I'm also super curious about how HK-51 will be unlocked. I currently have only one character on the Rep and one character on the Imp. Once he's unlocked, if I decide to create new characters will I need to unlock him all over again? Will he be unlocked right from the start? Or will he be unlocked at a certain point in the game (like when you get your ship)?

I'm also hoping that HK-51 has a lot of customizations. I would like each of my characters to have a different looking HK droid. And while we're at it I would also like some ship droid customizations.

Surprised to see news so soon. Though it would be nice to have dailies on planets other than the ones we already have, rather than simply adding more to Belsavis.

Also "Game Update 1.5 PTS Patch Notes" not just too short but the tiny, it's frustrating. Bio just broke "old" content to pieces and share it with every "major" path...

Looking forward to getting HK-51, but I would have liked it more to get first a new warzone...

If no, why not and in which update can we finally expect them to be added? It's about time.
^^This. Happy about HK though tbh, they should have released him ages ago, like they said they would.

DEJA VUE ANYONE?

Please enable transfers to PTS so this can be tested so you can ACT ON THE BUG REPORTS?

Game is STILL unplayable for me so I am not very enthusiastic about 1.5 .........HK is probably being shoved outa the door to appease the players but the fact still stands that the game IS BROKEN. Like someone posted before, take away a useless companion and what do you have, not much else thats what......

I'm most interested in this whole 'you need one of each faction' thing going on with HK

Do you have to have them BOTH at 50 (or a certain level?) if thats the case than most people who play mostly Pub or Imp won't be seeing HK for a bit than. (My highest level 'Pub is 41)

Also - is it a long quest chain? Do you have to do a certain FP/OP/ect to obtain him?

Its a shame that only time will tell - hopefully the few that are able to get him in the PTS will be able to let us all know

Makes him less common, only die-hard KotOR fans will put in the time and effort to get him. It's a good idea. MMO players get it too easy nowadays, makes everything common junk, essentially.
