No.pure npc killing
No.consider full degen builds
Not possible sir.kiting while KDed
None of these are very good at all.Crippling dagger works if you don't mind the half range. Siphon speed is good to support the chain too. Winters embrace
This applies to any split template, but the thing is, any other split template will also be useful at doing other things.Footmen are pushovers. Also, don't worry about troll unguent. By the time the archer activates it, he should be dead. knights can be pulled and killed if the opposing team is unattentive. Bodyguards can be killed too.
You need to stop thinking solo this, solo that, solo everything.
If you're splitting, by definition, your team is either built for it, or it's forced.
If the first is true, you're not going to split alone, in which case your build is pretty much useless.
It won't kill defenders, has no party support excet bad snares that are easily cleared by either FF or PnH nowadays.
It's also extremely bad for your team when forced into 7v7 or 8v8 fights.
If the second scenario is true, you won't have an assasin anyways, since they're bad at stand fights and will need to be in a teambuild made for splitting.
The only really half-viable assasin template at the moment is WC:
[wastrel's collapse][falling spider][horns of the ox][falling lotus strike][twisting fangs][shock][conjure lightning][Dash]
This bar is an actual threat to defenders and npc's being defended as well as for skirmishes and short duration 8v8 play during collapses.
Also, why res a thread that has clearly concluded everything there is to conclude?
