Edit: This. Also the guy you quoting saying he doesn't know what Alacrity is? You can mouse over that stat, and at the bare minimum you can take out a dictionary and see that it means 'speed'. Not too hard for those with a minimum of elementary scholastic accomplishment.[/QUOTE]

See above post... you could of offered help, but instead, you offered so much more....

As I mentioned earlier, I look at the crit as a way to help Lightning barrage go off, especially since FL is my main nuke. Yes, I do have great regen, but again, I need the points, and who knows, those extra reserves may come in very handy on longer fights. Also, since I don't have anything to help my healing efficiency, in an emergency I can toss extra bubbles and heals.

As far as the backlash, it might be great for trash, but I would imagine that anything boss related is going to be immune, and all the way up to the last boss in EV, the trash isn't that hard. I can't speak to the other Op, or many of the hardmodes just yet.

Oh, and FYI Alacrity = haste. It also effects Lighting barrage and the GCD on anything that isn't an instant cast, so I'm starting to see lighting barrage casts of FL at ~1 sec.
I addressed the range thing in post above, so wont get into that again... This build would work for your points you were worried about, so you can still have your PS, just another thought if you see you are not using all your force... but to each his own...

You can change the two points from backlash to reserve for extra force if you need, but it will work to get you what you had... in fact this is very close to my build.. I am just testing to see if the 3% crit increase would be better than finishing forked lightning and extra point for something else.. our madness trees are the same...

As far as the trash mobs, vs elite... it works on elites per the language, it doesnt say only on normal or weak... and lets face it, on bosses, most things like blinds, roots, stuns, etc dont ever work to there full duration anyway... its the nature of bosses and how tough they are.. if they did, you could stun and root rotate with the right group and they would never be able to hit anyone.....

Again, we are just discussing... I never once said (as someone else implied) that you were wrong with this build or I am right... its called feedback.... please take it as such... I would love to hear opinions on builds and argue the weak and strong points of each...

You have pretty good force regen, so you can also pull the two points out of reserve because you really dont need the extra 100 force, unless you are really running low... but shouldnt be a problem...

The only other difference I see is that you can put two points in backlash. I dont understand why more people dont do this. Its a three second blind when your barrier breaks on anyone you cast it on... Thats three seconds of no damage... and we spam shield all the time on tanks (I know I do). Three seconds of 4 mobs not doing damage is alot... Since you placed points in barrage to make it stronger, I assume you use it alot... so why not have it blind when it pops since it will pop all the time?

Here is what I am going.... (madness first)

What do you think???

PS I dont really understand what Polarity shift does... because I dont really know what alacrity is... is that a stat, and if so... what does it boost?
The problem I really have isn't so much that you don't understand how to find what alacrity is in this game, it is the fact that you don't take a talent due to the fact that you don't seem to know what it does. If you don't know what a talent does, what business do you have entering a thread and showing your spec as some sort of something anyone should consider.

It is one thing to not know what something means, but when providing a spec in a thread on a hybrid spec, at least know what you are talking about and know the skills a bit better.

And as I have mentioned... there is no alacrity stat as I have looked for and know one here has bothered to say where it is in the game as I have asked repeadidly.... Its not under anything under your settings or charcter bio as a stat.... so YES, I will not be putting a point into something that Bioware has made so hard to just see what your rating of this stat is or people on this forum are so against helping someone out in just telling them where it is or what it does... So what is so wrong with NOT taking something blindly since you dont understand it... it could be as worthless as lightning spire.... but then again.. I dont know. So yes, I am going forward with my build without that stat until I understand it better and determine wether it is usefull or not..... some say it is worth it.... others dont bother....

I love that once again someone comments on the stat without saying anything about it...

You have already been told what Alacrity is....why do I have to mention it. But seriously, you asked what Alacrity is. You said WTH is Polarity Shift. You clearly didn't get the talent because you didn't know what Alacrity is. But in case you forgot, Alacrity refers to haste of your force abilities . As far as figuring out what it is, if you bothered to hover over Activation Speed in the Force part on your sorcerer, you will see that all your activation speed comes from Alacrity .
