Welcome to the Vengeance Juggernaut/Vigilance Guardian Discipline guide. This is a joint all in one Imperial and Republic terms guide. Throughout this guide we will cover many different aspects to increase your expertise in this specialisation, including concepts of gearing, rotation priorities, utilities, among many other aspects of your specialisation.
Vengeance Juggernaut Overview
When embracing the dark side of the Force, vengeance can be a powerful ally. With sustained and ruthless lightsaber thrusts delivered in the lithe Shien Form, the Vengeance Juggernaut increases damage without sacrificing defense-an ideal combination of tenacity and viciousness.
Vigilance Guardian Overview
Operating through a disciplned state of enlightened focus, the Vigilance Guardian defends by providing would-be attackers with a torrential offense.The Vigilance Guardian enters the fray nimble and alert,unleashing a whirlwind of lightsaber and Force attacksthat leaves any adversaries wondering what just happened-if they’re sill conscious.

How to Improve
As a Melee DPSer you spend a lot of time on your toes staying out of mechanics that is intended for DPS but also any cleave damage from bosses. Always practice moving and attacking, I call it improving your footwork I find the best way of getting this practice is doing PvP. PvP combat is always changing to be unpredictable which not only helps you improve attacking on the run but with when and how to use defensive cooldowns, and gives you better awareness of movement. Don’t just do PvP you should also get into any raids even SM raids to get a base understanding of the working mechanics. If you can always try to do the harder mode mechanics to keep practising them when you go into HM/NiM raids.When an encounter pull is unsuccessful don’t just run back and thinking everything is ok. Think about that pull and understand why it was unsuccessful. Ask yourself what you could have done better and what the team could have done better for a kill.
I highly recommend using Starparse at any time your running content. In PvP, it's a great way to get a sense of how your DPS is in any given short window. In PvE always have it open to track how your DPS is on each fight even if it’s a pug run. You should always try to get the highest DPS on each boss. In any unsuccessful encounter pull set goals for yourself to get higher DPS than the pull before.
You should always take some time to hit a parse dummy and work on rotations Take an hour or two every day to parse and set parsing goals for yourself.
About the Author and Thanks
Hi, I’m Andynul, I’m a Family and Friends beta tester for SWTOR since 2009, and have been playing SWTOR ever since. While I’ve been playing for a long time I didn’t start raiding much until near the end of 3.0. I have cleared almost all HM content on almost every class and cleared most of NiM on a Juggernaut. I want to thank Puddlejumper from <Failure>/<Sick Twisted Individuals> for kickstarting me into raiding, also want to thank Yolo from <Zorz>/<Failure> and Kalizo from <Failure> for the helpful advice and tricks to help make me become a better player. I also want to thank those who are in or associated with <The Obsidian Order> with the great time we spent on Revan and the great bagel memes with some hot Russian music.
