Is his increasing impotence against undead work as intended or merely a byproduct though?
It just feels that the design philosophy isn't consistent - all other tier 3 classes are better with their signature glyph, but only Assassins suffer a weakness (and it will
be linked to the glyph). Hell before Corrosion I sometimes convert APHEELSIK at the beginning just for the heck of it. If the baseline is that Assassin can't live without poison then that's not very good design IMHO.
