What do you guys think of the new tree? I think that some of our new talents, e.g corrupted speed, combined with force barrier are going to improve our survivability quite a lot (cooldown on force speed ends when force barrier has finished chanelling, and then fadeout and corrupted barrier etc.)

I'm still downloading the PTS (nearly there...) but has anyone who is on there managed to play around with our trees yet? I was fiddling with SWTOR spy, came up with this:

(noob building talent trees, lol). Anyone who's on there got any suggestions or tips for corruption? I had a point left over so I dumped it on dark resilience as unnatural preservation plays an important part in our survivability imo and so a 15% bonus should help a lot :P

You will want Sith Purity.

Lots of nasty dots and roots (like from sentinels) are physical. You'll want to be able to cleanse them, and keep in mind that your cleanse is one of the few heals you can do while moving. But it only heals when specced.

Empty Body also helps your survivability by a surprising amount. Rather than having a self-heal on a 30 second cooldown be 15% more powerful, put that point in Empty Body and heal yourself for 4/8% more all the time. And yes, that boost to all healing received applies to Unnatural Preservation as well.

I would take 2 points out of Seeping Darkness to make these changes (You have Recklessness for when you need crits), and 1 point from either Dark Resilience or Sap Strength. Or possibly only take away 1 point of Seeping Darkness and get rid of both DR/Sap Strength.

I'll have a go with these specs when this damn PTS finally finishes downloading and let you know how I got on.

Yes, since the spec I used got one of its core abilities moved HIGH up in a different tree, I will probably be testing your second spec to see how it holds up.

I'm waiting for PTS to finish downloading myself

Get rid of fade out and put it into seeping darkness IMO. As a healer the amount of times you'll be impaired and need to move will be minuscule, but the amount of time 2% crit comes into play can be a huge factor. You also have a 38/7/2 build, this is impossible. The point in corrupted speed is also useless for the same reason as fade out. I'm speaking from a pure PvE side of things, this build would suck in PvP compared to a bit more of a hybrid healer build.

Is pretty much (From what i can see) the only real spec that should be taken for PVE.

No, no I don't think so. Lightning Barrier is so garbage it's not worth the 2 points, Reverse Corruptions is pointless unless you plan on Consuming yourself like a mofo. Corrupted Barrier is debatable. Sorc bubble was only healing my 29,000 HP Sorc for 312 I think which isn't a lot. Sure it adds up over time, but only if you're lucky to not get hit..... though on the other hand what else are you going to put 2 points into to get to the next tier.

I personally think this one is better.

So, In an ops sitution you would drop Reverse Corruptions and take.....Sap Strength... With you cant use on an Ops boss.... Yeah.. OK

As for bubble healing... Its 1% per second... free 15% hp... go figure

An additional 10% on Barrier is to good to pass up, it just helps so much when bubbling the ops....

Playing around a bit with PvP healing (lol, pretty much impossible - run in, BAM, 30k smash), the combinations you can get here are a lot better.

Predominately in Hutball, when you're being beaten down on by a sentinel or shadow it's fun to use your static barrier and get the healing from that, pop resurgence, use force speed into a flame trap and then use the new ability (can't remember the name) for the full duration. After which you can force speed off and heal yourself up.

The healing buffs are definitely noticeable too. Unnatural Preservation has gone from around ~2k to ~5k and the heal on overload got me for 5k the other day too. Instant revivification isn't as useful in PvP as everyone is constantly moving, however it's still a nice touch

Sap strength is a big no, reverse corruption is a big yes, but I do agree that it is arguable that sith defiance and lightning barrier are interchangeable, you are looking at self survival over raid survival however. Raid wise lightning barrier does more, HM FP I'd argue that sith defiance is a better choice though.
