    I've been testing damage and weighing my options but, until I get more skill points, I want to be more effective with my spec. So this is what I have so far:
    Blade Spin Blade
    Shadow Stomp
    Shadow Clone
    Malice
    Shuriken flight
    Fatal Blow
    Black Moonlight


    Haven't spec'd, need opinions on:
    Beheading the dead
    Boss Slaughter (I generally don't spec Boss Slaughter even for gap closer just because I feel it's too risky, but that's just for my playstyle.)
    Fox Claw
    Ghost Greeting
    Ankle Cutter
    Heart Aiming
    Floor Sweep
    Crescent slash
    Autoattacks
    Suicide fall
    Ground Thrust


    I just want to see what other people's experiences have been with the bottom half. Anything I should check out?

    I'd take suicide fall 100% of the time.

    Do you mean you have not learned this skills at all (even level 1) or just not learned the Absolute level of them ?

    Absolute level of the bottom skills, I'm trying to determine what my next choice is since eventually, I plan to max out everything (long term goal)

    The only reason I made the note about boss slaughter was because the main appeal appears to be the range.

    The range doesn't change for the absolute version of Boss Slaughter, unfortunately.

    Before anyone can answer this, how much SP do you have, how much AP, what weapons are you using, and for pvp or pve?

    Bladespin, Malice, Stomp. After rereading your post: go for suicide fall, ankle cutter, and beheading in that order.

    My suggestion would be something similar to this:

    I dont know if you already got your absolute skills. But I recommend Beheading over Suicide fall. Does more Damage and lowers the cooldown of the preceding skill [Beheading III]
    I made a priority list on the ninja guide if you havent seen it. 2.3.3

    What is the appeal behind Absolute Suicide Fall? It seems the only thing it does is double the damage, but even that is not that big of a deal compared to the damage increase on other skills. Does it also increase the range?

    The more absolutes you have the more that little damage counts. alone they may not do much but add them all together and the damage becomes significant especially for combo classes.

    I would go as far as saying, the x2 damage on suicide fall, means you have another chance at grabbing the person, just like a float or so

    Ew take beheading first nothing is sexier than finishing a combo with beheading the dead or using it to catch rangers. It also damages and do debuffs through shields since it attacks from underneath which is pretty cool. Good way to kill a blocking war when his hp low LOL. Why would you recommend single target skills over aoes .You cant even really use ankle cutter in a group fight whats the point in not leaving it for last of last then its worth ranking.

    That meme size. But ya Idk if it still works the same way cause its been awhile but before you could apply debuffs through shields with beheading and deal a bit of damage as well.
