Hey, guys. I haven't played in a few months. Is the 31/0/10 build still viable, or has it been nerfed? I'm not up on the metagame at all. Thanks for the help.

Completely viable. At least for PvE. Many have shifted to a more hybridized form of the build for PvP.

I can list some PvP specs if that was the basis for the question otherwise I recommend the build for any PvE content.

I too would like to know what a good PvE leveling spec would be. Of course mixed with some PvP for face melting fun.

Also my main is a sage healer and I am currently having him set up to be bio chem, for quick instant pocket heal and power/wil buffs. what do you all recommend for a shadow for crafting?

Thanks!

I think the best PvE leveling spec was 31/0/10 - My personal preference based on playstyle which eventually allows you to become practically unkillable.

If I could have changed one thing I would have taken +willpower over + endurance gear. So my recommendation is to spec like a tank with tanking talents but to Gear for DPS with as much +Willpower and + Power as you can find. Don't completely neglect your tanking stats (Defense/shield/absorb) just don;t fous as much on Endurance as you would on Willpower when you are making gear choices.

Using Theran and having Tanking cooldowns and skills really makes you formidable and the added DPS reduces the time it takes to kill everything (which was the only downside to leveling as a tank)

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I did mean for PVP. Thanks, I appreciate the help.

Ok before I post any specs what eactly are you looking for in your PvP playstyle? Will you be looking to be more tanky or more DPS? Will you be gearing for tank or gearing for DPS?

This goes for KC mainly. There are a few different routes you can take depending what you hope to achieve. Regardless it's going to require gear and playing the style to master but it's important to nail down the playstyle so the spec and gear follow accordingly.

EX: Defend Healers and DPS and shut down enemy offensive DPS? Reliable self heals and ok burst.
EX: Burn down opposing healers, excel at burst and mobility and apply offensive CC to take out multiple targets.

That's difficult to say because ownership of the guide was transferred to me roughly right after 1.2 went live. Much of the changes are for POST 1.2 however.

Not too much has been done to the Shadow however 1.3 will see another Update to this.

Is there something that's not consistent? It's easy for me to accidentally gloss over something so if you DO find something that's incorrect please post and I will correct. 1 Editor is not enough for all this haha.
