Yeah I could as well. Without the talent it is a tiny little dot.
On the Internet, you can be anything you want. It is strange so many people choose to be stupid.

This is the build I currently use (27/19/0). I'm not full tank tree (only go up to harnessed darkness), but I don't have any issues with surviveablity. I am still playing with builds tho, but this is one I have found a lot of success with.

If I ever got into a ranked team I would undoubtedly adjust to a build that would be better suited to ranked, but since I don't do ranked at this time, this works pretty good in pugs.
Do you run in dark ward or surging charge?

Dark Charge. I only took Surging Charge and Induction to be able to get Fade.

I actually noticed a mistake in the build. I have corrected it here (29/17/0)

I'd take 2 our of endurance and drop them into duplicity. Otherwise looks fine. Not sure I can live without DF so I'll prob stick with darkness/madness hybrid, but looks like strong survivability and single-target dps in that spec.

I've never seen the big circle on the enemy side, though it's possible it just happens nobody ever has this talent. Even if it's true, you can always see the small version of the beacon and it's not exactly hard to spot, so I don't see how it gives away more than the usual information if your enemy knows what to look for.

As far as I know, it'll show the type of circle approximately a few seconds after it's been cast,

What would you say to a spec that uses Assassin's Mark? I'm a part time off-tank for my guild's operations, but I don't get used very often, and only ever as an off-tank. Is there a spec you'd recommend that would do well in both worlds? (I hate respecing)

I'm currently trying out: http://www.torhead.com/skill-calc#20...dfdGdRZcMcZb.3

I tend to find a healer, but when none will marry with me, or they're taken, I enjoy being really annoying and bouncing from one low HP target to another. I'm finding my Mauls are doing a large amount of damage that way, but I'm unsure as to whether the points would be better spent elsewhere.
The thing is, I don't tend to use Thrash all that often - unless I'm protecting a healer - as my targets are usually low on HP, and so Assassinate and Maul seem to be better choices.

Using this Darkness/Madness thrash hybrid, pretty close to what I was using pre 2.0. Lots of survivability and utility with pretty good DPS... DF and spike out of stealth are just too hard to give up. The Darkness/Deception build does look fun single target though, and getting fade does give you a little more CC utility for stealth > spike.

Nothing wrong with that spec - standard full darkness and prob the spec of choice for rated wzs atm. You *could* move assassin's mark for more utility (obfuscation) or survivability (Shroud of Darkness). Otherwise I'd say you're good to go.

IMO you've given up too much to get DF. You're missing Chair Shock and Wither for a very expensive (50 force) DF. Honestly just go full darkness if you're going to get out of combat spike and conspirator's cloak.
