So, looking at some basic breakdowns of our damage on parsely it looks like our damage is split between multiple sources but the big pair come in at Tech Wizardry & Periodic Intensity.
Tech-wise it looks like around 60% of our damage comes from tech-based attacks (lethal strike, shiv, CG... etc) while a near equal % of our damage comes from periodic damage (CG, CD, TB) prodvided Toxic Blast counts as periodic damage.

If thats the case, then Periodic Damage would be better than Tech Wizardry seeing as the highest % increase for Periodic Intensity is 2.2% while its only 1% for Tech Wizardry.

Does that track for anyone else? Stack Periodic Intensity for Lethality sounds right? Or does TB not benefit from Periodic Intensity which... eh, probably means 2.2% across the board is still better than tech wizardry, but it'll feel worse.

Tech Wizardry for Concealment, Periodic Intensity for Lethality.

Is periodic intensity really that strong on concealment?
I'd hypothesized it as being around a 4% damage increase with 10 2.2% periodics. While tech wizardry would have been a flat 10%

Yeah, you would need to have over 50% DoT damage contribution in Concealment to make Periodic better than Tech.

In real parses your DoTs are barely at 20% of total damage, even with Acid Blade. So yeah, 4-5% increase is what you will see, which is almost 2 times worse than pure Tech.

P.S. There are 9 full amps - 10th one from Amp Champ piece is smaller. So, it's 9x 2.2% + 1x 0,88%

Ah, you're right. Periodic Intensity isn't that much for concealment. Sorry - misremembered. Tech Wiz is the one that's decent for both specs. The numbers I've seen from Smarty's discord and spreadsheet puts damage increase at:

Tech Wiz--- +9.31% (concealment) and +4.16% (ruffian)
Periodic Intensity--- +2.36% (concealment) and +8.88% (ruffian)

It doesn't take into account Tacticals and the 100% uptime on Acid Blade (from Acid Lash). But still, Periodic Intensity won't come close to the +9.31% from Tech Wiz.
