Actually quite the opposite Tanks are extremely good in pvp
I remember looking at a Jedi Guardian their Taunt ability is extremely good

Taunting an enemy makes them deal 50% less damage to anyone else other then you. (i believe they changed this to 30% with the recent build but its still pretty amazing). the sheild on your allies transfers damage you party members would receive on to you so you can keep party members alive to bring the ball to the end zone

and since these games are objective pvp you dont have to worry much about kill/death streak.

Edit: heres the video i saw explaining about a Sith Tank pvping
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3wdBfybZp0


I noticed there are Jedi Shadow skills that do similar things, like a guard skill and that damage debuff for attacking PC's other than you. I guess this means that a Shadow, built a certain way, can off-tank?

That would be so cool, if this game was much kinder to tanks in PvP. Most of the time in other MMO's everyone ignores the tank and saves him for last kill since his lower DPS and melee restrictions meant most took care of the healers and CC first before bothering to hack the tank down.

Yeah jedi shadows and the sith counterpart can actually tank so i heard which gives the game 6 total tanks in the game.


The video I link gives you an example of tanks in pvp though its low lvl. Hutball is gonna he a mainstay for tanks as you can bring the ball closer then probably anyone carrying the ball or protect a teammate. Gets me more excited about this game

So excited for this game. Pre-ordered the collectors edition the first day I played of the beta weekend I got in. Tried out the sith marauder and thought it was nice but I absolutely love my imperial agent and will be going with that when it goes live.

LOL we delayed preorder until today, so I don't think we're getting in early, unless they squeeze us in the day before. No biggie.

So one of my old guilds decided to play, after all, since so many had been waiting for it, and they had already preregistered and been assigned a server, so here is where we will be:

Faction: Republic
Server: Iron Citadel - PvP (East)



We are accepting applications.

It looks like my server will be very high on Empire population, which means lots more sexy PvP for me! <3

Added your guild to my Enjin sites (username Schmoopies) in case you guys end up on the same server as us, let me know, we can coordinate any raids.

LoL love that pic Schmoopies!
Drat I wish we did end up on the same server. We're on Bondar Crystal. It's pretty awesome how many servers there are though!

It's pretty cool to see other people playing SWTOR. I think this has a lot of depth too the story lines and dear god do I love that taunt (I play DPS/Healer so I love when they take aggro off me).

i dont know if anyone here can help me but, i have a 50 sith assassin thats tank spec and, im not to sure which rating is better to stack for tanking, i know that defense ratings basically a avoidance tank, but ive been focusing on absorb and shield rating

besides that i love this game i enjoy it so much even though it was kind of lame that people with slicing were raking in the big bucks early on.

Awesome game, miles ahead of WoW. Just sad I had to cancel my sub for the next few months till I graduate.

This game has consumed me for the past few weeks lol. Finally got my Sith Sorcerer to level50 and started doing hard modes. The game has been super fun so far and the pvp has been fun especially leveling on Tatooine!
