Question About Noob Tanking

I am returning to the game and my ultimate goal is to try to get into Endgame in the future. I am starting from scratch even though I have some higher level toons, to me it has always been better when I actually want to learn the class to start from 1.

When I queue for VM Flashpoints does it matter how I queue, I keep seeing it is pointless to queue as a tank. Also are there any good guides for once I get a higher level like Wow has fat boss. Any tips for a new tank appreciated.

The issues with queuing VM FP as a tank are that roles are not enforced. I.e. you are unlikely to get, for example, a healer. So even if your dps dont start before you or pull off you, you're going to spend a lot of time healing yourself between trash and/or dying a lot.

The issue with not learning while leveling, of course, is that while many groups are willing to explain mechanics to you, most will expect you to know the class.

I am in the same boat sir and I have not found many up to date Jedi Gaurdian tanking guide expect one but it is mostly pvp. I have found you must weed out the pvp talents and study the basic essential for the class. If you have come across a good guide or site, discord please pass it on! Thanks and good luck.

You'll have to convert to Republic terms, but everything you need for PvE is in there.
Don't ever learn how to tank.
They won't let you do anything else once they know you are good at it.
