What spec will give me the most damage in pvp for Jedi Sent? I believe it's between Combat and Focus. I usually average around 300+ but i see some jedi who get like 500+. At the end of the day how do I get to 500+? Right now im combat and I thought you get the most damage out of it because of burst. But people with focus can get a 5 k hit with that smash move. Please help...

Combat will give you more single target DPS. But focus gives more damage overall, since it hits multiple people with lol-sweep

Watchman is the best 1v1. Combat is easily shut down. For the highest overall dps, go with watchman or focus, the latter getting the highest in close quarter warzones like voidstar.

Combat is the best spec for pvp 1v1. Watchman is garbage due to the nerf. Smash spec is good for group aoe, but isn't very good at 1v1.

I originally was a watchman spec, which I used to level and pvp at 50. You won't kill a good healer in pvp or put out enough damage if the healer knows to dispel your dots. It's really that simple. Combat on the other hand with good gear can put enough pressure on a healer, but your a little squish compared to watchman. Only very well geared and experience healers will survive otherwise the healer will die if your left alone. Smash spec is good for heavy melee groups, but isn't that great for 1v1 or as good like a guardian smash spec. A guardian smash is stronger.

If you're a solo player, I'd advice to stay away from combat (unless you're willing to respec for it in huttball). Bubble stun will shut down your burst completely in most cases atm.

This isn't true at all. Watchman was and still is the best 1v1 spec. Even after the heal nerf. As far as killing healers is concerned, If you have trouble doing that then you weren't playing the class right.

All specs are capable of doing decent wz dps i've done over 800 dmg per second with all 3 of them and if i can do it anyone can. Focus is probably the easiest one for big numbers/dps in wzs because its aoe and yes combat is hell to play with bubble stuns everywhere but they all do good dmg.
