And I just looked over the list of Imperial classes and their companions, none of those are medium armor, cunning, shield-using folks either.

So I don't see how there are any companions that truly benefit from an item with this particular itemization. Sure there are plenty of medium armor, cunning-based's just that not a single one of them needs shielding. And there are plenty of heavy armor wearing, shield generator equipping companions...but every single one of them is Aim-based, not Cunning-based.

Unless I'm missing something, or all the fansite info on one of these companions is incorrect.
I did the same check because this claim looked fishy to me, and I came up with the same results.

Side note 1: You TECHNICALLY can stack you medium armor, cunning gear on a Heavy Armor, Aim Shield Generator character, and you can TECHNICALLY get a benefit out of it, but that like my Ops stacking light armor Willpower gear and saying the character gets stats benefits. So, what Georg said was TECHNICALLY correct. Still not a good idea.

Side note 2: Its possible a future companion (HK-51?) may use a shield generator and cunning as a stat, so I'll give Georg the benefit of the doubt on this one...

Side note 3: Of all the posts to comment on in the Ops/Scoundrel boards, and all their pressing issues, this is the one that gets attention? Oy.
As for Scoundrels having no tools for short burst healing, we donít agree with that assessment. A scoundrel, for example, is capable of producing rather significant burst healing output by using Upper Hand gained from Underworld Medicine or Kolto Injection to trigger an instant Emergency Medpack or Surgical probe when needed.
