Are we back to arguing about stealth classes again? People seem to not comprehend that once a rogue is exposed, they are exposed. leaving them in a weaker combat state and everyone is going to try and take him or her out. The major whine people usually have is they get 1 shot by a silent assassin, which is exactly what the archtype is suppose to do. which begs the question if you don't want that, then why put it in? Trying to prolong a rogues combat ability outside of stealth results in the bastarrdization of the warrior class. If people took a step back, and looked at this from a group perspective, yes you may die or be critically injured but your team mates will now be alerted to the presence of a 'stealthy' which is now in a sub par state and can be taken out relatively easily. Like wise, if your holding a position, then your team mates should be patrolling anyway. you know, Teamwork and such?
