    I play Defense, and the guide says what I pretty much do.

    Defense ? seriously ?

    I was about 31 def /10 vigilance till I found out that Vigilance tank is way better.

    Now I'm 17 def/24 vigilance

    Analyse tier per tier, point per point... and you will see what I mean.

    Guardian slash is underpowered when compare to overhead slash.

    blade barrier is broken and is really not effective, way better to get protector from vigilance tree (+4% endurance, and the bonus to guardian apply to both target and player)

    And in all this, with the vigilance tree, it's damn easier to hold treat

    I won't go and explan all the build I now use,  they are already plenty of guide over the net about it.

    Good article.  I made the gross error of rolling a sentinel with my Jedi.  Perhaps one day I'll go back and change specs, but until then I'm enjoying my commando trooper a LOT more than I did the Jedi.  The Jedi had a great story, so I do want to return to it at some point to finish that, but not until I've drained all the fun out of the trooper class first. :)

    Unfortunately best Guardian spec is called "Trooper". You could remove Guardians from the game, as they aren't actualy needed, same goes for Smugglers. I play both as my mains, but after class quests are done, they go on the shelf.  Odd that two of the Icons of the IP would have no specific purpose, or be neccessary. There is no encounter where a Guardian, or Sawbones is a must have. Troopers, and Councelors are better.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy playing both, but.....Han, and Luke are riding at the back of the bus.

    Yeah...I kinda agree.  Don't get me wrong, I too am having fun.  But I was thinking about a quote the other day from Obi-wan "Sith are our speciality"....well, uhm...not really, lol. Almost any other class can take out Sith easier than a Jedi Knight. Trooper comes to mind.  If the SWTOR universe were real, there'd be little reason for the Jedi Knights to have ever sprung into existance. They certainly aren't needed to deal with dark side force users.
