Good to know. I didn't bother to look. I'd rather see dual spec though.

As for operative, you can hybrid med/conceal or something for both some dps and heal and with modest purples can heal most HM's that way and still contribute to dps if your team is strong. Hybrid is great in pvp too. Expect high end end game to be full med though. Hopefully some top tier talent and core skill rotation changes come to concealment and lethality though someday.

Good enough, yes.

However, dps operatives are, of the advanced classes, probably the worst one to take into an operation. Just about all melee specs either do more sustained damage, have gap closers or take damage better (usually all 3). And all ranged take less damage being out of harm's way more often while still doing slightly more damage most of the time.

While I've been in hardmode operations with dps operatives (rarely), I don't remember wiping because of one.

Still, if you go dps on an operative, and there were a "draft" so to speak, to decide who gets to go to an operation based on usefulness, you would be picked dead last.

Healing, on the other hand, for a minority of fights (usually things that require a lot of movement; in more stationary fights, sorcs do the best) and every pvp map other than huttball, operatives are the optimal choice for healers.

i agree with sin/shaow and op/scoundrel... double stealth tank and heal when u need, or double dps... lack of ranged and in combat cc might hurt a bit.

Operatives have droid CC ... and both have stealth-sleeping, meaning fights with droids or several gold NPC's you can very easily pre-plan who gets CC'd and wipe the floor with the remaining before any go out of sleep mode.

I'm currently leveling as a tanking assassin with a friend who is leveling as a tanking juggernaut. It's kind of lulzy, but at least we don't die.
