Also learning the basics of other classes will help when planning the upcoming fight. Little things like CC capabilities and such.
- Sorcerer/Sage can CC one mob for 60 secs.
- Assassin/Operative/Shadow/Scoundrel can CC targets while in stealth without entering combat.
Very true. Just make sure that the tank pulls aggro first, before the healer goes to CC something. Otherwise your chances of losing your healer are high.
