Here is my list for my sin tank and lethality op... Overwhelming offense was a 9% damage increase on the pts, but it was called greased lightning.

i think im going to go with tactician set with overwhelming offense for op. if energy is an issue, maybe synox shots
for tanking... i need to know if dark ward gives more absorb stacks... but the amount of absorb may be time limited since the boss might not land enough hits to warrant 5 more stacks.

I pretty much only solo and do veteran flashpoints, so I'm leaning towards taskmaster to make my companions stronger.

The fact that this thread even exists shows that the fundamental core premise of the "Spoils of War" aspect of Onslaught is fundamentally wrong. All that work on building all those different sets, and ultimately anyone who doesn't use ===> that one <=== will be an automatic vote-kick candidate in all tiers of group content.

In the toppest tiers, it will be because there's an actual enumeratable advantage, even if the advantage is only small, while in the lower tiers, frequented highly by cargo cultists(1) of the type noted at high frequency throughout the annals of "Weird People You Meet In Group Finder", those cargo cultists will vote kick for a new something-that-matters-not-at-all.

Wanting to theory craft to figure out what the "best" set bonus is for most op-boss fights for a given spec is not a bad thing.

The horizontal gear grind is long. Right now I have 4 one piece of different sets. If I was allowed to turn in a token for gear I would already have my 4-piece of my chosen set...

FYI Overwhelming Offense is 5%. DoTs can proc it, so as long as you keep them up you should be able to keep the 5% dmg buff up.

seems like the best amps are going to be force/tech or weapon/periodic depending on you damage profile
