I was likely incorrect. STR modifies our force attacks, not our force healing.

It's a cool idea in some respects but the absorb amount needs a buff. If you intend to tank stuff you should take it.

You're partially wrong. Willpower/power scales with all our force attacks, including the barrier. Get the willpower datacrons, but don't choose gear with willpower.
If you say plz because it's shorter than please, I will say no because it's shorter than yes.

Sonic Barrier is totally worth the talent points the 4 piece tier set gives u an extra 20% making it go up to 40% so now instead of absorbing a 1.2k hit ur absorbing a 2.4 thats amazing especially if u know the boss is enraging or hitting harder that one absorbed hit could be just enough for the healers heal too go off before u die so yea totally worth taking it No CONTEST!

And I do like the other tier 1 talents more...
You don't have to use it right away, literally your next Scream is free of charge. You'll want to use it often anyway, it's nice to have damage mitigation free of charge somewhere close to the beginning of a fight. What do you like more for Tier 1 talents, Quake?

Ruin would be nice, but it's not practical in an Immortal spec.

Servers are down so I'm unable to test right now, but here's a question:

When Soresu Form is active, you gain 1 Rage when you take damage. Do you still gain the Rage when the hit is fully absorbed by a Sorc's bubble, or a Force Grr bubble? What about when partially absorbed? I'm guessing you would gain Rage when partially hit, because you are essentially, still being hit.

Right now I find Juggertanking terrible, I need to make an entire post as to why... when I can muster the effort.

Sonic barrier needs a buff imo. I had immortal, then tried veng hybrid...then got 4 columi for the 20% buff and went back to immortal to test it out...still didnt seem worth it to me.

WITH IMMORTAL BUILD I...

1. Lost HP...forget exact numbers but it was anywhere from 500-1k i believe(don't quote me)

2. Lost ~4% damage redux...was at 50%..then got lowered to ~46%

3. Lost unstoppable...which is good in pvp as well

4. Lost huddle..which for me is fun to use in tanking and also protects that DPS next to u and yourself in the process.

5. Lost Impale...which is a cool animation imo compared to Backhand/Crushing Blow

6. Lost DPS...or at least seems like i did.

7. Lost a faster C/D on impale/force scream(which does bleeding dam)

So needless to say i immediately switched back to 14/27/0

So you swapped 4% shield chance and a dmg bubble... for a pretty animation for tanking?

umadbro?
