It's been over a year since the Slayer Class was released in the Advanced Class Guide. In that time, there have only been two books in which more talents for the Slayer have been released: Advanced Class Origins, and Dirty Tactics Toolbox. And the options in Dirty Tactics Toolbox are restricted to the Catfolk race. On top of that, there have been no new Advanced Slayer Talents released.
This wouldn't be so bad, since Slayer's can access a limited amount of Rogue talents through one of their own Talents. This means that, theoretically, every time the Rogue gets more talents, the Slayer gets more talents. However, since the Slayer can only take a select group of rogue talents, any new rogue talents have to specifically say that they can be selected by Slayers. This language has only appeared, as far as I can see, in Blood of Shadows.
Slayers are a cool class. I'd like it if they got some more cool toys to play with. An archetype every now and then is neat, but more Slayer Talents can benefit all Slayers.

I agree very much with this.
I had already expressed my desire for more Slayer talents and the Blood of Shadows answered my prayers with one small line ... Slayers can also take these talents as if they were slayer talents.
Apart from this one example, whenever new rogue talents are published, Slayers are usually forgotten even when the talent suits thematically.
More Slayer talents please!
Slayers haven't gotten very much attention in general. They also haven't received many interesting archetypes. Heck, two of their archetypes are basically the same idea, just for different creature types. The design team needs to start looking at the slayer as being more of a Han Solo class and less of an assassin class.
It reminds me of how inquisitors could have been pigeonholed into being nothing more than different flavors a of religious zealot, but they have instead blossomed into a much more varied archetype.
