Just go skank tank PT, like everyone else. They're tough as hell.

And know what this shows. Tanking is completely BROKEN if the answer is "sank tank'. Fun fact. It can't even skank as well as the other two tanking classes.

DPS is half of Commando/Merc, Shadow/Assin (unless starphase lying), Shields only do 25% of damage (down form 75% from ‎Jedi Knight, ‎Jedi Consular, ‎Sith Warrior, ‎Sith Inquisitor, Commando, Mercs). I haven't seen shield's do any damage reduction especially in PvP.

Number One major problem in PVP is back to back to back Stuns. The leap or Storm ability only work 65% of the time. The resolve bar DOES NOT GO HIGHER THAN 75%! Harpoon only work 55% of the time in Warzone
You bring a PT or VG into ranked PvP you number 1 target and dead with 5 to 10 seconds of the match starting.
Vanguard takes more than 90 seconds for the power cell to generate, PT 90 seconds for cool down, which take Jedi Knight, ‎Jedi Consular, ‎Sith Warrior, ‎Sith Inquisitor <5 seconds.
One stun is 4 Seconds and others stun is 2 seconds (nothing more than glorified interrupts) While other melee toons have up to 3 stuns for 8 seconds.

Why Vanguards and PTs have range weapons and they are melee class?

You do this game a great disservice, and discredit by playing favoritism, nerfing and the lack of abilities.


Blame the smallest percentage of the player community. PVP players are like seagulls, they fly in, crap all over everything......then leave. The developers continue to cater to this small faction.

In PvE Vanguard/Powertech is totally fine, in both Tank & DPS role.
In PvP you'll die anyway in the most ideal case it will be 50/50 kills/deaths. Thus PvP's toxic, and if you got bad nerves better just don't play it. Especially now, when there're lots of ways to earn unassembleds.

I'm sorry, did I offend you? Clearly, you池e afraid that SWTOR might give another class little bit more DPS upset your Sith Assassin. Make this clear to you! I play all the classes in all operations Flashpoints Chapters, rank/unranked WZ, dailies and weeklies. 75% of us that truly play the game, have played or/are playing all the classes, and spend the most money!

I知 not talking about make one better than rest of them. I知 saying of all the classes this is the weakest one. Last 6 years I heard nothing but the Jedi whine or the Sith cry about Vanguard's or PT/s can out DPS or OP over their Sith Assassin or the Jedi Shadow.

If anything most of the sith and jedi look at a PT/VG and simply go "oh how cute. Die now."

Ragequitter, that leaves OP after 1-st wipe is the weakest & most useless class in the game. Any other 1, including VG/PT is in a huge break stronger than decliner.

Especially since Tanks & Healers're in a short supply, and VG can Tank or DwT (and've 30m attack while tanking), that all makes VG definitely worth to play & far from weak.

What I am afraid of are the PVP crybabies. Every MMO has them, and developers cater to them. My motto is this.."it''s not the spec, it's what between the ears". If your character stinks, guess who's fault it is....look in the mirror.

There are so few abilities that fire from 30m, may as well be shooting a squirt gun as you're costing yourself most of the DPS.

Have at 30m:
Hammer shot
Off of Pyro you can spam Incendiary Missile
On AP you can use Thermal Detonator
Oh and explosive fuel only gives 20 meters when taking the legendary skill pressure overrides.

So 3 abilities, two of them on different disciplines that can be used at 30m. Really, lot of damage you're going to do there champ
