Hi i just hit 50 a couple days ago and was wondering what stats i should aim for to tank flashpoints (normal and hardmode) for my vanguard

My gear is all epic modded, i'm pretty close to the daily implants but the rest of my gear is epic crafted

here are my stats

16khp

56% shield chance
43% shield absorb
15% defence

50ish damage reduction

Requirements for normal flashpoitns and hard modes

Thanks

What class are you?

For a powertech your shield chance seems a bit too high. Use morningmusume spreadsheeet from powertech forum to work out the best combination of stats to maximize your tanking ability but i'm doing HM's with less overall mitigation than what you have.

Ps i assume your last stat is defense, not shield defense.

Whoops yeah i meant defence.

I'm trooper (vanguard), i've just been going for what a guide has been saying (shieldchance>absorb>defence)

didnt know it was bad to have it that high

I think above 50% both shield and absorb's effects diminish and it is best to focus on other things.

If I remember correctly, 50% is the cap for damage reduction and shield chance/absorption.....

but other than that, you should be fine.

I just started running HMs with buddies and I am running on these stats:

17K hp
25% defense
36% shield
32% absorb
690 max damage
280 bonus damage

just cleared up BT and BP last night, not sure about rest of the HMs yet. I am not running with PvE gear though, I am in my PvP gears. 8x champion, the rest are centurion
