I still use it. Though I've been trying to find something better I been found wanting. Hard to argue against the stat points it gives you all the time.

I started out at level 55 with two Elite War Hero (Shrouded Crusader) relics. With those relics equipped, I currently have 45.98% shield chance. Recently I have been experimenting with Underworld Relic of the Shrouded Crusader (265 Shield/Absorb for 30 seconds) and a Partisan Relic of Shield Amplification (shielding grants 410 absorb for 6 seconds). The Partisan relic will soon be replaced by a second Underworld relic, but I am liking the results so far. I have not done any number crunching, but the Shield Amplification/Shrouded Crusader relic combo seems to be very useful in operations.

Thank you Cae. I've been trying to find a good guide to the differences in 2.0 (haven't played since right after 1.6).
This needs be sticky'd but I'm bookmarking it for when I go back to VG just in case.
Thanks again.

Excellent write-up! Sticky please! (although Vanguard forum would be better than the shared one).

Cae
I have also got the same warhero relic in my Bounty Hunter PT currently. My sin Assassin Tank is using another PvP war hero relic... cant remember the name, currently at work. It pops like the Pve Relic you were talking about and increases defence by 400 odd. Sorry i havnt got the actual numbers.

I have found that both can pop seperately, the absorb and the defence within the 20 seconds or at the same time for the 6 second limit. and neither need to be pressed. I have found this to be very effective as a tanking relic.

P.s. Both have cannot work with a similar relic written into their description. but as 1 is absorb and the other is defence it works. I have found this very effective. would love your opinion

Essentially: Less HP (only take whatever End you get from End heavy armourings, unlettered mods/enhancements and datacrons, you can alo trade mit for end on 72 level by using Veracity ear/imp but at 75 KD seem better), Les Def (770ish with stim), more Shd (around 1100) and more abs (700ish). For detailed stats look at the OP, Dip's thread and KB' thread and essentially choose one as they are all very close and will not provide huge variance when it comes to mean mitigation.
