Reverend, I actually like roleplaying better than combat. My Jedi Shadow on The Ebon Hawk is set up using the combat rotation from Noxxic. Since implementing that, he hasn't been defeated. So now combat is just another task that he must do as he progresses. My Commando is effective for ranged dps, but I've discovered that fights finish faster if he just heals the Jedi's as they chop on the enemies. I think the ability is Combat Support Cell.
My sniper on Red Eclipse is much different. That one likes to one-shot enemies and engage in snarky conversation.
I was only on for a short while last night. No guarantees tonight as I'm still a little light headed.
