Same here, I use him for RP reasons and I cannot really use any other companion instead for this purpose.
It was not mentioned in patch notes, so I assume it is bug and that it will get sorted out asap.

From what I know, same thing with every other temporary companion you could have gotten by using this tactic. For example, Acina is no longer available, too.
Which is a shame, because my friend loved to play the game with either her or Marr (RP reasons). Now she can't, and I had to console her after this update happened: due to trauma, she reacts badly when things she loves are taken away from her for no logical reason.
And there is no logical reason behind this fix. It's not listed in the patch notes, and you could have done this little trick to get Marr from as far back as 4.0. And yet, in 5.10.1, they suddenly decided to change it.
Please, reverse this change, if you would be so kind.

I specifically bought a lvl 60 character a ways back so that I could have him permanently on one toon, for screenshot and fraps purposes for my stories. I'd like him back.
Well, I guess this is it, your Highnessness. So long!

Yeah! I've had him as a companion on some characters since 2015 ... I want my Darth Marr companion back too! Can you throw him onto the Odessen terminal?!

I would put money on the fact that our ability to exit the relevant chapter and keep Marr and Acina around was a bug, so "it's still not fixed" is just plain wrong. "It's still mended" is more accurate.

That raises a separate question about whether it *should* be allowed, and quite frankly I don't care one way or another, except to note that it will consume a non-zero amount of developer and QA time to change it, and there's a huuuuuuge list of things that are more important.

Hey folks!

Thank you for calling attention to this issue. We didn't really intend to remove the ability to use Marr and others outside of their respective chapters; this was a side effect of solving a bug that would have blocked progression through the Ossus storyline for some players (under certain conditions, the game gets confused about which temporary companion you should have, and chaos ensues).

As some folks have guessed, taking temporary characters out of their chapters was never really an intended or supported feature. But since it didn't really hurt anything or give anyone an unfair advantage, we decided to leave it in when it was discovered.

Given that some of you have put a lot of time into these characters, it is our goal to find a way to give you access to them again. Unfortunately, I can't give an ETA for when that might happen as we still have to ensure that any solution we pursue doesn't risk blocking players' progress elsewhere in the storyline.
