maybe I'll try the other one later as well.
What gives Arika the edge over Deception (imo) is that there is no setup on the burst. It is completely unpredictable and you can start the burst and just keep going. I personally favour it over infil because I'm aware of how to use the style. It doesn't play like infil, so don't try to imitate it that way.

It plays like itself

As of right now I'm at about 400 power, 28% crit unbuffed, 76.88% surge, 96% accuracy, 1600 willpower, and 1123 expertise. 18% crit sounds a little disheartening for me, even with recklessness thats only every 75 seconds with stalker set bonus, so I wanted to know why you think the power is worth the loss in crit.
My armoury is geared for KC/Infil, not 13/28. 13/28 needs the crit, roughly 25%+.

I'll try out your 23/1/17 Hybrid and see how that goes. Sith assassin in Stalker Battlemaster (1 war hero augmented) gear.

Edit, holy crap, this build kicks butt.

Edit 2: Video to boot. Not the best example, but it works.

I kinda resently dinged 50 with my assassin and i am woundering about statpriority?. Is it worth stacking crit over 30% if not, why? As a deceptionassassin i kinda feel that u live on your crits! As i check around the net it seams like the statpriority is (for pvp) Expertise > Accuracy to 105% > Crit 30% >Critical multiplier 75% and power as a last resort.
Is this priority correct? Its pretty much this i find everywhere. Feel free to comment, discuss =)
May I know what spec you are aiming for? Different specs require different stat allocation.

Just thought I would pop in and give my thoughts on the 23/1/17 spec. Although my new toon is lvl 45 atm, in pvp, this spec really can do some damage and keep me alive just long enough to hold points against a couple of incomings..

My main Assassin is 7/34/0 which I simply love because it has huge bursts of pain, movement and escape. Having switched to the dull 31/0/10 - sure its a great spec but you just dont have any kind of movement. Everything depends on guarding and AOEs.

But the 23/1/17 combines both and thus far really enjoying it. But I do have a question - 2 points in Impact control(Hollow) for SA, can I ask why? Are you using a shield or focus off hand? Because if its focus(which I like), its 2 points that I could use elsewhere.

To those thinking about this spec - go for it!

My question for the 23/1/17 has to do with popping Recklessness/relic/Adrenal. Is it best to do this after energize is procced, followed by a death field and then Thrash? I think I'm doing it wrong. I'm relatively min/maxed with mods. But I feel like I should be getting a little more "fist" out of my hits. I think maybe I'm using my reck/relic/adrenal at the wrong time.

I wonder if it's for the 10% heal that you still get from hollow?

Yeah it could well be. But atm I dont have Overload saber until lvl 50. So its not worth the points(but I have spent the points in hollow) as Im now lvl46, I cant be bothered to respec lol.

You use the relic/adrenal for the energize proc followed by a death field. That works just fine.

So now we get to see how this is runs minus the Relic/Adrenal combo. I'll probably be using this build for Rateds, or my 27/14/0 build. Not sure yet how Harnessed Darkness is going to shake out in WZs with the changes coming. I won't be going back and earning a whole new set of survivor gear so pretty much I'm gonna have to go for dps with survivability and utility. We should know in a couple of weeks.
