Or is the healimg animations just not very flashy? I am mainly reffering to operative medic, which was the class I wanted to play. I just dont know, i was a healer for 3 years in WoW but i dont think I could roll one in swtor because of the dull healing animations.
The healing animations will be different than what you're accustomed to. Remember, WoW heals are based on magic, while 2/3 healers in TOR are based on technology. If you really want some flash, the Sith Inquisitor seems to have a little bit more of it (Like a shield made of force lightning).
That said, my main was a healer for nearly six years and I don't even notice Priest animations... However, as a tank in both, seeing a little droid summoned that heals me is way cooler than a little flash of light coming over me. Personal preference

Flashy.. well I they have there own style for sure. Its just different. Its not ZOMG particle effects like wow for sure as that just wouldnt fit the Sci Fi sytle of the MMO so maybe its just a getting into the genre thing? I admit I was like Hmm at first as well but once you get into it and embrace the healing with med packs, droids or tranc shots then its fun. Try out bounty hunter healing as they have some over the top healing combat animations, especially Kolto missle? I think its called and see what you think.
