Guardian Builds (updated for 1.3)

Jedi Knights in SWTOR can become one of two advanced classes at level 10, a Jedi Sentinel (DPS Class) or a Guardian (Melee DPS/Tank Class). The Guardian uses heavy armor, shields and uses the force to tank or do heavy damage. Guardians have three trees to choose talents from: Defense (Tanking tree), Vigilance (DPS tree) and Focus (a shared DPS tree shared with the Jedi Sentinel Class).

Below I will list the best jedi guardian builds to use for jedi knight so you can play your class more effectively.
