The one where you make the bad things die.

Tanking will obviously have a good place. The two different kinds of dps will probably vary based on the encounter. There's a lot to be said for extra range and self-healing from Balance, and sheer death-dealing from Infiltration.

A lot of it will also be affected by your playstyle and skillset as an operation member.

Thanks so much for taking the time to make this guide for everyone. I will make sure to direct new Jedi Shadow players to this thread as much as I can.

You have put alot of work into this guide and you deserve this to be a sticky.

Thanks once again.

Just a suggestion, we've got threads on Kinetic and Balance Shadows that have pretty good guides too. My Balance guide was designed as a supplementary to yours anyway, so maybe we should link them all together? Am planning on linking specific sections back to parts of your guide.

What would you recommend in regards to leveling up in infiltration? or kinetic? Do you stick with the infiltration tree until you hit the 31 point talent and then invest into the kinetic and balance for the extra points or are they needed during the leveling process?

I guess that is my main question: how important are Technique Mastery, Applied Force, and Force Synergy to a leveling build? Get them sooner or later?

And great guide by the way!
