Jedi Shadow Builds (updated for patch 1.3)

Jedi Consulars in SWTOR can become one of two advanced classes at level 10, a Sage (Healer / DPS Class) or a Shadow (DPS / Tank class). The Shadow uses a double-bladed lightsaber for defence and DPS. Shadows have three trees to choose talents from: Balance (DPS tree), Kinetic Combat (Tank tree) and Infiltration (a shared DPS tree shared with the Sage Class).

Below I will list the best shadow builds to use for your Jedi Consular so you do not have to waste valuble play time figuring out what shadow builds work :)

If you wish to submit a shadow build please email it to admin@shadowbuilds.com. When you email in your spec please have a link to your build, clearly list what it is for and any other relevant information I should know about this shadow build.
