These are the stats that I have when I run Serenity/Hatred spec. There are many ways to achieve these stats, but here is the cheapest and easiest way to achieve these stats.
*Note* I have all Strength/Willpower/Endurance Datacrons for maximum bonuses
Krea, can i ask you, these stats are with bolster (fleet training area/warzone bolster) or not? And with all four buffs/purple stim?

These stats are WITHOUT bolster, I should clarify that in the OP. Yes, I do have a stim and all 4 legacy buffs on.

Very well written. Just throw it in the assassin/shadow class threads. To much "buff this nerf that" threads going on in the pvp section

Yea, sorry about that, I updated the OP with the original post. I simply quoted it because I am actively editing, revising, and adding new information on the original post over in the Shadow/Assassin forums and it's easier to just copy/paste the revised changes here as opposed to editing twice

Overview:

Remember when warriors got Bladestorm in WoW? No, cos you don't play WoW arenas? Fine. I'll move on then...

Why should you play Shadow/Sin?

Cos Hatred is broken and you like to win.

Abilties/Utilities

[DoT #1] - Use this always
[DoT #2] - Use this always
[DoT #3] - Randomly hit a thing and proc this always
[AoE #1] - Use this on cooldown

Tips and Tricks

Make sure you use deflection and shroud at the same time for maximum effect. Also use deflection without shroud every once in a while to demonstrate how necessary the un-stunnable deflection buff was.

If someone outplays you, just re-stealth

Also play lots of solo queue cos it's the premier form of pvp in swtor
You forgot in the Abilities/Utilities the all important "Roll-Face on the keyboard" and you win move

The overall guide is like a caramel cupcake, and all the satire follow-up guide and tears are like salt sprinkled on top to give that cupcake a little something more. Thanks for enriching the cupcake, cupcake.

What's with all the hate? It's not our fault the class was made OP--hell, myself and others don't even main Hatred. This guide encompasses all specs, not just FotM.

Thanks for the write up, I finally gave up on Marauder because it is so boned in the utilities.

Can you talk about Tank in dps gear? I really like deprevating bolts, because it looks so cool and is about to useable on the move.

Thanks!
