Yeah, those convos were like
Xalek: "You are a great warrior."
you gain 500 xp
LOL true, and I feel the same way about Broonmark...
Broonmark: [something that translates to "Sith Clan makes me bloodlust happy, kill, revenge, life is good"]
SW: "Alrighty then."
Sad in Xalek's case. He's your apprentice and he arrives too late in the game to really form an attachment to him. Broonmark may as well be a holosculpture of a Talz, a slightly embarrassing souvenir of Hoth tucked away next to the cargo hold: 'once again- why did I bring this thing on board?'
