2 force cloak charges will make dps sins very viable.

2 force shroud charges as a tactical is another good tactical. Its not OP because you can only have one equipped at a time.

Might be slightly overpowered, but immune to all immobolization effects while force speed is active.
This would be a good tactical item.

Including ccs and hardstuns.

The set bonuses for assassin specifically for deception are very underwhelming. You get some stat buffs for 2 and 4 piece set bonus and then the 6 piece bonus are worthless. You will largely never be using phantom stride from stealth so the crit is going to be unused. Especially since you use phantom stride to proc your discharge it really seems like you will never get any value out of it. The other options are either inherently defensive or just give some more melee damage.

In the original post about set bonuses you listed this

Death Knell Killing an enemy during Overcharge Saber refreshes the duration of Overcharge Saber. Can occur up to 5 times during one Overcharge Saber.

However on PTS the death knell set does something completely different and just gives a refreshing melee buff which is not as impactful as the over charge one so I don't know why it was changed.

Overall compared to the set bonuses on the live server these seem to be much less inspired having minor stat buffs on the 2 and 4 piece bonuses doesn't even make mixing and matching worthwhile since only the 6 piece bonus has any impact on gameplay. There seem to be more diverse set bonus options for the general items and for other classes.

set bonus that increases knock back range, in a 4 piece set would be nice. If it was 6 piece then it should knock and enemy back to 30 meters.

When using the Tactical Item that gives Phantom Stride two charges (Herra's Persistance), there is no cool down text that shows on it once you use the second charge. Is it possible to have a cool down text added to this when it is on 0 charges?
