Just got back in game after being away for months . I just respec'd from Pyro back to Shield for fun (I do casual PvP (guard/disruption) as well, rank 23)
Here is my build, please advise: Is there anything tragically missing? I what should I do for levels 41-50?
Note my gear (mostly Raptor Orange PvP)* is currently set up for crit (19% base and 59% multiplier), as follows:
Power 94
Accuracy 92
Alacrity 0
Crit 116
Surge 44
Defense 21
Shield 0
Absorb 17
How much of the crit should I switch out to Defense/Shield/Absorb? Any other advice? I do good damage PvE but Elites are kind of rough solo with Mako. Need more defense? What numbers should I be shooting for above?
Many thanks!

this is what your tree should look like in shield tech @ lvl 50

dont worry so much about crit go more for defensive stats ideal 50% shield 50 absorb 16 defense you wont see number like this till you get some endgame gear

what he said more or less, i have a skill tree on my vanguard that is 98% matched to what he showed you and trust me it works very well, don't feel underpowered when you get recruit gear at level 50, all classes absolutely suck until they get full battlemaster, then it's alot easier from there.
