Hello!

Wondering if perhaps anyone has experience as healer as both BH and IA for PvP? Thinking of rolling an alt for PvP healing but cannot decide!


Thanks in advance peeps!

I need to type something out and just copy and paste into these thread that are made so many times each day. The answer is as follows: Sorc/Sage is by far a better healer in PvE, Voidstar, and Alderaan. In Huttball is is more than far better it is almost pointless to have any other healer unless they are a last resort to not finding a Sorc/Sage.

There is no real distinction between healers and there really is no skill. You basically target a friendly and cast heal, target the next friendly and heal. Pretty simple healing mechanics in this game.
Let's Play: The Old Republic! As a Jedi Guardian or a Sith Sorcerer!

I've found BH to be a lot of fun because they're so durable all by themselves. Having played Aion I'm used to a healer that has a lot of casted heals so the need to stand still to cast doesn't bother me at all. The IA has its advantages but if you're going for a squishy healer with more instant casts, I'd say Sage is better for all the obvious reasons. Also I'd like to add some of the non-obvious things re: Sage vs IA - Sage has lots of straight heals for when you need those burst heals (which is especially important in PvP) and a better resource pool; but as far as instant heals are concerned they're pretty equal. I'd just either expect to die a lot or run with a tank if you're going that route.
