hey new to swtor and looking for some advice on a main char to roll with i dont think i would ever make 2 chars on this game with the amount of free time so with all that said im looking for a ranged dps class with 2 different playstyles such as dps range/melee or ranged/healer or melee/healer ect.

in short if you could have just 1 class only ever what would it be also pros/cons please.

Operative/Scoundrel - healer/melee dps

Pros:
Heals currently excellent in PvP
Stealth melee dps if that's your thing
Best AoE in game (I think) with orbital strike

Cons:
DPS is not the best - nor should it be as a dual role class - slinger/sniper is better pure dps
Squishy when caught without guard or stealth
Hate and tears on these forums

Bullsh*t, every DPS spec should be within 5% of the others, same with heals and tanks. You can take your hybrid tax and stuff it.
