Major Sith Assassin Deception Talents
Dark Embrace – while in stealth mode and for 6 seconds after leaving stealth mode, Force regeneration is increased by [25 / 50]%.
Darkswell – exiting stealth mode now finishes the cooldown of Blackout, and Blackout can now be used out of stealth mode, granting 6 seconds of Dark Embrace and restoring 15 Force. While Dark Embrace is active, all damage taken is reduced by 25%. In addition, Force Cloak no longer reduces healing done and received.
Surging Charge – charges your lightsaber with raw surging Force, giving your attacks a 25% chance to deal 647 internal damage and build 1 Static Charge. Static Charges stack up to 3 times and increase the damage dealt by your next Discharge. This effect cannot occur more than once every 4.5 seconds. Requires a double-bladed lightsaber or electrostaff. Does not break Stealth.
Induction – increases the critical strike damage dealt by Maul by [15 / 30]%. In addition, Thrash, Maul, Lacerate, Assassinate and Voltaic Slash have a [50 / 100]% chance to grant Induction while Surging Charge is active, reducing the Force cost of your next Shock by 25%. Stacks up to 2 times.
Duplicity – direct damage attacks have a [10 / 20 / 30]% chance to grant Duplicity, causing your next Maul to deal 30% more damage and cost 75% less Force. This effect cannot occur more than once every 15 seconds. Each rank beyond the first reduces this rate limit by 3 seconds.
Voltaic Slash – strikes the target twice, dealing 1184 – 1263 weapon damage with each hit. Each use of this ability builds Voltage, which gives Shock a 50% chance to automatically trigger your Surging Charge off of its normal rate limit. Stacks up to 2 times. Requires a double-bladed lightsaber or electrostaff.
