Pretty annoying and overpowered. Don't think Bioware thought this one through. A shadow or sin can be almost dead, pop their combat stealth, cc you while in stealth, then come out of stealth and use their out of combat heal to heal to full just about. Awesomeness. I really really wish Bioware would do something about it. Not to mention they have 4 CC abilities.

Operatives/scoundrels can also do this? What's your point?
Bitte, Beefcakestud, Filet, Slant
Pansy, Choco
GM of <Wrath> and <Wrth>
The Ebon Hawk

Lets make a post like the op did.

A player can outplay me by using all the tools he have, I dont think Bioware saw that coming. Being outplayed is very overpowered plz nerf players' brain
Guarding a healer is not only the job the the skill ''guard''. It is also your job to stay around the healer to be a plague for the people attacking the healer.

Not only do I heal up in front of the scrub who let me do that to them, I also throw in a /flap or /chuckle maybe even a couple /sits.

there's no counter to that. it's not a matter of "letting you do" anything. a quick stealthscan is possible. a quick punt to catch you stealthed is possible. they both rely on educated guesses (luck). it's a cheap trick to take a pylon. and, imo, should be banned from duels, since "out of combat" = duel over. imo. imo means my opinion. don't blast me for having one. in a general wz fight, however, I see nothing wrong with it. I don't think it abuses any rules. stealthing away and healing up out of combat is what stealth classes should be able to do always (not counting mara/sents as stealth classes). thanks. bye.

No counter? It's called a cc breaker
You deserve to get /flap after letting someone do that to you by using your breaker on something stupid like spike or electrocute

Decide on rules before dueling someone?

This...and you have to realize being able to leave combat is part of the stealth class toolkit. If you told me (Deception Assassin) I can't use my vanish, I'd have to say you can't use rail shot or force scream or whatever is important to your class.

It refreshes my damage reduction/force regen and finishes the cooldown on blackout and allows me to use spike. I use and abuse force cloak every chance I get.
