can I get some advice on the pros & cons of these 3 following classes in PVE, PuG PVP & Rated PVP.

I have got my lvl 50 Sage healer and really like him, I want to try a tank, can i get some feedback on how are these 3 classes at questing and PvP.

Shadow - I have a lvl 20 of this class, so far so good, can i get some feedback of higher lvl PvE & 50 PvP
Vanguard - We all know this and Pt is the OP class of the moment, but more info required for Pve & rated Pvp
Juggernaught - ive seen this guy in action alot in hutball, lots of jumping about, thoriwng light saber - all very cool looking.

With my sage i can solo any quest with almost no health loss on companion or myself, makes questing a breeze, I can solo heroic 2's and some lower lvl 45 Heroic 4's on my Sage, what can these 3 classes do in this regards with a healing companion.

That is extremely funny coming from a sage, but then I guess I kinda get it: pyro pt is one of 2 classes that really can hurt you.

Regarding tank vanguards? They are probably the only class/specc commando doesn't fear . Leveling with Elara Dorne is a godmode though

Most OP class now is shadow/sin.

Vanguard good dps, but avaible only 1 (dps) spec from 3 trees.
Jugg now avaible 2 spec from 3 trees - rage dps and tank hybrid. But, in case probably nerf rage, there last only 1 avaible tank spec.
In case shadows/sins, there are now plenty avaible specs and hybrids from all 3 trees.

jugg best defense/tank abilities - if you want to be the defensive guy hes the way to go.
vanguard is by far the best pure dps.
shadow is jack off all trades - great overall composition but but weaker in both aspects then the other two specialists.

Van tanks are useless for pvp so dont go there unless you want to go dps

Shadow/gaurdian are a good comparison for me since i have both.
Hybrid shadow tank is the best at gaurding a node which you need for ranked/regs
However, Full tank gaurdians can take damage all day unless they are unlucky enough to get hit by multiple crits(smash)
Solo pvp is better on a hybrid shadow because you are less dependent on having a competent healer in the group. Either way, i strongly recommend only running tank spec with a healer in your premade. you are just useless any other time

As my assassin who is mostly EWH im pretty OP either as tank or dps. I must say...

Love it.

...I do find that snipers and Gunslingers give me trouble if they see me.

But Vanguard DPS spec is still good in Pvp right?

I will be tank spec maybe for hutball and Pve but DPS for the rest.

Hybrid Shadow/sin is by FAR the best rated class in this game. Best pvp tank by a longshot. Can beat anyone 1 v 1, can guard a node better then anyone and can do good dmg and guard better then anyone. The dps specs of sin/shadow aren't bad either, but the hybrid spec is so OP that noone plays them.

Vanguard/pyro pt? Easiest class to dominate the scoreboard on. Only spec that is even close to as easy to play is a madness sorc. Tank spec sucks, so damage is the way to go. A pyro PT can put out better numbers then a smash melee and they are doing that mostly as single target damage (which is crazy). Add to that? They are using about 1/3rd of the buttons...

Jug/Guardian. 2nd rate pvp tank, except in huttball where they are awesome. Dps tree (rage) is getting nerfed and dots can be cleansed (other dps tree). Hybrid smash spec is also getting nerfed, so yeah...

So...if you want to tank/beat everyone in a duel? Sin/shadow.

If you only want to out dps everyone while derping it up (don't forget to throw in a taunt every 15 seconds in between spamming the dumbest rotation in the game), pyro/pt.
