The rule book explains how to pass up on a vassal. Why would a player do this? I don’t see the advantage to skip in gin having a vassal.

If you control a vassal you cannot seize the vassal's areas with the house you're playing. That's mostly it.

You cannot attack, support an attack, or raid against one of or vassals so you may want to pass a vassal if you were intending to attack their territory.

In addition to not being able to attack them as mentioned above, you can also force the last player on the IT track (Targaryen, if they're in the game) to control and not attack or take territory (or loyalty tokens or castles) from said vassal(s), if everyone is in on it.

You might also be able to use it as a negotiation tactic with other houses ... they might be willing to pay for you to pass on a vassal for one reason or another.
