1860+ is what you'll have with high alacrity builds. 1876, for example.
Ael Veela, Sith Marauder Klorea, Sith Sorcerer Cinthie, Sith Assassin Lora Leigh, Sniper Darth Malgus

Please keep in mind that Earpieces and Implants also count as Enhancements,
since you can choose which stats are on it.


It also doesn't matter if you are using new or old augments.
The 2 stat difference isn't big enough to force a change in gearing.
You just get a bunch more Power and Endurance.

248 Hatred and Deception

In 248 you got 2 options.
The recommended option is that you go with the higher amount of Alacrity.
Reasons to go for the lower amount of Alacrity are explained below.



As for the Lower Alacrity version, there are 2 ways of doing this one.
One with 1617 crit and one with 1848 crit.
The lower crit one will provide you with more stable numbers, but is incompatible with PvP for its high accuracy.
The higher crit one will provide you with higher peak damage in case of generous RNG.






242 Hatred and Deception

In 242 you really only have 1 option. You can't reasonably reach the higher Alacrity Threshold.
And besides that if you're still gearing up I wouldn't worry too much about the Alacrity part.





Summing it down

  • Stats are listed by order of importance.
    However as explained in lower gear levels Alacrity isn't as big of a deal. Accuracy is, though.
  • Accuracy and Alacrity are here to stay.
    You should get at least some Accuracy and what I give you here is what I recommend.
    For PvP you could opt to drop one Accuracy augment for a Crit one. That's about as far as I'd go down with it.
  • Don't deviate from the Alacrity numbers unless you have a good reason to (Bad ping, not filling GCDs etc)
    The reason for this is that the amount of Alacrity I guide you to puts you past the threshold for a lower GCD.
    Getting any more or less will just hurt you. It either doesn't affect the GCD or it affects it in a negative way.
  • Get your setbonus ASAP. 6x 230 Armorings with set is better than 6x 248 Armorings without set.
  • You get more than enough Power from sources outside of the posted ones. You can't really avoid it in the lower alacrity 248 builds (which is why they are not so great) But you don't need more and you don't want more. Power is massively overrated. Leave it for what it is.



If you have any further questions I would like to redirect you to the Discord Server in my signature.
There are currently 150 Assassins and Shadows over there which will gladly help you on your way.

1x Accuracy Enhancement
3x Accuracy Augment
gives me 110.29%

6x Alacrity Enhancement
5x Alacrity Augment
only gives me like 40.57% and 68.57% to crit mulitpler with alacrity @ 1974
whereas if i go 5X enhance 5X aug


4x Crit Enhancement
6x Crit Augment
i end up with 42.19% and 70.19% and alacrity @1743
are you really gaining a lot foregoing the crit for the alacrity?

You can also do 2 accuracy enhancements only if you stim and have companion bonus, gives you like 109.65% accuracy, unlikely to make a difference on every figh, but frees up more for crit

So, guys, about PVP, I've got 2 options:
1) 0 Acc, Alacrity low cap, Crit + Mastery relics and all aug's, ench's and other stuff crit(full crit in other words)
2) 0 Acc, Alacrity low cap, 40% crit cap, mastery + power relics and all other stuff with as much mastery as possible
Which one is better?

I would go for 0acc, low alacrity and crit cap - rest in mastery.

I was under the impression you need 0 Accuracy for pvp.

Also, has anything changed in regards to the new Superior [XXX] Augments 48 (item rating 240)?

Thanks for all your hard work.
