Yeah, new mechanics seem unlikely to pass any sort of vote, imo.
Rogues would be better off with an eviscerate clone. Or maybe something else, and moving assassinate to being ever /15 instead of /30 so they had more burst damage (fighters have slay & eviscerate; rogues have only assassinate).
I actually dont hate this idea. Something cool and good, but not the same as fighter style captstone. Would it need 180 in stealth to buy then?What about if it were a one purchase passive (ala Combined Strike or United Blow) that adds the ability to add the doom carrier to your assassinates. How would that change its usefulness? Would that be something that would make rogues feel better about the purchase?
I actually hate this idea, purely because if Resist Curse isn’t actually that common right now, it sure will be afterwards. Plz don’t make Curse useless.
