ZERO is the sweet spot for deception
Guarding a healer is not only the job the the skill ''guard''. It is also your job to stay around the healer to be a plague for the people attacking the healer.

I use just one alacrity enhancement currently for PvP, which gives me something like 0.87% alacrity.

I've reached the place where I want to be with accuracy, and my crit multiplier is just barely over 70%. At this point it was a decision between another 1.5% multiplier or ~1% alacrity. The multiplier only has any effect 1 out of 5 times for me, while the alacrity affects every action.

The surge would have increased my damage by some 0.3% with an extra enhancement considering the crit rating, while alacrity flat out raises my dps by 0.87%. If I didn't care about dropping below 70% crit multiplier, I'd probably add another alacrity enhancement.

1.5% crit is about 1.2% more burst dps. You're wrong.
Truth lies within.

he said 1.5 % multiplier, not 1.5 % crit. curious, does combat feel any snappier ~ 1%?

It's unlikely you'll ever use your GCD fast enough to notice the 1% faster GCD. But that's not the point of having alacrity. While you may not notice what having 1% more Force regen does, unless you're constantly sitting at full Force, it's virtually guaranteed that you will do 1% more damage over the long run when you regen 1% more Force.

Yeah true, lag is the number one enemy of alacrity, but if I'm dueling outside of a wz or trying to ninja a node, lag is usually minimal.

So, discounting lag, 1% alacrity = 1% more damage.

1% crit < 1% alacrity

1% crit < 1% alacrity
Lag doesn't matter as long as you're not sitting at 100% Force for extended time, because the amount of Force you have is generally 100% related to how much damage you can/will do so filling it up 1% faster gets you 1% more damage. Deception is relatively hungry on Force so it's not like you have to worry about having too much Force and wasting regen.
