Are you sure the backstab is interruptible on Nightmare difficulty? Because I've tried interrupting with my own backstab, miasmic flask, mind blast, etc, and nothing works.

It should be, I've done it both on the PC and the 360 versions. I've never tried interrupting my own, but I know that you can interrupt opponents.

Matter of fact, the most useful way I've found is Miasmic flask and Smoking Arrow (the update to Bursting Arrow) work well in tandem, as it both stuns the targets and then creates a smoke veil. I'll have to try again a few times to see if it was just luck on my part that I caught them just at the right time since it was only once that I used that combo.

I haven't tried using Archer's Lance, but in theory as long as you're pointed to the back of your friend on the backstab probability it should actually hit the assassin and either stop his attack or at least bring him out of the stealth. Of course, I've never tried it on Nightmare, so I don't know if it'll actually use the friendly fire system...I wouldn't think it would though.
