I love the guide man, I've been following it and reading it back and forth. I hope you make more!

Nice guide!

But I got one question:
How is the PVP Balance Tank build affected by the 1.1.2 patch? Is there a better set up to roll after the patch goes life/in general? Does the gear I choose differ from the other balance builds or is it the same (or should I get the gear meant for a tank-build)?

Thank you!

Yeah, I'm currently at lvl 38 going towards 23/0/18 and I'm very happy with my build. I wonder if 1.1.2 changes make this build worthless?

Pretty much. Once 1.1.2 hits, all builds that take fewer than 31 points will probably be removed from the guide.

Quick Question Astral:

With the 31/0/10 build, would you recommend going all the way up or getting upheaval first for PvP??

Is 27/0/14 out of the running, then? The versatility of FiB plus survivability of Harnessed Shadows is pretty good combination, and unaffected by the loss of Force Strike.

Meh.

Let me weigh 27/0/14 versus 31/0/10:

Harnessed Force:
+ 30m range attack on three targets, 15s CD
+ +10-20% damage on Double Strike (+400 to +800 damage every 10s, assuming 3 double strikes)
- -15% damage on breach
- AoE slow
- Constant snare
- Effective spammable AoE damage on 5 targets
- +50% time spent to fully stack Harnessed Shadows (+1700 damage every 10s, +600 health every 10s)

Note all figures are very rough, but they're orders of magnitude better for Slow Time.

Which is the better route for healing ourselves in pvp?

Kinetic:

(Impact control + Harnessed Shadows)

or

Balance:

(Focused Insight + Force in Balance)

Thanks

Kinetic is going to have more self-healing, even after the patch.

I have noticed when I use Force Cloak when in a fight, the enemies I am fighting re-heal to full health. Is that part of the ablity or am I doing something wrong?
