I'm new to the SK business and plan to play aroud this spellset

[MySpells]
Gem1=Charge for Power
Gem2=Terror of Jelvalak
Gem3=Burst of Spite
Gem4=Dire Constriction
Gem5=Plague of the Karanas
Gem6=Blood of Laarthik
Gem7=Bond of Laarthik
Gem8=Dire Implication
Gem9=Touch of Tharoff
Gem10=Laarthik's Bite
Gem11=Voice of Thule
Gem12=Malarian Skin

like this: lock aggro with terror,encroaching darkness aa and charge; dot them up; stay alive and dps some with taps and have burst of spite for adds. Now my questions are: Are there any spells not worth casting on this bar that could be replaced by the spear ? Does Burst of spite break mez ?

Not breaking mezz. I would say the spell setup depends on who you group with. I personally keep atleast 2 AE hate spells/AAs up because they have long refresh time and short range.

I have a TDS geared 100 SK, and recently (with the free Heroic promotion) made a new 85 on a different server. Here is what I use, hopefully you find it useful.

Buffs:
Drape of Korafax
Gift of Lanys
Shroud of the Blightborn
Mindshear Horror
Venril's Covenant
Voice of Thule
Malarian Skin
Steely Stance

DPS:
Charge for Power
Festering Darkness (little overkill, but great threat)
Bond of Laarthik
Blood of Laarthik
Plague of the Karanas
Laarthik's Bite

Heals:
Touch of Tharoff for taps (usually around 70% health as required)
Leech Touch (OMG, why am I at 20%, silly Healer Merc)

Gems:
Steely Stance
Malarian Skin
Voice of Thule
Charge for Power
Touch of Tharoff
Bond of Laarthik
Blood of Laarthik
Plague of the Karanas
Laarthik's Bite
Festering Darkness
Burst of Spite
Unsavory Sacrifice / Misc

Footnote: Burst, Explosion of Hated, etc. Don't break Mez. They don't deal any damage, just AoE +hate

I have found that in most cases the DOTs are not really worth the casting time.

I usually use DD's and Taps...Tap as much as possible to reduce healing needs.

Note this from a 105 SK without EOK, but it might give you some ideas.
