So weird about this change. Doesn't fit some companions at all. A dumbing down? I understand the versatility but not sure I like this. comments?

Khem Val already heals you, actually...

Yeah, but now he will have a healing stance and healing only abilities. It will be weird. lol

But, since we can choose his role, it will not be a huge issue for me. He is and will always be a tank for me. If I need heals I will bring someone else. He could probably dps for me too however.

Yeah, but I assume it will be like healing companions now...he won't only be healing, unless you turn off his other abilities.

Granted, that's just me assuming how it will work in 4.0.

I hear you, some companions will always be what they have been to me. However, I will definitely be making Kira a healer as soon as I can and never look back, haha.

Vette and Doc will also be able to tank.

They'll also all be nothing but dress-up dolls.

How is having companions being able to heal/tank/dps dumbing down? So many people say this but I just don't get it at all...

It'll likely be a matter of just turning on abilities.
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

Yeah, I agree.

I do, however, think that you should only get one choice.

I don't think you should be able to change a companions spec on the run. I think you should only able to make the change the same way you would change your character's discipline.

If you make a companion a healer, that's your healer...no changing to DPS on the go.

That's my opinion...but I can understand if they don't go that route.

Finally, a reason to use those cunning pieces with shield on them! Oh, wait, they're getting rid of gear stats on companions.
