Find my BH Powertech Tanking Guide here, hope it's helpful to those of you just starting out as a BH tank.

Anyone who flags this for a sticky has my heartfelt thanks, as it stops me having to bump it at all

Edit: Updated to version 2!

Good stuff, I didnt get in today so I can have a good read of this instead. Recently decided to go PT instead of a Jugg. Hopefully was a good choice...

Oh..
Thanks man!
Quick question: Since Puncture is a filler, are there any talents in Shield tree one might consider dumping to get Rail Loaders - just to get more effect out of Rail Shot?
(Would it even be worth it, for 6% bonus dmg?)
It's better to die alone, than to live among enemies.

The 6% bonus damage isn't worth it when compared to the talents we'd need to drop to pick it up.

Thanks for the kind words all.

Love the guide. Just an FYI, there's now a Powertech sub-forum in addition to the regular BH Forum.
