I didn't even know that was a option (I never really looked). THANK YOU.

I spend a lot of time keeping all my companions geared and this will help make things much easier!

If you are hunting for techblades/staves for Akaavi check the main weapon vendor on each new planet - they all carry at least 2 levels of techblades/staves, although the weapons are green they are still an upgrade. My sage has been having the same problem with Qyzen and that is my current solution, atlhough I am also watching the GTN for folks selling crafted techblades at something approaching a reasonable price

I run as a 38 scrapper specced smuggler scoundrel with corso and i have no problems with him tanking a single elite to a pack of 3-6 mobs no sweat

He has a AoE taunt and the single taunt and harpoon shot combined with tranquillizer shot on another mob allows for interesting engagements

I found bowdaar lacking in the area that corso fills (Being melee limits his usefulness to me)

Risha is very good for fighting elite's if i hold aggro and kite with tendon blast...but if she gains aggro...shes not a tank..and that limits her usefulness outside of dps

The other two i am yet to use more than once

That robot everyone gets.....can we please have a mute button for...every time i go past him on the ship...makes me want to take the escape pod

LOL

It'd be nice if we could launch him into space!

I got Corso, Bodar, and Risha good gear now and comparing them is a bit easier now.

All in all they all have their uses, but I still like my Wookie the best. I think the reason is because as a Gunslinger leaning on the Sharp Shooter side I possess enough firepower to take down just about anything. I just don't have enough armor or health to get beat on by anything. It looks good on paper with my 6000+ health and 2000 armor. But if something looks at me funny I'm dead in a few second.

Corso does a fine job of keeping agro off me, but Bodar runs out, engages all the melee mobs, and focus them into a tight group. Then I just rain the pain.

Side note Risha and I take things down faster, but on an elite mob I tried 3 times to kill, I could not. If it agroed to her she died before delivering much damage, then it agroed to me and smoked my butt. Same when done the other way around. I wiped out Bodar and we both lived though the fight.

BTW 39th level on Quesh when I attacked that one Elite.

I think the findings would be different with the scoundrel because you could just heal her up faster than they can beat her down. And her damage output is pretty good.

Another note: The same person who voiced Bubbles, and Ben Ten, Raven, and Holy Quin. Does the voice for Risha. Very cool.

Thank you for information on Bowdarr. My first character was a smuggler specifically because I wanted to hang out with a wookie.

I immediately summoned him and took him out and he died first fight. Bowdarr has not seen the outside of my ship since then.

I will pull him out tonight and gear him up.

Akaavi is a killer but so am I. She is making me look bad.

Are you saying she is killing things too fast or that she isn't killing things fast enough?
