Takes some getting use to as I never used med pacs with my smuggler. Either space emailed them to guild members or sold them. Which has hurt me at level 50 in group play. When I get low on health using a med pac is not second nature to me. Really hope my agent gets me out of that bad habit. Learning that my healers death not only spells doom for me, but usually the entire group.
