Hello. I need help with gearing my juggernaut immortal for PVP (i mean RWZ). I want to have a good survivability, and do some damage too. I played both, rage and vengeance on rwz, but... they are very useless right now, so I decided to play as immortal on pvp. Need some pro tips and stat build for him.

When I finally gave up on vigi I went Skank too. It's really the best option for guardians right now sadly...

I basically went tank set bonus, high endurance power mods,high endurance crit/alacrity enhancements. I know some people that like to run optimized dps mods/enhancements for more damage. For me personally, however, I am a tank main. My goal is to survive, keep my team alive, be annoying as possible, then do damage where I can. I therefore go endurance stack as defense/shield/absorb are basically meaningless for pvp.

Well, if you didn't like Rage or Veng, it's unlikely you'll have a much better time with skanking but, who knows. That said, the overall idea is pretty simple: take tank armorings, shield generator, DPS gear and high endurance. The class is pretty versatile: it can do some damage and it can take some damage, just don't expect it to excel in either.

TBH, there's plenty of threads talking about how to gear and play skank tanks, so try look for those if you need help. Here's two:

If there's anything I'd add, remember to use sweeping slash to spread trauma debuff on enemies. It's easy to do and reduces the healing they receive.

Also, I've not come across the term "RWZ" before. Does that refer to regular warzones or ranked warzones?

The survivability of skanking is vastly better than the near joke that is vigi or worse focus. Or maybe I'm just used to tanking... yes you're sacrificing damage but then that's to be expected from a tank.

Only ranked warzones. I feel very good at 8v8 warzones, really. But on rankeds, guardians are always focused first.. And with that, focus and vigi are useless at the moment. That's why i'm thinking about skank tank.

I'm working on a stank DPS build for veng, but that's like two months more of grinding before testing (I'm not buying another round of 246s).

Skank is straight forward; warding (tank) armorings, lethal B mods (high health), discipline enhancements (high health), and endurance augments. Only the armorings are 248; the mods and enhancements are 246 and can be bought on the GTN.

You don't lose out on the (non-power) secondary stats on discipline enhancements (or whatever high health alternative you select).

Compared to tank sets, you're trading defense and shield/absorb for power and crit. Compared to dps sets, you're trading power for health.

My skank build is basically endurance stacking. Tank set bonus, 248 preferred. Lethal b mods, 246 crafted. High endurance crit/alacrity enhancement,246 crafted. With fortitude augments (high endurance low power). I'm at 148k health now haha.

Run with a healer and watch the enemy cry as they try to kill the two of you.

You're doing it wrong. Neither spec can use the other spec's 2-piece bonus. The only 4-piece bonus worth a damn is the tanking one.

You may have not notice this but this is the only tank class wherein the DPS set armor bonus are not darken and are green. I go for the 4 set dps Ravage bonus. Bolster is also amazing.
