RE: Tank Abilities List
There's patch notes out that will affect this list.
Here's the changes, I'll update my list as I get more details. (I've added my notes in brackets)
Saber Ward now additionally reduces the damage taken from Force and Tech attacks by 25% for the duration.
Blade Turning, which causes the first two seconds of Saber Ward to increase melee and ranged defense significantly, has been added.
Lash Out, which grants a change to return Focus when used in Soresu Form per point invested, has been added. (I know, not a mitigation ability but worth noting)
Lightning Recovery now reduces the cooldown of Force Speed per point invested, and no longer reduces the cooldown of Deflection.
Kolto Overload is now available to all Bounty Hunters.
Carbonite Shield has been replaced by Oil Slick. (goobye Carbonite Sheild?)
Combust is now triggered by Flame Burst instead of Flame Thrower. It reduces the target’s damage dealt per point invested. (makes the damage reduction single target instead of AoE)
Empowered Armor has been renamed “Rebraced Armor” and increases armor rating per point invested. (minus damage reduction, plus armor)
A new talent Shield Vents increases shield chance and gives shield results a chance to vent heat.
A new talent Ablative Upgrades increases absorption per point invested and increases the effectiveness of Kolto Overload.
A new talent in the Advanced Prototype tree called Power Armor reduces all damage taken per point invested. (may not be able to get this in a tank build)
A new talent in the Firebug tree called Energy Rebounder grants a chance to reduce the cooldown of Energy Shield when damage is taken per point invested. (may not be able to get this in a tank build)
A new talent in the Firebug tree called Automated Defenses causes critical hits to grant a chance per point invested to reduce the cooldown of Kolto Overload and Thermal Sensor Override. (may not be able to get this in a tank build)
