I like all of the concepts of Healing, Dps, and Tanking.

So I'm having a really hard time deciding. I know Commando Healers in some instances are inferior to a Sage or Scoundrel, but I was just wondering what everyone's opinion is.

I may be leaning more towards Vanguard. Fun to tank with, and Assault does some beast damage. Opinions?

If you want to tank - Vanguard.
If you want to heal - Commando.
If you want to do good ranged DPS - Commando.
If you want to do good melee DPS - Vanguard.

You need to decide which is more important to you, tanking or healing.

Commando heals are not inferior, every healing class is good for different things, I have a 50 sage and raid all the time with a Commando healer. Dps wise it's what the guy above said, ranged dps commando, some more close dps vanguard, both do awesome dps.

here is a link to my most recent commando healing guide, this guide (if you decide to go commando) is highly recommended to fully make use of your commando as a healer.

Are you planning on doing pve or pvp? If pvp then vanguard. If pve then go commando. Commando heals are only inferior to sage/scoundral in pvp.
