Level 10 Shadow Explosion has 10 seconds cooldown with nice damage AND a chance to do DOUBLE DAMAGE on the enemy marked with Mark of Shadow. They said this skill has been buffed by decreasing its animation speed and 1 hit produced instead of two hits, making it EVEN faster to execute.
Level 10 Shadow Strike also has 10 seconds cooldown also with nice damage.
Combined, Assassin can do a minimum of 1500% damage and a maximum of 2500% if Mark of Shadow is applied. Not to mention the heavy crits that an Assassin can have.
... But really?
While skills are being upgraded beautifully, it still loses to majority of DPS classes like Rangers and Wizards which getting level 10 of their basic, most spammable skills.
Not to mention, Assassin's eqs (esp. weapon) is basically utter crap right now. Stats are poor in comparsion to other equipments. Claw's PATK is now equal to Dual Dagger's PATK which diminishes the ONLY pro of Assassin's weapon over Rogue's.
