I'm a focus guardian. Looking to min / max sweep dps. End game pvp am I looking for the expertise or power color crystal. With the changes to expertise I'm not sure anymore.

Expertise without a doubt. Expertise was doubled last patch and they practically took away the fall off curve completely.
There's no QQing in baseball.

Take every thing this man has said at face value and run with it. Expertise is absolutely the way to go if you're going to be pvp'ing exclusively.

If you did not put it in lightsaber already, it still shouldn't be bound so you can trade it or keep for alt or trading later.

41 power actually wins most of the time by a decent margin...

expertise of course helps your defense in addition to your damage but for max damage power is definitely better. The expertise changes just drastically cut the diminishing returns but even at low expertise before 1.2 you were better off with power crystal, this remains the same.

if you are pvping, expertise all the way. there is nothing more important in pvp then expertise. If its pve then you definitely want power
