Sorry for the confusion that is the one i meant, the 14/27 spec,

I am running 27/14 at the moment and really liking it.

What i was asking was where do the dots come from on 14/27 considering it runs shadow tech? isn't force suppression wasted then? I could be wrong in the way i am understanding it here.

*I'm going to use assassin terminology for simplicity in this post. Convert to shadow terminology in your head while reading.*

It's always safe to assume that if you take the 2 points in madness that make lightning discharge instant, as well as the proc chance on raze, that you play the spec in lightning charge. The point on surging charge is a wasted point, but its the only way to get induction for maul crit multiplier. Duplicity, coupled with induction and unearthed knowledge can make for some nasty burst on maul crits.

I took a look at this. You lose a lot of force power since it's attached to the focus shell and not the armoring. In the end, the trade off didn't appeal to me.

Messing around trying to find new ways to entertain myself with my Shadow... I suddenly came up with this spec out of nowhere. I remember seeing it on "paper" and thinking "Oh gosh, that spec would perform awesome if I think it works the way I want it to!". Well, what a surprise... this spec more than fulfilled my expectations, it surpassed it.

This is a very high-damage dealing spec that features a multiple arsenal of attacks to keep you going and keep you going strong. FiB and Breach, both high internal damage (Yes, this spec utilizes Shadow Technique!) along with the SS proc... this spec is just a pure armour-penetrating build. Also known as 'the backstab' spec.

On top of the high and consistent damage, the force management is great! That's the other part that surprised me. You have so many buttons to press yet you're not force starved entirely. Granted, you must monitor your force like you would as any spec. I'm still working around getting used to this spec but I absolutely love it. The burst literally requires little to no setup and you have the ability to just keep going.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well.....

I gave this little beauty a try and man can it deal some damage. I scored my biggest hit yet - 6797k but in a mass group, you can get cut down to pieces extremely quickly due to the lack of survivability -which is a shame. Its a very high damage dealing spec.

Ive yet to manage to get behind my target to Maul and theres a few new procs to look out for but worth a try certainly in WZs like Civil War but Ancient Gates, Huttball it doesnt stand up to much due to stuns unless you;re in a 1on1 battle which in such a small space, isnt always going to be the way , since a pocket healer is always somewhere closeby.

Good fun though
to strive to seek, to find. And not to yield.

"Arika," spec, will it be viable in 2.0? Seeing how waka has quit the game due to the fact that sins have been nerfed for no reason, lol, I also see no point in gearing for dps gear unless there is some sort of hybrid worth playing. Shinarika have you messed around with any hybrids? If so what are your finding and do you forsee any hope for assassin dps?
