Issues with Gearing Quinn

Hey guys,
So I know that the codex lists his primary attrib as cunning and I've been boosting his cunning appropriately. Up to this point I had assumed that his heals would be increased as I increase his cunning (since it's his prim attrib), but I just looked at his char sheet and noticed that cunning increases only his combat damage. Which I don't give 2 ***** about. The only thing that seems to increase his healing (again, according to the char sheet) is +power. This mara is my first character and I've had no experience with casters before so this was a huge discovery for me.

Has anyone else noticed this? Should I be giving a **** about cunning or just making sure all my mods/augments boost power as much as possible? Because that's how it would seem.
You're not as right as you think you are.

I noticed this the other day too. My Quinn is in full Centurion Field Medic Gear from the Agents PvP Vendor and his heals never go above 300.

Seriously? So ***, is he capped on heals and our only way to buff him is with power? And force power I guess.

so it isnt just me that thinks quinn has really weak heals

i mean,im a juggernaught not a marauder but im currently using quinn and figured it was probably because i just needed to gear him more

No this is your Quinn lacking gear, not a game design flaw.

My Quinn Regularly heals me for near 1.1k, but I did deck him out in full Columi gear and he has over 1400 Cunning.

I geared up Quinn specifically to solo hc dailies (I hate him though so it was a pain to farm gear for him) and I have 0 issues with his heals. I mean between my def cds and his heals, I solo Raxxus on Belsavis no problem. He's in mix of tionese/columi and this "big heal" or whatever the name is, crits for like 1.5k regularily.

All NPC healers scale awfully. My Columi\Champ Doc with fairly optimized mods heals for what my Sawbones used to at 30-35.

In contrast, damage-dealing companions seem to scale just fine. Had Rusk crit for 3-3.5k with Centurion\Champion gear.

I have no problem with Quin healing me at all. Stack power and alacrity, you'll never die.

so besides commendation gear,what else is there in terms of lower lvls gearing quinn up.cuz i bought a couple things with commendations but i dont normally choose commendations when i do quests unless theres nothing that looks like a upgrade for my warrior or for quinn

i bought a couple things at the commendation vendor but meh.im still thinkin maybe ive slacked on gearing him up and should gear him a bit more,if it matters im not a marauder though,im a juggernaught.but since this thread was kinda about gearin quinn up i figured id ask
