@13 - You got it. It's because you need to wait for more energy to regenerate. A stun lock needs to be completely contained and you can't let your opponent get even one second where they're not stunned or they can ruin all your plans. Thus, you can't wait for the energy you'd need to be able to get off a SS right after the Backstab or you'll be waiting too long and your opponent will come out of the stun. It's literally a split second too late. Thus, you add in a gouge, then wait while your energy regens. You can actually wait until the gouge has almost worn off to hit the SS/KS in there. The downside is that it *does* actually give your opponent an opportunity out of stunlock anyway in there as the SS will break the Gouge and they'll have a split second before the KS connects during which they can escape your lock.Thus, the lock posted isn't a "true" stunlock as a true stunlock doesn't allow your opponent to get out of the lock *ever*. (aside from trinketing/racialing out of it) You'd be surprised what a good PvP player can do if you give him that split second opening where they're not stunned. :)Most of the other locks up there are good. I really like Hemo for a stunlock build for beginners, it's very forgiving and generates CPs like mad. Plus, it's gear requirements are more forgiving than a lot of other builds.
