Greetings fellow Swashies!

I'm back after an extremely long time away for RL and am now trying to figure out how the AAs have changed in my absence.  The last time I was logged on was back in RoK.  I left off with 140 AAs but am not familiar with the new AAs or how any of the previous ones were changed.

If anyone would be so kind to suggest some good AA builds, I would greatly appreciate it.  I'll be leveling/grouping over the next bit while leveling from 80 to 90, so that is the first build I'll be seeking.

If you're feeling really generous and would like to also add a raiding, if much different than a grouping build, for later down the road, that would be appreciated as well.

Also, I noticed that all my character traits were refunded.  The AGI ones are no brainers, but does the Swash class get more bang for the buck out of the increased health, power or power regen?

I thank you in advance for your time and feedback!

My recommended AA spec

OK so the above spec is the minimum that I would recommend for dps for raiding.

My group spec was slightly different with only 6 points in str and the rest of the points in Stamina for health, but now that I am raiding I went down strength to get traumatic swipe for the extra CA and the potency debuff.

In swashbuckler, the poison line is only for the endline ability. The rest of the AAs in that line are a complete joke. The reach line and endline is staple for our class as you might remember from T8. The style line is significant thanks to the improvements it gives our temp buffs. Any other erroneous points spent are to get the SF line that goes along the bottom and requires at least 70 points spent to access. In the SF line, hate xfer is a waste, don't get it. Most tanks that don't completely suck do fine with the tools they have and the hate xfer we have without that. The base damage improvements on our rear attacks are a no brainer, get them all. The oher SF AA I have points in is slice and dice for the mitigation debuff and I also got flash of power toward the end.

In shadows, dps dps dps.

Since he didn't mention this, always, on any character, go for max HP. Max power's only use in the game would be a manaburning wizzy, power regen is too small to be of consequence and you'll regenerate most power via procs or spells other players cast, health regen is laughable, but straight increase health has a very good chance of stopping some deaths.

I think everyone has the same idea to be perfectly honest.
