EA has been quite generous with the starter characters they give us. With Talia being the only healer on the dark side, you need to use her in tough missions where healing is essential. Until you are able to get another decent healer on the dark site like Old Daka, you will be stuck with only 1 healer on the dark side for quite a while.
The good thing about her AoE heal is that it increases the turn meter by 25%, which allows your whole team a better chance to go again. Once you max out her skills, her heal is very reliable and she can heal herself back with her regular attack. The damage over time special attack is a bonus and works very well against high health enemies in both arena and campaign mode. Just make sure not to use her in your arena defense as the AI is quite dumb.
With her being easily farmable once your player level gets about to 30+, you can start upgrading her from Ship Cantina 1-G and Light Side 2-D, Light Side 2-F. Cherish her as she is your shining hope on Dark Side battles!
Note: Her recent buff gives her 100% heal based on her attack for her first skill. A very significant buff to a decent character.

Verdict: Upgrade All The Way
