What's Your Rotation For Mobs?

I'm new to MMOs. I've got a lvl 50 Sith Assassin and was wondering what are folks' common rotation when handling mobs. I usually have found myself just going into Stealth, Mind Control whoever the toughest one in the mob, then Maul (that's the backstabbing one, right?) and then just alternate between Force Lightning>Shock>Vicious Slash and repeat.

If you are using madness then I would advice using this rotation.
1. shock
1.1. recklessness if off cool down
2. death field
3. discharge
3.1. damage buffs, over-charged saber, crit/surge relic, rakata crit stim
4. creeping terror
5. thrash, if out of force use saber strike (repeat until crushing darkness becomes instant/free cast)
6. crushing darkness (cd)
7. restart from #3
8. assassinate if target is below 30%, if not then skip #8
9. restart from #1

How exactly are you using Maul on an enemy after you've taunted it with Mind Control? Taunt = Aggro = Enemy facing you = no Maul.

Also, Inquisitors don't get "Vicious Slash"

Mind Control is CC, not Taunt.

No, he is right. Mind Control is taunt, hence mass mind control is aoe taunt. Mind Trap is CC....This post just feels weird, the OP didn't even bother to read proper skill names...at least do that much...

You are right, my mistake. I guess OP had the same error than me, too many skills with similar name
