Pfomo nobody takes you seriously anymore and nobody cares either, so just stop. Also this is a class guide not a suggestion thread so take your idiocy and unbalanced ideas somewhere else and stop derailing NeNiMel's guide.
k thx bye!

Wait what?

There's a parse of me solo healing Styrak in HM 8man. Notice how I destroy your numbers yet there's half the people to be affected by kolto residue/kolto jets.

7k views that is really awesome

I have been doing a bit of cosmetic changes to the guide to make it easier to navigate around in the different section.

With the coming changes in 2.6, I expect there to be a quiet few changes to the mercenary healing, which will affect talents and most likely rotation too. I have had a look on the changes on the PTS, but I would like to try them out on the live server, before I make changes to the guide.
I look forward to have a healthy discussion about talents and rotations after the patch

Okay I have just been trying out the changes to the bodyguard skill tree and I think that the most optimal for PvE must be something like this: (Torhead is a bit slow so just did a screencap for now)

I still need some time to figure out the most optimal way of handling the new Kolto Shell during the fight.
Prefight and in all transition phases, you should put kolto shell out on as many people as possible, since there is not much healing needed in these phases and you might aswell prepare for the coming damage.

What do you think?

Personally I wouldn't spec into Cure Mind, every major cleansable dot/mechanic is doable with untalanted cleanse. I'd rather put that 1 point into 2/2 Powered Insulators. The only fight I can think of where the healing from Cure Mind would be more than the damaged mitigated with +2% damage reduction is Nefra.

Breaking down to boss fights where Cure Mind could/should be better:
Nefra - yes, lot of cleansing
Draxus - yes, for the corruptor dot (no if you trust your dpsers)
Grob'Thok - who cares (but porbably no, since there is no cleanse here afaik)
Corruptor 0 - probably no, too much damage taken and only 1 thing to cleanse
Brontes - same as above
Bestia - nothing to cleanse
Tyrans - nothing to cleanse
Calphayus - maybe for 1st future phase add dots? Idk if that's cleansable
Raptus - nothing to cleanse
Council - damage taken > number of death marks

The less you need to heal yourself the better. The other 2 healing class has +x% healing recieved talents for that, we only have the high damage reduction.

The anticipation of murdering my colleagues with the exploding droids between Draxus and Grob'Thok will cause me to forget to respec. So, 2% damage reduction and Cure Mind for DF, and 4% damage reduction for DP.

The guide is now updated for 2.6. I have busy with a lot of stuff, so it took a little while before I had the time to make the changes.
I have not had so much time to try out the changes, as I would have liked so please let me know what you think!

All your feedback is invaluable for guide to be useful.
