Hm. Well, then I guess I'll scratch the idea of being a jedi guardian for the early going on the light side.
The friend of mine who is playing it likes the consular>sage and inquisitor>sorcerer classes and he is always commenting how for a sage a Trooper Vanguard would be the preferrable route to go as a tank as opposed to a Jedi Guardian because part of that is "broken"--especially as a newcomer late-bloomer.
