Saves are all in low 60's at lvl 60, nearly 70 maxed.
Partial unitank depending on the gear worn. ( str at 80 x2 w/ +16 is 40, 44 w/ para str check feat).
High Mortal Strike DC - the same as +4 subrace.
Very High AC - can break 150 using small shield and 140 ish dual wield at x2 80.
Very Nice disarm ab with single weapon around 114 @80 with x2 and para disarm.
Good disarm ab with dual wield maxed out, around 111 or 110.
High conceal with hide skill and assassin improved invisibility.
Max Listen for concealed mobs.
High crit chance, very nice with oc/dc scimitar gear.
Good damage output on non crittable mobs while dual wielding.
The mortal strike dc is not as good as a pure dex brownie, and the disarm is not as a good as a pure dex fighter, but it means you don't have to make more then one tank, yeah yeah, mariliths will still kd you on the odd occasion but who cares, if you have a competent bard with UUU near you, its fine. Hell you can tell him to not bother coming near you for almost any other mob.
20% exp penalty, no problem if you enjoy the character though, like I do.
Low end HP for a tank, maxing out at 1000 ish.
Gear dependant for str tanking. At least until x2 with para levels.
Some think Wemic's are ugly, I love them personally.
Loss of 1 or 2 dc, woopy doo.. you will still MS mobs constantly.
No real damage soak. (Epic Warding from gear helps).
Lowish Physical immunities (fixed with good gear though).

And there you have it. A unitank assassin with almost max dc still, very nice disarm ab single wield and still good in dual wield. Also has a nice self conceal, acid buff and exp retreat. You will feel a bit weak until you get your 2x glows though. But after the hard work it's all worth it seeing your fluffy kitty grow up to destroy all of mankind with its new opposable thumbs and sharp scimitars. Happens to all kitty owners heh.
Notes: Try to use abilities from gear as buffs, i.e. Shadow Shield from Shadow Wrap cloak, Epic Warding from UR belt, lvl 50 invis purge to from BUR Cleric/Druid Ammy Pendant of the seer for a decent lasting aoe conceal drop. You can just take the gear off after using it.
I did try doing this as 1mnk/9rgr/30sin but the dual wield ab was lower for some reason, and it requires a disarm pandect for that anyway. So sticking with the exp penalty is fine for me. This may be doable the same or even better with koly, but I don't have many koly books and I prefer the appearance of wemic.
