They do, assuming they are good...but you shouldn't leave a healer to solo guard a node. Especially since you are probably in PUGs and that is probably a 90% chance that they are the only healer on your team.

But yeah commando merc need an overhaul.

My main is heals so I usually don't have to worry about there not being another healer if the commando healer guards. Combine that with the reality that most pub pugs on my server can't even break 80k dmg in a medium length wz and you'll understand why I'm willing to leave another healer at the off node. I can heal harder to do both our jobs. Doing dps to cover for bieng down a dps when our dps is so low anyways, not so efficent as heals.

I'd have to agree with this. People allow my CM Commando solo guard objectives all the time because I can heal and interupt until reenforcements arrive.

Pt's aren't that great at it either but inevitably the classes most suited for it won't, some to the point they'd rather abandon it and do.

tbh it doesn't matter what class defends as long as its not the healer and tank who could be better used elsewhere.

They should be able to call an INC as soon as people start heading towards the node and get backup as the fight start, if they are not saying anything and attempting to solo an enemy they know they can't kill then they are just bad.
