Gambler's Cut is better than Sting of the Wasp. It has higher dps.

 

Build is missing the Stalker ATO2 proc.

 

Dark Armor has no KB protection. Will need to slot for it. Karma, Steadfast, Blessing of the Zephyr etc.

 

Just some general reslotting. S/L resist is well above cap so a lot of the IO set bonuses aren't really helping. Like the Reactive Def IOs in Combat Jump, Weave and Shadow Dweller. Or all Aegis and Steadfast IOs could be removed, with only a single end redux IO slotted in Tough, and S/L will still be capped at 75%.

 

I think Placate is is still an autohit power so accuracy isn't needed. 

 

Dark Regeneration needs to hit to heal. Some accuracy would help it. 

 

Cloak of Fear benefits with accuracy, Cloud Senses IO set would be better than Dark Watchers.

 

Hide costs no endurance.

 

I'm a fan of Oppressive Gloom. I use it and CoF at the same time. If a target isn't quivering in fear, he may be stunned or vice versa. Or maybe it's overkill, I don't know.

 

All in all, it's a really good build. Great job! I like the overall stats you got. I wonder how the build would change if you take Divine Avalanche and integrated it into an attack chain. L/M would softcap easier, it would free up a lot of slotting to possibly improve other areas. But in the end would likely be a dps loss.

4 dps difference between the two (+GC), 38 dpa difference (+SotW). The difference is minimal. Though, I'm sure someone with better numbers than I can tell if the higher frequency, lower damage works out better for +Crit damage.

Death is the best debuff.

GC has a 65%, and SotW has a 75% chance to build AF. It's more than just a 4 dps difference between the two powers. T1 and T2 powers are typically the weakest attack in a chain. Using the quicker cast power means stronger attacks are used more frequently over time.

 

But I've never tested it with NB and maybe NB's longer AS cast time could affect it. But I've gotten better results (VS a pylon) using Initial Strike over Heavy Blow (Stalker StJ) and better results using Nimble Slash over Power Slice (Stalker DB).

So, SotW has the edge, over time, in AS stacks, too... Interesting.

I remember from my number crunching days on my Kat/Regen Scrap... I had GC > SotW due to the DPS differences... Then found in play (not pylons) that I had a smoother chain, and less slivers of mobs to kill using the higher alpha of SotW. IIRC, I ran GD > SotW > SD > SotW... Never played Nin/ since it was a bad copy of Kat....

Death is the best debuff.
