Just like the title states..

I'm trying to figure out if I should be using my PVP / Daily commendations for Medic or DPS gear. I would prefer to DPS but enjoy Combat Medic as well!

Thanks!

Ranged dps will always be wanted, since the encounters are considerably easier with it. Healers are always great too, though. I would get a feel for what is lacking in your groups before gearing up.
Chewie and I have gotten into pants more heavily guarded than this.

Yes. WE NEED MORE TROOPERS. Ranged dps is a must, and you guys are amazing.

After leading Hard Mode raids for the past few weeks, I would bring 100% ranged DPS if I could. With the current fights, 90% of them cause melee to have less dps uptime than ranged. However, this is expected and you usually just tough through it until you outgear the encounter and it's not an issue.

Arsenal/Gunnery spec is an exceptional spec due to its armor sunder. This also makes it very useful along with other weapon/kinetic damage specs such as Gunslinger/Sniper Sharpshooter/Marksmanship, Sentinel/Marauder Combat/Carnage spec, etc.

Commandos are awesome. Great dps, awesome debuff and amazing aoe. Also not reliant on cover. They have everything you could possibly want from a dps class.

Everything except an interrupt.
