I absolutely love the utility it gives her. I just pop a tranq into the monster and help my team and even my own survivability by slowing them down. I know she might not HEAL as well as Caira but she sure does make the monster’s life a living hell while still doing respectable healing.
I played Caira until you made the tranq change with Val and now Val is 100x more fun. Please do not reduce the 10 seconds of tranq because honestly I need that duration to be able to have enough time to actually move from the monster and switch weapons to heal. Anything shorter is just a weapon switching nightmare for a medic every few seconds making healing NOT fun.
Pop a tranq, maybe a weakspot and focus on keeping the team alive while not getting pounded. Anything less than 10 seconds for tranq means a switching weapons constantly.
