PvP Experience with Shield Tech Vs. Adv Proto-Type.

I felt like the Adv PT tree just wasn't enough utility to be successful as a powertech. I also tried a hybrid build or two and nothing comes even close to the stats you can pull in all 3 warzones as shield tech tree. I can get over 50k defense close to 150k dps and only die about 3-4 times in a warzone with the build listed below which is mostly shield tech. I also get some decent burst damage for being fully up the Shield Tech tree.

My current build that I am tinkering with is the following:

(Not sure If I want to keep Prototype cylinders or Heat Blast in the Shield tech tree because as it stands I have zero heat issues).

Give me your thoughts and your variations on your Shield Tech build!

Another one I will be testing out once I hit 50 (currently 47).

(Changing for retractable blade + flameburst / rb dmg increase instead of rocket punch dmg increase + neural overload).

Also does anyone know how much dmg 3% aim actually translates into for PvE and PvP?

Cheers <(^.^)<
