I know.. My guess is that it was a GF bug.

Gotta be a glitch with GF.

I notice that on my Mercs and Mandos, GF sometimes has both the "Damage" and "Heal" boxes ticked, but that class can be either, so it makes sense. (I've learned to always double-check that as a result )

I imagine this happens for hybrid damager/tanker classes, too?

But Scouperatives can't even be tanks, soooo....
Guys/Gals, could you please start queuing for real Flashpoints again?

My sniper - and probably many others - already tank better than some "tanks." Haven't tried it much on my scoundrel, I just stealth if I pull threat.

If only they hadn't removed those patron armorings....

See, due to the cover mechanic, I imagine agents/smuggs would actually be pretty affective against ranged enemies, since if you don't do an action and just stay in cover, you take literally no damage from the majority of their attacks. This wouldn't work in practice because there is no aggro management...but I've always wanted to try it for fun.

I doubled checked my queued roles and verified that it was set to healer (as I have to reason to ever change it, especially not to tank, lol). So I was at a loss, and quite embarrassed as everyone was rightfully pissed. I say my apologies and quit the group.

Still have no idea what happened. But I was the weird one for once.
It's not possible for an operative to queue as a tank role at all. the box is greyed out and never clickable since you dont have a tank role in any tree.

I had an assassin tank with 2% higher DR than my operative go down in a fp because he was an idiot and grabbed every single mob in 100 meters, was taking over 3000 damage per second, kept him alive for over 20 seconds then when he died he proceeded to ***** at me for being a bad healer while me and a marauder tanked everything else still alive without taking even 1/2 the damage he did.

Also a sorc on that same run who refused to respect my cc's and any thing else i did for that matter. He stopped getting heals about 2/3 of the way through the fp. Fortunately me and the mara were more than a match for the fp.


Ya those two went on ignore.

Was just in a 55 HM, healing. Had a mara in group, 38k hp. Thought it would be grand.
First boss, tank DCs (droid in Hammer Station), sorc dps (28k hp) and the mara. Immediately the sorc takes the boss' aggro. Mara didn't use camouflage, and never gained aggro off the sorc. I even extricated the sorc (which lowers threat, doesn't it?)
He also used bloodthirst on CD. Like, even in between trash packs. The whole bloodthirst spent running to next pack.
then my internet uppity and goes and I miss the rest of the fun.

I don't want to defend the tanks behaviour but the DR part is nothing special, I have a higher DR from armor on my juggernaut even in DPS equip than I have on my my Assa tank
