Intro to Shield Specialist Vanguard

“Storming to the front line with a powerful charge, the Shield Specialist Vanguard can withstand any incoming offensive. The Shield Specialist boldly takes the brunt of the attack while employing a wide range of tech-based attacks to gas, blast and jolt their enemies into oblivion..”

The Shield Specialist Discipline of the Vanguard AC is one of the 3 tank Disciplines in Swtor. While lacking the amount of cooldowns of a Juggernaut and the cheese of an Assassin, the VG makes up for it through powerful mitigation passives, mobility and the only tank to be able to sustain damage at a range when need be. This solid tank is more than capable of clearing any content at the highest level.

Gearing and Stats

I’m going to be upfront and tell you I am not a theorycrafter or number cruncher (Maths are hard XD). While there is some common ground on gearing (use tank gear not dps one) there is a bit of leeway on gearing and stats as I will outline below along with what has personally worked for me.

What You Need

  • Set Bonus: 224 Supercommando Armorings
  • Barrel: 224 Resistive Barrel
  • Mods: Warding Mods (Defense)
  • Enhancements: Either Shield or Absorb for your Stat Budget
  • Earpiece and Implants: Same as Enhancements (Shield or Absorb)
  • Stim: Fortitude Stim
  • Stance: Ion Cell

Set Bonus

Set Bonus: Supercommando (224)

  • 2 Piece: 2% Damage Reduction when Energy blast is activated
  • 4 Piece: Activating Shockstrike Reduces CD of Taunt and AoE taunt by 2 seconds
  • 6 Piece:Increases Duration of Riot Gas by 3 Seconds and Reactive Shield by 4 Seconds

Stats and Gearing Methods

Now the above list was intentionally vague as due to the changes in 4.0 with how tanks gear there is argument over what is “best”. Now I will not say there is only one way and if you don’t follow it you will never clear anything as you might expect from a guide :P. As long as you gear have proper item level, no fight will really come down to how min maxed you did your tank. Unless you forgot to budget a stat entirely or forgot to put your gear on (Hey it happens :D)

That said here are some generally agreed upon ranges of stats people use

Shield: 1500-1800

Absorb: 900-1200

For VG Shield>Absorb>Defense

I leave out defense as the amount of defense from mods is far over the limit needed. Now comes for my favorite topic (Kappa).

Mitigation Build vs Higher HP Build

For those unaware but not to dig to deep, Pure Mitigation is just using all tank stuff from the token vendor unlettered. Higher HP build whereby mostly defense is traded for HP is gained through any combination of B Mods, Vendor or Mk-2 tank enhancements, vendor or mk-2 (non crafted) tank implants and earpieces and either Mk-26 tank relics or DPS relics because they have HP. I have read arguments on either side and in the end personally believe neither will make nor break a tank as both types have been used for clearing NiM in 4.0.

That said I personally lean towards more HP for my builds to counter spikes since it’s mostly trading defense for HP and many spike attacks aren’t countered by defense. Unfortunately BW has decided that 224 gear is only unlettered so you will have to go with 220 Mods and Enhancements for HP. So for those who want to see how I gear:

  • Enhancements: Advanced Bastion 43 Enhancement x4, Advanced Bulwark 43 Enhancement x3 (220)
  • Mods: Advanced Warding Mod 43B x9 (220)
  • Earpiece: Exarch Bastion Mk-2 (220)
  • Implants: Exarch Bulwark Mk-2 x2 (220)
  • Relics: Ultimate Exarch Reactive Warding and Shield Amplification (224)
  • Augments: Advanced Shield Augment 40 x 11, Advanced Absorb Augment 40 x 3
  • Shield: 1691
  • Absorb: 1019
  • Defense: 2162
  • HP: 81842

Utilities

Outlined below are the utilities I find useful in a raid environment.

Skillful

  • Battlefield Training: Increases movement speed by 15% (Speed is always good)
  • Reflective Armor: When Into the Fray is activated it deals x amount damage to enemies within 10m. (Free Damage, more damage equal boss dies faster :D)
  • Iron Will: Decreases CD of Hold the Line by 10 seconds and Determination by 30 Seconds (CC Breaker).
  • Muzzle Augs: Increases Ion Pulse by 2 meters and Explosive Surge radius by 1 meter.

Masterful

  • Sonic Rebounder: Allies within range of AoE taunt are granted one reflect of direct damage back to the enemy. (Ability to prevent damage and dish it out, yes please :D)
  • Advance the Line: Increases Duration of Hold the Line by 4 Seconds.
  • Electro Shield: Causes x amount of direct damage back to the enemy when Energy Shield is active.

Heroic

  • Guard Cannon: SC Missile Heals for 3% of Health per missile (Nerfed recently from 5% but still better than most of the other utilities save in specific circumstances)
  • Charge the Line: Increases Speed of Hold the line by 45% (More Speed :D)

Passives and Abilities

Listed below are a general outline of a VG Tank’s abilities and passives.

Overview

The strengths of VG tanking lies in its passives abilities and heavy armor along with its ability to dish out damage from range. With this in mind VG tanking is all about keeping up your passives which luckily is quite easy to do if you use your abilities right.

Passives

With Ion Cell Stance your Armor, Shield, Absorb, Damage Reduction and Accuracy (you have full accuracy while in tank stance) are increased while your damage is decreased. When using it has a chance to deal extra energy damage when you use an attack.

The core element of VG tanking is maintaining its passive stacks of Power Screens and Shield Enhancers. When you reach 3 Stacks of Power Screens Energy Blast will become available to use, significantly increases your absorption by 25%. Building stacks of Power Screens which increase your Absorb revolve around shielding an attack and proc’ing your Ion Cell through attacks particularly High Impact Bolt and Shockstrike. These last two abilities are used to build your Shield Enhancers which increase your Shield.

Rotations and Priorities

A Standard “Opener” (Will Vary):

Preload SC–>Grapple–>Storm–>SS and SC Spam–>HiB–>IS or EB –>IP or IS–>SS or IP–> EB or IP–> Taunt and IP–>SS/HiB—>IS–> AOE Taunt->…… Priority

Priority:

1) EB (Heat Blast)

2) SC (Shoulder Cannon) (off GCD)

3) SS (Shockstrike)

4)HiB (High Impact Bolt)

5) IS (Ion Storm) (with Ion Engine)

6) IP (Ion Pulse)

A few notes about VG tanking rotation. First Grapple  had its threat greatly increased making it near equivalent to the Shadow force pull. 15k threat of the bat is pretty nice. With Storm you get the free 2 Ion Pulses. Right away you want to build your Power Screens and Energy Shields. Now depending in a real fight if you have gotten a third screen or not use Energy Blast. If not use Ion Storm to put the F/T debuff on the target and deal serious damage. During this time you want to use your shoulder cannon since it’s off the GCD and adds to your threat generation and skills.

If the boss does no or little M/R dmg during at least the first two minutes you can use Battle Foucs as an Offensive cooldown instead. Since raid buffs go out at the beginning you can grab a metric poop ton of threat. After first EB use your taunt then IP to get that M/R debuff up then just go from their. Procs are mostly dependent on shielding attacks so see it as priority not static. And here and there rapid shot for heat management as it can build fast even with Reserve Cell and Recharge Cell.

Advice on Tanking in General

Tanking is one of the three trinity types found in Swtor and when it comes to defining clear goals and what constitutes good or even great tanking is harder to quantify than DPS or Heals. That said there are some core keys to being a great tank in Swtor able to tank any boss. I’ll outline them below

1. Global Rule aka No one is perfect- You will make mistakes and you must own up to them. This is key for any role but particularly for tanks. No matter how good you are you will make mistakes because no one is perfect. The key is to learn from them and admit them while at the same time focus on how to do better rather than you made a mistake.

2. Generate all the threats– Keeping threat is highest priority and use both taunts. This is primary goal of tanking as the boss is hitting you instead of a DPS or Heals. Unless a boss has an aggro drop mechanic or you aren’t currently tanking boss use your taunts on CD. Saving them means you’re letting threat go to waste and with Set bonus your taunts will be back up in no time

3. Go Ham on the boss: Every extra dps counts on the boss; the more you do the less DPS have to burn. Particularly true in NiM, tank DPS can help shave off a good number. Tanks can push over 2k in most set piece fights. Whether it’s doing over 400k+ on the Revan Core, shaving a few % off of Brontes, or preventing a third surging chain on Dread Guards, tank DPS does help. Which leads me to last rule

4. Never waste a GCD: Doing nothing is the worst thing you can do: Whether throwing in taunts for extra threat, spamming rapid shots when far away, or carbonizing some adds, every GCD can be filled with something. Unless Styrak is giving you the ole Choke’aroo Kappa. :3

fifa15guide – Man United held by West Ham as Mou is sent off, Arsenal beat Bournemouth

Man United and West Ham finished in a 1-1 stalemate that saw Jose Mourinho sent off for a second time this season.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands as his side suffered another frustrating afternoon at Old Trafford, being held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham United.

The Hammers started brightly and were in front after only two minutes — Dimitri Payet whipped in a free kick after he was fouled by Jesse Lingard and Diafra Sakho got away from Zlatan Ibrahimovic to nod the Londoners into the lead.

United quickly stepped up the tempo and were soon back on level terms as Ibrahimovic got onto the end of a superb pass from Paul Pogba to glance home from six yards out.

The Red Devils, however, then had Mourinho sent to the stands after he reacted angrily to a yellow card shown to Pogba, with the Portuguese seen to kick a water bottle.

Chances fell United’s way with Lingard and Rashford going close, while West Ham midfielder Payet was denied by David De Gea down the other end, and the hosts had to settle for a fourth straight home draw in the Premier League.

Alexis Sanchez scored a brace as Arsenal beat Bournemouth 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium.

Alexis Sanchez scored twice as Arsenal ended their usual barren November run with a 3-1 victory over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners took the lead early on in the first half after Bournemouth defender Steve Cook’s mistake gifted Sanchez his ninth goal of the season, but he visitors got back into the game, with Callum Wilson equalising from the penalty spot after he was brought down in the box by Nacho Monreal.

However, second-half goals from Theo Walcott and Sanchez saw Arsene Wenger’s side win in the Premier League for the first time since Oct. 29.

Charlie Austin’s goal 41 seconds in was the winner, making for an unhappy return for Ronald Koeman to St. Mary’s Stadium.

Ronald Koeman’s return to Southampton was an unhappy one as a goal inside the first minute from Charlie Austin was enough to secure a 1-0 win for the Saints against Everton

Austin scored the only goal of the game with the hosts’ first attack at St Mary’s, nodding home from close range after the ball had come off Saints debutant Josh Sims.

It was a scrappy goal to settle a scrappy game, but Stoke were deserved winners as they bounced back from last week’s defeat by Bournemouth.

Mark Hughes’ patched-up side had too much for a lethargic Watford, who finished with 10 men after a late red card for Miguel Britos as they slipped to a first home defeat since August.

Lionel Messi salvages Barcelona draw; Atletico bounce back to beat Osasuna on fifa15guide

With Barcelona now six points behind Real Madrid in La Liga, the FC crew break down the issues in Luis Enrique’s squad.
Lionel Messi and Barcelona were forced to come from behind to earn a share of the points against Real Sociedad.

Lionel Messi scored in the second half to salvage a 1-1 draw for Barcelona at Real Sociedad on Sunday, while the hosts had a winner incorrectly ruled out for offside.

Sociedad had nearly all the scoring chances in the first half, though they only managed to fire off-target or put in soft shots that Marc-Andre ter Stegen handled.

So it did not come as much of a surpise when Sociedad took the lead in the 53rd minute. Mexico international Carlos Vela ran in on goal and although Ter Stegen stopped his shot the rebound fell to Willian Jose to head in, and Gerard Pique on the line could not keep it from going in.

But the lead lasted only six minutes until Neymar dribbled down the wing and centred the ball for Messi, who took a touch before lashing home the equaliser.

Sociedad should have had the winner 15 minutes from time when Vela slammed a shot against the underside of the bar, and Juanmi was wrongly adjudged to be offside when he followed up to tap the ball into the net.

The result leaves Barca six points adrift of leaders Real Madrid through a third of the season before El Clasico next weekend, while Sociedad moved into fifth.

Kevin Gameiro doubled Atletico’s lead in a straightforward victory at Osasuna.

Diego Godin and Kevin Gameiro scored within two minutes of each other as Atletico Madrid bounced back from their derby disappointment with a 3-0 La Liga victory at Osasuna.

Diego Simone’s men were defeated 3-0 by rivals Real Madrid at home last weekend, seven days after losing against Real Sociedad, but they got back on track domestically with a comfortable win on the road.

An early penalty save from Jan Oblak prevented them from falling behind, and Godin — on a header following a corner — and Gameiro found the net in the 36th and 37th minute.

Yannick Carrasco then slotted slotting under Nauzet Perez in stoppage time to leave struggling Osasuna in the relegation zone.

Ibai and Victor Camarasa struck first-half goals as Alaves recorded a surprise 2-0 victory at high-flying Villarreal.

Winger Ibai slotted in from close range with eight minutes played after Deyverson’s header came back off the left post following a right-wing cross from Edgar.

Villarreal, who were fourth going into the game, fell further behind when midfielder Camarasa, on loan from Levante, doubled the advantage in the 19th minute, seizing on some woeful defending by Argentine Mateo Musacchio to poke the ball past Sergio Asenjo.

Celta Vigo maintained their fine home form with a 3-1 victory over bottom-of-the-table Granada as Iago Aspas shone again.

Aspas scored his 10th goal of the season in just 17 games to set the ball rolling before setting up 21-year-old Belgian Theo Bongonda to find the net for the first time this term.

Although Artem Kravets pulled one back, a stoppage-time effort from substitute Pape Cheikh Diop stretched winless Granada’s run to 13 games without victory.

fifa15guide – Brian Schmetzer praises Sounders for finding ways to win after West final

Jordan Morris scored the lone goal of the second leg as Seattle clinched their first-ever berth in the MLS Cup Final.

Seattle coach Brian Schmetzer praised the Sounders for finding different ways to win as they advanced to the MLS Cup final for the first time club history on Sunday.

Jordan Morris’ second-half goal secured a 1-0 win in the second leg of the Western Conference final in Colorado, and the Sounders advanced 3-1 on aggregate.

“It’s some of the intangibles,” Schmetzer said on ESPN after the game.”They never quit. Jordy [Morris] was beat up, tired. Nelson Valdez, the guys at the back, the whole team just kind of figures out ways how to win games. That’s their biggest strength.”

Although the Sounders have made the playoffs in every season they’ve been in the league, the MLS Cup berth comes in the most unlikely of seasons, which saw Seattle 10 points outside of the postseason picture when longtime manager Sigi Schmid was fired in July.

Then in August, star player Clint Dempsey was sidelined for the rest of the season with an irregular heartbeat.

But Schmetzer, a longtime assistant under Schmid, still managed to lead Seattle to a fourth-place finish in the West, though he declined to take credit on Sunday, instead thanking his staff and players.

“I had [Nicolas] Lodeiro come, we had Roman [Torres] come back, I had some inspired play by our captain now, Ozzie [Alonso]. Everybody pitched in,” Schmetzer said.

“[Erik] Freiburg, who was a late scratch today, busted his you-know-what to get us to this point, so it’s the whole entire team effort that has brought us here.”

The Sounders were crowned Western Conference champions on Sunday.

Schmetzer cited a 3-1 win at Orlando City on Aug. 7 as being instrumental to the team’s turnaround. From that point, Seattle won eight of their remaining 13 MLS games, losing just two.

“Each game is different. The LA game away, Orlando away, this game here against a tough opponent, they find ways to win,” Schmetzer said.

“I always hark back to that Orlando game when Deuce was still here, because Dempsey was a big part of the team. He’s still a big part of our team.

“They really felt that they could start winning some games after that performance. That was a strong performance for us.”

Morris became the second MLS rookie to score in both legs of a conference championship, joining the Galaxy’s Greg Vanney in 1996.

He credited an increase in confidence for helping him overcome a slow start to lead the team with 12 goals in the regular season.

“At the beginning of the year things weren’t going in. I was listening too much to the outside world,” Morris said. “I put that all away and once I got the first goal I kind of got the monkey off my back and I’m playing with more confidence. That’s the biggest thing.”

The Rapids took 16 shots to Seattle’s five, but the hosts failed to put any on target.

“We had a couple of good looks on goal,” Colorado coach Pablo Mastroeni said. “Those go in and it’s a whole different game. I thought we were in control of the game, we did everything we set out to do and to get beat on a strange play, that’s football.”

fifa15guide – Mixed emotions for Dedevbo and Nigeria

Nigeria’s players and coach were caught in a tangle of mixed emotions following their final Group B game against Spain at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Papua New Guinea 2016.

The African side could justifiably look back on a precious victory against the UEFA European Women’s U-19 Championship runners-up, coming out on top to finish level on points with their opponents and Japan. Having lost heavily to Japan on the opening day, however, Nigeria were left facing an early trip home due to their inferior goal difference.

That did not stop them from a lengthy bout of celebrations after the final whistle, with captain Chinwendu Ihezuo bringing her team-mates together before they congratulated their Spanish rivals in an admirable spirit of fair play. As for coach Peter Dedevbo, he was left nursing regrets after hoping to build on Nigeria’s runners-up finish two years ago.

After the game, FIFA.com spoke to the man in charge about his team’s performances at Papua New Guinea 2016 and their group stage elimination.

FIFA.com: Despite beating Spain today, your team have been knocked out of the tournament. What would you pinpoint as the reasons for your early exit?
Peter Dedevbo: In the first match against Japan, we lost 6-0. That defeat is very painful because it cost us qualification to the next round.

How did you motivate your players after that heavy defeat? Your team bounced back with wins against Canada and Spain.
When you lose the first match in a competition, you have to work very hard to get back in the saddle. You need to win, and that’s what we did. After the first game, we told the players they absolutely had to win the next two matches, and that message went over well. We tried to score as many goals as possible, but it wasn’t enough to keep us in the tournament.

Your players celebrated the win today even though it did not result in qualification.
They were pleased to have won because nobody will be disappointed with our performance when we return home. We still managed to win two matches.

You do not seem happy, on the other hand.
That’s true, because I hadn’t foreseen us getting knocked out. We wanted to go far in this tournament.

What do you think your players will have learned from this competition?
They know now that the first match is the most important in the whole tournament because it sets the tone for the rest. When you lose the first game, it’s difficult to get back in the running.
