Is HK-51 a... retroactive (?) character? Meaning if you pick him up at 50 you can gain his affection and companion cutscenes I'm assuming and stuff like normal companions right? But if you get him earlier on in your class story does he speak during class quests and react to NPC dialogue like your other companions?

If he does I might save him for my new trooper, but I would want to know what he says in all of the 8 class stories.

Considering he requires a character on both sides, I'm more curious to know if he is a "legacy" companion (once you unlock him, he's unlocked for all toons).

Oh? I haven't been up to date with HK news I assumed he had to be gained individually for each of your characters.

If he's unlocked once you do the quest once...does he just appear in your other characters ships? Guess he exists outside the class stories...

According to this interview; http://www.forcejunkies.com/2012/06/...taining-hk-51/

Yes, he should be legacy-wide.
I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest, honestly.

It's the honest ones you want to watch out for. Because you can never predict when they're gonna do something incredibly stupid.

" ...his dialogue, when he’s with you… all of that is obviously very different if you just decided that you have an assassin droid as a Jedi Knight, which I will say is a bit startling to him, versus getting it as a Sith Warrior. So yeah, there are completely different forks because it is a 100% developed companion character."

the quote about being a 100% developed companion character leads me to believe he will be 100% fleshed out like all the other companions.

...but I'm not sure he will be standing in the same room as all my other companions when my class quest has me use my ships intercom and all my companions gather and speak their mind.

So, does anyone know how long updates usually stay on the PTS before they're released? In other word, when can we expect 1.5 to launch?

Can't wait for HK-51!

Have to say I am very critical o this game (mostly because of lack of sand box ideas) but i am impressed that this update is coming out and it looks like it will beat the 6 week time frame and make it out before ftp. Plus new compion and dailys stuff i will actually do!

If no, why not and in which update can we finally expect them to be added? It's about time.
Speak for yourself, I HATE chat bubbles, they are the ugliest stupidest Idea ever implemented in an MMO. Considering that this is a story based game, which is supposed to be extremely immersive, the bubbles had better have a toggle or not be implemented at all.
