Operative Medicine Basics Guide

Medicine

As an accomplished practitioner of the medical arts, the Medicine Operative servers as the preservative backbone of any combat team. Deploying a full complement of sophisticated gadgets to dispense healing kolto and reparative nanotech clouds to one or more targets, the Medicine Operative ensures their allies remain fit for fighting.

Medicine for New Players

  • Medicine is a healer style, which makes it harder to learn than a damage class for most new players
  • Most players recommend to level as a damage discipline, then switch to healer when you are ready for group content
  • All three healer styles are not too hard to start healing with, just select a player and heal with a green ability
  • However Operative Heals has a second resource to manage called Upper Hand, which makes it slightly trickier to start with

How to play a Medicine Operative

You can start playing Medicine at level 1. To start playing Medicine, you will need to first create a Operative character, which can be played by Troopers, Bounty Hunters, Smugglers or Imperial Agents.

Once you are ingame, press K on your keyboard to open the Combat Style tab, and choose Medicine from the three options. This choice is not permanent, you will be able to switch between all three options by finding a rest location like a cantina.

Below Level 80

If you are below level 80, there are no true guides available to tell you what specific abilities you should be using, because the ideal rotation would change every level.

Instead, you can use this guide to figure out which of your abilities are attacks, which are defensive, and which are just useful.

Level 80

5 Ability Basic Priority

Not quite ready to learn all your abilities yet? Use this quick 5-ability guide for the Medicine Operative until you’re ready to read and learn from a true level 80 guide.

  •  Kolto Probe is your most important heal as an Operative! It’s an unassuming heal-over-time that looks like it doesn’t do much, but at the end of a tough fight a majority of your healing will have come from keeping 2 stacks of this on everyone who needs it! Make sure it’s always at least on the tanks, and on other party members including yourself too if you have time.
  •  Kolto Injection is a pretty standard heal move that you can cast any time, but it’s big strength is that it always grants a Tactical Advantage, allowing you to use lots of other strong heals right after it.
  •  Kolto Infusion is nice because not only is it a bigger heal, it also refreshes your Kolto Probe, if your target has 2 stacks. It costs a Tactical Advantage, so if you can’t cast it and don’t know why, try using Kolto Injection first.
  •  Surgical Probe is another heal that costs a Tactical Advantage, but doesn’t do as much healing as Infusion. It’s strength is in it’s ability to refresh the duration of Kolto Probe, but only if the target has 2 stacks of Kolto Probe on them! The smartest heal to use when a target needs some healing, but not enough to justify a huge costly Infusion. A great spot heal is to use Kolto Pack, then Emergency Medpac, as the former makes the latter stronger.
  •  Diagnostic Scan is less of an important healer ability, and more of a good source of Energy Regeneration. Use this during breaks in healing, as if you are lucky it can help restore some of your energy, which will help you prepare for the future of the fight.

Multiple Allies 

  • Use Recuperative Nanotech heals one person plus three others close by, and also makes your heals on them stronger! This can be good to help your tanks and simultaneously top up your melee DPS, to heal a few players taking sustained damage. You can even use it on a single target just to make your other heals stronger on them. As Recuperative Nanotech is a great heal, you’ll want to use it as often as possible until you learn the perfect timing to use it per fight. Need a big emergency heal? Use Nanotech then Surgical Probe for a guaranteed critical heal with Surgical Probe.
  • Kolto Waves is an extremely powerful area heal. It’s usually better to leave a few Kolto Probes to slowly heal a few targets over time, but if the entire group is taking sustained damage, Kolto Waves will do the most overall healing when you all really need it!

Extra Tips

  •  Use Adrenaline Probe to get energy back when you run extremely low. This may happen due to using Kolto Waves or Infusion too much.
  •  Toxin Scan becomes a pretty important ability for healers as some fights have extremely harmful but cleansable debuffs that go on the group, and it is the healer’s job to cleanse these. In Operations, your group leader can hopefully tell you what the icon of the debuff will be on your friends health bars, if it’s your first time looking for it. Operative Healers should never need to use Toxin Scan on themselves, because they already have two abilities you can use that will cleanse yourself: you can use Evasion, which is one of your defensive abilities, or use Cloaking Screen, your combat stealth, both of which will cleanse you, so you can save Toxin Scan for your friends.
  •  Feeling Spicy? Stim Boost is a great buff to your overall healing for 15 seconds, and also generates a Tactical Advantage which will allow you to use your other abilities!
  •  Feeling EXTRA spicy? Use your Cloaking Screen to briefly enter stealth, as exiting stealth will also generate 2 Tactical Advantages.
  •  Resuscitation Probe is your special combat revive ability. As of the Legacy of the Sith Expansion, only true healers can revive in-combat, every 5 minutes. Usually you will save this for tanks, but if your leader says otherwise or more DPS is needed to finish the fight, target the dead player with this and they can accept a revive at your location!
  • Sleep Dart is a special ability sometimes known as a CC, a Crowd Control, a sleep or a sap. It can only be used while you are stealthed and out of combat, and it is used to put enemies to sleep. Sleeping enemies allows your group to sneak past them, or sometimes just keeps them out of the fight as long as no one attacks them. While you can’t put bosses to sleep, if you are playing Flashpoints, stealthers are often expected to go into stealth and put smaller enemies in-between bosses to sleep.
Level 80

Before You Start…

The Kolto Burst Choice at level 23 can be invaluable for a Medicine Operative that’s focusing on healing a large group. Remember to cast the Injection on YOURSELF to spread it to 8 allies around you! You can run or roll between your ranged group and your melee group to share your Kolto Burst with them. Probably not needed in Flashpoints, but great for Operations.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Kolto Burst has received a significant reduction in healing in update 7.1.1, but is still fairly strong to use in intense AoE damage scenarios: just be careful of running out of energy, use kolto waves more often than you used to.

Useful Abilities

These abilities may not be directly for attacking, but they are used heavily by skilled Operatives in combat to turn the tide of a fight.

  • Recuperate - Regeneration - Regain health out of battle.Level 1
  • Stealth - Stealth - Enter Stealth to sneak around or sneak up to enemies. Stronger enemies can see you coming, but you can sneak past weaker ones. You can only enter Stealth when you are outside of combat unless you use your Combat Stealth ability.Level 10
  • Escape - Stun Break - If you are stunned and can’t move, you can use this ability to unstun yourself.Level 10
  • Distraction - Interrupt - Every class has an interrupt ability that allows them to interrupt an enemy while they are casting. Enemy castbars that fill up from left to right are called casts and can be interrupted and the ability will be stopped, but castbars that go from right to left deal damage the entire time they are channeling. Using your interrupt in combat is very useful as it can prevent the enemy from damaging you, or sometimes even prevent them from stunning you or knocking you back!Level 19
  • Debilitate - Optional Stun Level 27 Option 3/3 - You can use your short stun on weaker enemies to stop them from running around, from casting abilities, to stop them from damaging you, or just to keep them out of the fight in general.Level 27
  • Cloaking Screen - Combat Stealth - Enter Stealth while you are in combat, either to run away, to sneak off and heal up, or to take advantage of stealth in the fight. If you enter Combat Stealth while you are alone or all your team mates are dead, the fight may reset.Level 35
  • Sleep Dart - Crowd Control - Your crowd control (CC) is a special type of stun you can only use when your enemy is outside of combat. You use it before a fight, to temporarily knock an opponent out of the fight while you deal with the other enemies. Accidentally damaging your crowd control'd target will wake them up.Level 35
  • Toxin Scan - Cleanse - Your cleanse can help remove harmful effects from you or other players.Level 51
  • Resuscitation Probe - Combat Revive - Your revive ability helps you bring a fallen group member back to life during combat. Only healer disciplines can revive during combat. You can only use your own combat revive on one of your team members once every five minutes.Level 60
  • Exfiltrate - Movement - Roll forward 12 meters. While rolling, your chance to dodge melee and ranged attacks is increased by 30%. Does not break stealth. Cannot be used while immobilized or hindered. Exfiltrate has 2 ability charges and recharges one charge every 8 seconds.Level 60
  • Infiltrate - Optional Stealth Level 68 Option 1/3 - Cloaks all group members within 10 meters of you in a temporary stealth field that lasts 15 seconds. Cannot be used in combat. Only usable while in stealth mode.Level 68
  • Flash Bang - Optional Area Stun Level 68 Option 2/3 - Stuns allow you to knock enemies out of the fight temporarily. Some stuns break on damage - so if you attack the enemy while they are stunned with any type of attack, they will no longer be stunned.Level 68

Can be used while immobilized and purges any movement impairing effects. Does not break stealth. Cannot be used against enemy targets in cover.Level 68

Tree Choices

As you level up, you will be able to make choices about how you play your Medicine Operative with the Ability Tree, which can be opened with the K key on your keyboard. If you do not choose one, a default option will be chosen for you.

Of all the classes, Healers tend to have the most variation when it comes to their favorite ability tree choices. This is due to each fight being very different, and the healer's actual preferences. Some of the factors include whether or not your group has other healers and what types of healers, if you need mobility, if you yourself will be taking lots of damage, and how you actually like to heal. The suggestions below are mainly based on the Theorycrafter's Discord's Suggestions but they are by far not the only options you can use.

You will have eight choices to make as you level up, at levels 23, 27, 39, 43, 51, 64, 68 and 73. All of these Ability Tree choices are not permanent choices and can be changed later. If you are following a Level 80 guide on how to play your Medicine Operative, you will need to make sure to choose the same options as they have. You may not have the same choices chosen as a friend who is also playing a Medicine Operative.

Level 23 Choice: Kolto Injection Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Kolto Injection to change at level 23. Your options are Kolto Stim, Kolto Burst, and Defensive Injection.

Kolto Injection

Heals a friendly target and grants a Tactical Advantage.

Kolto Stim

Kolto Injection grants a Tactical Advantage when used on yourself.

Kolto Injection grants a Tactical Advantage when used on yourself.

Kolto Burst

Kolto Injection heals up to 8 allies around you when used on yourself.

Kolto Injection heals up to 8 allies around you when used on yourself.

Defensive Injection

Kolto Injection increases the damage reduction on any target it heals by 5% for 10 seconds.

Kolto Injection increases the damage reduction on any target it heals by 5% for 10 seconds.

Solo Suggestion: Kolto Burst - Clearing solo content as a healer isn't recommended, but this talent will at least heal your companion when you heal yourself.

Operation Suggestion: Kolto Burst - A medicine operative's biggest strength is in healing large groups. Kolto Injection being used on yourself to spread it to 8 allies is huge and makes you even better at your best role! Take Defensive Injection if single target healing needs improvement.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Defensive Injection - A medicine operative's biggest strength is in healing large groups. That said, in a flashpoint you only have 4 people to heal including yourself. If the tank is the only one really taking any damage, you'll make things easier by taking Defensive Injection.

Level 27 Choice

Choose from one of three Operative abilities at Level 27, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Medicine Operative for the Level 27 choice are Curbing Strategies, Clever Countermeasures, and Debilitate.

Curbing Strategies

Overload Shot and Noxious Knives reduce the movement speed of targets they damage by 40% for 6 seconds. In addition, Noxious Knives deals 25% more damage.

Overload Shot and Noxious Knives reduce the movement speed of targets they damage by 40% for 6 seconds. In addition, Noxious Knives deals 25% more damage.

Clever Countermeasures

Increases the duration of Evasion by 2 seconds. In addition, activating Evasion grants a Tactical Advantage.

Increases the duration of Evasion by 2 seconds. In addition, activating Evasion grants a Tactical Advantage.

Debilitate

Deals energy damage and stuns the target for 4 seconds.

You can use your short stun on weaker enemies to stop them from running around, from casting abilities, to stop them from damaging you, or just to keep them out of the fight in general.

General Suggestion: Clever Countermeasures - An upgrade to your Evasion that includes a free on demand Tactical Advantage is the best choice you can make in this tier. This allows you to spend the Advantage on your bigger heals more often.

Level 39 Choice: Recuperative Nanotech Change

Choose from one of three ways that you want Recuperative Nanotech to change at level 39. Your options are Nanotech Stim, Nano Mark, and Critical Nanotech.

Recuperative Nanotech

Heals the target and up to 3 allies within 10 meters over 9 seconds and Invigorates them for 45 seconds. Invigorated targets receive 3% more healing from all sources.

Nanotech Stim

For each target affected by Recuperative Nanotech, the cooldown of Stim Boost is reduced by 2 seconds.

For each target affected by Recuperative Nanotech, the cooldown of Stim Boost is reduced by 2 seconds.

Nano Mark

The initial target of Recuperative Nanotech receives 20% increased healing from you for the duration of Recuperative Nanotech.

The initial target of Recuperative Nanotech receives 20% increased healing from you for the duration of Recuperative Nanotech.

Critical Nanotech

For each subsequent target affected by Recuperative Nanotech, the critical hit chance of Recuperative Nanotech is increased by 10%.

For each subsequent target affected by Recuperative Nanotech, the critical hit chance of Recuperative Nanotech is increased by 10%.

Solo Suggestion: Nanotech Stim - Stim Boost can be used for more than just healing bonuses, so in solo content this is probably your best bet.

Operation Suggestion: Nanotech Stim - When healing a large group like an operation team, the cooldown on stim boost is reduced quite a bit so long as you remember to throw some recuperative nanotech out during raid-wide damage! Take Nano Mark for better single target.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Nano Mark - If the damage taken is primarily just the tank, this choice will make them even easier to heal!

Level 43 Choice

Choose from one of three Operative abilities at Level 43, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Medicine Operative for the Level 43 choice are Stim Burst, Tactical Overdrive, and Tactical Effectiveness.

Stim Burst

Activating Stim Boost increases your healing done by 15% for 15 seconds.

Activating Stim Boost increases your healing done by 15% for 15 seconds.

Tactical Overdrive

Resets the cooldown of Stim Boost, Recuperative Nanotech, Toxin Scan, and Shield Probe and increases your Mastery by 20% for 15 seconds.

Resets the cooldown of Stim Boost, Recuperative Nanotech, Toxin Scan, and Shield Probe and increases your Mastery by 20% for 15 seconds.

Tactical Effectiveness

Having an Tactical Advantage increases all damage and healing dealt by 5%.

Having an Tactical Advantage increases all damage and healing dealt by 5%.

Operation Suggestion: Stim Burst - This choice is the hardest to work around but may give you the best benefit if you know how to use it. If you line it up with the heaviest 15 seconds of damage taken in a fight, this choice will save the most lives!

Flashpoint Suggestion: Tactical Overdrive - If someone messes up and takes a big spike of unexpected damage, this optional buff can get you back on track pretty quick! Adds complexity to medicine operative but a very useful emergency button.

Solo Suggestion: Tactical Effectiveness - The most passive choice in the tier and also the only one that increases damage - best for solo content or players looking to keep medicine operative as simple as possible.

Level 51 Choice

Choose from one of three Operative abilities at Level 51, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Medicine Operative for the Level 51 choice are Infiltrator, Advanced Cloaking, and Chem-resistant Inlays.

Infiltrator

Increases movement speed by 15% and effective stealth level by 3.

Increases movement speed by 15% and effective stealth level by 3.

Advanced Cloaking

Reduces the cooldown of Cloaking Screen by 30 seconds and activating Cloaking Screen increases movement speed by 50% for 6 seconds.

Reduces the cooldown of Cloaking Screen by 30 seconds and activating Cloaking Screen increases movement speed by 50% for 6 seconds.

Chem-resistant Inlays

Increases damage reduction by 5%.

Increases damage reduction by 5%.

Solo Suggestion: Infiltrator - As a stealth combat style, this may speed up your grindable solo content farms a little bit. For real tangible benefit in combat, take Chem-resistant Inlays.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Chem-resistant Inlays - It will make your healers very happy to see a less squishy Operative. Take this by default.

Operation Suggestion: Chem-resistant Inlays - It will make your healers very happy to see a less squishy Operative. Take this by default.

Level 64 Choice

Choose from one of three Operative abilities at Level 64, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Medicine Operative for the Level 64 choice are Med Shield, Endorphin Rush, and Evasive Screen.

Med Shield

Your Shield Probe heals you for 5% of your maximum health when it collapses.

Your Shield Probe heals you for 5% of your maximum health when it collapses.

Endorphin Rush

Adrenaline Probe now immediately restores 15 additional energy.

Adrenaline Probe now immediately restores 15 additional energy.

Evasive Screen

When activated, Cloaking Screen grants 2 seconds of Evasion.

When activated, Cloaking Screen grants 2 seconds of Evasion.

General Suggestion: Endorphin Rush - Endorphin Rush is definitely the best choice to make sure you have the energy to keep healing.

Level 68 Choice

Choose from one of three Operative abilities at Level 68, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Medicine Operative for the Level 68 choice are Infiltrate, Flash Bang , and Holotraverse.

Infiltrate

Cloaks all group members within 10 meters of you in a temporary stealth field that lasts 15 seconds. Cannot be used in combat. Only usable while in stealth mode.

Cloaks all group members within 10 meters of you in a temporary stealth field that lasts 15 seconds. Cannot be used in combat. Only usable while in stealth mode.

Flash Bang

Detonates a flash bang that blinds the target and up to 7 nearby enemies for 8 seconds. Damage causes this effect to end prematurely. When Flash Bang ends it leaves behind Flash Powder that reduces the target's accuracy by 20% for 8 seconds.

Stuns allow you to knock enemies out of the fight temporarily. Some stuns break on damage - so if you attack the enemy while they are stunned with any type of attack, they will no longer be stunned.

Holotraverse

Supercharge your stealth generator, generating a Tactical Advantage and quickly moving you to a friendly or enemy target and increasing your movement speed by 75% for 3 seconds. Can be used while immobilized and purges any movement impairing effects. Does not break stealth. Cannot be used against enemy targets in cover.

Can be used while immobilized and purges any movement impairing effects. Does not break stealth. Cannot be used against enemy targets in cover.

Solo Suggestion: Holotraverse - Holotraverse generating an Tactical Advantage makes it rotationally important right off the bat. The mobility component is a cool bonus too! Definitely take this by default unless you really need an AoE stun for something.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Holotraverse - Holotraverse generating an Tactical Advantage makes it rotationally important right off the bat. The mobility component is a cool bonus too! Definitely take this by default unless you really need an AoE stun for something or are helping your less sneaky group members get around enemies.

Operation Suggestion: Holotraverse - Holotraverse generating an Tactical Advantage makes it rotationally important right off the bat. The mobility component is a cool bonus too! Definitely take this by default unless you really need an AoE stun for something or are helping your less sneaky group members get around enemies.

Level 73 Choice

Choose from one of three Operative abilities at Level 73, you can only have one of these options at any given time. Your options as a Medicine Operative for the Level 73 choice are Evasive Imperative, Jarring Strike, and Blow for Blow.

Evasive Imperative

Every time you get attacked, the active cooldown of your Evasion is reduced by 3 seconds. This effect cannot occur more than once every 1.5 seconds.

Every time you get attacked, the active cooldown of your Evasion is reduced by 3 seconds. This effect cannot occur more than once every 1.5 seconds.

Jarring Strike

When used from stealth, Backstab and Lethal Strike interrupt and knock down the target for 3 seconds. Player targets are immobilized for 3 seconds, rather than being knocked down.

When used from stealth, Backstab and Lethal Strike interrupt and knock down the target for 3 seconds. Player targets are immobilized for 3 seconds, rather than being knocked down.

Blow for Blow

Activating Evasion grants Blow for Blow, returning 150% of direct single target tech and Force damage taken back to the attacker while Evasion is active.

Activating Evasion grants Blow for Blow, returning 150% of direct single target tech and Force damage taken back to the attacker while Evasion is active.

Flashpoint Suggestion: Evasive Imperative - Evasive Imperative provides the best benefit over the duration of a fight for your survivability. Blow for Blow may be helpful for some extra damage but trying to reflect damage can be risky on an operative in group content.

Operation Suggestion: Evasive Imperative - Evasive Imperative provides the best benefit over the duration of a fight for your survivability. Blow for Blow may be helpful for some extra damage but trying to reflect damage can be risky on an operative in group content.

Solo Suggestion: Jarring Strike - So long as your enemy isn't immune to the effects, the stuns resulting from this choice may help some tough solo fights to be easier at the start. If they're immune anyway, go ahead and take Evasive Imperative as it will provide the most defense over time.

Enemy castbars that fill up from left to right are called casts and can be interrupted and the ability will be stopped, but castbars that go from right to left deal damage the entire time they are channeling. Using your interrupt in combat is very useful as it can prevent the enemy from damaging you, or sometimes even prevent them from stunning you or knocking you back!
