    Very nice Build!

    this is how it looks for non-human in a calculator.

    how is this a whisperknife build?
    you don’t use any of it’s feats, and while you put points into some of it’s powers you don’t use any of them. I’m not saying whether it’s good or bad, but you could use this build with a master infiltrator too, and you’d just need to shift a few power points from powers you don’t use to different powers you wouldn’t use.

    Almost every classes spec can be something else using slightly “different” powers, I made this Whisperknife build simply put for people to use some freedoms, when I look at a guide I never spec exactly the same, Whisperknife simply implies its clearly a PVE spec. Everyone’s play style is different, have a friend who used this guide and uses a ton of different points then me, Master Infiltrator is PVP only in my opinion, unless you move certain powers in what your saying and use it for PVE. You could shift them and use this build as a Master Infiltrator to so your not wrong but, I don’t expect people to build this to my EXACT point either(obviously some will), So it’s left open for their own PVE skills. So that’s why it’s a “Whisperknife” build. If I’d have made this Master Infiltrator people would have been commenting that I’m not using any stealth points or that the skills look like they could be used in PVP.

      It is not a whisperknife build, the powers used aren’t related to the paragon path. Disheartening strike is cornerstone for every whisperknife build. It is more a generic TR build instead.
