Scavenging bonuses? it would have at least been better if he had more depth besides "RAW KILL FOR SITH CLAN" or if he at least had the decency to refer to me besides "Sith clan"
I had a friend trying to convince me, that there is something wrong with me because I don't like Broonmark.
I'm glad I'm not the only one, who simply can't stand the guy.
I don't know why people use such big words sometimes. On the other hand, why be a wise-a*s when you can be a sagacious rectum.

Sorry for a Vanguard, nobody is better than Elara. Now for a commando, yeah she is next to worthless.
you must be speaking of healer commandos, as my DPS commando totally enjoys toting Elara around.

^Seconded, sister. I LOVE Elara! She rules at healing my DPS commando, and her voice is just mmhmmm! Then again, I have a thing for a lady with a sexy voice and a high class English accent.

Thirded, plus she is the best healing companion in the game since she is the only one who uses heavy armor and she uses the same main stat as the Trooper so you can just move equipment and mods to her from your Trooper to her making it really easy to keep her gear updated.

What's ironic is that Belsavis and Voss gave two people that should've been companions and were more interesting. I mean at least Theran had Holiday.
BW may have fixed this by now, but I originally used Qyzen Fess as a tank. Once I got Lt Iresso, I swapped all the upgraded gear from Qyzen to him, picked up a pvp blaster rifle (moddable) and was good to go after a few minor changes. Comparing Qyzen, the aim-based techblade/shield generator-wielding melee-dps to Lt Iresso using same except blaster rifle...

Qyzen's threat generation skills (single-target-4-meter-range sunder armor Guardian Strike and aoe Hunter's Surge abilities) and a single-target Taunt are severely lacking enough area-of-effect power to keep mobs off the Jedi Consular.

Lt Iresso's threat generation skills (five-target-8-meter-radius-damage-reduction aoe EMP Blast and 15-meter-radius taunt Flaregun) and a single-target taunt ability Distract are far and above the best companion skills in my mind for keeping a mob's attention away from the Jedi Consular.

As far as uniqueness, Qyzen is missing an eye and is fully scaled. Not sure he can be romanced, but I have heard rumors of him sleeping around. Just kidding, but I think adding a good 15-meter aoe taunt and making Guardian Strike 8-meter radius affecting 5 targets would be good for those holdouts that refuse to stop using Qyzen.
Life is a delicate negotiation. cake is a lie and this is all a figment of your imagination. And the sith code about passion... interesting...

Qyzen also has a 15 meter AOE taunt, as do all tank companions.

Resurrecting a thread...

My biggest problem with my Consular's companions is their boring personalities.

Qyzen: hunt, hunt, hunt, the only praise he has for my consular is when I go feral
Tharan: Holiday Holiday Holiday, completely wrapped up in himself, irritating and vain
Zenith: the only one I sort of like, even though all he cares about is The Revolution
Nadia: low self-esteem, constantly seeking approval - nice girl, but where's your spunk?
Lieutenant Iresso: snore

I was so happy when HK-51 came out.

Advice on how to make them better? Make them more interesting, less single-minded and self-absorbed. Have some of their comments when you talk to them be nice instead of talking to you like they'd rather be rid of you.

Qyzen: *growl*
Iresso: "don't push your luck", "nice armor, I know, but the staring is getting weird"
Zenith: "I know what I'm doing."
Tharan: "Just one moment, Jedi". "Holiday, a little help", (huffs) "Moving along!"
Nadia: the only one whose comments are nice.

It's reached a point where rather than talk to them I want to roll a Sith Pureblood just to slap them.

For the Jedi Knight, honestly I love him, he is totally awesome, but I'm going to have to say T7-O1. Frankly he does an extremely low amount of damage, and isn't very good at keeping agro. I also hear Rusk isn't much good either, but I don't have him so I wouldn't know. For the smuggler, I'm going to say Bowdaar. I had really high hopes for him being a wookiee and all, but he does very little damage and is hard to keep geared. Even when he is geared, he isn't as good at tanking as Corso.

People may find Iresso boring but next to Rush, ranged companion for the JK, he's the best there is in the game. Rush, after finishing the planet where you meet up with him, just falls on your lap, out of nowhere, simply because you need a ranged DPS. Having in mind how the other companions are introduced and how much I loved them all - especially Scourge - the introduction of Rusk is just underwhelming.

Also, shouldn't the game take into account that my female Consular actually married him? Feels weird to me that he would protest at the fact she's staring at him. I mean, seriously...?!

Ashara. She's annoying, she seems to think she knows everything, not to mention that she said she wanted to pilot my assassin's ship because she did fine in some simulator, if I remember correct. But Andronikos said no and then that little girlie had the guts to whine about it to me, assassin who was a. In Dark V and pretty clearly couldn't care less about Ashara and B. married to Andronikos. Andronikos is a fine dps, I don't need Ashara, I don't like Ashara.

Nothing wrong with the character itself actually, her personality is thought true and she follows it, I just don't like it. At all. You just can't please everyone.
