I don't have temple strike yet and I'd really like to see what kind of damage this can do so if anyone could try it out for me I'd greatly appreicate it.
Golden lotus strike
Horns of the ox
blades of steel
Way of the fox
I just need to know if the energy cost is too much or if it doesn't do enough damage to be viable. Oh and I run gloves and feet that are shrouded shing jea and I have zealous on my daggers, so please take this into account.

I don't have to test it to tell you that it will do fantastic damage... every 30 seconds. Relying on Temple Strike (with 25 second recharge and 15 energy cost) as your offhand will limit the rest of your combo.

Well it's more or less for taking out that pesky healer or ele, which more or less get screwed by daze. Also I could add in GPS, but I really want to keep that last spot open for cont of purity. Any suggestions?

You don't have a sustained enchantment to use GLS with. Unless you don't attack, Way of the Fox doesn't last long enough to use GLS more than once, and if you use it as your combo opener (not that you have any choice) with Way of the Fox, you would get more energy when you're already full.
Your combo relies on GLS and Temple Strike - without those, all your other dagger attacks become useless (and, as mentioned above, Temple Strike has a very long recharge). Falling Spider doesn't have any certain knock down, only the conditional one given by Horns of the Ox, and if that condition isn't met your second off hand and second dual attack won't work.
There are better Lead Attacks to use in that combination, there are better enchantments to trigger GLS, there are better ways to deal with energy, there could be a second combo trigger to avoid having to wait for Temple Strike's cooldown (or just something to make it recharge faster), there could be a more reliable way to open your second off hand, etc...

Meh thanks for the post, don't worry about it anymore though, I've fond that twisting is really the key to any spike.
