Expertise sucks for healers because even 1v1 Its exceptionally hard to out heal a geared dps they do more flat out damage have alot of interupts and make it dam near impossible to heal your self up, when they can hit for 5-7k consistently and as a scoundrel I have to rely on enitrely on ticks to get out of it becasue i cant use my big heal that rarely heals for more than 5k anyway, when it crits its ok But pulling that off in a 1v1 or 2v1 fight is near imposible . Expertise is out of balance and dont give the maths explaination because it is out of balance. If a DPS can consistently hit for 5-7k with 24% Expertise Damage Boost even tho they have -20%Damage Reduction Boost on the target and the healer has 13% Healing Expertise Boost and cant heal them selves for 5k consistently wheres the balance there, even tho the attacker and healer have equal gear!

Expertise is one of the biggest fail of SWTOR. It should go away.

As I see the basic idea behind expertise is that ensure: raiders in raid gear will not dominate warzones. There is one proper answer to this problem: make available the same gear to PvP and PvE people via paralel routes.
