If you whack on DPS gear and go Darkness it's good too.

Somebody else would have to tell you what's better for endgame stuff though. Which is where your choice starts to count.
I'll go for Deception then I guess. It's not an endgame level playthrough I just wanna do the story again lol so it doesn't reeeeeally matter I guess but I hate fights taking ages to finish. I like to move through areas at a quick enough pace

Nothing lasts very long these days so go with whatever. You could run it naked and without and a spec and still kill things fast haha.

Since KOTFE boss fights never go past like 30 seconds. How much faster and easier do you wanna make it?

Sure it is. Not like u just tried to make ME the reason this game has gotten easier. I never even asked for easier. I asked which was best for damage so I can do it quick as possible same way I'd ask no matter what the difficulty. Answer or don't. No need to be that way.

You can use Shadowstrike from any angle now, it just does less damage from the front. But you will get plenty of back strikes if you have your companion in healer mode.

Shadows actually do quite well right now solo because they can do off tank dps, which is a nice mid point when soloing with a companion on heal mode.
