So, I'm a Vanguard in the level 30s and a friend has just got the game and started playing. I've run through a few Flashpoints and Heroics with him for fun, and and to help him through until we're an equivalent enough level to team up and adventure together properly. Being tank spec'd, I can pretty much stroll through these areas taking only single-digit damage, letting him do a lot of the work while I just soak up the damage.
Occasionally he'll take a stray hit from an AoE or catch an unwanted add before I can grab aggro, and as neither of us are healers I've brought Elara Dorne along for support but she insists on concentrating on healing my 1 or 2% damage and ignoring my friend's 40 or 50% damage most of the time. Short of manually targeting my friend and clicking Elara's healing abilities on the companion bar myself for each heal, is there any way I can get her to focus on him?
Note superficially similar to this previous question, except that I want them to heal someone else, not me: How can I force my companion to focus on healing instead of attacking enemies?
