Not at all when you have 2 points and shock gives you a stack each time along with energize clearing the timer during thrash

Personally I tried 27/2/12 and I find 23/1/17 to be a much better replacement for 23/0/18. Yes you lose raze which seemed to hardly ever proc for me anyway, but you get Maul procs quite often even with only 1 point in it, so I simply replace Crushing Darkness with Maul. Maul provides massive burst anyway so it helps a lot. I tried 31/0/10, 27/2/12, 27/0/14, and 23/1/17 after the patch and I found 23/1/17 to be the 'best', for me anyway.

See I don't understand all the hate for Harnessed Darkness/ Wither. I understand wanting to try and find hybrid builds to feel "Unique" but those skills are just amazing.

I played around with both the suggested spec and 23-18 and didn't like it either. Basically as a long time tank EVERYTHING about Wither appeals to me. 5% damage reduction, slow which when stacked with a knockback (On trash mobs) limits the damage I take quite a bit, and the fact that it's an AOE High threat ability. Finally it helps me stack harnessed darkness quickly for my self heal.

I guess what I'm looking for is just some SOLID reasoning as to why NOT to spec it?

The best argument I usually get is, 23-18 does more damage, which would be nice if I had any threat issues.

i don't have anything against Wither but by the time you can put the 1 point in there, there is a lot of points I would like to have put elsewhere.

Well see I guess that's the difference, I leveled deception until 40 then switched back to darkness to pick up wither. Then went madness for double shock.
