Hybrids are made because going up a full tree isn't viable to begin with :/

As mentioned many times before, BW has made it clear that they wish to balance the AC's around their 3 skill trees. Hybrid build's make balancing harder because instead of taking into account only 3 builds, you know have 3 + 1 or 2 more Hybrid builds for each AC.

That is why BW has been making changes. Immortal tank hybrid is obsolte now, Full Immortal is better. Sorcerer DPS remains to be seen but from what i can read lightning dps is good now , Sniper hybrid builds need more parses but MM and Lethality are both in a good spot as well.

What is that?

You don't deal periodic damage... is this supposed to be run in force technique or something? Why do you have shield talents and no harnessed shadows? I don't want to say bad build is bad but that needs work; the hybrid you're trying to recreate was never about tanking.

I know it was never about tanking, but since shields are now relevant in PVP...I figured it wouldn't hurt to have a slight buff to it...plus it's not like there aren't a couple of points left to fill anyway in the tree to get to Bulwark and force pull or death field

It hasn't....my build will be capable of stance swapping...indeed it's micro management...but it is what it is...there's a really good 27/5/14 build on the shadow forums that accomplishes more or less what the old 23/1/17 or 27/0/14 did in darkness/combat technique
