This above spec is a example of a classic infil spec and it features capped stealth/envenom at rr5 assuming capped +skill from a SC set.

Though there are alternatives to this "classic" spec: (Will include some specs which are only viable at higher RRs (rr6-7+).

One of them is the "mercfil template" which instead of depending upon PA chain it tries to promote damage-over-time by speccing 50 DW. A classic mercfil template looks like this:
33 Stealth
1 Critical Strike
1 Slash
50 Thrust
50 Dual Wield
34 Envenom

(I do NOT promote this above spec due to it's lack of utility although I added it to get a sense of completeness.)

My starting spec on my own infiltrator was a slight modification to the above spec which I dubbed the "tankfil" template.
34 Stealth
21 Critical Strike
1 Slash
50 Thrust
50 Dual Wield
25 Envenom

(You lose 9 envenom points in the exchange for getting PA which still is capable of doing decent damage)

NOTE: PA cap with this spec mentioned above and rr6 + 3.5 speed guarded rapier gave me a damage cap of 591 damage which isn't bad at all considering I switched it for 9 envenom spec points.

Pros:
Excellent damage-over-time making you a hard person to kill in a 1v1 battle
21 CS makes you still able to perform decent damage with your PA but still maintaining damage over time.
Dual Shadows (which is the level 50 Dual Wield style) drains a greatly lower amount of endurance then the Garrote/Achilles Heel combo does.

Cons:
If you face a buffed BD you are royally screwed due to not having any kind of way to stun them.
You wont get lifebane nor the best str/con debuff even if you ding rr10 (without respeccing that would be).


Now to delve some into the critfil spec:

(Use my levelling spec until you reach RR6 and then respec to this one if you are looking for greater efficency and still want to stab stuff).

Assuming RR6 for the template gives you a possibility to spec:
34 Stealth
50 Critical Strike
1 Slash
50 Thrust
11 Dual Wield
31 Envenom (Lifebane is and will always be overrated).


There is also a "ultimate" version of this spec which is designed for a RR10 infiltrator:
30 stealth
50 Critical Strike
1 Slash
50 Thrust
21 Dual Wield
30 Envenom

Pros:
Totally awesome PA cap which allows you to one-shot casters with a decent crit.
The best spec there is for slaying Bonedancers.
4 style evade chain to pull off after Dragonfang.

Cons:
If you get popped without landing PA against another stealther you are in deep shit (Note: Vanish doesn't count in this case).
The end drain of the Garrote/Achilles Heel chain is huge compared to using Dual Shadows and the damage over time is lower compared to Dual Shadows anyway.


And then my own current spec which was achieved through some slight autotraining (level 40-48).

(Some infils claim that poisons are what make the assassin but I personally don't agree with that).

31 stealth
50 thrust
50 Dual Wield
34 Critical Strike
13 Envenom
1 Slash.

Pros:
The spec combines the power of PA-CD AND Dual Shadows which allows you to both be able to deal really good damage with your PA (I currently got 717 damage cap on my PA using a 3.5 speed Guarded Rapier and being rr7 with capped SC set).
Everything else has been typed before while describing the other specs.

Cons:
You have to be rr7 for this to be even distantly viable in the first place J
Your DoT poison isn't even worth using.
You will be more or less restricted to using disease/str|con debuff while playing this spec.

 

Even though I haven't promoted slash as a final damage type to choose I will still include a possible level 50 spec if you feel drawn towards slash weapons. (Sidi lightsabres etc)

Assuming the spec is without autoing and strives after RR5 I would recommend:
35 Stealth
44 Critical Strike
35 Envenom
50 Slash
18 Dual Wield

Pros:
You will be able to do shish-kebab out of Shadowblades (literally)
You can wield lightsabres (And as we all know that within DAoC looks > everything).

Cons:
In exchange nightshades will be making shish-kebab out of you.
You wont have the infamous 'DF4WIN' button anymore.
Lower weaponskill if you compare against the possible weaponskill while wielding thrust weapons instead of slashers.
