clairvoyant strike - the current red headed stepchild?

i logged in today for the first time since april or may. i noticed my talents have been reset ... and the talents themselves have been re-worked.

i saw shinarika's sticky and thought ... nice .. i'll grab a cookie cutter infiltration build from there while i see what else needs to be re-adjusted, etc.

i notice that the clairvoyant strike is not taken. is this something i missed over the summer? has it gotten bad press? not as good as previously thought?

thanks in advance,

odds are you saw a hyrbrid build. but if you going infiltration take clairvoyant strike. with the changes to infiltration in 1.4, the buff it provides works better overall.
1.4 patch notes.

If you have seen a build on the first post of Shinarika, it is likely that the build is outdated.

There may be some reasons to not have taken it in the past, but I don't see any at this time.
Or maybe the link is now broken and doesn't show what was thought before.

These are the builds without Clairvoyant Strike he probably mentionned.

We can see they are broken because there are talents which are selected at 5/2 (Deep impact), 3/2 (Fade & Shadow Respite) and 2/1 (Leg Slash), which is obviously impossible.

I thought this thread would be about how goofy the animation is.

Was dissapointed.

yeah the yoyo-thing feels odd. maybe a melee attack with more flair siuts it better, or a variation of double strike

but clairvoyant strike is still good, if not better than before
