You are terribly wrong about that, sorry but you are.

All shadow specs are fun to play. The hybrid is just awesome because of the damage, utility, and survivability.

If you want to win 1v1s, go dps gear while being tank specced.(23/1/17, 27/0/14, 0/27/14 are all good 1v1 specs)

If you want to node guard and stall the enemy from getting a node for as long as possible so reinforcements can arrive... wear tank gear in tank spec.

In the end, it comes down to what you prefer to do. Win 1v1s, or stall the enemy.

the only usefull tanking stat is endurence in huttball and erverywhere else. a jugg/guardian is allways the ball carrier because of its dmg reduce abilitys(and different leaps) not because of defense stats wich every tanking class can have aswell.

It. Is. Tank. Gear.

If a tank can 1 on 1 a dps and win, THEN I know something is wrong. Tanks aren't for duels, they're for objectives.

Let me tell you a little secret:

GEAR:
Elite warhero Survivor armorings + warhero reinforced mods27 (from elite warhero bracers) and adept enhancements 27 (from elite warhero combat medic boots)

Shield generator but dont use absorb /shield rating mods or enhancers , stay at basic 25%.

Resolve / Redoubt augments

Guard a healer for the extra damage (survivor gear)

and go for a 26/1/14

You can Tank and deal insane amounts of damage.


you need alot of work? yes
worth it? totally

I have about the same hp on my Guardian tank as most dps (okay, maybe slighlty more), but I live a lot longer. And it's not just cooldowns; those aren't always available. It's mitigation. Just because it doens't work for everything, doesn't mean it works for nothing.

And I can absolutely kill people with my tank (but it will take some time). Yes, the Guardian tank v Shadow hybrid is a tough matchup, but we all agree that the Shadow hybrid in dps gear is the best 1v1 in the game and possibly one of the more unbalanced aspects of pvp. I'm not beating one of these guys unless they are a worse player, simple as that.
A classic sig that should not be lost:

Rofl, that's the silliest excuse I've ever heard for dps specs dominating in pvp. "It's okey dps specs destroy tanks...tanks are for holding objectives." Ahhh, it all falls into place now. Because I can hold an objective 10 seconds longer, I should stand no chance in 1on1 encounters!!

Thankfully this isn't true in SWTOR. Hybrid juggernaut tanks destroy most dps specs. Shadow/Assassin tanks beat pretty much everything 1 on 1, and even the Shieldtech powertech, the sad black sheep of all the SWTOR specs, can beat some dps specs in duels when played well.

Also, I really hope Bioware will have the guts to change how defensive stats like shield and defense works in PvP, It makes zero sense that these stats are only roughly 50% effective in pvp, while dps stats are 100% effective.
