Previously I used to run around 50% Shield Chance and around 48% Absorb, this still the basis for gearing as a tank?

Not near my computer for exact numbers. But i go with lethal b mods now (going from 2k to 3k on defense nets you 4% def rating, yay )

So i know im right around 2k defense, with the rest split shield and absorb, as you suggest very slighly preferencing shield.

2079 Defence, 1617 Absorb and 2079 Shield, reached through 7 Absorb and 3 Shield Enhancement/Earpiece/Implant, 14 Shield Augments, and Lethal B mods as suggested above of course

Having looked at my toon in his full tank gear tonight - i run shield/absorb closer together than the othed poster. Both my shield and absorb were in the 1750-1800 range, slightly favoring shield.

General rule for guardian is def > shield > absorb
