Frustration over when SI gets companions *SPOILERS*

PS: Balmora is the first planet you go to after Coruscant/Dromund Kaas. Then (if memory serves well) it's Nar Shadda and then Tatooine.

While BH has the same order of companion acquisitions, it seems a little unfair. See, for example, it means that the JK can start using his copanions for crafting much sooner than SI, thus being able to grind the Crew skills much faster.

And while Khem Val is superb, I got tired of seeing his face only after Balmora.

Any thoughts on the matter?
I played a SI assassin in beta, so I was bothered by the fact that my companion was completely useless to me until level 40 when I got my healer.

However, as far as crafting goes, it is normalized by level. You can only send a max of two guys to craft. I think it goes 3 from 30 to 40, then 4 from 40 to 50, and finally five max at 50.

Don't know what your complaining about. If you think that's bad the IA don't get their second companion until the end of Alderaan at around level 30.

Khem Val is great and all, but imho, he starts losing his usefulness around level 20.

It would be fine, but they unnecessarily nerfed the hell out of tank companions, so they are of very little usefulness now. As a result yes, it's a problem that you're stuck with Khem for that long.

This. He doesn't come with any gear and tends to be slightly moronic in combat, but he DOES heal, and when he's not busy punching things, he does a fairly decent job of it. (Provided you actually scrounge up some droid armor first.)
