I personally found the later stealth abilities on the tree a bit underwhelming. I especially thought it was odd that the advanced assassination ability was so early, since its such a high impact ability and to me was really the peak excitement of the tree. In comparison, the later abilities on the stealth tree seemed minor.
I think switching the Advanced Assassination and Auto-Loot abilities results in better positions for both. Advanced Assassination being later gives a more natural progression for assassin builds, where you don't basically start the game off as a master assassin. The auto-loot is also low impact/QoL and makes sense as an early ability that other non-stealth builds (like warrior) could dip into and benefit from with relatively few skill points. Auto-loot benefits warrior builds just as much as stealth builds anyways.
I think I get why Adv Assassinate was made so accessible though, because a lot of players wanted assassinations to be one-shot no matter what. However, we already have a setting in the menu for that if players want guaranteed one-shot assassinations no matter what, so I don't think there's a real need to put it unnaturally early in the tree as well.
