So... what exactly is the point of HK-51? Every class already has a character that can fill every necessary role. Is HK-51 just fluff then or does he provide some actual in-game benefit? No one seems to want to answer this whenever I ask it. Yes, I do see the marginal bonus to "all" crafting. Is there anything else?

Just to head you off at the pass, I'm not hating. I'm asking. There is nothing cool about fluff that (nearly) everyone has. That's why I'm curious about some kind of substantial (as in, worth the effort) benefit for acquiring it.

Thanks.

Funny. I thought the implementation of the Cartel Store was the Rise of the Hutt Cartel. And no, I do not like what that story has to offer. I keep getting screwed in it.

Oh, I thought you were saying I implied it was out. My bad. No, it's not out yet. (I still have a hard time referring to droids as having gender... despite how they look.)

I admit. I didn't even read the OP. I just read the response in the dev tracker and my old, unanswered question sprang back to mind. LOL

I like my ship-droid, so hope I get to have both him and HK

And for the person who didn't want to play a republic good guy, roll a evil JK. My friend has had a lot of fun playing a evil jedi...

Somewhere in a class-story not far from you

Random guy who has done something bad: "Yes, I did wrong. But you'll let me go... right. I mean, jedi's are good, you know taking care of people and such... right...? "
Evil Jedi: "NO *stab stab*"

It worked wonders for him. Actually going along with him to class-missions was a bit like watching a accident, you know it will hurt but can't look away. Will probably never be able to play a evil char myself, but it was interesting to see it. Just my 2 cents, happy playing.

It's not *****. It's an opinion. Why is it that anymore when ever someone has a differing opinion on something it is "*****" ? Please grow up.

I hope he's at least a little better in combat than your other companions to make dailies a little less mind numbing.

I have NO care for playing any Republic good guys. So. essentially I am being forced to play hours and hours and hours of something I do not want to play at ALL in order to earn something. Wow....talk about ruining the fun of this game. As if doing dailies and FP's over and over and over and over again once you hit 50 wasn't boring enough....

Sounds like the people at Bioware enjoy being bored and making others be bored. Plus, running out of ideas to make the game FUN!!!
Not just people that only play one faction, but people that may have a 50 of both factions but on different servers also lose out.

Don't worry...I'm sure you'll be able to buy HK-51 in the Cartel Shop for the low, low price of 1000 Cartel Coins.
