Which build would you recommend? The armor piercing build or the chain shock build?

In a 10 minute fight, that is 36,000 health, very formidible if you ask me, its like having a whole extra dpser in your raid.
@Shaclad

New Assassin tank here so bear with me please. I read all of you posts in this thread and agree with most of what your saying. I just needed clarification on this one part though.

Nerve Wracking:
http://www.torhead.com/ability/4Tkyh37

The wording on the talent indicates that its a damage increase on targets "controlled" by spike or electrocute. To me that means the mob is stunned from either the 2 second spike effect or the 4 second electrocute stun. Is this correct or does the talent behave differently from the wording?

This thread has generated some fantastic discussion. Awsome job OP. This is definately an excellent begining!

Humm... so am I correct in assuming that Nerve Wracking would only be dps increase on trash and NOT bosses? I just can't see them allowing us to stun bosses at that point you'd just stack assassins and rotate stuns on the boss.

The reason I'm bring this up is because I'm analyzing the talents for my build and trying to work out what will best suit me.

Thanks!

Spike isn't technically a 'stun' so I'm not really sure (Unbreakable Will does not remove the effect).

I suppose there's one way to find out!

Assuming torhead is correct it looks like a knockdown

I'm only level 31 so I have a ways to go before I get there!

If the damage increase on Nerve Wracking doesn't effect bosses I'm looking at one of these two builds assuming the theory crafters come up with something definative on Shroud of Darkness vs Swelling Shadows:

W/O Swelling Shadows:

With Swelling Shadows:

If it does I'd definately make some adjustments to use it.
