mercs overheat after about 4 rapid scans maybe 5, and you try being a healer and shoting bright green snot which EVERYONE knows is heals across a WZ, see how long you last before your focused. i would love so much to heal on my merc but the only person im ever healing is myself while im gang raped by at least 3 players and i don't last very long. crunch the numbers instead of just seeing and crying and youl find that merc healers are mathematically inviable for pvp. Further more support cylinders do like 5-800 per GC big woop its our passive heal not like we can do it to everyone at once while doing other abilities and/or stealthing ehem Ops ehem or just put HOTs on everyone and a big healing circle of life down and then red bare whoever we like. its not like we can just sit on a node and spam down our health and heal it up infinitely like every healer sorc i have seen does. you need to get the fck real kid you know nothing.

also what do you think heavy armour does? and i will gladly trade it for the mara/sin's invincibility, or entrench, or an in combat stealth, not like we have offhand shield generators, leap and pulls and twice the damage from elemental/energy abilities like rail shots and space marine melters ehem-PTs-ehem/

I think what this thread is translating to is "QQ our free kills will be able to fight back soon OMG now who will we get to attack :O"

This thread is a satire of Bioware's incompetence of giving the least effective healer a hand while the other 2 healers are becoming stronger and stronger.
2.0 gives the Mercenary Healers so little that it borders bully while e.g. the Sorcerer almost gets back to the stage he was pre-1.2 and don't even make me start talking about the sugar flavored unchargable Surgical Probe stealthers that get to play Indiana Jones in 2.0.

There have been several detailed threads on how Mercenaries could be buffed/other classes could be nerfed so the regular Mercenary healer wouldn't rely on a good tank holding his shaking hand throughout whole warzones. I honestly didn't want to jump the train of whiners (although it's justified that they whine) and instead give people a push into the same direction but from a different angle.
I would even offer help in coding those tweaks and balancing them or at least remove the inferior feeling you have while playing a Mercenary healer..

Everyone taking my original post seriously should read up on sarcasm and - while at it - common sense.
See it as it is. A criticism of class balance.
