My spec: Tank Shadow (Kinetic Combat)

1. How do you think your Shadow spec is perceived by other classes? Have you ever seen/heard the Dane Cook skit on "Karen"? In case you haven't, here's a link. That's what I think the Shadow tank is perceived as by the rest of the SWTOR community.

2. How do you perceive your own spec? The first time I played after 1.3 I felt like a plush toy. It's definitely been an adjustment and despite the reductions, I think it's actually made me a better tank. I look to guard a lot more than I used to, really try to just play a support role and roll my guard depending on who's getting wailed on at the moment (with healers getting top priority of course). Do I do a lot of DPS? No. But can I rack up 100-200k in WZ protection and maybe get a few objective points too? Definitely. Finally, I haven't raided a whole lot so I can't speak to how the changes have affected PVE.
