You're right, I missed that point when reading the post. LOL, yes scavenging during a boss fight is a fail
I've done this once or twice in sm mandalorian raiders with my healer lol
I was overleveled and overgeared and the tank was overleveled and overgeared and pratically could have survived with just my HoT and smallest no-energy-cost heal (needed maybe 3-5 bigger heals during the whole boss fight). So I was pratically stuck with dpsing and managing my hots, and I couldn't dps that much without burning too much energy, so I ended up scavenging turrets.
