Just getting started with my assassin (level 13) and curious as to the best spec for leveling? Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Same one you're going to use at level 50

Go for darkness definitely. The survivability is key and you actually do good dps.

Having just finished the same grind you are facing now, I found it much easier to stick to deception until the mid 30's and then switch to darkness (or madness if it suits your fancy).

That is a question you should be asking from yourself.

What are you planning to do in the end game? Tank or DPS?
Level up in the same spec that you would use then, so you learn to play that spec.

Just looking for a little help, not an argument. No need to be rude.

Telling you, you have to go darkness and use dark charge. I switched to deception while leveling and while it did do damage well, I was severely lacking in survivability. You prettyt much have to use surging charge as deception and its not worth it. Don't go deception until you're 50 and decide you want to DPS in raids or something.

Deception til 25. Then respect darkness and use dps gear with as much power and surge as you can grab. You'll blow mobs away. I finished my class story at 46 with ease. I went with a death field build I think it was somethingnlike 24/0/17 but recently wither got a big buff so I'd grab that especially since inquisitors don't get a healer til late. The stacks in harnessed darkness with give your force lightning 3% heals each tick with huge dmg. Oh and use a dps companion once you get them khem sucks after 25 ish.

Lemme know if ya got any questions.
