I didn't do deadly throws at 5 combo points because it was doing barely more damage than ST was and costs almost twice the energy, so I see it as likely being a utility only ability for interrupts. Most people, myself included seem to think that assassination would be most suited to a ST build, at least on paper. The passives assassination gets just seem so much better for a low energy cost spammable skill, but my little test is telling me otherwise.
Does this make sense to anyone? Or, if my results seem weird, please tell me what I'm doing wrong.
