Hello, I'm just wondering how is this possible. A lvl 40 guardian hit me (lvl 34 op) for 4k single hit dmg with force sweep which has base dmg 714-779

I'm not complaining, I'm just wondering how the math works ... thanks

Yes.

Smash/ force sweep is brutal and you will get hit 6-7k lvl 50.

Good luck.

also worth noting that the base damage values on torhead are very wrong.

Saw a 49 twink running around smashing like mad last night. I don't parse and did not see a killing blow from smash from him but huge chunks of health went away when he hit. I would guess he did upwards of 5K, maybe even more in sub-50. I was on my scrapper so I was sure to shoot first when he would leap or if I saw him choking someone. Couldn't contain him. All I could do was try to be as annoying as possible. Was kind of fun, actually.

Just wait till he gets his Vindicator set bonus, and 1100+ power.

Ok, I guess it's just something I'll have to deal with...

Gearwise, what are the best stats to reduce the dmg dealt (for me as an operative). Would that be absorption and/or defense rating. As an operative healer, should I gear for more survivability (e.g. defense/absorption) or should I go for power/critical/surge to increase the healing numbers?

Thanks

Never, ever gear for absorb if you aren't using a shield. The stat will do nothing for you. I suggest against gearing for defense as a healer. What you need is expertise and health. And agility -- the playstyle, not the stat.

^^^ This never ever ever use defense/absorb unless you are a tank class, running a tank spec, using a tank's shield generator, and even then for PvP most run dps gear.

Its an op spec that will eventually be nerfed. Best bet atm is just to avoid the smshes although sometimes they are unavoidable if he decides to go after you, if you see him leaping to someone to smash get out the way so you wont take any smashes passively.. it is aoe after all ^^
