You might as well just leave no one there if you have to leave a merc or commando there. Oh wait.... They did get an inturpt now didn't they? Too bad that doesn't help them with DPS or being able to survive.

I'm perfectly happy to leave a healing commando to solo guard and objective. They take a LONG time to kill. As for dps merc well yeah they need help in pvp.

I should of said DPS mercs or cammandos. I would also be comfortable leaving a merc / commando healer at a point as long as they were geared.

I'm not. Healers should be with the group healing.

That depends ont he situation though. If you have 3-4 healers on your team, a DPS shouldn't be over there watching the point. The DPS should be in the fight at that point.

The title of this thread itself made me laugh. I've lost count of how many times I've been left to solo guard a node as a DPS merc. When that happens all you can do is call incoming when they appear. You'll never survive the encounter on your own.
