SWTOR Imperial Agent Guide - 2.10.1

Rotation & Cooldowns | Patch 2.10.1

A rotation is a system for ordering your abilities in a way that maximizes your damage, threat or healing. Mastering a rotation will help you to quickly prioritize abilities during actual encounters so that you will always have the highest possible output as a Medic spec Operative (Imperial Agent.)

Single Target

Single target rotations are designed for maximum damage, threat or healing on one target at a time. Single target rotations are more effective the longer you are able to focus on the same target.


Execute the following ability priority for optimal damage, threat, or healing on a single target.

  1. Surgical Probe when target below 30% Health.
  2. Kolto Probe to build Tactical Advantage
  3. Kolto Infusion when max Energy and 2+ Tactical Advantage
  4. Surgical Probe with 2+ Tactical Advantage
  5. Kolto Injection
  6. Diagnostic Scan

The key to the Medic spec Operative priority system is to remember the following:

  1. Maximize Energy regen by staying above 60 Energy as much as possible.
  2. Use Diagnostic Scan if below 60 Energy and minimal healing is required.
  3. Keep at least 1 Tactical Advantage up at all times.
  4. Use Surgical Probe on targets below than 30% health to benefit from Surgical Precision .
  5. Use Kolto Infusion or Surgical Probe when you have 2+ Tactical Advantage .
  6. Follow the priority list and use higher priority abilities as often as possible.

Multiple Target (AoE)

Execute the following ability priority for optimal damage, threat, or healing on multiple targets.


  1. Recuperative Nanotech
  2. Normal Single Target Priority

Burst Cooldowns

Burst cooldowns are used to increase your damage, threat or healing for a brief period of time.

Survivability Cooldowns

Survivability cooldowns help keep you alive and provide relief to healers.
