On paper, this build should be doing massive up-front damage:

49 Sin / 22 BD / 5 Ranger

Now hear me out, with around 30% base crit, add 5% more crit from Ranger, 5% from ruthlessness, and 10% dex from BD that should bring the base crit up to near 50%. Then you factor in an extra 10% crit on Savage Strikes, 50% crit on stealth attacks (10% for backstab) - which means stealth attacks should crit almost 100% of the time, giving subsequent attacks 15% more damage from Hack and Slash, 15% more damage from cloak and dagger, 10% more damage from Cruel Vengeance, 20% more damage on Sin attacks from Heartseeker, 10% more damage from combat expertise, thrown in Blade Tempo which increased damage by a whopping 30% for 15s.. anyhow I could go on and on. I'm looking at the attacks for Sin and they do comparable damage to other rogue attacks, yet the damage output I get in this spec, which IMO should be ridiculously OP, is pathetic.

The only conclusion I can come to is that the damage buffs from Assassin and Blade Dancer are not stacking, yet there is no indication of this in the tooltips.

Am I totally off base here or is anyone else noticing this? If I'm off base, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.
