After coming to an end in LotRO I am currently thinking about getting into Age of Conan. I always wanted to try it at least and now it seems the time to be.

I have already deciced to level an assassin. Can anyone point out, if it is a viable class for pve/pvp? I understand that EVERY class has the ability to hide and stealth? So what makes the assassin special?

I am very excited about the "new" hardcore pvp servers, but I am wondering if they have a solid playerbase? No point in hardcore pvp rules, if only a handful of players are online every evening. Any thoughts on this?

Thx in advance!

This guy is very PVP and Assassin. If anyone has an opinion he does. He's pretty good at replying on Twitter,

Goodluck! I mostly play a PoM and PvE so I'm probably not best person to give an opinion. Slith would be the person I would ask his opinion on PvP and the sin class.

Both "hardcore" PvP servers are dead. Stupid rulesets ruined it all (mainly Khitai and AA's).

PvE servers have the most pop, so join one of those. Just don't expect any PvP love in this game, with this game director.

Thank you for your answers!

Sad to hear, that the hardcore pvp server is dead...:( But I can't bring myself to play on a pve server, so I will try the regular pvp server instead.

@Sevenwind: Thank you for the link! Was extremely helpful!
