Why for example is Malavai Quinn have a +10 to Arms Tech and he is a Sith Warrior Companion? A sith warrior would be unadvised to even invest in Armstech as a crafting profession with so many other crew skills out there that benefit him? Why did BioWare choose this method anyone have any insight on this?

Smugglers get Risha before Akaavi. T7 is a ranged tank, Lord Scourge is a melee tank.

Unless they REALLY screwed with Agent companions that last beta build, it should be:

Kaliyo: Ranged tank
Vecotr: Melee dps
Lokin: Healer
Temple: Ranged dps
Scorpio: Melee tank

Anyone know what gifts C2-N2 (the ship droid) likes? Cause it seems to be a combat pet now too (though a healing only one) with an affection rating.
