Eh, I like to feel the assassin's out and then decide how to play according to my interpretation of their personalities.

Tomahawk sucked, i mean it takes so many hits to kill an enemy and sometimes the attack string goes on for way too long, the sword is quick and deadly. --- L button on my keyboard doesn't work very well.
