Oh thank God, I was looking for something about gear. I didn't actually expect to find much since this game is so new, it's good to see people are already on it.

Is there any reason to go for kinetic ward in the kinetic/balance hybrid build (23/0/18) for PvP?
There are several threads about how useless shields and defensive stats are in PvP due to the fact that only white damage is affected by them.

So in my opinion, for the build Kinetic Ward is a wasted point am I right?

Has anyone got any stories/info on the high regen backstab spec?

Whilst I know its not as efficient, this sound more suited to my playstyle of in/out tactics.

Id imagine the best way to use this tree is to not open with a backstab but rather with a stun, to then try to proc circling shadows.

well im just after feedback before i hit 49 ( 47 ).

In big fights I still use up my Kinetic Ward before the cooldown is finished, so it does have an impact. I have been looking but so far I haven't come up with a better distribution for that point.

I am tagging this for later, as my Shadow is currently 28 and slowly moving through content to get the story. The strangest thing I have noticed is that we should build for POWER not CRITICAL as the tank version. Looking at the descriptions of powers and skills I really thought CRIT was the right direction to go...

I haven't seen anything that boosts SURGE rating, so I am thinking I must be young in my career. Thank you for the guide, it will be very helpful.

Not sure if this was brought up in the previous 11 pages but I tried clicking on the link to your personal site so that I could print out the guide and it said that your site was suspended. Thought I would bring this to your attention as I am sure you already knew anyways.

Thanks for the hard work on this very well laid out guide.

I sent Astral the updated PDF version a wee while ago. However, if anyone wants it, let me know somewhere to host it (either as the pdf or as rar file) and I shall upload it myself.

Awesome Guide!!! Insane amount of information!!! Thank you so much for putting this together!!!

Question though, I saw you mentioned a PvP build called Earth Bender (22/12/17). I didn't see any other mention of it in your guide and was wondering what your thoughts were on this and what technique to use with it? If its not worth elaborating on it then no worries.

Thanks
