Alacrity on smuggler healing gear(pvp)? why

Has someone else found a way that this helps? For me the energy systems is 100% the cap on how fast I can cast, I see no benefit from this personally

Cast 2 heals back to back hasted up and your not reneging energy at 100% anymore, great itemization on end game items when its on almost every piece. It seems to me like you did this only to make the sets different from the dps one

Eh. You can pace yourself by leaving a little gap between the casts. Calling alacrity useless / giving no benefit is just silly. Being able to kick out that heal faster is extremely helpful, especially in PvP, where someone living or dying can be up to that fraction of a second Alacrity cuts off, as well as making it bit harder for your heals to be interrupted.

That said, it's not the best stat for us, with crit, surge and power being lot more desirable.

Aim isn't useless for us either, but I am sure people would be pissed to see it on end game gear for smugglers. If its meant to be the best out there for pvp, give it the most useful stats

Not like it's any better for Scrappers with +accuracy on their kit, when tech attacks never miss to begin with.

The (default) stats in the PvP sets are pretty universally terrible, from what I've heard.
