Been pretty lost since 2.0 dropped though tbh. I'm still running power crystals in my main and offhand for example, and I'm not really sure if thats BiS anymore. I suspect it isn't.

Cycao, that 0/23/23 build looks really interesting. One of the things I really like about Madness is the 45% crit chance on Discharge, so it feels like by running Madness you're less crit dependent than in Deception, which as I said with the stacking power thing is good for me.
Specifically for Deception:
Deception needs crit.

20% buffed is too low. I've played around with it and I do not like it at all. It might be good for just gimping one guy off somewhere, but the consistency is severely lacking. With 25% (As Deception), I'm able to get more overall damage in and my swaps to targets are guaranteed criticals.

A year ago if you told me to go 20% buffed, I might've agreed. Now? Not really.
