It really makes you wonder. How fast they can do content if they take this long to release this companion.
By the time 1.5 hits i should have 7 max lvl toons to complete this on.
Thats a grand total of 70 hours of something to do for $15. Pretty damn cash efficient IMO.

And your arguiing about boosting his affection? really?

I can gurantee that this companion took alot more than 10 hours of design time to implement for us, not our fault we can do things faster than they can produce them.

So long as it requires entry into a PvP zone to complete it is 10 hours of content that I will not be doing, which is a shame as I had been looking forward to doing something new.

I agree. It seems pointless to me to have a companion only available to level 50 characters since at that point you hardly even get to use your companions. I mean sure, you can show him off at Fleet. You can send him on crafting missions and use him on a few Dailies. And maybe you can take him on HM FPs if you don't have a full group. But OPs? No companions. PvP? No companions. What's the point? It would make a lot more sense if it was Legacy bound so you could at least send the completed companion to a lower level alt that actually make good use of him. At 50, I just don't see the point.

Yeah, forced PvP is another big turn off.

^ this. Even at 50, you can only send 5 companions out to craft, leaving you one companion who's either standing around stupidly on the ship, or humping your leg waiting for you to leave fleet. Sending a lvl 50 companion down to a lower alt would be pretty awesome. An example, Bounty Hunters generally unlock Mako's (leave the ship) quest by around 25-30, but your targets are nearly 40. Solution? Screw 'em, I'm bringing HK to whoop em.

No more begging guildies/random people on planet to help (provided you have a 50 that unlocked HK anyways)

Would be nice, but it would trivialize the quest needed if he was a low level companion. It would also require them rewriting every single quest in the game to include HK which probably would mean we would never see this companion. Also with Makeb there is the rumored level increase which would mean pve with your companion. I personally would like to see BW investing in voice/cinematics for end game/expanded levels rather than the perfectly fine levelling content we have today.
