What has changed

First Impressions

Assassination is mostly getting new abilities in the form of Capstones. Indiscriminate Carnage is a huge addition to our damage in Mythic+ and AoE, while we get the return of Kingsbane for some single target burst pressure.

Exsanguinate is back, which some might see as a bad playstyle. In general, Assassination received a lot of new buttons in Dragonflight, which complicates the rotation significantly for those looking to min-max.
