This thread is old and outdated, pls just let it die and don't necro it. Here's an updated one:
here's the original post if you Really wanna read it:
I wanted to create a thread like this for quite a while now, but after announcement of HK-51 I finally decided to do it.
Pre 1.2 Droid companions were not able to wear the best possible gear due to inability to extract end game Armorings / Barrels.
Post 1.2 This problem still persists because of armoring restrictions (for example if you extract the armoring from Rakata chest, the armoring will be restricted to chest pieces only). It is not possible to insert that restricted armoring into any form of droid armor, thus making all humanoid companions superior to droids.
I really hope that the patch that introduces HK-51 will do something about this, either by allowing droids to wear humanoid armor (wookies can, why not droids) or by removing the armoring restrictions (I am not asking to remove them completely, just make them compatible with droid armor, for example head can go into Sensor Unit, Chest to Core and so on).
Droids should have a full right to wear Black Hole / Campaign gear, just like every other companion.
Impossible to fully gear HK-51 For Republic because of Imperial-exclusive mods.
