How noticeable are the fewer points Assassins get?

I've been playing a dwarven assassin in DDO lately, and he's proven to be my favorite character I've ever made on there. Never expected that when I made him out of the blue.

Anyhoo, since I've never done one, I'm curious at how noticeable the lack of points an Assassin gets compared to a base Rogue Thief? I mean, sure, I'll do my darndest to keep Imoen in my party anyway, she can easily back me up and cover things I'm lacking, but still, I like to be more reliant on my own characters, even if I run a full party.

    Assassins are pretty gimped abilitywise unless you meta like crazy, dwarves having the hardest time. A halfling Assassin shouldn't have any hassles in bg2 with gear, but might need to use potions in bg1.

    You likely will be a ****ty pickpocket too fwiw.

    Pretty darn noticeable. Most people take a second thief along with their assassin so they'll have somebody to do everything but the backstabs.

    Wait, people actually pick pocket? (I kid, I know there are a couple nice goodies.)

    Well, I guess it gives me as good a reason as any to actually use those thieving potions. Normally I horde those like crazy and never actually use them (like pretty much every other potion.) I take it I should focus on sneaky stealthy ways before anything else.
