Thanks for posting this guide. It's going to help me a lot.
I lead an Imperial guild on Jung-Ma and recently decided to make a Republic guild on the same server. Some of my troops want HK-51 and wanted to get a head start on their Republic characters for it. I don't really have a need for HK-51 but I enjoy playing with the guys and gals in my guild.

So I decided to roll a Jedi Shadow purely for PvP. My main on the Imperial side was a Heal spec Sorc but converted him into a DPS after some of my troops expressed interest in healing. I leveled up traditionally and didn't really touch PvP much past the point when they hit us with the nerf bat. This is going to be some virgin territory for me.

So forgive me if you've already answered these questions previously.
1. I noticed that you had asked HouseSolo which playstyle he would want to play. I would like to play in a way that maximizes my points with as much DPS as possible. So which would be better for me to play as? The one that throws a Guard on the healer and defends that healer? Or should I just go straight DPS against the other teams healers?

2. For PvP, is the Biochem (Biochem/Bioanalysis/Diplomacy) crew skills viable for the stims? Or should I just stick to going with Slicing and make credits?

Did anyone ever try a variation of the Slow-stab build?

Hey,
It's in the "PvP Tank with DPS Gearing" section of KC -> Gearing

"I do not recommend equipping a Shield Generator in PvP; you'll be better off with a Power Generator."
(just above "PvP Tank High Protection Playstyle" )
Duct tape is like The Force; it has a light said and a dark side and it holds the universe together.
While I always try to provide correct and meaningful information I have been known to make mistakes, from time to time.

When you post the 1.3 build can you show the full build to level 50?

Looking forward to the 1.3 updates and theories. I just logged on my shadow for the first time in a while.
I've got about 5 bm pieces, and still find the class doing very well in pvp. Very much missing the procs on my trinks...
And missing the set bonus from my crafted augmented bm slot gear.,

Question is , what is the optimal gear setup ? For example , before you took 2 surv bm pieces to get the set bonus , an the rest stalker, ... Is that still the case?

Thanks. And again glad to see post still rolling.

Very cool guide, i learned some new things and thank you for the effort you put into this for us. I did want to mention though that all the skill tree links are out of date and do not display properly, might want to check it.

Is it just me or does the PVE Balance spec in the OP look like someone's edited it and not finished?

Can one be remade and edited into the first post?

Yeah, the skill trees are a mess.
