Comment how your judgment changes with vulnerability

You open most 11 HCP hands (assume a Precision context).  

3 in Balancing position would be 15-17 with a good 6-card suit, for better or worse...

2 by advancer (cue bid) is LR or better.  New suit is constructive Non-forcing.  2N by advancer is 11-12 w/ stop in context.  

What should be the parameters for the 3 raise in terms of number of trumps, shape, and strength? To keep poll simple, please choose strength and length option for most likely hand, and discuss shape in comments...
