From release notes, developer notes;
"The awarded Commendations will be divided equally between all contributing players. Contributing Players are classified as any player that does damage to the target or heals a player that damaged the target."
I had imagined a change in the same old gameplay that's been around for years. However I received about 0 commidations for healing people for an hour or so.
Then the usual things that happen when I heal made me remember why I don't heal out there.
1) I healed a level 40 getting zerged in EC... which in turn made ALL the NPCs in EC go wild and kill me.
2) Suddenly all the creep NPC's are attacking me..... freeps getting heals ignore this and I'm left to deal with someone else's NPCs.
I will try going heals again sometime soon...when the moors is less full of hungry hungry creeps waiting for freeps to get though the new content. I'm wondering if Defilers/War leaders saw commidations for healing others?
