Healing. I can heal and sorta DPS at the same time. I don't have to stand around for a portion of the fight doing nothing waiting for healths to go down. I can DPS some, too. I like it so far (16 sorcerer). Might need to respec my 20 sage to give it a shot, too.

From what I've seen, that stays consistent even at 50. In some of the raid fights, it's important for healers to throw in some DPS when they can, enrage timers are tight. It's neat.

Yeah, it's great. Until I'm on my BH and I'm spamming your ass with ridiculous damage that you can still easily heal through and still dps me! Shit needs to get pvp nerfed.

I couldn't disagree more, no one can calmly heal through Tracer Missile spam, it absolutely wrecks.

I do enjoy healing with my BH.

There have been numerous IAs and SSs I've ran into that I can spam all fuckin day on and they'd never go below 80% health. I get over heated before they run out of energy and then they just kill me. Shit needs to get nerfed in pvp. Also, being able to heal the ball carrier through five people unloading on him is stupid.

So kill healers? I dunno man, the problems you are having, I'm just not seeing, at all. Healing is already reduced by 30% in pvp, and Sentinels / Marauders can reduce it by another 20% with Crippling Throw.

I just discovered that it's faster to unsummon your companion and resummon than to Seethe until he's healed. He always resummons at full health. And it only takes 1.5 sec to resummon. Hopefully, when they allow macros, they will give a button to do that (and therefore a configurable hotkey) so I don't have to use the mouse.

I might have to try some of my other classes again soon.

I did a few quests on Balmorra on my Sorc while I was at lunch today. One quest completer said something pretty funny. This is what he said as best as I can remember it. Right before, he said he will "gas the mines".

"There's nothing like gassing the mines and watching rebels running outside directly into our own battalion's blasters. Well, sunrises are beautiful, too, but you have to get up early for those."

I just about fell out of my chair on that one!

One of the funnier comments I've heard was from Gault, a BH companion. "Alderaan's not going anywhere."

I force persuaded a guy today and when another NPC asked how I did it, I force persuaded him and told him it was not important. I love force persuasion.

My top char is a BH on Alderaan. After going through the prior planets with Mako healing, I figured every other companion would be useless. Well, that was until I went after a few groups of mobs and realized I needed monster dps instead of battles of attrition. Gault has really mowed enemies down.

In regards to the OP, I think they made SWTOR as a solo PvE game first and will spend the next few years palying with PvP balance until they get something good. It seams the classes can do a lot of different things which is awesome for questing, but a nightmare to balance for PvP.

In the rare case I PvP, I like being a dedicated healer and my side usually wins. This may be atypical as my server is one of the quieter ones and few know how to PvP.

Did my first Operation last night, we cleared Eternity Vault on Hard Mode. It was a lot of fun, Soa, the final boss, was an especially epic and awesome fight. I really thought the overall atmosphere of the raid was extremely well-done.

My only complaints are the stupid bugs that kind of add up over time and take away from the experience. But for the most part, it was a positive one.

I forgot about that.

If you're looking to make a goofy character, Smuggler is for you. I'm enjoying the ridiculous choices that can be made.

Last night I made 49. I only JUST realized you can rotate the galaxy map on the astrogation console by holding right-click and dragging. I see no need for it, but the option's there.

I'm leveling up with a very spread out spec. Here it is. Telekinetic Balance is, by far, the best talent for leveling. Telekinetic Throw does more damage per time than any single target that is spamable and it's so cheap that it can be spammed for a long time even without Psychic Barrier. Heal talents to heal my pet during combat. The Telekinetics powers for Telekinetic Defense and longevity.

Ding 50. Prolly try a smuggler now. I tend to dislike the stealther classes, so I'll try the one that's the Sniper counterpart.

Started my smuggler last night. Only made it to 6 or so. I'm gonna try to get as much orange armor as I can as early as I can and just upgrade the mods on the way up. More control of my stats that way.
