Possible Bug with (Trooper) Elara and Rewards?

Why are most rewards for Elara buffing her Aim and Cunning?? I thought she was a Trooper (healer)?? not a smuggler....

Or am I just assuming she is a trooper?

All her stuff should be Aim. As a trooper you shouldn't be getting any quest rewards with cunning. ALL your companions (including both droids) are heavy armor Aim.

And yes, it's an itemization screwup with Elara, they changed her dominant stat over just before the game got out of beta but didn't fix the quest rewards.

It's sorta like the whole techblade/techstaff thing. You can't find orange ones because they were added so late they're not completely populated in the drop tables- and won't be till 1.2.

I think the problem with orange melee weapons that use the Aim stat is melee weapons don't use Barrels (there are no hilts with Aim).

I'm curious if this issue will be resolved in 1.2 or if they're just going to put 'orange techblades' in with no thought to what needs to go in them :P

I don't see it as an actual bug because all heals are tech abilities. They thus benefit more from cunning bonus than aim (a priori), but as aim is her primary stat they should be virtually the same for her. At one point I stacked on some more or less equal items with aim and cunning and let her do her thing in the same combat situation, it showed no actual difference in her performance.

A bug I did notice with her is no reputation gains at all on Quesh. Reported that with ticket but have yet to see an answer (as usual lol).

Thanks guys.... didnt think about cunning benefiting her heal abilities (which is what most of us use her for I would think).
