Tank Assassin Stat Gearing + Augmenting

Okay, I'm currently in black hole/campaign, with one rakata piece remaining: the offhand (augmented).

I have 13 fortitude augments and one defense augment.

With that being said, here's my stats (breakdown of the 3 tanking stats and HP)
---

HP: 27188
(buffed, as I have the bounty hunter buff on my toon)

Defense Chance: 27.34% (385 rating)

Shield Chance: 65.38% with dark ward (561 rating)

Absorption: 50.16% (330 rating)

---

I traded all of my accuracy out for shield, that's why it's so high. I can't trade the shield with anything else that would be useful, besides accuracy, which I don't want.

HP, Defense, and Absorb, though..... With my shield so high I think absorb is a better choice than defense, since it becomes more viable as shield goes up....

----

My raid group and I burn through HM EC very quickly every week, so for this patch it seems fine. But I'm always looking at better optimizing my stats, so if anyone has any suggestions, just say it.

Since my defence is pretty high now, I was thinking of swapping the on-use defence one for this for the self heals, since it procs on our self heals and would help:

The endurance is good, too.

Should I?

I can be wrong here, But doesnt shield chance caps at 50%? That would mean you can trade some for other stats.

Im not sure though, so perhaps someone can confirm wether it is wrong or not.

Shield chance caps at +50%. So if you got 50% just from rating alone, then you wouldn't be able to get any higher. You get a certain amount just from equipping a shield generator+ from talents, so once you get ANOTHER +50% you're capped.
Not the case with me yet! :P

Tanking stats go like this, too (how they made mods/enhancements):
-Shield or Accuracy
-Defense or Absorb

So I traded all of my accuracy for shield, I can't trade it to anything else besides accuracy. So it's staying shield.

Defense and absorb, though... not sure how much I should put in each, and if I should take some hp augments out and replace with either defense or absorb augments.. not sure.

I put defense augments instead in my gear.
So almost 800k less hp, but with exotech stim im 30% defense.
Relic's.
Useefense / Proc: Absorb

26540 hp
40.25% mitation.
defense 30%
Shield 45% (No ward)
Absorb 50%

Reason is I parsed EC mox results, And most dmg cant be shielded. But all attacks can be dodged, so I added more defense.
But Im not 100% sure of this, So I tried balance it a bit anyway.
You know if this is the case?
Also DR is nasty at 400-500 defense, maybe increasing hp is better?

thats a decent idea, but personally i'd rather have the extra defensive cooldown when needed

I did something similar but went almost full defense and some absorb augments.
Relics:
Use: Campaign Relic of Imperiling Serenity (+ defense on use)
Stats: Battlemaster's Relic of Imperiling Serenity (+103 defense, augmented so +121 defense)

Completely unbuffed from memory I have about:

22103 Health (24k buffed with stim)
38% Mitigation (Just under 6k armor)
31% defense (Over 500 rating, something like 525?)
40% Shield (55% with Dark Ward)
52% Absorb

I just got the black hole chest piece so I gained some defense and lost absorb making my stat balance wonky right now.

They way I understand it, I'm at the caps for Absorb (50%) and Defense (30%) already based on this forum post for tanking.

I'm waiting until I've bought all the black hole gear to re-augment as the stats balance is definitely going to change, but it might be time to go for HP? I'm not sure. Can anyone confirm if those are truly the caps?

Nope, you're not at the cap for absorb/defense.

Once you look at your rating and it says that you got:
1. +30% defense from JUST RATING
2. +50% absorb from JUST RATING
You'll then be at the cap, it won't go higher than that.

We start out at a base of 17% defense or so, so once you get +30% ADDITIONAL defense (47% defense) you'll be at the cap. You can't currently get that much. Once you do, you'll notice, since if you had that much defense you'd see +30% defense from rating, and it wouldn't go higher no matter how much more points you put into it.

We start out at a base of 24% absorb or so, so once you get +50% ADDITIONAL absorb (74% absorb), you'll be at the cap. You can't currently get that much, yada yada yada. :P

Anyway, I swapped out some things, but since I'm not tank spec right now I don't remember the exact percents and ratings of everything.

Now I'm about:
26850 HP
30.5% defense

Other ones are the same:
Shield Chance: 65.38% with dark ward (561 rating)
Absorption: 50.16% (330 rating)

HPS 23142 (2041 end)
DR 40
DC 28.60 (442 def)
SC 42.17 => 62.17 with dark ward (464 shield)

Well, I would not be so sure that they have full BH/campaign or higher.

Some of the numbers given here are quite low, and the posts are kind of old.

I would expect more geared tanks at this time to be somewhere around:
30% defense
45% shield chance, that is 65% with dark ward
60% absorption
or even a bit higher on all 3
