Which would it be and how would you buff it?

For me it would be cover pulse not needing cover to activate... maybe just a tad longer root with it too.

if I could only buff one?
Dodge needs to actually dodge everything. As it stands, Tech, Force, and even some physical get through (I've been hit by 3k hits from knights through dodge. Not sure what skills they are)

3 seconds is far too short for a skill that only blocks some things. It needs to either be 6 seconds, or remain 3 and dodge everything.

QFT. Dodge is so-so as is (nothing feels better than hitting dodge right before a rival sniper tries to blast your face off) but it doesn't feel like a proper defensive cooldown because I can still go splat really fast while it's popped.

Defence Screen needs to absorb at least twice or triple its current amount. Compared to the Sage's shield, which has a much shorter CD and absorbs more, it fails as a defensive ability.

Dodge needs to dodge everything.

Any ability that requires you to be in cover should automatically put you in cover.

Dot crits heal us would be nice.

For what it's worth, Defense Screen is free and does not use a GCD. As a Saboteur, I get great use out of it with my +30% and dual use via Sabotage

We'd need a real defensive ability before we can get a buff to one.

Make Cover a 20 percent defense chance against both melee and ranged, instead of just ranged like it is now.

Make Hunker Down a 5 percent increase to armor mitigation.

Not a bad idea...since we have no heals, force speed, combat stealth (at least short one like Marauder would be nice) to keep us alive. GS relies on group heals too much...it's usually a sad sad day if we get caugh in an open field trying to get to an objective...get DoT'd then hit a couple of times....and people just run away because they know we'll die from the DoT haha.

We're the softest glass canons in the game with the least amount of survivablity...and our only true single target DPS requires us to be rooted...good times
