Couple of notes from a 50 Sorcerer

We get a healer on Hoth, and so far (lvl 40) I prefer him. I'm lightning, and it's rare that I die with him out. With Khem, he dies too frequently. I tried to keep up with his gear for a while, but the healer made the choice easy. I could heal Khem through most fights, but frankly, I'd rather be pounding the mob and learning how my attacks work with procs instead of spamming healz all the way to 50. I'm anxious to get Xalek, but it sounds like I'll be sticking with healerboi until I can get everyone geared right. I had been running biochem, but I'm going to switch to Cybertech. That will make gearing these guys much easier.
Lemmings gear up... we've got them on the run... one final push to the cliffs and they're ours.... CHARGE!!!!

I was a part of the game testing program.... CE

@OP, do you know how our light side armor looks like? Im currently in doubt wether I should continue going light side because I visited the light side armor vendor in the imperial fleet today. Lots of grey and grey and more grey :/

Xalek's main advantage is that he looks so damn stylish.

His pole vaults, lightning bolts, force lightnings (and yeah, I've noticed him doing it, always thought it was his lightning strike or w/e, but if you tested it, I guess its not), lifetaps, etc, look pimptastic.

Any idea where to find him a decent weapon at 50? I have the electrostaff from Voss commendations on him, but I'd rather he have a double bladed lightsaber.

Get him a custom one, the pvp items are pretty easy to get. That way you can hand-me-down your own sabers by refitting the mods into it.

1. You will have less DS/LS points than at least some other classes. My friend (SW) was roughly 1500 more points ahead of me when he hit LS 5 at roughly lvl 47. At 50, I needed ~400 more points for DS 5. This took less than an hour of just blowing through low level flashpoints at rapid speed, so it's not a huge deal.

2. Xalex is a melee tank too. I thought because he has some ranged attacks he might be a ranged tank and I (thought) that everyone had a ranged tank. I was wrong. His stance/buff does increase his armor so that his light armor will be equivalent to heavy armor though.

3. I healed ~4 FPs and all the heroic 2/4s that we did (about 80% of them that we got) without any points in the healing tree. We managed to duo all the heroics 2/4s until Alder where we got a few done but it got a bit harder to do the 4s. After that we did a handful of 4s with the only other 2 people near our level, mostly on Hoth, but then outleveled them and skipped the rest of the 4s.

4. Me and my friend were both fully crafting and gathering while we leveled and had no problems buying our mounts and skills. I never bought any additional ranks of the melee attack that you use pre-AC, but I am sure I could have.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I will try to answer. Keep in mind I didn't level solo though.

Just a couple of questions for you if you don't mind answering...

1. Of the following stats which did you concentrate on the most (if you can list them in what order you would get them in that would be great!)? Crit rating, Alacrity rating, Power rating, Surge rating.

2. Did you solo heal all the 2/4 heroics and 4 man FPs (including companions)? If you did, was you basically spam healing your heals or was it buff with the shield and nuke away until you needed to pop your heals.

3. What relics do you typically use? Crit, Power, or Alacrity?

4. in the heroics/FPs how was your typical force consumption? Did you find yourself typically running out or because you was DPS specc'd things didn't live long enough for you to run out?

5. Have you any experience in the 8 mans and if so what role do you fullfill? DPS or healing?


I'm in almost the exact situation as you are, I'm currently leveling up with my brother and we do pretty much all the content together with just our companions. I'm currently heal specc'd but it just fills "lack-luster" to me. If I can heal him while being DPS specced I'd prefer it I think! Finally thanks for taking the time to respond to these questions!

Why can't I electrocute everyone I meet?

I use it a lot more than I thought I would. The stun component is great for keeping trash in their place and not beating on you or your comp.
