Sure but as a rogue I get the same number of ripostes plus more burst attacks like assassinate.I don't know what your backstab / proficiency balance looks like, but if you're using riposte as your per day takeout fuel scout eviscerate is better than pretty much any pure scout assassinate.
Following up on this, parry is 4 more xp for a rogue than a scout, but dodge / evade is only 1 more xp for a scout than a rogue. If you really want to min max defensives, a scout probably does a better job at that too
Parry is 90% the same as evade. My point is a pure rogue gets twice the number of dodges and evades as a scout, more then making up for the parries.
I will be around 430 build when 2.0 hits. So my scout looks like:
1 doom blow
So I can do scout hitting 10s/20s with melee and 20 damage with a bow.
My Rogue looks like:
8 Improved Assassinate
1 doom blow
So swing 5 from the front, 21 from the back. Alot more burst attacks.
So my scout has 22 defenses. While my rogue has 21. For doing 5 less from the front, my rogue nets 20+ more burst damage/KO effects as well as more then double the amount of the best defense.
