Is he just bad or something? Gear hard to upgrade? Smells bad?

He doesn't have harpoon shot and takes damage like a hollywood actresses psyche.

He's not bad. Just not as good as Guss Tuno. Guss Tuno's AI is written really good and he stuns/heals very well making him the ideal companion for PvE and PvP. Risha is also pretty popular to use simply because it makes us feel like a real dps class glass cannon... she speeds everything up a ton, but you also have to be very smart or very well geared to use her efficiently and it kinda gets tiresome managing CC, defensive cooldowns, making sure your assisting her on targets etc. after a while. Guss is easymode, you click him on and don't have a worry in the world, he's also our only companion that CC's.

It's worth noting tha this CC is also channelled, os he isn't going to heal you while he's CC'd. I used Risha until I geared out Akaavi, and I can tell you right now that Risha crits higher but Akaavi's DPS is pants on head retarded and she will probably get nerfed.

I use akaavi, I've used her to kill 2 players at a time in open world PvP as I ran around being chased by them and healing through their damage.

If you have her geared out she will train wreck just about anyone.

PS: Bowdaar sucks, just because he is a wookie does not mean he is any good.

Yeah, pretty much this. Akaavi gets really good as you gear her. I just put her on silver mobs and I clean up the rest.
