IN most cases it is just as fast to just heal yourself. Or you have like 1-3 seconds loss.. so minor difference.

It's quicker though for him to top himself off instead of waiting for the healer to do it then rest to recover his resource after healing. The only healing that should be done between fights is the Bounty Hunter/Commando rapid shots as that uses no resources, can be performed on the run, and charges a beneficial ability. Other than that Tanks and DPS need to heal themselves between fights.

...do Juggernauts even HAVE a taunt by then? It's been a while since my Jugg was that low-level...

While leveling my guardian tank (may shadows get some love soon) I queued for 50 HM and get in the FP and the healer points out I'm sitting at a glorious 14K hp. I apologized and offered to leave, healer says to stick around. He heals like a boss and we get through. I even got a drop or two and was sitting at a lovely 16k hp by the end.

I actually get annoyed when tanks heal up out of combat lol (my main is a healer). Im not that jerk healer that aggros before the tank but i do like to run and gun, and unless its that damn dog pull in Cademimu, i love when tanks pull at a borderline out of control pace, forcing me to keep up. It brings a "we better finish this mission fast or people are gonna die" mentality to a FP instead of carefully and delibrately planning each trash pull like there is no sense of urgency. If tanks pull with less than full health i just consider it a challenge and heal away.

Oh yah, my latest weird people story. Running some random FP and about ten minutes in, one of the DPS says, "you're a queer" and leaves. Myself and the other two in the group spent a few minutes wondering what we could have done to set him off, then 3 manned until right before the last boss, a dps queues into our group and gets probably the quickest FP run hes ever had.

a couple of days ago i did a hammer station HM on my scoundrel as i was trying out dirty fighting dps

it's pretty fun. things were going well. the tank took about 10-15m to explain every single fight for the healer who had not done the HM before, just SM.


so we get the bonus boss, and i explain that the healer and any ranged dps (of which we didn't have actually) could stand at 30m.
i walked over to a spot on the wall to say 'tank can stand here against this column' and jumped a few times, then walked over to some crates and said 'heal/ranged can stand here'

tank says repeatedly that there's absolutely no possible way the healer can outrange the boss' aoe without moving. the healer gets a little frustrated and says 'can we just go already?'

tank pulls, goes in a completely different spot that i suggested, and we eventually wipe.

tank immediately says 'see? i told you. not possible to stay out of the aoe'

so i then explain again, this time making sure that the tank stands directly where i'm standing.

then we pull the boss, and win. no one died! it was a miracle!

tank made some comment about how we managed to do it by luck.

i thought 'ok, WHATEVER. you were right, let's just go.'

then the tank, i guess as punishment to me, refused to guard me for the remainder of the flashpoint, even when i pulled aggro after using surrender and even after using disappearing act. i have a mixture of 72/69 gear with a few random 75 mods i've gotten from ops on my commando.

the other dps? full 66 purples and blues with lv30 or so relics


thankfully it didn't cause any problems (and the one wipe we had on the bonus was our only wipe), but i thought that was a pretty petty way of dealing with being wrong. i really didn't know what to think of it.

All tanks get their single target taunt with level 16 (or maybe 18)

Where were you having the tank positioning the boss so the healer was able to be outside of range? Of all the times I've run it (a lot) I have yet to find a spot where the healer can actually be in range or tank and outside of range of aoe without moving.

No, I had the quickest run on Colicoid War Games. I popped in right as they killed the last boss. No loot, but 20K xp and all I had to do was watch a load screen.
