Powertech leveling spec?

Hi folks,

Given that we're going to spend the next week (or 10) leveling before we get to end game I thought I'd get some opinions on the best spec for leveling a PT. The DPS tree makes sense since leveling is all about killing stuff before it kills you and you aren't really in your role as a tank quite yet but what does everyone else think?

You do enough dps to level in tank spec.

Honestly, one of the beauties of SWTOR is that any spec is viable for leveling. Even if you feel like your solo DPS is lackluster (although it usually isn't, particularly not in this case), the Companions allow you to supplement and complement your chosen skillset.

I had the same questions you did but after playing the beta I feel all three trees are fine for leveling.

From there on you decide if you want to go deeper into pyrotech or you rather go and pick up the rest from the adv prototype up until charged gauntlets and hydraulic overides.

Gives you relatively quick access to many dots, decent extra crit, ranged and melee options and decent damage aswell.

At 50 it will also be a nice allround pvp template if you decide to pick the charged gauntlets and hydraulic overrides, being able to get out of snares quite often, with a mix of melee and ranged skills and really nice damage from 90% armor penetrating rail shots and a frequent amount of procs for free railshots and rocket punch.
