Posts: 17

What is the difference with Consular Shadow class in damage done to enemies when u use focus in offhand with proper damage respec like infiltration and Stalker gear and when u use shield generator in offhand. Is it big difference in dps when you use focus/shield?

I use Shadow Stalker PvP gear and focus in offhand.

The focus is for DPS specs (infiltration and balance).

Shield is for tank spec (kinetic combat). The shield gives you the ability to shield and absorb incoming attacks, however the shield generators usually have lower offensive stats. So basically, for your spec, use a focus in your offhand
