I'm trying to figure out if I'm Doing It Wrong, but for single-target dps, do Shadows have a lot of options? Well, options at level 29, that is.
I was trying to fight the level 30 elite in the Alderaan class quest chain and kept getting spanked, so I think they're not lying when they recommend it for level 31. Still, it seemed my options were:
Set I: tank stance for self-healing and mitigation
* kinetic ward for mitigation
* double strike for dps
* force wave, mind snap, and force stun for interrupting the elite's more interesting effects
* maybe use Force Breach for the debuff, although I need to doublecheck that the elite isn't immune
Set II: dps stance for more dps
* as above
* keep Force Breach DOT up.
...but I think this is a lose, because this isn't a dps race, it's a "how the hell do I live long enough" problem. Not to mention that all my talents are pointing towards tanking, not dps, so I think I want to exploit that.
It just feels weird to have zillions of abilities, but for single target, I'm basically ignoring 90% of them.
