This would be more of a PvE end game spec.

Though you could switch around Heavy Stock / Brutal Impact.

Thanks for the input, reason why I will try to play this in PvP is because the limitations to one build, sucks until we can have the ability to save 2 builds or so. I don't want to lose tanking abilities.

You can always respec though it cost a lot after a few times.

Power Armor and Static Shield are going to be big for end game PvE. Thats a ton of damage reduction there.

Why not Soldier's Endurance (2% more endurance) instead of heavy stock or brutal impact? Shouldn't we be focusing on survivability rather than damage? I think you have enough aggro generating ability in that spec without heavy stock or brutal impact.

Last I knew people were estimating that a Vanguard at level cap and geared up has an endurance in the neighborhood of 1400. Two percent of that is 28, which translates to 280 extra hit points. That's a pretty piddling amount of survivability for an investment of two talent points. I'd rather have some additional damage on one of my high damage abilities, both for keeping aggro and for ending the fight faster.
