If you're a dps: Tank, no. Heal, no.

If you're a tank: Tank, no. Heal, yes.

If you're a healer: Tank, yes. Heal, no.

So what I gather from all the feedback is that companions aren't the greatest for tanking due to certain boss mechanics. So, if we had a player tanking, two players DPS, and a companion healing we should be able to go through all the flashpoints? Is there lots of spike damage during boss fights and will a companion be able to heal through it?

My friend and I did the first 4 FP's in beta. He tanked and I healed. Each fight is different though and sometimes we used 2 DPS companions and sometimes had a healer or a tank. I would say it depends on the fight which pet to use but I would recemmend at least 1 player healer and 1 player tank.
