Coming soon to a Warzone near you. I'm about to do back flips down the hall!


Personal shield generators are now effective against all attacks that deal Energy and Kinetic Damage, rather than just direct weapon attacks.

And people complain about hybrid tank Shadows/Assassins in DPS gear now. The whining will be legendary when this goes live.

They also changed the guardian DPS (vindicator) 2-piece set bonus so it is not BiS for tanks.

The current DPS 2pc set vindicator bonus is "heal 8% when you friendly leap" and the new one is "Vindicator's Gear 2pc (PVE): Reduces the minimum range of Saber Throw by 10m." Not a huge change but definitely an improvement IMO.

I am a bad player, so what?

LOL, plus "Phase TANK":

Quote:
Shadow
A new ability, Phase Walk, has been added. Phase Walk allows the Shadow to place a mark that can be instantly returned to at a later time, after which Phase Walk goes on cooldown. This ability is usable in stealth mode and trainable at level 51.

Should have been like that from the beginning. Made no sense that pvp tank gear had stats that actually were no benefit to pvp.
On the Internet, you can be anything you want. It is strange so many people choose to be stupid.

Personally I think it should be all direct damage that should be shieldable, but since it has been over a year that this has been asked again and again, I think I won't complain and take it.

I'm considering my Shadow to return to the Tank path. If they screw it again, I quit playing Tank in SWTOR for the rest of my life whatever the upcoming change will appear in the future.
