Sith Inquisitor Assassin Builds (updated for 2.0)

Sith Inquisitors in SWTOR can become one of two advanced classes at level 10, a Sith Assassin (DPS / Tank Class) or a Sith Sorcerer (DPS / Healer). The Sith Assassin uses a double bladed light saber they use to do impressive melee damage. The assassin class also make good tanks, they are more of an avoidance based tank but do make use of their force skills and shields to tank. Assassins have three trees to choose talents from: Darkness (DPS tree), Deception (DPS tree) and Madness (a shared DPS tree shared with the Sith Sorcerer Class).

Below I will list the best sith assassin builds to use for your sith inquisitor so you do not have to wastetime figuring out what sith assassin builds work best.

Changes made to the Sith Assassin class in the 2.0 expansion:

New Abilities:

Phase Walk, has been added. Phase Walk allows the Assassin to place a mark that can be instantly returned to at a later time, after which Phase Walk goes on cooldown. This ability is usable in stealth mode and trainable at level 51.

General

Tumult has been removed from the game.

All abilities that formerly required a double-bladed Lightsaber may now be performed with an Electrostaff.

Guard: Crowd control effects that break on damage will no longer break from damage redirected through Guard. For example, a blinded guarder will no longer be broken out of the blind from damage dealt to a guarded target within guard range

Guard: Effects that are triggered through dealing damage which affect a target who is guarded will no longer also affect the guarder.

Discharge (Lightning) no longer has a cooldown. Discharge (Dark) now has a 6 second cooldown. Discharge (Surging) has been redesigned. This ability is now only usable with one or more Static Charge, which builds when Surging Charge triggers. Discharge (Surging) deals more damage per Static Charge consumed. Discharge (Surging) no longer has a cooldown.

Overcharge Saber now additionally increases the chance to trigger Saber Charges by 35% and now heals players for 15% of max health when used.

Discharge's accuracy debuff now lasts 30 seconds (up from 18) when using Dark Charge.

Mind Control and Mass Mind Control can no longer miss.

Darkness

Dark Ward no longer has a Force cost and now has a 15-second cooldown.

Dark Ward now has 15 Charges (up from 8).

Electrify now makes Shock generate 15% more threat per point and cost 15% less Force per point while Dark Charge is active.

Wither now has a 9-second cooldown and costs 20 Force. Damage remains mostly unchanged.

Deception

Surging Charge can now only trigger once every 4.5 seconds and deals significantly more damage. In addition, when it triggers it builds 1 stack of Static Charge. Static Charge is consumed by Discharge to deal additional damage.

Voltaic Slash no longer increases the damage dealt by Shock. Instead, this ability stacks up to 2 times and builds Voltage, which gives Shock a 50% chance per stack to automatically trigger Surging Charge and bypass its rate limit.

Madness (Assassin)

Creeping Terror's damage has been slightly increased.
