I used Risha from the moment I got her until I finished the game, got all 5 comps 10k/10k using underworld trading.

Who needs heals when you can clear entire groups of mobs within seconds thanks to Risha's amazing DPS and your obnoxiously powerful burst?

i want to agree but i cant take this thread seriously with the way the OP types. makes me think they are a preteen that just wants to complain to get attention. ):

for the record, there are also DPS scoundrels and they are nerfed in the companion department just as much as gunslingers.

I found its a good idea to gear up and gain love points with the ship robot early on. Then when you run into one of those sticky moments you can call down a fairly good healer.
If you return from a mission, with a kill on your record, .

While C2 is a half-way decent healer in a pinch, I have to say it isn't quite the same as a legit healer companion. His "boxing" isn't the same as other healer companion dps, and if nothing else, you're missing out on some decent companion dialogue and/or companion affection points.

You also can't give C2 your old gear. Unless you're a Cybertech (or know a Cybertech who owes you a favor), droid gear can be a pain in the butt to find.

Corso is completely awesome. I used him from when I got him to 50, with a few minor hiccups when I tried out my new companions and found that they sucked in comparison. Died multiple times using Guss, as I couldn't down mobs fast enough, even with heals. Same with Risha and Akaavi. Only thing is, now that I'm gearing my companions in Recruit, Bowdaar is better than Corso. Weird.
