Iím playing deception at the moment in ranked and regs. Iím thinking of giving a whirl to a full tank spec with dps gear and a shield. Is it currently viable for regs and ranked in terms of damage and survivability ?

nope. That setup died with 2.0.

it's quite viable. the setup may have been nerfed with 2.0 but u can definitely pull your weight in regular wz and reg arenas. for ranked u may be vulnerable to tank-tunneling from what i've heard. some people i know use a hybrid with infiltration tactics and lowslash in combat technique with a shield and 2-3 pieces of tanking gear quite successfully. i personally prefer the full-tank-spec with slow-time/wither using 2piece survivor setboni and 2piece stalker.

Full tanking gear for ranked, or else you will die just that much faster
