If I'm going to pug, I do so as a healer. Anything else is too frustrating.
man, nothings more frustrating then trying to heal pugs. its like they suck so bad, they are immune to healing, they are incapable of being part of their own defense. then i get killed, cause they got killed. even though i gave them every heal i had, they cant be saved if they don't even balance their shields.
most of the time there is literally no one on the team i can latch onto and keep alive so he can kick ass. i keep going back to take care of yourself dps builds because of this wile puging.
Yeah my current healer (which abuses the ES doff), has 2 TTs and 2 Extend shields. I feed the average pug my TTs with ES.
i swapped my 2 DEMs for 2 ES on my fleet heavy cruiser. its great at that job, basically a +1 assault cruiser. huge, better then an odyssey, shield mod on that thing, and 1 better turn, 3rd sci console is nice too
