Thanks in advance for any help anyone can render !
Eh, I think you should follow the link in Exi's signature. It leads to a place where peoples will help you out

So yeah, follow this link for the Assassin/Shadow discord server, it's generally simple to receive advice from different players.


To answer your question, the builds quoted above are for both Deception/Infiltration and Hatred/Serenity. Those builds works well in either PvE or PvP.

These sets are for both DPS specs. The stats you want in either spec are exactly the same.

As of details on rotational stuff etc, this one is pretty much still up to date.
Except for the stats/gearing part.. all the theory is the same as it is now.

You're not the first and you won't be the last. But if you want to best of my help.. go and try doing what this guide tells you. You might have questions along the line and I'll be happy to answer them. But in order for me to put everything in enough detail I would just have to write everything that guide already has.

You'll learn from it and you will know what to ask. Asking in the general sense makes it hard for me to help you ;/

It's just to make it easier to read.

Although if you are color blind that might work counterproductively
In that case, I'd recommend you copy the text to notepad. Easy, quick solution

I am sure Evo will come back here and respond but yea you are hitting the 1st tier for alacrity which I guess you are intending to do, you can see in the initial post that the higher alacrity tier (1860+) is recommended due to higher potential but assuming you don't mind hitting the lower tier, which you are now, you are fine.

If you have Power and Mastery to sacrifice, do that. If not, sacrifice crit.

Also, after a year of not being around, Im back!

Time to update that sig...

If you go for ~1860 alacrity you put everything else in crit (and 110% accuracy).
