I have a full set of campaign gear for my scoundrel healer, all in the Smuggler Legacy gear, and i'm wondering...if i get my slinger to 50, would it be viable to use that set of gear for both smugglers, or would i need to switch out enhancements and mods, etc. I'm stacking power, crit, and surge with my healer, so i know i'd need to find some accuracy somewhere. i was hoping to gain that through implants and earpieces, however. thanks!

Throw some Power in there, and yeah, it would probably work for both.

Smuggler gear is a bit more adaptable, seeing as Smugglers don't have a tank variant, and the fact that healers largely benefit from the same stats that damage dealers do. Though from what I've heard, there is a bit more of an emphasis on Alacrity for healers. Not to stack it like crazy, mind you, but that is has its uses.

And really, Sawbones is the only oddball amongst the Smuggler spec's... Other than that, it's all DPS baby!

Gassy! Yup, go alacrity. Way important, and way underrated. I also believe crit is absolutely vital to Scoundrel healing, and also a bit underrated. When you consider that Upper hand (the 'buff' that makes over half your heals ussable) is granted by criting your DoT, I can't figure why ANYONE wouldn't bring your crit to at LEAST 35% pre-buff...
But that is a discussion for another time. Sorry OP!

As far as Smuggler healing, like Gassy said. You could back WAY off on Alacrity and a bit off Crit, and Powerpowerpower/surgesurgesurge it up.
