Kit's Nightshade Template! 

Blades/Legendary Weapons

Once upon a time, Assassin templates were my bread and butter.  It's a very different game than it was in those days though.

This one is admittedly a bit theoretical, but it leans on foundations that haven't changed.  Namely, Dex.  Dex is simply not that important if you are not Pierce spec.  Yes.  It does affect evade "slightly".  No, no one has ever found in countless hours of testing that the effective is "meaningful".  This originally started out as a Pierce Template, and honestly... I just got frustrated and decided to scrap it and go Blades.  I don't know that it's realistic to have a Pierce Template perform on the same level as Blades, and when using Legendary Weapons, none of that matters anyways, as your damage type is magical anyways.  That said, Celt is still at 290 Dex with this template and nothing in Creation.

Solo, Stealth Zerg, etc, doesn't really matter.  The same needs exist.  Namely, strong damage backed by sustained regen.

This is why the Sablestrike set is so incredibly expensive (in addition to NS having a hard time getting into 9/10 to begin with).  Being covered in 280 delve Heal Procs, with a secondary 5% regen on chest, secondary 25% heal on gloves, head/arms/legs all having a secondary 50% Ablative, MoV /use for more Regen, 2 survival /use on Skull, Fomor having 2 survival uses, add in some potions... you get the idea.

75 Qui means Elf, Celt, Luri... doesn't matter, you're at 250+  For Str based templates, Celt is obviously the better choice having 20 more Str base than Elf/Luri.

Unfortunately, even with +15 creation, it only gets you to 368, miles away from the 400 mark.  That's just a Nightshade problem, though.  It does come with 2780 HP, though.
