Okay, was planning to that yes. Does it make any difference with gear; those two specs? (assuming 24/0/17 as the other one now). My question remains though: What augments do I get?

Ah yes. Thanks. Why did you choose for a force master focus and not the stalker focus btw?

had force-master (before I found out that black hole was even better) before EWH came out because it had better stats. No reason to grind out a completely different offhand since the armoring for it doesn't matter. It is just a shell-all that matters are the interchangeable components within-so it doesn't really matter.

with the patch notes for 2.0 out, i would have to say that wakajinn spec will be vastly superior to full deception due to VS redesign. I'll be sure to test out the dmg output to the new VS once it goes live. But id wager that wakajinn will come out on top for sure this time

what are your guys thoughts
Krow - Deception Assassin / Karasu - Infiltration Shadow
Ghostrider- Pyro Powertech / Sparda - Assault Specialist Vanguard
Bloodfang- Concealment Operative

From what I can tell you need VS to build up your charges quickly for discharge so we may be a little more dependent on it now.

eah, Wakajinn 2.0 is less bursty now, on a good note though, limited playing around with a 36/6/4 build seemed promising...31/1/9 base of course.

I've gotten like a million whispers in game about this kind of stuff...I don't know yet. My initial impression is that Deception-based specs received gigantic nerfs...Need to keep playing and thoerycrafting until I can say for sure but right now I'm pretty unhappy.


if u wanna whisper me on pts my name is: Wakalord

Looking at what the other classes got.. Ya, deception is pretty **** now.

They should have put in the data-mined stuff for assassins, what they put in now is bad.

I haven't played on the PTS yet, but the assassin changes don't look too good compared to what I heard, especially compared to what the other classes got in terms of defensive CDs (also the TTK goes way up imo; higher expertise, changes in alacrity etc.). The phase walk thing is fun and nice, but I don't think it offers the utility needed to make DPS assassins viable. Also I'm hearing that they decreased crit a lot, making alacrity a must, means you really need to get CS to put out discharges fast enough.

Also, no more instant-force lift. With reduced crit if it's really true, the darkness-hybrid might be dead too. With the defensive stats finally working, guess what assassin's job will be from now on...

(longer and mroe detailed response. Really hope I'm wrong. Crit change is not right got wrong informations)
