    its not too bad defensive wise. if you wanted a ganking build im using something like this while leveling, dungeons, and loooots of world pvp.

    2 blinds, stun, perma stealth. you can take 1 point out of the sin build for one more somewhere in NB to get blackout. you retain RS for the gap closing. the downside of this build is you dont have the vanish from infiltrator but you get all the fun crap from sin. you can really go either way.

    On your finisher with NB/Sin builds do you use Final Blow or do you use Blazing Strike?

    i only use the NB attacks because i dont take any of the sin talents to buff their attacks. blazing strike with 5x heat retention hits nearly as hard as a detonate for me sometimes.

    Do you guys think Scourge of darkness is useful in pvp(wf's)?

    I opted to put 3 points into Improved Final Blow instead of Improved Blazing Strike. Heat Retention goes off on either but I still second guess this choice all the time.

    Yes.

    Separate scourge from your other finishers, if you use it in a combo macro it will fire when you don't want sometimes.

    fire and death is a good talent in all occasions. the 3% passive is better than melted skin technically. both is just that much better. not to mention the reduced damage. lingering flame in pvp, imo, isnt worth it due to the fact that you're keeping a dot on someone when you may need to blind them. using blinds to control someone while you reposition, run, whatever is the key to taking on people higher level than you or in better gear. or even multiple people. along with your 2 stuns you can effectively control someone until death.

    Why not take puncture, another 2pt building ability and bleed?

    Also, which weapon enchants do you go with? Fell blades and Hellfire? Or one of the sin poisons?

    puncture can be taken depending. if you take puncture you're better off not taking the second blind. i prefer to go dotless if i can help it. (though i think i may have taken serrated blades on accident on the build i posted). in general warfronts ill use hellfire/fell. if im going for someone i dont think will heal themselves or cant ill use lethal poison. for general questing i use hellfire/lethal. same goes for dungeons.
