Other than the argument of blaming the user, objectively speaking NB is very fragile and can’t take out tankier opponents to save its life. Been playing a NB for over 6 months and use an MMO mouse. It’s either kill or be killed with the NB. I’ve got 18k health, 11k pen, 9k resistances. Most ganks fail regardless of using weapon power pots, etc. even worse is getting caught, not even vigor or healthy offering is enough to survive. People can easily spam acid spray or something pulling you out of cloak. Forget ganking anyone in a group as you’ll get caught in some aoe for instadeath and most travel in groups anyways. I’ve ran tests with full Stygian, gold weapon, RAT, Rally, weapon power pot, stage 3 vamp, and still weak burst against an unbuffed opponent. Yeah the NB “has the highest burst of any class” but not by a whole lot.

I’ve had way more success playing as DK as people tend to run/hide from me instead.
