Very nice write up, thanks a bunch. I wanted to make a healing character as my first alt and wasn't sure exactly which I would like best. Really looking forward to BH healing now.
What sort of gear are you referring to that increases regen for Sage/Sorc?
i wanna play a sage for the healing, and a shadow for the double lightsaber and tanking grrrrrrrr
wish we could change ACs
Wow... gotta say this has made me bump my Sage from 2nd Alt up to first , but at the same time, question if it should be a sage or an operative . One question though... you have me interested about Tactical Advantage... afaik it's a 2% damage and healing buff yes? I didn't actually realised it stacked... does the 2% stack as well, so pooling stacks is worthwhile, or is it a flat 2% whenever you have any number of stacks, so spending stack as and when needed isn't 'punished'
Check out the blog I wrote for LEGENDARY indie label Flicknife Records:
Blog 7 is here! Containing a sample chapter from the upcoming book SHARP! Flicknife Records and Other Adventures.
Excellent write up, now I am even more torn between operative and sorcerer.
Thank you for this! I was really torn on an IA or BH healer and even though SI sounds awesome, I think I'll go with IA.
Upper Hand is a 2% buff, and does not stack with itself, I believe; it also has to be talented in order to grant the healing buff, or it did when I was last on my Scoundrel.
Nice read, I've been debating Mercenary & Operative, but I like energy more than heat. Even if they are technically the same thing. I also like that Ops can stealth and carry rifles and blades instead of 2 pistols. Even though BH's wear heavy armor which usually looks better, I decided on rolling Op on release because they will be underplayed (well at least I know Bounty Hunter WON'T be underplayed.
Kolto probe (operative) can be stacked 2 times and it can be placed on multiple targets.
if a jedi sage heals, does he have his lightsaber active? silly question perhaps, but my choice of profession depends on it :-) (i.e. artifice with new lightsaber colours or sinthweave if the lightsaber is mostly holstered)
Just did a quick look on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KK0uOmYE6Bo
Got to around 25 seconds and the LS is out as the player heals.
Here is another one playing Hutball: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgW9GvZOhqI

I've only tried IA for a few hours, but I really liked the play style. I don't like the fact that the Medic is tied down to the Operative class. I like dealing damage at range so concealment is out. I really wish Medic has been bundled with the Sniper
If I wanted to be a full time healer and an offspec damage dealer, is Lethality a spec that can stand on its own?
Has anyone found a list of "spec styles" that I could take a peak at? Something like:
- Imperial Agent Operative (Lethality): Damage Dealer (DoTs), Prefers Close Range Combat
- Sith Inquisitor Sorcerer (Lightning): Damage Dealer (Direct Nukes) Prefers Long Range Combat
http://www.torhead.com/class/an2lnUU. Right now it's on BH merc. You can go to the others by hovering over the Bounty Hunter directory of the: Database>Classes>Bounty Hunter>Mercenary
OH, my mistake, doesn't differentiate among talent tree...Don't know if someone has come up with one yet. The info for that can be gleaned by looking at the talent trees :\ There are trees at http://db.darthhater.com/skill_calc/...ight/guardian/. Different ACs on the bottom.
