Assassins have access to three feat trees. The Rogue feat tree, and the two assassin specific trees, the poison based Lotus tree and the unholy Corruption tree. Points to put in these trees are granted at a rate of one per level-up, with a speculative maximum of 79 points at release. This means you will not be able to fill out every feat in every tree (actually, you won't even get close), so choose carefully!
