in short. anytime you can get more defense = better.
I have custom settings for "threat" and shield regen. Both of them still give me enough engine power to keep my defense maxed at 70%. I dont know if that's the max you can get for any setup, or if thats's the max i can get on my setup. But it looks like i will just keep on tanking on the move. Now i just have to tweak my BoFF abilities for even more damage reduction, and maybe look at my talents again (though i dont think my talents can get any better).
