Hey guys I just got out of a novare coast and I just did 3.5 million damage. It was 7 healers on my team and I was full kinetic spec with tank gear. This obviously means that kinetic in tank gear is the most viable dps spec.

Now I need an ice pack for my fingers.....

Not sure if you thought I was complaining which I didn't think I came off of that. I was just saying I have never seen an assassin/shadow push out that much dps in an average warzone where there is a set time limit (VS and huttball). Numbers get out of hand when you play a NC or CW where no one caps south or middle for the majority of the fight and in that I agree with you. I was saying personally I like my best dps was on a vs and hit like 680 per second or something along that line.

total Dmg in WZ means next to nothing for inf shadow. (you actually do less dmg if you are killing your opponent.) To me what matters the most is kills, deathblows, vs how many times i died myself. All of this, of course, comes in a big 2nd. to Win or Loss at the end.

All the number crunching aside, I switched from kinetic to infiltration after the upgrade and am having an absolute freaking blast. And in the end that's all that matters.

That is what I did back when Battle Master was amazing before I quit. I definitely thought it was more fun, but you do lose utility and survivability. With a good team around you, I think infiltration is what I would go with..........But if you're running solo in PVP and you are going for the win I think kinetic is the way to go. Or the hybrid build(which I haven't used since I came back to SWTOR a weekish ago).

Not the worst spec in the game, but definitely a spec that, in the interests of effective team play, should be benched. I've played Infiltration since I started this game and I've been forced to come to the conclusion that it's only a spec for goofing around in, in normal warzones when you want to see pretty numbers on sorcs. Now, I usually play a KC hybrid/KC tank build because force pull is way too much fun and I don't die as fast.
