Creating a thread for discussion of the specs and playstyles of the healing mercenaries out there. I started mine this morning and got to 11 so far before I left for work.

Planning to be a healer all the way to 50 with a focus on PvE, but will definitely be doing some PvP healing as well.

My PvE Build

My PvP Build
THE FROSTBORN LEGACY

Arktyk - 50 Mercenary Arkael - 50 Commando Arktek - 26 Operative Arkaius - 24 Scoundrel

Does speccing Bodyguard slow your solo questing down? Obviously it doesn't matter at low levels, but in the 30's and 40's your damage potential will be a lot lower. Does using a dps companion compensate?

DPS companions do help. If it becomes a major problem, you can always just respec to Arsenal. I haven't seen any Bodyguards complain about being slowed down at all though.

Warden is a crap talent, anyway.

What happened to rapid shots bieng usable on players as a mobile heal... it appears to be bugged. the CD is working but no animation or actual heal goes off..... very disapointed if this is as intended.

I haven't noticed anything off with rapid shots with the CSC active.

What primary stats should I be going for on my gear as a Bodyguard? I heard cunning is big, but I need someone to guide me that actually knows what they are doing.

We dont use cunning, our main stats as a healing bounty hunter are:

Aim
Power
Critical
Surge
Endurance
Alacrity

In that order IIRC

This will be my final Spec. I honestly cannot wait to get it and learn to play with it.
