Er. This is my second mmo ( Played WoW for a week ) And I decided to play a commando for my first character. So heres my question.

How do you play the commando?

I'm only level 13 but I've settled into this role of Playing DPS for my healer and minorly tanking. Is this how your supposed to play a commando?

DPS and back up/support heals is how I play mine in groups. For solo I just pew pew and heal myself when needed.

I play a commando only while online with a buddy and I heal us both while we just pound out the dps. It is much easier to have self heals to work around having to group. Trooper is great for this.

So just heal myself while unleashing a hail of bullets?

Use your healing companion when you get her, and use her all the way to 50. No need to heal yourself, except in exceptional circumstances.

You could do what Dunnik say, but I use Arik because I'm spec'd combat medic and I like to keep using the same skills whether or not I'm healing in an instance. The fact of the matter is that I don't spend enough time healing in instances or PVPing so this is how I make up for it right now. Lvl 32.
