That happen in the beta too. i couldn't even craft armour for him and it was such a bother. they should have kept him range.

As a 25 Shadow, I've found that every 5-9 levels or so you'll come across a techblade reward from a quest, and those have kept Qyzen going just fine, for me.

As far as armor goes, I just equip him with heavy endurance/aim armor that, presumably, is for Vanguards (and the lizard, of course).

Haven't had any real issues with keeping him equipped with weapons/armor within 4-6 "ratings" of my own.

When in the Character panel, switch to Qyzen and hover over the Aim stat again, for him it seems to perform the same function as strength.

Far as I can tell the reasoning seems to be that it allows you access to a larger range of armor for him as Trooper stuff generally has aim/end stats.

Aim for qyzen performs the same function as strength and then some.

Strength improves his melee while Aim improves his melee and tech abilities.

You can get upgrades for his weapon on about every planet. Normally the normal weapon vendor in the main settlement has at least two upgrades, staggered over the level range you are supposed to be on the planet. Since I overshot the expected level for Taris, I just flew to Tatooine and grabbed the next upgrade for Quizen there.

The "bad" part about this is that the Techblades so far have all been green quality. Theran already comes with a moddable blaster pistol and you can buy excellent upgrades for him easily.


Pfew, I am so happy that I got my Legacy name now after four pretty grueling days of power-leveing and can dial back my playtime to sane amounts. ^^

The commendations vendor has weapons for every other type, other than Qyzen's techblade. He can not use a vibrosword or a vibrostaff, which there are plenty of. I think that the developers need to look at and reconsider how Qyzen is setup.

I was hoping this would have been fixed during the beta since it existed there as well.

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed this?
You can snag an orange techblade for him as a commendations reward, then keep it updated as he levels by simply swapping in higher level hilts (either as commendation rewards or from the galactic market).

At least I assume you can, since this is how I keep my companions weapons updated.
If trees could scream, would we be so willing to cut them down? Maybe we would, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

Could you point me to where exactly one can get an orange quality techblade? I'd to be able to update his weapon in that way, instead of relying on greens from the weapon vendors.

I think the devs made a mistake by changing him from a ranged tank to a melee tank and inventing an extra weapon type just for him. It shows that they didn't really put in the same quality of gear for him to get than other companions do.

Armstech can make techblades. At worst, check the GTM or ask a buddy / guildie who has armstech.

the reason he uses aim is because he only has one eye, aim does the same thing as strength for him and bioware thought it would be funny or quirky. as for armor and weapons, i havnt had a problem keeping him equiped, maybe some people just play the game wrong
