I am newer to the class and I guess just a bit spoiled by my scoundrel. I love the way commando heals and actually enjoy it more but I don't get whats with the Trauma probe. Is it the scaling that pushes it to a point of needing the 1 target limitation? Do you guys feel it would be completely OP to allow 2 or 3 to roll on different targets? It is just an extra cushion but I assume there is something that would make it be over the top OP otherwise it would be different right?

when the game first came out, it cost 0 ammo, so it needed to be limited in that way.


since the ammo cost was added, i've always felt it should be allowed to be on multiple targets (even if there's still an overall limit)

but that said, it's probably the most effective heal in the game because it will never heal unless the target takes damage and heals an incredible amount vs the cost/cast.

granted it only ticks at most every 2s, so in terms of HPS, it's not very high; it's just really effective.
so if it could be set up on a lot of targets at once, it could be a fairly high HPS heal (assuming a lot of raid-wide damage) in addition to being very effective, so that's a possible consideration.

i'd still like to see it going out on multiple targets though. i'd like to know if the devs ever considered/tested this out.

I'm guessing they don't play commando/merc healers so no.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

I would like to see if able to be placed on 2 additional targets, for a total of 3.

I would also like this, but I don't think BW will implement this without a reduction in its heal.

Why? Its not like Commando healing is close to overtaking the overall output of Sages or Scoundrels.

Sages can bubble an entire team; Scoundrels can keep rolling HoTs on an entire team. Commando has 1 pre-emptive heal, and its limited to a) the target taking damage and b) only a single target.

Because for some reason bioware has the mentality that commando is overpowered.
