I suspect they just wanted to prevent people from using the ship droid since it was supposed to be just a freebie joke bonus that came with the ship as that would unbalance well-thought-out companion progression blah blah blah.


Still, I wanna give him a danged pistol so he can pew pew while not healing me!

Speaking of droid gear, where can I buy some?

There is 0 galactic market droid gear available on The Fatman server anywhere near my level range, green or otherwise. The 3 available items (remember, this is for all slots, so most have nothing) are blue and wayyyyyy out of my price range.


I'll settle for a bunch of green, or even common-class junk, just so he's not naked. For a galaxy crammed with droids, there must be a droid junk or green-level vendor somewhere. High teens/low 20s preferred as that's where I am.



There are RP reasons to run with him (or not run with your other companions.)

Commendations vendors for some planets may have some if you have commendations

And heavy armor vendors on several planets for just credits.

(not a full set, just one item per vendor)

consider some low level oranges and upgrade the mods to make them level appropriate.


Also quests with companion gear rewards may offer some droid parts.

So...it's like having a car that's missing pieces, in the middle of an automotive nation, but I have to go to a dozen different vendors in a half-dozen states instead of Murray's Discount Auto, or the dealership, or a junkyard, any one of which would do.


Sigh

Or, you take up the crew skill cybertech, and you can make all the droid parts yourself.

or ask someone if they know a cybertech. We have one in our guild. Though most of the times she is making armor, mods and earpieces for us since she has maxed her skill and is working on re them .

Never used the droid in combat, but I did pull him out when I was at about 80% hp after a fight on my assassin(level 36) and the droid, being naked, did reasonable healing to me. Being able to heal or not, it's better to take something that can actually do some dps. Maybe if the droid actually has some gear he can be a great healer in a pinch and I've heard he has his moments. Personally I don't find it very lucrative to invest in parts for him, even though my healing comp isn't for another year or so =)

Let me guess - you're an Imperial Agent?

Fixed. Now if I could only find his vocalization module........

Just for ***** and giggles.. I fully outfitted my Agent's ship droid at L21 (since a heal pet is a pipe dream at that point)... using only pieces I could craft with my Cybertech, except a L21 shield generator I bought off the GTN.... (and no implants yet)

I was surprised to see his HP's climb to 5594 (w/ BH buff)

I used green mod-able sensor unit and cores, ( /w blue quality armor/mod/enhancements)... and the rest of the items were blue quality...

5594!?! My Agent with a complete Athiss set, including a few purple mods thrown in, is only at 4222!
