Here are some things I've picked up while searching the forums. Please tell me if these are more or less true or false or if a patch has changed anything.
-Flicker's elemental chance is a percent of whatever percent chance your gun is. Even so, it's still the "best of the bad" skills to invest in to reach Ruin. (???)
-The damage from Helios, Blight phoenix and backdraft becomes negligent late game but backdraft and Blight Phoenix can stagger enemies with just a single point. (???)
-Cloud Kill has a stagger effect (???)
Also, does sub-sequence reset the duration of phaselock?
Is this good for a damage build with slight emphasis on healing? http://www.bl2skills.com/siren.html#550501505054050100005511511511 --- GT: gethtones

-Flicker's elemental chance is exactly as you describe. 5/5 Flicker gives +30% chance, so if you have a weapon that is normally a 10% chance of setting someone on fire, investing in Flicker makes it 13%. For "best of the bad", it probably is, unless you have a COM that boosts something else.
-Second statement is correct. Blight Phoenix might be worth one point for the reason you describe, just make sure you watch out for barrels.
-Cloud Kill is completely worthless and not worth speccing into at any time.
-Sub-Sequence does NOT reset the duration of Phaselock.
-For the build, if you're running Subsequence, you'll want Suspension. If you're running Suspension, you may consider investing points into Elated. Also, make Flicker 3/5, take points out of Helios, Backdraft, and Cloud Kill, and max out Immolate. --- 2007 - 2008 NHL Saturday Picks Champion

I think I'll forget about subsequence all together then. --- GT: gethtones

Take the 5 points from Sub-sequence and put into Quicken, no need to go any further down that tree. --- GT....Clemson1Tigers......Pawn - Claire/Strider Lvl 50

It's really good with Ruin and Convergence. --- http://img356.imageshack.us/img356/8325/scrunchface2copyfx0.png http://steamsigmaker.de/new/AlleRacing.png
