The Sneaky-Stabby Project

First of all, this has nothing to do with goblins. Yeah, I know, you’re disappointed, I know! Don’t forget to grab all the muck you brought in here with you on the way out. Thanks!

Size matters

I have played most order careers up to at least tier 3. The one I haven’t is a slayer. So I thought I’d see what all the controversy is about.

Arguably, an armor debuff is going to have just as big of a value on a single healer than the healing debuff. And I really didn’t fancy stacking weaponskill for armor penetration. I intended to play him to tier 3 at least, since that’s when you really get specialisation options, and then decide whether I’m going to continue leveling him. What happened was, that I played him to late tier 2 and then decided to drop him and rather reroll a Slayer. Below are my reasons for that.
