There's a trick to using stealth to gain Overkill while still staying up with the rest of the group: don't stay in stealth all the time. After the tank pulls simply break stealth and run in. If groups are being destroyed as fast as you claim you won't even need the full 20 seconds of Overkill, so wasting about ~5 seconds on travel time won't hurt you.What I actually do, however, is run in after the tank pulls (at that point you're not actually in combat) and then I stealth when I get within about 10-15 yards of the mobs, then I break out with a FoK. This requires a bit of finesse because you're trying to stealth before you get into combat via proximity. If you get to close, even if you haven't struck a mob, you'll enter combat, so your goal is to get as close to that imaginary line as possible, then stealth right before you hit it. It's kind of advanced, but it's well worth it when you're running in a group with some other not-so-great dps and you want to milk every second of Overkill just to get the mobs to die a bit faster.That above is actually just my panic move to get an overkill when the tank pulls unexpectedly. Most of the time I simply stay ahead of the group to compensate for the extra time it will take me to reach the mobs in stealth. You can be 10 yards away from a mob pack because of stealth so most of the time you should be one of the first to put damage on those mobs after the tank.
