So the companion is actually really important?
I mean, as much as me?
Is fine for me as far as other ppl are ok with that.
I would never need on upgrades for my companion. The companion will not be there when you are doing instances, PvP, or Raids. Take the companion as a questing "pet/minigame" I would certainly bash you for needing for your comapnion where I need for my say raid gear.
