amazing post! I have two builds I recommend adding to the list as well

One build I would like to recommend for the Madness PvE builds is the hybrid build with deception - 0/13/28

Basically, you sacrifice creeping terror which seems to be a low damage dot that is relatively low on the priority list and the increase to our self healing in order to get much better force regen due to adding dark embrace and darkswell as well as making our maul crit harder and shock cost less due to induction.

In other words, you sacrifice your multidotting a tad in order to have better force management as a whole.


Another build I might recommend is a deception PvP build where you ignore saber conduit and static charge - 5/31/3 with 2 points left over

Basically, I don't feel that saber conduit and static charge are worth it as a pvp talent since you're not going to get much regen from it and targets will usually be dead before you build up enough static charges for it to be worth the talent points. However, you get to reduce the cooldowns on almost every major CD you have which allows you to use them much more often in PvP.

One other thing to add is this build acknowledges that deception assassins are extremely squishy in PvP. Since you haven't put as many points into improving surging charge, you can easily use dark charge and a shield to immediately increase your survivability which is a huge advantage since you can hold off more opponents for longer than you would otherwise

Great read, I wish the Stat priority was a bit clearer though

I'm running the Armor Piercing Deception build and I'm guessing stat priority is :
Willpower > Crit > Surge > Power > Everything Else?

Or is it not that simple?
