I leveled as Pyrotech until I got to Tatooine. Now mobs are starting to hit a bit harder, so I'm going Shieldtech.

I'm currently 22 as Pyrotech. Mainly for PvP reasons. I am doing fine. I probably need to start eyeing Mako's gear now. I bought all the level 20 PvP gear and am cruising.

Combat Training quarter, look for the female human in heavy armor that's just a PvP vendor (not Battlemaster, Champion or any other prefix). You can get implants (and an earpiece?). You can also get relics from your LS/DS vendor at that level.

You shouldn't invest in gear until your 40's. it's pointless and a waste of money....

You pay with pvp commendations, not money. At that level you are capped at a thousand which you can make in no time, so you may as well spend them

Are you capped in merc commendations before spending those?

bingo. i take out even champion mobs with no difficulty so far. i can't solo groupx4's if it's like.. 3 elites+ per pull (i.e. the jedi-quest on narshaddah, i couldn't do that solo) - but, while slightly slow on long fights, you've got tons of survivability.

i've not come close to dying yet as shieldtech lvling. i usually pull a couple groups together and then flame whirl them/death from above/flamethrower. very fast. it's fun being durable

It's another equipment slot. They're kind of like trinkets from WoW, if you are familiar with that.
