Our self healing was pretty good. I dont like nerfs, but I surive so well I didnt have to worry about getting focused on and still do well. I dont think it was a massive advantage, but it was nice and now I'll just have to worry about positioning more.

I guess the times of padding my stats and letting a marauder whack on me all game while I spam surgical probes are over.

The sorcerer trying to get off his heal at the speed of a fat kid running a marathon is not laughing.

If I blow all my CDs, in full BM with one piece of WH- full heal spec with all my +heal talents, with a 2.3 second DI- I can get a crit of 5.1k healing tops.

Just to put it in perspective. That said- I don't think ops needed a nerf, I think sorcs/mercs needed a buff- not to amount healed, but maybe another HoT or some sort of instant, and take .5 seconds off of DI OR, put back the 1 second reduction with force bending- the current 30% off cost is freaking useless.

It's 15% not 30%. It's 15 seconds if no one blow up that shield that absorb only about 1k damage.

This is a nerf against scoundrel/Ops. AGAIN. Like every patch.
I believe the OP was talking about concelmeant rather then healer.

Is 3% more or less than 9%? Also, LOL at anybody who takes Med Shield. I mean, seriously.

With that said, lose the healers and the dps goes down. Want them medals? Nurture a healer rather than complain about them. Try doing 500k damage without a healer on the field. You cant. I have seen many healers respec because the survivability is low for a healer against any solid crew.
Missed my ponit.

Healers scale VERY well with gear. A full WH geared healer (especially ops) can heal through at least one, if not two dps. A poorly geared healer, can't even heal through one poorly geared dps.

Its not an issue nerfing ops healers, but rather an issue that healers in general suffer more than other class rolls due to being undergeared.

These OPS healer nerfs were targeted at those in BM/WH gear, not the ones in recruit/pve gear.

I'm just a MMO noob, but from my experience, or lack there of, I've noticed Ops seemed to be the best healers.

For example:

I was a powertech in a match where I put my guard buff on an Op and all he did was heal myself and himself the entire match. I was taking mobs of 3-4 players down. I understand most of the people we were playing against were probably more noobish than myself but still he was a level 34 getting over 300K healing. that is impressive.

I play my sorc at level 50 geared up and solely heal the entire match and can only get to that height. I've played against Ops healers many times one on one and still never have taken one down, even as my Powertech. It's like trying to capture Sasquatch.
