assasin best 2nd profession

the best second profesion would be a war cause the special assain profesion is critacle and the swordsmanship increase chance of a critical attack so u have 20%+ of landing a critcal attack

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't all IW attacks "miss", thus removing any possibility of a crit? No crit= unhappy assassin. :(
I think necromancer, mesmer, warrior and ranger are gonna be popular choices. Necro adds some self-heal and offensive capabilities as well as hexes to compliment the assassin's curses (the assassin will basically weaken his enemy and move in for the kill). Assassin/Mesmers will be very great monk killers, and warrior and ranger secondaries will suplly defensive stances to increase survivability.
I personally will be making an A/N.

However, the best thing to do would be to have a Me/W wielding Daggers and using Flurry.

I fought a IW A/Mes in CA tonite/this morning. The dmg output was pretty good. (was killed >.<)
Right now Im playing w/ a A/Mes using Fragility, Black Mantis, Temple Strike, and Twisting Fangs. Its a pretty decent build that's still being tweaked. I have it posted over at the Mes forums.

Most of the Mesmer damage-dealing stuff should also work well for Assassins. For example, I used to "assassinate" targets using Conjure Phantasm from behind a wall (with no near path to me from my foe). If you can't kill them up close, you can at least cheese them.

On anything else, it's a two-handed melee weapon with a poor damage range (dagger's max 7-17 vs. sword's max 15-22). Even staves are better. IW Me/W are better off with axes or swords.
