When I last checked 2 months ago, this relic was broken and gave 20 seconds on click instead of 30.

Has this been fixed yet?

Nope. Campaign and Dread Guard Defense use relics have a 20 second duration, compared to the 30 second duration of every other use relic (including the Tionese-Rakata grade Defense relics and every single one of the shield/absorb relics).

i would advise against using these types of relics. its better to go with the PvP ones.

That's not even remotely true any more. With the general design of burst intensive and true tank swap fights with the newer content, the use relics either break even or are actually substantially better than the passive relics, depending on your personal preference, because, when properly used, you're able to leverage the rating for when you need it as opposed to having it up constantly. If you want some math, I direct you to this post wherein I actually get in to it. Suffice it to say that if you're not an idiot, you can get a lot more out of the use relics than the passive relics.

Tanking involves covering situationals not just constants. PvP ones are great for mean mitigation, but clicky relics give you more 'on demand' mitigation when you need it.

IE when fighting Toth and Zorn:
-113 Defense relic is useless while you are on Zorn.
- 315 Defense every other time you are on Toth is great.

Same holds true for SC/FB, Kephess, Writhing Horror and Fabricator. Depending on your strat it can also hold true for many other fights including Vorgath (thats now all of EC HM), Gharj and Annihilation Droid. I'm not sure about TFB HM yet, we're still working on it.

The dread guard shield/absorb relic is also only 20 second duration.

Wow, looks like you are right. I really hope this didn't get missed with all the new faces on the development team.

Wish they could comment on the issue again.
