The concept of an AD assassin..

So I feel like the concept of an ad assassin is just entirely too strong. A lot of ap assassins can lay down just as heavy burst as an ad assassin, however then most ap assassins have to get out. An ad assassin can lay down just as much damage but with a little lifesteal can continue on and devastate entire teams. I personally feel that seeing as they have so much attack damage already that their ad ratios should be looked at more closely and adjusted. Has any else noticed anything similar to what im saying? *cough* rengar, kha'zix *cough*

ad assassins are weaker actually because they have poor itemization.

A small period of less burst with a longer period of sustained damage. AD assassins aren't rendered useless once they blow their load, they can still contribute strong attacks. The problem is, most AD assassins even squishier than their AP brethren because they have to rely on melee to deal damage.

You listed a balanced champion, and an underpowered champion. Doesn't exactly give a strong argument.

Rengar was really strong.

I've seen few Kha'zix players, considering how often I see most champs at release, and even less good ones, so I don't have a good idea of how strong he was.

Also, Talon isn't all that powerful atm.

Ap assassins are more viable.

AD assassins rely on skills to do a lot of their damage. Lifesteal is only as good as spell vamp for them. But the only halfway decent item for them with spellvamp is Gunblade, which is expensive so you're paying for a bunch of AP you're not using.

both rengar and kha zix have heals so that they can effectively stay in melee range and not have to worrry as much about being squishy
