Looking for Guardians!!!
« on: May 08, 2012, 08:47:10 am »
I am rolling a Jedi Guardian at the moment and would like to get some feed back and tips from others. I love my Jedi as I really love tanking, but i find that the fun factor in PvE has dropped considerably since the patch. I also have a Vanguard and he is so much fun. I have tried different builds, seen improvement, but if it wasn't for Doc and would wipe every five minutes on Hoth. Any suggestions or tips? Thank in advance.

Hi Snnow, you just pretty much summed up my experience playing a JKG all the way to 50 including pvp.. I like him as a tank but he's a lot less fun than my commando in pvp.  I haven't really found him too hard (as long as I have doc out and reasonably well geared) in PvE, but I'll admit I haven't been doing a lot of world PvE since hitting 50 which was a while ago now.

Go with a hybrid build. I found that to be pretty effective on my juggernaut in the 40-50 range.

The idea is to run Soresu form and still you a tanking off hand while putting out some decent damage.

Hey there!

I just recently made my Guardian my main. I PvP with him a lot although he isn't 50 yet, I have less than half a bar of xp to hit 50. All of the PvP has been sub-50 but as most will attest to, I typically lead WZ's in medals or close to it.

Here is the spec I run:

I find it works great in PvP and I tear through PvE content like a beast. Just so you know, I started leveling him as a tank but shelved him for a good while because I wasn't happy with how long it took to kill stuff. Since changing to this spec, I am having so much fun with this toon that I made it my main.

Hope this helps!

After I got Doc on my Guardian, I was unstoppable in PVE. Vigi is pretty awesome, especially once you get to 40, and does a lot of damage. It's also pretty simple, as far as rotation is concerned, so it's not difficult to master. Just remember to use master strike whenever it's up and it doesn't put you in a tactically bad spot.

You are, of course, correct. -JC

Ok tried the nes stack, not overly fitting play style. Apparently I am a tank threw and threw. Thinking about this build, and as I am not great with theory crafting and the like yet, can i get some feed back please.http://www.torhead.com/skill-calc#500GMhzudrzZforMMZMM.1

I ran a tank until lvl 43 and got very bored with it in PvE, switched to Vigilance and switched to Doc for healing and the Guardian was awesome again. Spell rotation is simple like he said, most trash mobs are dead in 1-3 hits, very fun!

I think you will be lacking a good hard hitting ability with that build. I would suggest going 31 into Defense or 21 into Vigilance. I prefer to have Overhead Slash or Guardian Slash into my rotations. It's good for PVP and PVE and will help keep rotations moving. I stared at the talents for a long time trying to work out a defense hybrid that consisted of hilt strike, but if you go 21 points into defense you might as well go all the way up.
