1. Leveling your lowbies (1M credits OR 350 CC per character). Previously I thought you had to be level 10 (Advanced Class) to access this perk, but I saw a pic of someone on the PTS at level 1 with HK-51 so that means you can be ANY level. As a matter of fact, HK-51 will make Korriban/Hutta and Tython/Ord Mantel a lot shorter since you can get him as soon as you create your character

2. Soloing Belsavis and Black Hole Heroics.

3. Soloing SM D7, BoI, FE or HM BT, D7, FE.

4. Open world PvP - outside of Outlaw's Den

5. Role Play

6. Leveling from level 50-55 (in late December, early January).

Query: You need more, meatbag?

Statement: All HK units are equipped with state of the art assassination hardware and software, making them ideal for high-risk operations.

Addendum: HK secondary functions include a large variety of customisable crafting options which will give you superior equipment in the field.

Will this be essentially another full fledged companion? Think it will have a story to fit the class storyline, or just slapped in there? Customizable looks/gear at all?

This is what I was wondering. I mean I love HK, but if he's not going to get -any- points from standing in the background, and is completely silent during every quest (aside from his combat speech) I'll be sad.

Sith Alchemy enhanced? Man, my main's a Sorc and I didn't even consider that idea.

Out of curiosity, are you going to be implanting Tsil-like crystals into HK-51 and imbuing them with as much Dark Side energy as they can hold? I'm of the mind to remove brain cells from a Jedi PoW and add them to HK-51's CPU. But I'm worried he'll complain about the presence of "Organics" in his system. I get enough bloody whining from Ashara.

You get 5-6 convos with him and he talks apparently during all Makeb content (which is either coming Dec '12 or Jan '13).

That's nice, but I mean during early levels. Like if I send him to a level 1 alt, I won't get to hear him call any of the NPCs meatbags? =(

Maybe he'll have a few stock phrases during combat, like companions do now? Like Corso's "Now you're dumb, ugly AND dead." et al. I guess we don't have to wait long to find out.

I'm willing to bet this is because there isn't a lot of lore to worry about breaking there.
If they were to make a story on Kashik I'm sure there would be people popping up complaining that it goes against some other Star Wars work.
