful than I remember--in fact, it's objectively more beautiful than it's ever been.
    I scan the zone maps for an unoccupied fortress and immediately head there to check out the crafting recipes which are now visible at EVERY BENCH! No runes required-- and that's good news, because I'm still not entirely sure how to cram a soul into a rune... but I know just the type of bench where I can try.
    Five Ninety: Hour Two
    Gods be praised--the fort houses a collection of magical chests brimming with all the body parts you could ever imagine! Sure, it stinks... but it's INFINITY body parts crammed into a couple chests. Of course it stinks!
    I quickly revivify and assemble an Elken vessel at the Necromancy altar, complete with hand-picked parts to be a fiery, intelligent Confessor. You know, these goggles are really helpful! Before I was like, "What the heck! Where do the hands go?" But then I popped on these bad-boys *gestures to Goggles* and after a quick glance, BAM! "Oh, yeah! On the ends of the arms!"
     
    After transferring the Elken Confessor-to-be into my Spirit Bank, I decide to explore a nearby canyon which I'd passed on the way to the fort.
    And then: tragedy.
    Perhaps it was the way the wind rustled through the pine needles. Maybe my crow simply yearned to soar into the sky once more-- it's felt like an eternity since my crow flew unburdened from these dying worlds, free to rise above them and revel in the vessel-less atmosphere yet untouched by the Hunger. Lofty thoughts filled my mind with distractions...
    As my broken body laid upon the canyon floor, I wondered why I didn't pay more attention when I saw all those spider webs and cocoons.
    The memories are fresh as I transfer them unto you, yet even now they fade beyond recognition.
    I am a detached crow, flying through Rune Gates, lost and confused.
    So confused about where to reclaim my body that I posted on the forum, even!

    Fae Assassin is just really good for anything solo whether that's ganking or harvesting which is why you see a lot of them.
    They're not great in group fights.

    delscorcho reacted to Jagger26 in Will This Be The Theif? Stealing Please.   
    Shadowbane's Thief system was the best. if you failed to steal you stayed stealth but the person you tried to steal from got a message saying something like you feel someones hands in your pockets. If you successfully stole something you became visible to everyone and had to rely on your skill to escape with your stolen goods.  The players that got the steal messages then had to use aoe's or some kind of reveal skill to find the thief. The anti thief class was the scout who could track down a stealth thief reveal them and if played well was a solid one on one match to any thief, especially if the thief over spent in their peak, steal, and stealth abilities thus gimping their combat ability.
     
    Playing a Shadowbane thief was the most fun I ever had in a game to be honest. Miss it so much. My thieves guild I ran was hated server wide instant banes on any tree with mass turn out to ensure we never got one establish even when I would set the bane to go off at 4 am on a Tuesday night lol...

    Stealing was a major pass time and very entertaining part of Shadowbane that many of us have enjoyed.. will the Assassin have the ability to steal directly from a player's inventory as in SB?
     
    As the spiritual successor of SB I'd hate to see stealing not be implemented in LIVE.

    delscorcho reacted to WildOne in Assassin Worst Solo Class?   
    I have solely played the assassin since it came out on 5.4 on test and live. The assassin is the complete opposite of a gimped solo class.  Landing backstab is not difficult when the base kit and discs are used depending on the fight or situation. Backstab should not be spammed but rotated in when possible. Stuns/diffusion's/poisons/ disengage & reengage/ ult  allow for very high risk but rewarding play.  I'm in complete agreement with Yumx that the circle strafing and knowing when to use LMB over backstab are both extremely important.
    When you can properly utilize the base kit/discs,  killing armored classes is not a problem just a matter of skill and experience .  The right poison or disc can devastate healers and prevent/ reduce healing throughout the battle. I have successfully killed many targets(soft and armored targets that have advanced gear) within viewing distance of there guild or faction and gotten away clean.  Sometimes you do get caught but that all a part of the high risk/ reward gameplay. 1v2 1v3s are possible if you play your cards right. Knowing when and what targets to attack is key and can only be learned through experience.
