Annihilation <-- no brainer

something like this is what I'm going for on my sentinel

that is, this spec:

you have some defensive talents there, but survivability is needed too.

In my experience Annihilation marauders are the only spec viable if you solo pvp.

- Self heals, means you have more surv.
- Moderate Burst
- Low CD on charge
- Low CD on interruption
- You dont have to be on the target to deal dmg since your dotting

- Very hard to play it optimaly. Too much variables and micro management.

My English is bad.

I'd say, depends on your gear level. If you're under 13k health and under 100expertise, I'd highly recommend Rage for beginner PVP. The easy rotation of Charge -> Slow -> Battering -> Smash will net you the easy 4 medals to get commendations to upgrade to cent/champ gear. After that, Annilation hands down.

From level 10 to 20 go 2 points into the carnage talent that lets you generate 2 centering or whatever it's called on empire side. Put the rest in rage and hang out in shi-cho form. The zen shi-cho form 6 strikes that are rage free will carry you through the next 10 levels. At 20 respec to annihilation. At levels 21 and 22 get that same carnage talent for 2 points. All the way to 50 then with annihilation.

Rage is super easy to play and gets some nice numbers, it is also countered very easily.

Anni is one of the most difficult specs to play but also one of the most powerful

annihilation, it's rad

the damage takes a moment to ramp up but when all of your dps is ticking away it meltts people, especially if you pop adrenals/relics. goodbye to anyone you're fighting
