2 pts in Charge Mastery or Thrashing Blades ?

This is my projected final template and I hesitate between both.

Is 9% ignore armor worth 6% damage on thrash and voltaic slash ?

Theory crafting this, it probably depends on the armor class your facing, as 9% reduction of the 10% reduction that light armor users will get will only result in about 1% damage gain on all of your melee hits. Whether this is more or less than 6% would depend on how big of a % of your melee damage voltic or thrash make up. They would have to make up for more than 80% of your total melee to be better which I think is unlikely given the % of damage maul and autoattack usually do...

Why aren't you getting both?

You should get both.

They are fairly strong talents.

What else would you get? Madness does not suit deception well.


hrm. um...nvm. I was thinking of something else. I would get thrashing blades. THrash and voltaic are you primary abilities, 9% armor pierce probably does not equate to 6% damage.
