Currently our guild has started working on progression through 10 man DS HM (3/8), I am spec'd combat and my true passion is Assass. I understand the importance of being combat as the raid can benefit from my cleave ability, as well as the other few bosses that cant be backstabbed. Getting advice from fellow players (friends) is useless and unhelpful in making a decision, so I came here . I would prefer to DPS as Assass main and combat on the few bosses that need it. Would my spec/reforge as Assass be "OK" to DPS in combat with during these particular fights? Should I start collecting gear solely for these situations as combat? Or simply stay combat and hit my head against the wall? Raid DPS is very high and I feel that from the DPS loss I would have, could be easily covered by guildies.
