Thanks for guide.

Found small mistake. Bioanalysis isnt crafting skill, biochem is.

Your Powertech rotation isn't translated; it's using the Vanguard terminology.

Thanks for this guide.....very helpful to better understand my role as a power-tech tank Are you guys aware of any articles that help you understand more of the ops interface while in real time mode? For example, on how to be able to monitor aggro, threat, and overall stats of the team via the GUI, besides just using your eyes. Not sure if there are icons, bars, or even colors that help identify what is happening. Some battles can get messy.

Awesome thanks! I corrected it in the guide.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but the strength to do what is right in the face of it.

Oops! I corrected it just now. Please let me know if you see anything else like that.

I just added a section about Threat to the guide. I'm not sure it's what your looking for but I do think it will help you understand how it works more.

I wouldn't suggest those specs...both look very bad.
The Empire is not evil, and the Republic is not good...it is all a matter of opinion.

Actually , I agree with you the talent builds I made arn't there. I'll upload them again I guess something changed because those builds have 8 points left over and arn't even filled out correctly. Thank for bringing that to my attention.

Why does this have a sticky, its not updated for 2.0. It seems to be "ok" for pre 2.0 but not now.

One huge point that was glossed over is the fact that Energy Blast is one of your best defensive abilities. Threat generation doesn`t even factor into taking it or not, just the fact that you get a 25% increase to your shield absorb makes this a must for tanking in PVE. It should be on your bar and on cooldown constantly
