I think thee crits was mainly when it was 50vs lower levels.

I have seen jugs and guardians do some sick aoe damage on my vanguard but never seen it either, then again heavy armor.

Vs my scoundrel I have been hit extremly hard but never 7k.

5k crits yes, but indeed with they have expertise buff and adrenals running.

I guess with a huge gap in expertise its possible but then its a gear difference not anything else.

That you though are able to perform this wich is equal to a stealth opener from an operative or scoundrel is rather interesting.

Still, I personally dont have a problem with it.

Agree, but I'm still waiting for proof.

The video clearly says "Focus Guardian PvP", the tank tree is Defense.

Yep same here. I don't believe it either.

Btw OP, the last video you posted is a video of a Jedi Guardian, but not in the tank spec.

A rage spec Jug is not a tank
Just like a pyro merc is not a healer
Just like a healer spec Op isnt going to insta-gib you with backstabs

Classes have more than one role depending on how they spec. Welcome to SWTOR, do you need help getting past Hutta?

Its tanks in full battlemaster and stacking fro crit mult. The problem is that the juggs has to run a ridiculous attack sequence that can be easily avoided by CCing him interrupting it knocking him back or just plain running away.

that looks impressive, but watch the video. She gets one of those big crits per warzone. (see one in huttball, then shes in alderan etc) And everything else she throws out hits for 800-1.5k so if you can survivie the initial smash, she is a puppy until choke/shatter comes off CD.

also she whines in the OP that she thinks the class sucks. Also it looks like she is stacking surge by picking apart her champ gear. And this is before surge nerf.

I wish i could do that!

as was said before, in order to get big smash crits you have to go deep into rage, and at least 3 pts into vengeance which leaves about nothing that is tank related.


and yes, so easy to counter.

1. wait until you see a smash go off
2. knockback
3. no damage done, and cd wasted
win!

Lets not kid yourself its still in heavy armour , shield , still has cool defensive abilities...if you think is normal to do 7 k aoe dmg as dps tank pls show me dmg of real dps classes that do this kind of dmg , every real dps classes trade dps for lower armour no shield etc...
