Just want to clarify or expand on the Rotation/priority list for Deception in the OP.

Ability list/rotation
Assassinate (Target at 30% health or less)
Maul (Exploit Weakness)
Discharge (every CD, after 5 stacks of static charge for burst)
Shock (2x Induction & 2x Voltaic Slash)
Voltaic Slash (Use it early and use it often, ie all the time)
Saber Strike (Conserving Force, Building up force with 2 pc. PvE set bonus)
My chains are broken.The Force shall free me.

Hi,
Is Deception still better than Darkness or Madness starting out or if I want to go Darkness or Madness just go Darkness or Madness right away I'll most likely be using the PvE 31/0/10 or PvE Standard Madness?

Is Madness a better tree to level with because of this comment "Note that Deception is overall considered to be lesser PvE damage than Madness, both for its higher melee dependency and lower sustained damage."
Also Can the Survivability build be used for both PvP & PvE?

Personally, I would recommend starting madness/darkness to level then switch to deception at 45+. That's what I did and it worked great, I definitely also see a marked improvement on dps, although my gear has gotten much better. I may try switching back and comparing, but having too much fun with deception right now.

Is this a recent bug? Seem pretty game breaking for a couple of builds...

Is the PvE Standard any good for both PvE & PvP?

It is good enough for both.
Minor changes are possible though depending on situation. For example, you are not supposed to use Electrocute in PvE ops.

Why can't we use Electrocute?
