Hello, I am running the 31/0/10 spec in pvp i have DPS gear Stacked with power, alot of friends tell me i dont need to stack crit really with this spec? is this correct? if its correct why is this so when the other two specs require crit to 30%.

but that seems to be tanking spec not DPS exactly...so you might miss some tanking stats.
For sure Stalker set is for DPS spec.
Dark side is a pathway to many abilities, some consider to be unnatural.

aaah.. yes,, crit around 30% is fine.

If you're talking about PvP, it's generally recommended that you don't stack crit whatsoever if you're running Kinetic as DPS or the KC hybrid. The reason for this is because PA provides you with guaranteed Project crits, and Project is gonna be your big burst DPS hit. For the others, you've got Force Potency.

If you're talking about PvE, you're stacking your gear *entirely wrong* because a PvE tank is all about mitigation stacking.

I've been playing a Shadow Tank from the beginning of the game and pvp way too much . Kitru is correct. Ignore crit and stack power or maybe defense instead (and enough surge to get to around 75%).
