Was on this toon yesterday and was constaintly dieing. Toon was a level 20 attacking level 19-20 NPCs on leveling quests. I did notice that every time i did a lighting attack, that it didn't do a thing to the NPCs health at all. And that includes all lighting attacks. My companion did a little damage but died also just before I did. These NPCs were just regular NPCs, no Elites. I got heals for other players, but only one for me, what good It did. That and a medpack didn't do a thing.

A) I would check your gear and Khem's gear. If it's not all 18 or so green or better, I would update it. This can be done on the cheap through the GTN. Most sell off green gear for less than 1k a piece. If you see a blue or purple really cheap, grab those instead but don't worry too much about blues and purples until later on when you have many more credits. Also get an earpiece, implants and relics as well if you can afford them. If you like pvp, you can quickly obtain some nice level 20 blue earpiece and implants. I believe they are 310 comms a piece, that's about 930 comms, roughly 6-10 matches/2 hours tops.

B) You probably have lowbie medpack for your level. Somtimes the medical droid lists the higher tier medpacks at the bottom of the list rather than listing them in a row at the top where the lower level medpacks are.

C) As far as your healing abilities, you can use all your heals on yourself as well. Not sure if you were aware of that because of that comment you made about having only 1 heal for yourself.

Send in Khem to grab all the aggro (with updated tank gear), stand back and heal him as necessary while throwing out a few shocks/FLings if he's looking good = profit.

I concur with everyone else... check your gear, and check your companions gear. If you are wearing say on average level 15 gear and trying to take on a level 19. or 20 npc as a level 20 you are probably not going to fair well especially if that NPC/MOB is a strong or elite.
I don't care who you are. I don't care if you are male, or female, black, or white, gay, or straight, religious, or non-religious, old or young. I care about 3 things. Can you tank properly? Can you DPS properly? Can you heal properly?

Might be a spec issue. At level 20, sorc get access to either death field or chain lightning, which are very painful AoEs for PvE mobs.

What I CAN tell you is dps sorc are one heck of a killing machine in PvE. At lower levels, your bubble also is RELATIVELY more powerful for the content you fight.

Make sure to keep the thing handy.

Also what do you mean only one heal to yourself? Isn't Unnatural Preservence 32 or something? You should have Dark Heal and Dark Infusion at your level, and resurgence if heal spec.

Nope it's level 18. I don't blame you though if your like me and leveled a sorc almost a year ago. We didn't have the luxury of this ability.

I guess I could understand why the OP thought those other two heals weren't for him. I believe the tooltip say's "Heals friendly target" so perhaps he thought that meant it had to be someone else. You can be the 'friendly target' as well.

This definitely sounds like a gear problem, or, a not keeping up with your skills problem. Either way, if you've hit 20, and feel like putting in a little effort, you can get a full set of 20s gear, minus the weapon and focus, by running enough PvP to purchase the 20s PvP gear. Full Blues at your level are probably a lot better than what you're wearing. You can get a better weapon from PvP at 24, I believe, and, by buying a second chestpiece, you can strip out the mods, and make your focus equal to your level, too. You'd just need another crystal for it.
Stealth? It's nice, I guess. But so is flinging people off bridges.

Ya, as far as I go i got it at level 44 :P leveled sorc healer pre Dark bending nerf, and guy went to freezer a while then. Only got it out when I decided to try the DPS, and from that point it was content faceroll.

By far the dps spec 50 I have the less trouble soloing PS and LR with.

As a lol, also "tanked" OE with talos out, and that went surprisingly well with Unatural preservation and the bubble.

Sorc issus are mostly PvP based, and there are worries about single target damage for higher difficulties damage timer. As far as solo PvE goes, one heck of a killing machine, as said

Sorc in pvp are absolute garbage at the moment. Marauders and sentinels are so over powered they cut through us like butter.
