Hi community,

I am playing as a commando, im used to being a tank rather than a healer. I wan't to learn how to become a good healer so i can help other players. Could somebody please redirect me to a thread which explains how to become a good commando healer.

Thanks

well using heavy weapons is good when defeating strogn enemies. It depends which level your enemy is on

Dps is damage per second, tanking is when you take damage for your team, and to do so you need to be a class that can tank well with skills involved in it, vanguard, guardian, shadow, powertech, jugernaught, assassin.
the stats to tank are more thna likely defence rating and abosorption rating and shield rating.

Healing is usually alacrity and crit.

Im new to healing pvp is hard but 4 man FP is fun it can become overwhelming at times but I like it.

As a mediocre Commando Combat Medic, I'd say to focus on the following:
- Keep track of your teammates health,
- Manage your ammo,
- ?????
- Profit!

Support Cell, Basic heal, Med Probe, Basic heal, etc. with some bombs thrown in there for good measure.
