I haven't tried ST yet but being tanky while leveling instead of damaging sure seems to be the way to go, to me atleast... I am currently level 18.
If you were trying to use combustible cylinder, and you have most of your points speced into advanced prototype., Then you will not be getting the benefit of most of the abilities from the advanced prototype tree. The best abilities in advanced prototype tree require that cylinder to be active.

At least up to 32 instances can be done with fully DPS specced group. I have been running them with a guild group, so results might varry with a pug. Shield tech talents don't give you too much defensively speaking until you start geting block and absorb rating up
