I have a bit of a off topic question,If we unlock this companion,will there be a increase in the number of companions that we can have out doing missions? there was not for HK-51,but gaining him was a lot less of a investment ,either in CC or credits.

the first purchase is still 100000.

Completely not worth either currencies. Why it wasn't a quest line (free for subscribers) like what they did for HK, then unlocked through legacy exhibits yet more of the laziness and greed of Bioware. Less content for subscribers, more Cartel Market BS. Subscriptions become less and less meaningful. Bioware really is part of the dark side cause that deal (subscriptions) actually is getting worse all the time. Not surprising, but I saw this coming, and it's not over by a long shot. Through all the levels of approval you let this and so many other terrible decisions etc. in the past go live... Things that someone who actually cared would never allow it to see the light of day the way you presented it. You truly don't care anymore, and I can't support someone who doesn't care about their own product or its customers. We are no longer super important to you. That hasn't been for a very long time. As for this MMORPG project, you stopped caring a long time ago. Grats on your Cartel Market a.k.a life support system success. Sooner or later people get tired of it and move on.

Malice if you played more, then you wouldn't have to pay real $ to get the comp.

Heck, they should make it so all Living Legends get Treek for Free. Because it's time Legacy Levels started counting.

Probably not, even though I wish it was so. Buying Treek will mean I wall always have 2 companions "doing nothing". I cant stand having C2-N2 doing nothing but dusting my quarters and reprogramming ship's food processors, but this will mean that someone (Iresso probably) will have to be on the ship and suffer through his constant rambling

I think its very sensibly priced for a luxury item.

I would like to think the Makeb xpac was priced cheaply as an extra planet and increased level cap is more of an essential item.

1m creds and 300k per character is more than achievable for experienced players and 2100 + 700 coins is about right if you really can't wait.

Think about it. It shouldn't be priced at all. Credits or otherwise. It should be done through a quest line like any other non lazy company would do these days. Not a subscriber? Buy it the same way it was available for the HK quest line way back. There is nothing sensible about what they've done here.

Treek is a mercenary. 83% of mercenaries work for whoever pays them.
From game design perspective, she is designed to fill those missing tank/healer roles that many classes lack in early game (Agents and Smuggler for example, they get their healer companions awfully late in the game). So making her "easy" to get seems like a good and sensible choice.
