I have been playing a shadow DPS and I am almost to valor 60 and about to start investing in my Battle master gear. I have really enjoyed the class and like the way it plays, I generally can hold my own in PVP if there is a decent healer in the group but get owned in most 1 vs 1s.... I was thinking maybe I should respect to tank....any thoughts or suggestions on which is a better skill tree to play for PVP before I start buying my battlemaster gear?

Hey there, your question is best answered by Powerr a shadow infil and kinetic..
Watch the vid "powerr shadow solo tank w/ commentary"...
You'll be kinetic like 2 mins after... There is also infil burst vids too..
31 0 10, This is one of the best pvp specs in the game atm, I mean I see huge dps numbers by infil, but the survivability in swtor pvp stops caps, interupts more, guards heals or dps, can use kick out of stealth, and tank that can stealth aint bad at all..

You do want the stalker set, and the survivor... Yes u gotta get both.
You can swap the mods any way u want that way...

Any way check the vids.. And the pvp tank thread sticky on shadow tank pvp. By powerr.
He made me proud to roll a shadow..
