Why not try a hybrid healing/dps spec? Though, even as dps, you probably have enough healing to get by solo.

I'm a sniper so it's me and Lokin together 4 eva!

She's a bit like an Empire version of Kira (not quite sure if that really conveys what I mean).
I'd find it amusing if LS Jaesa is only into women.

They'd never have a female that's exclusive to women though.

Why not? They had Traynor in ME3 (I hope this is not counted as being off topic again).

I would be crushed if I don't get to romance either Vette or Jaesa with my fem SW, I've parked her in Dromund Kas just waiting for the SGR options to open. I'd probably go for Jaesa though, if available, Vette is just too good for my SW.
With my smuggler I'm kind of open to suggestions, I'd prefer Akaavi, but Risha or a new companion would be fine as well.

For my JK I'd prefer Kira, but if a new and cool lesbian companion would be added I could accept that.

I think there are points for both making companions pc-sexual and also for making characters that show their sexual orientation openly independently from the PC.
Why not a mixture.

I just hope that when the SGR option comes, that it's a) for all classes and b) that there will be existing characters open for SGR and not just one or two new companions that would be available to all classes like the HK is suppossed to be.

Considering that currently ALL female companions are romance options for males...I doubt they'd ever deny them one.

I just hope lvl 50s can do them.

That isn't quite true. LS Jasea is not available to either gender as a romantic interest. Which I believe may well be corrected in the future (I seem to remember reading something about that somewhere, but don't ask me where).

I've decided to go through the dialogues with Jaesa as they occur, since she's not actually a LI with anyone yet. So, hopefully, that means if they do open her up as a LI, there'll be mechanisms in place for capped SWs to go back and romance her.

I certainly hope this is correct. I have recently unsubscribed and will wait for the promised SGRA enabled content. If my level 50 female can't romance existing companions, or my level 30, I will be very disappointed and probably not resubscribe. I have no plans to start the game over with a new alt. I have done this already a dozen times and am tired of the existing world content.

She is still possibly available in general.

There is no female companion that lacks a romance arc.

I disagree, but I acknowledge that some people may see my reason for doing so as a little out there.

LS and DS Jaesa are VERY different. They may as well be two separate (and exclusive to one another) companions. Everything about them is different, their combat barks, their ship conversations, even their basic look.

Too true! The only biologically female companion that the player can't bang is the companion that the player can choose to avoid recruiting.

I doubt we'll ever see an exclusively gay female companion. Lady companions are, by all evidence to date, designed to be accessible to all.

and what do you think about the male version, oh wise one?


btw, I was under the impression that they got rid of the choice to .not. recruit someone... back in beta *scratches head*
