BW, do you ever plan on addressing Shield Vanguards/Pyrotechs PvP-wise?

I'm in agreement, both non-Pyro trees of the vanguard/PT are incredibly underpowered and need some love.

Even in PVE the tank vanguards seem to fall short compared to the other two tanking classes...

Also can you restrict the use of taunts (especially AoE taunts) to the respective tanking stance/cell? It makes no sense that DPS classes can divert damage better than tanks can by taunting and killing off the marauding opponents fast enough to annul their damage to teammates. It would promote more actual tanking in PVP which we could certainly use.
The only true profit in this galaxy is freedom.

Make that thread a sticky .

Alternative would be to make our shields work on all types of damage, but with its effectiveness greatly reduced. Seeing how many many talents increase our chance to block as well as absorbtion, tree will never be viable in pvp if the shield is useless there.

And I'd go step further, and restrict taunting not only to tanking stance but also to a tanking offhand

just make the taunts for non-tanks weaker like only 10% damage reduction

Good thread, I miss 'Storm and Stab' build. Not the best, but the laugh factor of leaping like a Knight and bashing/slashing reds to death was priceless.

My thought exactly, until using a shield in pvp is viable, tanks (besides juggs for huttball maybe) will be in short supply for pvp.
