After all, the weapons are mostly just cosmetic now, right? No stats. So, does this open up more weapon options?
yea you should still be able to use w/e type of weapon u can now in the new system i dont think they have changed that. the devs have stated that anything you have accomplished with your companions wont change just the stats they have and what they do role wise is changing. i honestly wish they would let every cclass choose what weapon and style of that weapon they want. say a Jedi shadow/ Assasin. using duel wield. or a single hilt. and a Sith Warrior juggernaut/guardian using a Double Blade or Duel wield. along with a BH Merc using a carbine reg rifle. a simple weapon mastery system.. it would just take existing animations and put them in the spot they are used with the class they were made for.... cause I WANT TO USE DOUBLE BLADE WITH MY JUGG, sooo bad. or a carbine with my Merc

My Khem will never heal. I've healed him from Korriban to Ziost and will keep doing so.

What else are they now? You bring any of the comps along to support you while you're doing your thing, and frankly, the vast majority of the time, mine are dead because "Oops, you know, I'd bet they could take hits better if they weren't in the greens they came in". That's only a slight exaggeration. I do have comps that are set up, some in Yavin, some I spent the time to find gear that looks like what they initially came in, such as Jaesa on one of my SWs. But really, spending a considerable amount of time gearing them is actually playing dress up anyway, unless you just grab gear with stats you want, no matter what it looks like? If that's the case, then the new system will work out better for you anyway, it won't matter what you put them in, they'll be statted out correctly, and in a game where Ops leaders will kick you for not being NiM geared for a SM Op, that's a good thing.
