Excellent video. Worth 3 minutes of every new assassin/shadows time.

Yes. I crit for 5k as deception using shock (against low armor/expertise targets) or a full stack of discharge. Not every time, but when the stars aline. I have mostly champion gear with battlemaster weapon/focus and ear/implants. The rest is champ gear with crit surge / power surge mods.

Heh. Shock is energy damage that is mitigated by armor.

Discharge on the other hand...

Good infiltration/Deception how-to movie.

5k shocks/projects are easy when gear is modified and specced for willpower and power.
Force breach/Discharge is hilarious easy to get cause its internal damage.

Still, though, for its high burst and nice show-off in this movie, infil/decep is STILL the weakest in competitive PvP and for ranked WZ. Its more suited for 1vs1 and the lone wolf style. I guess most wont even play deception/infiltration when 1.2 hits. Maybe some die-hard fans will, but few they will be.

Nonetheless i hope the tree gets some loving and changes soon, because its a fun spec and i long to play it permanently. KC/Darkness gets dull fast when almost everyone plays it.

It's unfortunately true and I hope to see more group viability in the future. All it's good for is very small scale action. Duels, 2v2, 3v3 at best.
