Given the amount of interest in the thread - I say derail away. Maybe the derailment will draw a few additional people here to share their thoughts on the original topic as wellWell, sorry for the slight bump in the road lads, I wasn't aiming for a derail there. I don't actually care for the combo much myself as it's generally, as you mention, pretty selfish as far as who benefits. That does not stop it from being a perennial contender in the optimized Warlock voting, which is why I mentioned it.
I would much rather talk about optimizing for control. For urban and intrigue based campaigns the infiltrator/control build is almost too nice to pass on, but that might be my personal tastes peeping through.
