You need to reach a total of 18,200 Penetration for boss fights in Trials. The U27 change to how Alkosh functioned in conjunction with damage modifiers meant that the uptime of Alkosh's Linebreaker debuff was more critical and had an effect on your weapon traits & Champion Points group by group but as noted Alkosh will still be necessary for Stamina DPS (boss and trash) and depending on whether or not you want to sacrifice a source of penetration, for Magicka groups potentially (boss) despite the U28 changes.

Courtesy of the Tank Club, Alkosh Blue CP allocations for Magicka & Stamina DPS compositions have been introduced.

Note that the Raid Dummy has been updated for Markarth DLC.

Assuming you're running Nirnhoned/Precise Frontbar as Stamina DPS, you should be running 35 Piercing as a non-Necromancer, 18 Piercing as a Necromancer and 2 or 3 as a Nightblade (due to the flanking passive) while parsing on the Raid Dummy.

Assuming you're a Magicka DPS, you should have ZERO points into Spell Erosion for the Raid Dummy.

In optimized groups, DPS classes will run 0 points into Spell Erosion/Piercing.
