Haven't been on my assassin in a long time, I think the last time i PVP'd on him there was still Champion armor....

What spec would yall suggest for playing in Recruit Mk 2 gear?

My shock crits for 8k and my discharge for 5.5k. And i havn't even spoken of Maul yet. You are doing it wrong.

Deception is great for targetted pressure or otherwise quick killing. It doesn't do well if the target does not die fast.

I remember hitting peeps for 5-6k with discharge, but "8k for shock"? If this is true it's time to get old Jormungandr off his shelf.

I think they are including the "second shock" in that calculation.

and then start cursing hell when you find out that the next tier of pvp gear requires you to have elite WH and you have to grind it out anyway :'D I agree btw that it's not really worth the effort now to get full elite WH.

Naturally. It's the same ability.

I severely question anyone who uses full Deception in PvP. Voltaic Slash is the most obvious ramp up ability in the history of MMOs.

Yeah, it takes a staggering 2 seconds before you can unleash 15k damage in the 3 seconds after that.

Obvious troll is obvious.

Unfortunately, the huge giveaway that is VS makes it incredibly easy to shut down a full deception sin. I only dare play full deception in regular warzones where most people are too bad to realize what the yoyo means. If I want to play seriously, I always go 0/27/14. If your server has nobody shutting down deception sins I think I should roll there haha.

For real. Plus, who'd willingly give up death field?
