Actually Decimate runs combat/carnage a lot more than smash he only goes smash for certain warzones. But would rather play combat. He has pulled close to a mil in carnage/watchman. But Cap runs it too for combat.

In 2.0 I beleive that Anhilation will most likely be the strongest mara spec for the sole purpose of pressuring healers other then that, carnage requires more skill now, nerfing the Force Scream insta crit, making it go off of Execute instead of bloodfrenzy ( basically gone from 100% on ataur hit to a 30%).

Over all, smash will prob be the stongest/ easiest spec.

Unless the pts skill calcs on swtor-spy are horribly wrong, Immaculate Force (auto-crit Blade Storm) is still in there and there hasn't been any change to how often ataru form will be procced. If anything, Combat will require less skill than it already does because at least now the idiots who leap in, Precision Strike, and proceed to Master Strike, thinking they won't be stunned, can reproc Precision Strike.

Focus management is harder now with the change to zen (granting 30% alacrity for 6 attacks) from how it is on live, reducing the cost of blade rush, cyclone, and slash by 1. Basically have to go into a PS,BR x3, BS cycle with more focus. Derping around on the dummy i was still able to pull high numbers, but the flow of combat is different with the changes.

Never said they removed Immaculate Force, but it now uses Oppertune attack proc instead of combat trance.

You have been served.

That would be assuming that you can't get opportune strikes within the 9 seconds that Blade Storm is on cooldown, which is now about 50/50 (assuming that secondary weapon strikes don't count toward the Ataru Form proc chance. If they do, we might as well just hand out Opportune Strikes like candy). That change might make a slight difference in the crit factor on Blade Storm, but with the increases to alacrity and any use of Zen or Riposte, I'd be surprised to see an sent not manage to get their proc during the cd.
