While that advice for PvP is spot on, if the OP is looking for a Cruiser tank for something like PUG Elite STFs then I would say a few adjustments are needed.
For one thing, I don't use something like Extend shields - as amazing as it is.
NPC enemies do not focus fire my escort allies, and in fact with 9/9 threat control its exceedingly rare for them to be shot at all.
What enemies do, is shoot me. My big, lumbering cruiser with 9/9 threat control.
So I need to be more selfish, since getting heals on even premades from EliteSTF is pretty rare.
My next point would be hatred for the Gal-X.
It works out to be about a 2 or 3 degree turn rate difference vs. the AC (final numbers, not base), which to be perfectly honest is all but irrelevant in PvE.
Anyone who thinks 2 degrees matters on an Elite STF is welcome to watch me just sit there and soak everything an elite tac cube can throw out with no outside healing of any kind.
Maybe that 2 degrees really matters in PvP, I haven't been too impressed with the state of this game's PvP so I don't really participate regularly or comment much on it.
