Question: if im well geared as merc dps, can i respecc and do decent as a healer for hard mode flashpoints?

Fyi i already have extensive exp as a healer (operative all blackhole) as well as healing in other MMOs

(doing it partially for the instant queues but also because im curious about merc healing)
Story is so important i sold starwars to disney and asked jj abrams to direct the new star wars film....and that is why we cant have faction change!

More or less yes you can, you will want to replace accuracy with alacrity though, and maybe pick up a lil additional surge.

You should have no trouble with hm fps. I switched from dps to heals and ran a hm ev with only 2 pieces Columi heal set. Rest was dps stuff. And, other healer was sorcerer in recruit gear. We did fine. Only hm you might have trouble with is Lost Island.

heh funny you mention that, i did HM LI just to test it out, i ended up in a group which was wiping on last boss...3 boss attempts, the tank was taking wayy too much dmg for me to ever heal, if the dps ever took dmg it was essentially a death sentence for them...didnt work..

came on my geared operative healer(hes actually geared for heals) and 1 shot everything in the place( although with a better tank and group overall)
