Above Maul/Shadow Strike, below Discharge/Breach and Assassinate/Spinning Strike.

It has a cooldown so you will want to use it as often as possible. But it's use is completely wasted if you override already active and capped procs. Execute is always top prio because you never know when you can use it again, Breach is top prio because overriding procs is (more) wasted damage (than the +1GCD of cooldown on Reaping Strike).

For PvE it'll be different because you can execute on cooldown. To be honest though the only thing that then changes is that keeping up stacks of Clair/Volt will have the next priority right after executing. Then proceed as above.

Edit: And in PvE Breach is absolute prio, rather than execute. Because procs and force management. (I mean, its hard but if you randomly hit stuff you CAN still run out of force)

Spinning kick hits pretty gosh darn hard theise days tbf, using potency on it is still ill-advised but definitely not "completely terrible" anymore.
