Every sin guide I've seen is for INT based stuff and I keep hearing INT sins suck now. And I'm VERY n00b at EQ 2 anyway. I don't understand proc, AA, ANYTHING. SMILEY

Can someone PLEASE gimme the newest guide to sins? I play on Everfrost, its not a pvp server. I'm not n00b at mmorpgs, just eq 2, but I'm liking it a lot so far.

I'd appreciate any sin gear guides, leveling, ANYTHING please.

Thanks in advance to anyone nice enough to help. SMILEY

That depends on what you mean, really.

First, assassins, as with all rogues, need Agility and lots of it.  Our abilities are all based on it.

Second, we need stamina for more health.  Yeah, we are rogues and in groups and raids we should not be getting hit, but being the aggro magnets we are it happens.  More health is a good thing.

Third, some wisdom is good because it affects our spell resists.  I wouldn't sacrifice agility or stamina for it, but it is useful.

That leaves strength, which is only useful for how much you can carry, and intelligence which now does absolutely nothing!  It used to affect how well our poisons work, but not now.

The other option for your question has to do with the AA lines.  I am far from being an expert here, but it seems that the int line is not really useful and that the str, agi and wis lines are better choices.

Really, though, I am far from being an expert on the assassin class, so your mileage may vary!

#1  We are not sins.  Keep calling us sins and no one will take you seriously.

#2  We are not rogues.  Keep calling us rogues and no one will take you seriously.

#3  With the expansion less than a week away, its no use trying to give you rules.  Its all about to change, TBH.  What conandar said is pretty close for the current game (if you ignore continually calling us rogues), but for instance in DoV, wisdom will be worthless too.  I'm not even sure str will still affect carrying capacity. 

#4 The best advice I can give you for learning how to play any class is to go to a website we're not supposed to link on the official forums because they allow cussing.  I can't link it, but I think I'm allowed to tell you its called eq2flames.  Go with a thick skin though. 

#5 Conandar was almost right about the AA lines too, except for the wisdom line.  After str and agi, its a toss up between the int line and going far enough in the sta line to max out AE auto attack.  Actually, the best advice I can give you on AA is to show you an AA calculator.  This is (I think) the aa spec I'm running right now.  Play with it, read the descriptions.  They are very accurate.  The guy who put it together did an excellent job.  I hope he updates it for DoV.
