What I’ve learned as a Merc Bodyguard!

So far as I’ve only played a Bounty Hunter Mercenary Bodyguard, I have learned one valuable lesson. It’s not as easy as most would think it would be. But I have learned to put heals above everything else, and I’m happy to do just that. Also It’s a little strange for me since I’ve only really played DPS and what not, but now I am understanding the need for heals, and how fun it can be. Course now I’m debating on which healing class should be next for me. Sorc healer, or Operative Healer, which both stories I love, but I am leaning more towards an Operative healer as I’ve read they are more mobile on their heals, and etc. Plus it’s nothing against those that prefer force users, I just find playing a non force user a little more exciting for me. Plus it’s a challenge. Of course though my ultimate plan is having a mirror class for each healer as well, so when the time comes for me to go over to Republic side I plan on making a Commando Healer, and once I have both Sorc and Operative healers on Empire side, I will have both Jedi Sage healer, and Smuggler healer, all because it will be nice to have both, of course though it will require me to buy more slots so I can do this. Over time though. Then eventually I want to try my hand at tanking in the future as well, but right now I plan on being responsible as a healer, and try to keep my teammates alive and well as much as I can. I am also working on a guide that I can use better to help me become a better healer, how I am doing that is by taking both the guides from Dulfy and from what I read on the official forums at SWTOR as well. I tend to combine the two into a guide were I can gather information and start prepping myself to gear up as I get close to level 70.

Course I am not sure about much of anything else at the moment as I tend to want to begin challenging myself. Of course if I could get our guild master to stop doing story mode of Black Talon for the social points, I could use my skills a lot better. Course he wants to run Story Mode and won’t dismiss that damn droid we get from it, which is annoying to me, because how am I suppose to learn how to be a better healer, when that damn droid is active all the time. He just doesn’t get it I don’t think. This is a new area for me, and I’m willing to try my best, course other than my guns, All my gear is Tier 1 230’s all augmented as well. I’m just a tad off on the numbers of Endurance, Power, and Critical. Not by much, but I think if I can get better barrels , mods, enhancements I will be set then. But as I look on the GTN for level 70 stuff, I can’t afford it at the moment as I just bought myself a new gear set I have been wanting for the last few months. It was the Galvanized Infantry armor set. Course I know once I get the cartel coins to unlock it account wide, that will be one set my healing trooper will be wearing. Course now I am working finding a new weapon for the hunter. So now that task is at hand and I am having issues finding one I like. I have the gear sets I like the best, but no new weapons. At least none that would go with the lighting tuning that is installed it. Oh well that is another thing. Enjoy.
