Assassin Deception Basics Guide

Deception

From the murky depths of the dark side, the deception assassin emerges with a calculated plan. As the assassin presses the attack, force lightning accumulates within their double bladed lightsaber results in  massive discharges that can ravage the assassins opponent before they even know what hit them.

  • Role: Damage
  • Type: Burst Damage
  • Weapon: Double-bladed Lightsaber
  • Distance: Short Range
  • Mirror: Shadow – Infiltration

Deception for New Players

  • Deception is melee range, which means you must be very close to your enemy to attack, which can be harder for new players to get used to, but you have a jump ability to help you close the gap between you and your enemy.
  • This discipline is very mobile and you can easily run and jump around while fighting without any issues!
  •  Most of your abilities are clickable at the beginning of a fight, while your main ability needs to have other things happen first before it can be used. However it will be come clickable over time even if you just use random attacks first.
  •  Deception is quite easy to learn as you mainly use the sparkling abilities highlighted on your bars as they light up! Keeping your energy or force levels up is fairly easy.

How to play a Deception Assassin

You can start playing Deception at level 1. To start playing Deception, you will need to first create a Assassin character, which can be played by Sith Warriors and Sith Inquisitors (or even the Jedi Knight and Jedi Consular if you unlock the dark-side Combat Styles.)

Once you are ingame, press K on your keyboard to open the Combat Style tab, and choose Deception from the three options. This choice is not permanent, you will be able to switch between all three options by finding a rest location like a cantina.

Below Level 80

Below Level 80

If you are below level 80, there are no true guides available to tell you what specific abilities you should be using, because the ideal rotation would change every level.

Instead, you can use this guide to figure out which of your abilities are attacks, which are defensive, and which are just useful.

Level 80

5 Ability Basic Rotation

Not quite ready to learn all your abilities yet? Use this quick 5-ability rotation for the Deception Assassin until you’re ready to read and learn from a true level 80 guide.

  • Discharge is your highest damage attack and should be used as soon as possible, but only when it’s glowing. It will glow when you’ve built up three stacks of a buff called “Static Charges,” which will happen naturally over time as you attack.
  • Ball Lightning is your second heaviest hitter, but you’ll only want to use it when it’s glowing or it uses too much energy.
  • Maul hits hard but also uses a lot of energy unless it’s glowing. Only use it when it’s not glowing if you are at almost full energy. Stand behind your target to do extra damage.
  • Reaping Strike is only usable when stealthed (or more realistically) when you critically hit. It’ll glow when it’s ready.
  • Voltaic Slash is the answer to “If all 4 abilities need to glow first what am I doing until then?” This is your spam-able filler move.

More than 3 Enemies

  • Lacerate is a great Area Damage attack to spam over and over for AoE damage. Can be buffed by 25% with the Lambaste choice at level 64. Will also generate similar Static Charge/Induction buffs like Voltaic Slash does.
  • Severing Slash is a choice at 68 you could take for a cone-shaped AoE, but usually lacerate is good enough.

Extra Tips

  • Start in Stealth to regain energy faster during the beginning of the fight.
  • Phantom Stride instantly moves you to the target, will give three stacks of the buff needed for Discharge, and lets you use Discharge right away.
  • Feeling spicy? Recklessness will give three stacks of the buff needed for Discharge. The best way to use it is to use Discharge, the Recklessness, then immediately afterwards use Discharge again for a huge burst of damage!
  • Feeling Extra spicy? Force Cloak can be used right after Recklessness to reduce its cooldown by a huge amount. If you are playing alone, Force Cloak can end combat and reset the fight, so use this trick in group content only.
  • Feeling SUPER spicy? Assassinate is a powerful filler attack, but you can only use it when your target is below 30% health. With the Reaper’s Rush tree choice (level 73), it will also become useable anytime you use Phantom Stride first.
  • Feeling TOO SPICY TO HANDLE? If you have time before the fight starts, use Lacerate to spin around twice early which will make Ball Lightning glow.
  • Mind Trap is a special ability sometimes known as a CC, a Crowd Control, a sleep or a sap. It can only be used while you are stealthed and out of combat, and it is used to put enemies to sleep. Sleeping enemies allows your group to sneak past them, or sometimes just keeps them out of the fight as long as no one attacks them. While you can’t put bosses to sleep, if you are playing Flashpoints, stealthers are often expected to go into stealth and put smaller enemies in-between bosses to sleep.

Defensive & Healing Abilities

Use these abilities to help yourself stay alive. The Assassin has these defensive and healing abilities and you'll want to know where they are in a difficult fight.

Useful Abilities

These abilities may not be directly for attacking, but they are used heavily by skilled Assassins in combat to turn the tide of a fight.

  • Seethe - Regeneration - Regain health out of battle.Level 1
  • Electrocute - Stun - You can use your short stun on weaker enemies to stop them from running around, from casting abilities, to stop them from damaging you, or just to keep them out of the fight in general.Level 7
  • Stealth - Stealth - Enter Stealth to sneak around or sneak up to enemies. Stronger enemies can see you coming, but you can sneak past weaker ones. You can only enter Stealth when you are outside of combat unless you use your Combat Stealth ability.Level 10
  • Unbreakable Will - Stun Break - If you are stunned and can’t move, you can use this ability to unstun yourself.Level 10
  • Force Speed - Movement - Increases movement speed by 150% for 2 seconds. Does not break stealth.Level 15
  • Jolt - Interrupt - Every class has an interrupt ability that allows them to interrupt an enemy while they are casting. Enemy castbars that fill up from left to right are called casts and can be interrupted and the ability will be stopped, but castbars that go from right to left deal damage the entire time they are channeling. Using your interrupt in combat is very useful as it can prevent the enemy from damaging you, or sometimes even prevent them from stunning you or knocking you back!Level 19
  • Mind Trap - Crowd Control - Your crowd control (CC) is a special type of stun you can only use outside of combat. You use it before a fight, to temporarily knock an opponent out of the fight while you deal with the other enemies. Accidentally damaging your crowd control'd target will wake them up.Level 19
  • Overload - Optional Knockback Level 27 Option 1/3 - Pushes enemies back.Level 27
  • Force Cloak - Combat Stealth - Enter Stealth while you are in combat, either to run away, to sneak off and heal up, or to take advantage of stealth in the fight. If you enter Combat Stealth while you are alone or all your team mates are dead, the fight may reset.Level 31
  • Mass Mind Control - Detaunt - Your detaunt ability will cause enemies to lose interest in your character, at least for a short time. This is most useful if you're getting attacked during group fights when your tank is supposed to be taking the damage, or when your companion is set to tank.Level 31
  • Force Slow - Slow - Slows slow the enemy down, making it hard for them to run away.Level 35
  • Low Slash - Stun - Stuns allow you to knock enemies out of the fight temporarily. Some stuns break on damage - so if you attack the enemy while they are stunned with any type of attack, they will no longer be stunned.Level 47
  • Phantom Stride - Leap - Jump to a faraway enemy.Level 60
  • Whirlwind - Optional Crowd Control Level 68 Option 2/3 - Your crowd control (CC) is a special type of stun you can only use outside of combat. You use it before a fight, to temporarily knock an opponent out of the fight while you deal with the other enemies. Accidentally damaging your crowd control'd target will wake them up.Level 68

Tree Choices

As you level up, you will be able to make choices about how you play your Deception Assassin with the Ability Tree, which can be opened with the K key on your keyboard. If you do not choose one, a default option will be chosen for you.

You will have eight choices to make as you level up, at levels 23, 27, 39, 43, 51, 64, 68 and 73. All of these Ability Tree choices are not permanent choices and can be changed later. If you are following a Level 80 guide on how to play your Deception Assassin, you will need to make sure to choose the same options as they have. You may not have the same choices chosen as a friend who is also playing a Deception Assassin.

Level 23 Choice: Reaping Strike Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Reaping Strike to change at level 23. Your options are Penetrating Slash, Reaper, and Energized Blade.

Reaping Strike

Lash the target with an acrobatic strike, dealing weapon damage. Only usable from stealth or within 15 seconds of performing a critical strike. Requires a double-bladed lightsaber or electrostaff.

Penetrating Slash

Increases the armor penetration and critical hit chance of Reaping Strike by 20%.

Increases the armor penetration and critical hit chance of Reaping Strike by 20%.

Reaper

Killing an enemy within 3 seconds of dealing damage with Reaping Strike resets the cooldown of all damaging abilities and increases your critical hit chance by 40% for 6 seconds.

Killing an enemy within 3 seconds of dealing damage with Reaping Strike resets the cooldown of all damaging abilities and increases your critical hit chance by 40% for 6 seconds.

Energized Blade

The cooldown of Reaping Strike is reduced by 6 seconds whenever you critically hit with a direct Force attack. Reaping Strike costs 10 additional Force.

The cooldown of Reaping Strike is reduced by 6 seconds whenever you critically hit with a direct Force attack. Reaping Strike costs 10 additional Force.

General Suggestion: Energized Blade - The constant cooldown reset of Reaping Strike far outweighs the additional force cost. This is by far your best increase to damage.

Level 27 Choice

Choose from one of three Assassin abilities at Level 27, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Deception Assassin for the Level 27 choice are Overload, Maul Spike, and Force Magnetism.

Overload

Deals energy damage and knocks back up to 8 enemies within a 15-meter cone in front of you, binding them in electricity and immobilizing them for 5 seconds. Standard and weak enemies are additionally knocked down for 3 seconds. Direct damage dealt after 2 seconds ends the immobilize effect prematurely.

Pushes enemies back.

Maul Spike

Dealing damage with Maul from stealth stun the target for 2 seconds. Standard and weak enemies are knocked down.

Dealing damage with Maul from stealth stun the target for 2 seconds. Standard and weak enemies are knocked down.

Force Magnetism

Force Cloak increases movement speed by 50%. Force Speed lasts 1 second longer and slows all enemies within 5 meters by 75% for 2.5 seconds when activated.

Force Cloak increases movement speed by 50%. Force Speed lasts 1 second longer and slows all enemies within 5 meters by 75% for 2.5 seconds when activated.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Overload - You can use Overload to knock enemies off ledges for an instant kill, or Maul Spike for a stun if no ledges will be available. Doesn't work on bosses or stronger enemies.

Operation Suggestion: Overload - You can use Overload to knock enemies off ledges for an instant kill, or Maul Spike for a stun if no ledges will be available. Note that most operations enemies will be immune to knockbacks, but may still be useful in some areas.

Solo Suggestion: Force Magnetism - Force Magnetism can really help a stealthy character solo certain content faster, but for tangible combat benefits, you can also take Overload to knock enemies off ledges for an instant kill, or Maul Spike for a stun if no ledges will be available.

Level 39 Choice: Voltaic Slash Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Voltaic Slash to change at level 39. Your options are Reckless Voltage, Voltaic Engine, and Voltaic Defense.

Voltaic Slash

Strikes the target twice, dealing weapon damage with each hit. Each use of this ability builds Voltage, which gives Shock and Ball Lightning 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. Replaces Thrash.

Reckless Voltage

Voltaic Slash deals 10% more damage and reduces the cooldown of Recklessness by 5 seconds whenever it deals damage.

Voltaic Slash deals 10% more damage and reduces the cooldown of Recklessness by 5 seconds whenever it deals damage.

Voltaic Engine

Voltage stacks built by Voltaic Slash increases your critical hit chance by 10% per stack.

Voltage stacks built by Voltaic Slash increases your critical hit chance by 10% per stack.

Voltaic Defense

Voltage stacks built by Voltaic Slash increases your damage reduction by 5% per stack. In addition, Voltaic Slash slows its target by 30% for 6 seconds.

Voltage stacks built by Voltaic Slash increases your damage reduction by 5% per stack. In addition, Voltaic Slash slows its target by 30% for 6 seconds.

Solo Suggestion: Voltaic Engine - A 20% buff to crit chance after two voltaic slashes is great. Take voltaic defense for damage reduction if solo and in need of some survivability.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Voltaic Engine - A 20% buff to crit chance after two voltaic slashes is great. The buff applies to all abilities, so this is the best choice in the tier for damage.

Operation Suggestion: Voltaic Engine - A 20% buff to crit chance after two voltaic slashes is great. The buff applies to all abilities, so this is the best choice in the tier for damage.

Level 43 Choice

Choose from one of three Assassin abilities at Level 43, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Deception Assassin for the Level 43 choice are Lightning Engine, Lightning Critical, and Overcharge Saber.

Lightning Engine

Critically hitting with Voltaic Slash or a direct Force attack generates 10 Force and heals you by 1% of your max health. This effect cannot occur more than once per second.

Critically hitting with Voltaic Slash or a direct Force attack generates 10 Force and heals you by 1% of your max health. This effect cannot occur more than once per second.

Lightning Critical

Force spending melee attacks now benefit from Recklessness and consume its stacks. You deal additional energy damage to targets you critically hit with melee attacks. This effect cannot happen more than once every 6 seconds.

Force spending melee attacks now benefit from Recklessness and consume its stacks. You deal additional energy damage to targets you critically hit with melee attacks. This effect cannot happen more than once every 6 seconds.

Overcharge Saber

Overcharges your lightsaber charge for 15 seconds, immediately restoring 15% of your max health. While active, Overcharge Saber increases the damage of Surging Charge by 100%, the chance to trigger Surging Charge by 50%, and healing you when their effects are triggered. The triggered healing cannot occur more than once per second. Requires a double-bladed lightsaber or electrostaff.

The triggered healing cannot occur more than once per second. Requires a double-bladed lightsaber or electrostaff.

General Suggestion: Lightning Engine - Voltaic Slash should be critting pretty often and the force generation here should help offset the extra 10 force cost to reaping strike we picked at level 23!

Level 51 Choice

Choose from one of three Assassin abilities at Level 51, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Deception Assassin for the Level 51 choice are Formless Phantom, Fade, and Dark Stability .

Formless Phantom

All area effect damage is reduced by 60% for 15 seconds after Mass Mind Control is activated.

All area effect damage is reduced by 60% for 15 seconds after Mass Mind Control is activated.

Fade

Reduces the cooldown of Force Cloak by 30 seconds and extends its duration by 5 seconds.

Dark Stability

Activating Deflection grants 6 seconds of immunity to stun, sleep, lift, and incapacitating effects.

Activating Deflection grants 6 seconds of immunity to stun, sleep, lift, and incapacitating effects.

General Suggestion: Formless Phantom - As a damage player, the number one source of damage done to you is likely area damage (so long as there is a tank or tank companion around). This choice makes you MUCH more durable. That said, if you find yourself using Force Cloak a ton, Fade is also a pretty versatile choice.

Level 64 Choice

Choose from one of three Assassin abilities at Level 64, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Deception Assassin for the Level 64 choice are Obfuscating Speed, Force Phase, and Lambaste.

Obfuscating Speed

Increases your movement speed by 15% and your effective stealth level by 10. Activating Shock, Ball Lightning, or Eradicate increasing your movement speed by 50% for 9 seconds. This effect cannot occur more than once every 18 seconds.

Increases your movement speed by 15% and your effective stealth level by 10. Activating Shock, Ball Lightning, or Eradicate increasing your movement speed by 50% for 9 seconds. This effect cannot occur more than once every 18 seconds.

Force Phase

Force Speed and Phantom Stride grants Force Phase, removing all movement-impairing effects and granting immunity to them for 2 seconds.

Force Speed and Phantom Stride grants Force Phase, removing all movement-impairing effects and granting immunity to them for 2 seconds.

Lambaste

Increases the damage dealt by Lacerate by 25%.

Increases the damage dealt by Lacerate by 25%.

General Suggestion: Lambaste - Unlike the other two Assassin disciplines that don't rely on Lacerate's damage so much, Deception can make great use of this talent. Take it by default, unless you don't need the AoE, which frees you up to take Force Phase to get out of slows and roots faster.

Level 68 Choice

Choose from one of three Assassin abilities at Level 68, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Deception Assassin for the Level 68 choice are Severing Slash, Whirlwind, and Force Shroud.

Severing Slash

Strikes targets in a cone, dealing weapon damage and slowing their movement speed by 50% and applying Charged Veil to you for 3 seconds. Charged Veil increases the damage of your Force attacks by 5% and your damage reduction by 5% for each target hit with Severing Slash. Requires a double-bladed lightsaber or electrostaff.

Charged Veil increases the damage of your Force attacks by 5% and your damage reduction by 5% for each target hit with Severing Slash. Requires a double-bladed lightsaber or electrostaff.

Whirlwind

Traps the target in a whirlwind for 8 seconds. Non-player, non-standard, and non-weak targets heal rapidly while trapped. Damage causes this effect to end prematurely and stuns the target for 2 seconds.

Your crowd control (CC) is a special type of stun you can only use outside of combat. You use it before a fight, to temporarily knock an opponent out of the fight while you deal with the other enemies. Accidentally damaging your crowd control'd target will wake them up.

Force Shroud

Purges all hostile removable effects and increases your chance to resist Force and tech attacks by 200% for 3 seconds. Does not break Stealth.

Purges all hostile removable effects and increases your chance to resist Force and tech attacks by 200% for 3 seconds. Does not break Stealth.

General Suggestion: Force Shroud - A self cleanse is very useful in pretty much every form of group content not to mention this is an extremely powerful "usually-only-for-tanks" defensive cooldown! Take as default for sure.

Level 73 Choice

Choose from one of three Assassin abilities at Level 73, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Deception Assassin for the Level 73 choice are Reaper's Rush, Avoidance, and Shroud of Madness.

Reaper's Rush

Phantom Stride grants Reaper's Rush, allowing your next Assassinate to be used on any target, regardless of remaining health. Reaper's Rush lasts for 10 seconds. Additionally, if the target of your Phantom Stride is killed within 10 seconds of using Phantom Stride, Phantom Stride's cooldown is reset.

Phantom Stride grants Reaper's Rush, allowing your next Assassinate to be used on any target, regardless of remaining health. Reaper's Rush lasts for 10 seconds. Additionally, if the target of your Phantom Stride is killed within 10 seconds of using Phantom Stride, Phantom Stride's cooldown is reset.

Avoidance

Reduces the cooldown of Jolt by 2 seconds, Unbreakable Will by 30 seconds, and Force Speed by 5 seconds.

Shroud of Madness

Activating Force Cloak grants 2 seconds of Force Shroud.

Activating Force Cloak grants 2 seconds of Force Shroud.

General Suggestion: Shroud of Madness - With Assassinate being less useful lately, Reaper's Rush isn't really a needed choice for your rotation. 2 seconds of Shroud will help guarantee your survival in sticky situations though!

Solo Suggestion: A 20% buff to crit chance after two voltaic slashes is great. Take voltaic defense for damage reduction if solo and in need of some survivability.

Critically hitting with Voltaic Slash or a direct Force attack generates 10 Force and heals you by 1% of your max health. This effect cannot occur more than once per second.

General Suggestion: Voltaic Slash should be critting pretty often and the force generation here should help offset the extra 10 force cost to reaping strike we picked at level 23!

All area effect damage is reduced by 60% for 15 seconds after Mass Mind Control is activated.

All area effect damage is reduced by 60% for 15 seconds after Mass Mind Control is activated.

General Suggestion: As a damage player, the number one source of damage done to you is likely area damage (so long as there is a tank or tank companion around). This choice makes you MUCH more durable. That said, if you find yourself using Force Cloak a ton, Fade is also a pretty versatile choice.

LvL64
LambasteOptional Passive Level 64 Option 3/3

Increases the damage dealt by Lacerate by 25%.

Increases the damage dealt by Lacerate by 25%.

General Suggestion: Unlike the other two Assassin disciplines that don't rely on Lacerate's damage so much, Deception can make great use of this talent. Take it by default, unless you don't need the AoE, which frees you up to take Force Phase to get out of slows and roots faster.

LvL68
Severing SlashOptional Area Attacks 5m (melee range) Level 68 Option 1/3

Strikes targets in a cone, dealing weapon damage and slowing their movement speed by 50% and applying Charged Veil to you for 3 seconds.

Purges all hostile removable effects and increases your chance to resist Force and tech attacks by 200% for 3 seconds. Does not break Stealth.

Purges all hostile removable effects and increases your chance to resist Force and tech attacks by 200% for 3 seconds. Does not break Stealth.

General Suggestion: A self cleanse is very useful in pretty much every form of group content not to mention this is an extremely powerful "usually-only-for-tanks" defensive cooldown! Take as default for sure.

Activating Force Cloak grants 2 seconds of Force Shroud.

Activating Force Cloak grants 2 seconds of Force Shroud.

General Suggestion: With Assassinate being less useful lately, Reaper's Rush isn't really a needed choice for your rotation. 2 seconds of Shroud will help guarantee your survival in sticky situations though!
