If I was to go Assassin, I'd go with Omni Katar Dagger build with dex. Mob em weaklings with elemental katar/infils and for stronger places, dual dagger.
 
My taste.

fastest is still chick hat + katar with endow.
(similar to renewal lvling, since kafra shop is up)

and GT when there's a sufficient mob.

cards will take a while for circulation for perfectly carded daggers.

ice pick is a long haul option and will not be in for a while (3rd god item seal quest)

crit with abrasives would be somewhat viable depending on your target (possibly anolians?)

chick hat + katar still > all atm, other than leeching (rip LoD).

as far as poison skills go, its preference.  Venom Splasher does do damage, and you can reference the wiki for the poisoned target dmg calc (might be there not certain). Venom Dust forces the poison status, minor hp drain and minor vit reduction on target. Enchant Poison will enable some +25% dmg on some specific targets (look up monster database), if you dont have access to endow sage.

generally, though, if you're planning to 99, you will be ctrl clicking all the way, unless you like suicidal GT mobbing.

Advice on skill builds?

I played a DD sin pre-renewal, but without any ice picks/circulation of cards that seems impossible. But in the future they should be easier to get, so... not sure if I should get right dagger mastery 5 and left dagger mastery 2 anyway.

Edit:
Right Mastery 5
Left Mastery 2
Grimtooth 5
Sonic Blow 10
Katar Mastery 10
Cloaking 10
Enchant Poison 5
Venom Dust 2

good/bad?

I'd ditch Venom Dust and just max out my masteries and leave EP at 4.
 
Venom Dust is pretty much a useless skill (imo). It forces a status ailment that is easily counterable with a green herb (most common herb in RO). Also, the hp drainin' is next to nothing in a fight during WoE/PvP. Other effects barely make a difference.
Also, the skill is completely useless for pvm.

Are niffheim parties for sins+fs still a decent place to level? It's been a very long time since I played iRO and I'm wondering if it's worth making a hallowed jur like back in the day.
Kinda miss Loli Ruris and Bloody Murderers.. :)
