it didn't even heal me in the warzone earlier so idk where your info is coming from.

Testing. It still heals for 50% of your max health, it still gives the 2.5k and 5k healing medal. It simply gets consumed by using. So if you are so hardcore to farm it between every warzone you can still use it once per warzone.

It works, but is consumed on use.

I suppose if you hung out on hoth and just used it and the end of the match to get the buff back then ran up the mountain you could get medals. Honestly I didn't use it for medals, I used it because it took 30s to get out of combat and the faster I was back in the better, standing around an extra 10s to heal hoping nobody decides to do anything about me was rather punishing for non-healing or stealthing class.

One simple phrase: Can not be used while stealthed.

Problem solved, now shadows/ops can't use it cheap-ily in the middle of combat by using their vanish ability.

As a marauder, it was actually kind of nice to get a bit of hp back after the 20+ sec it takes to remove yourself from combat sometimes. You could also make it so you can't r-click the hydrated buff off of you.... Then you couldn't spam it (even tho it had a 10 sec cd)

But no, breaking this item for everyone is a much better idea.

Also, ~100 extra valor per wz must've really made someone upset... guess that's breaking the game when things like operations or master looter don't even function properly. Same thing goes for surge (though its a bit off topic), glad you messed with that instead of making alacrity useful.

great job.

long story short... Why not use your brains for once before just breaking things? just one time guys...
Bioware didn't break anything .... they actually fixed something that allowed Assassins/Shadows/Operatives/Scoundrels to dramatically instaheal themselves in the middle of fight just because their in-combat stealth ability took them out of combat for a few seconds.

You're obviously upset because you didn't abuse this item the shockfrozen water .. u just used it to get a few extra medals to get some much needed valor / commendations

Maybe Bioware plans on making the Warzone Medpacs or the Rakata Medpacs give you those medals somewhere down the line?? Maybe .... Maybe not ... but its just a few medals that you've lost no big deal.

What some of these stealth classes were doing in warzones was absolutely ridiculous. All because of pure shockfrozen water and no amount of medals is worth that.

I don't even understand why it was healing to begin with. You're really concerned that they fixed an obvious exploit?

Again, if DPS classes are going to get an automatic 2 healing medals, where's the item that instantly deals 5K damage, so my healing Operative can get the 2.5K and 5K damage medals?

The sense of entitlement for something that was obviously not working as intended is amazing.

I love rumors! Facts can be so misleading, where rumors, true or false, are often revealing.

its been broken since beta? no... it got *****ed and moaned about so much that they appeased the masses. You realize every char could get this right? it's not exclusive to non-healers or anything... merely helpful.


did i survive before i knew about it? offf course.

am i still gonna murk you noobs all day? of course you idiots

was it nice to not spend 40 sec getting out of combat and healing up? yes... no whining, and i certainly am not crying like the babies who wanted this item removed. Just curious as to what they were thinking, as usual.

xD

you clearly didnt read my OP, they could've made it so it doesn't work in stealth. That's all that needed to happen.

And again, ANYONE could get that item.

sense of entitlement comment is also hilarious. keep moving troll.
