For pve doesn't seem worth it, though I wouldn't mind another defensive cooldown. It's arguable that the permanent 5% damage reduction due to force slow and the faster harnessed shadows will be better for mitigation over the course of blackout's cooldown.

Add to that the fact that you're missing one of your main threat generators, the cost reduction on project and upheval (which helps with threat gen as well) and I guess I'll stick to a full kinetic combat build...

But it could work (somewhat) for pvp, since the damage reduction works while exiting stealth AND when using blackout, so you could exploit also force cloak (and plain entering combat from stealth) to make a very sturdy build... in that case it may actually be worth it, in addition with the added force regen that can help to proc accelerated project from double strike.
