It seems that healing companions are going to get nerfed in the expansion.

I haven't seen it documented anyplace else, so I thought I'd share it here:

Jakkaro's favorite companion gift is a Trophy.

I didn't want to clutter up General Discussion over this, but I did happen to try to use the Taskmaster set 4 piece during my run yesterday.

I had a level 75 Jedi Shadow Inilftration discipline. 2 piece Death Knell and 4 pc Taskmaster and one Amp Champ. all 306 rating mods. Nothing really augmented. Character iRating 306. A few pieces did have presence amplifiers. Grade 11 biochem Proficient stim. All the class buffs.
Companion was an influence rank 50 Nico Okarr. I used the presence drink from Onderon to boost my presence stats.

I ran the [HEROIC 2+]/Veteran mode Star Fortress over Hoth. I was level locked down to 70.

The 4 pc says "significantly increases attack speed of companion." I had Nico in heal mode, toggled off his channeled progressive scan and stun, so that he would do more dps.

I really didn't notice any difference at all between wearing that set in that encounter and when Nico is healing me normally on, say, Onderon dailies.

Anyone else have experience using this set?

Its hard to believe HK-51 is that bad as DPS comp, Hunter Killer abillity seems really OP

And what about H2-WF (from Natherma Conspiracy)?
Is it any good?

phalczen, The taskmaster set adds 3k alacrity to the companion. This took Shae from 11.2k dps to 12.3k dps in a parse. It's should also help with heals a little.

I've added parse details for DPS companions in 6.1.2d.

Dred is good as a healer or tank, his dps is just flightly bugged compared to other 2 weapon comps because his AOE only hits once. I have not tested the others yet. I'm not aware of any special skills that would give them an advantage over something like a Gault (Level 50, Gault (Sniper Rifle) 8350 - 6.1.2d). I'll do some gambling though and see if I can get one to test.

Ok thanks good luck with the gambling all those emperor tokens we randomly get all over the place that most of the time rewards 50 kingpin ones should make it easier than last year. Also if you could maybe add the locations for the various cantina presence increasing drinks and which location had which level requirement drink. That would be great addition to that part of it.
