Guardian/Juggernaut Tank best in slot

hello hello everyone (sry for my bad english)

I'm looking for some advice in how to change the gear of my guardian/juggernaut tank (in pvp).
I'm using "Advanced Fortitude Augment 28" atm and i tried to get as much "Defense Chance" in my gear as possible. Which means, I got rid of all the Shield Absorbtion from the mods and enhancements and I ounly use the Earpiece and Implants with defense.
Why did I do this? Well, I read once (somewhere) that defense is more important then shield (at least in pvp). But is this still (if ever) the case?
I just can't find a nice guide that deals with this question. :-(

My goal is to stay alive as long as possible. So no need for Hybrid or DPS stuff. What helps me the most in pvp? Absorb or Defense? Or half and half?

Any help would be REALY great :-)

Best choice is reroll to any other tank cuz except Huttball, jugg tank is useless spot in team, cuz have crappiest dps, cannot alone defend node without risk being ninjad and have not -30% aoe dr for main fight to stay alive in smash storm.

This is a lie, Guardians can do just as good at node guarding as the other Tanks, it just depends on the players. Also Guardians have the best defenses of the Tanks. He also lied because PT Tanks are better for Huttball, with Jump and Pull, and I would know having both.

On the subject of gear, I would get a balance of Shield/Absorb/Defense with a little more defense than the other 2, and stick with the Fortitude Augs.

Wow this guy been sippin to much coolaid.

Jugg are by FAR the best pvp tank. The point of a tank is not to lone guard nodes lol its to protect the Healer and no other class can do it better than a jugg with proper taunting and intercede with guard. A OP healer and a juggTank is DEVASTATING to play aggainst almost unkillable. You must not see that on your server but people on pot5 know teamwork and somtimes that makes for long matches with almost unkillable pocket healers.

To the question is def better, yes .

There is why only 1 guardian in Top-100 group ranked and only 3 juggs in Top-100 solo ranked (and all 3 vigilance there, not immortal) for sure.
/facepalm

Try to play some pvp instead your fp/operations dude. Good luck.
