scoundrel healers are pretty good, would rank them probably #1 for pvp and #2 for pve as far as healers go. Dont see many dps versions running around warzones, although I know they exist. Cant comment on how they preform tho.
Gunslingers tho. One of my fav's. I prefer the sab tree(middle tree). Its the middle of the road tree as far as mobility goes. Sniper you are a sitting turrent and dirty fighting is the most mobile of the gunslingers. I would suggest playing around in the tree's first.
Thanks for this too. Perhaps I'll try the other trees in gunslinger first, as you said.
The problem I have with the Smuggler is that it's too 'gadgety'. I don't remember Han Solo in the movies having so much gadgets - stealth and mobile cover etc. He just had a lot of luck, charm, a good ship and a good blaster!
