Really? It's this hard to answer the question that you're asked or shut the heck if you have no favourite Vette moments? Do you HAVE to gripe about something in every single thread? That's a general 'you' not one person, btw.

One favourite moments is the cutscene prior to killing a boss on Tatooine, because I really like the times that there's companion interaction in the story, in addition to affection related cutscenes, and that's a good one. It's hard to pick just one, though. Vette is very entertaining and and really helped my warrior keep his sense of humor.

The letters you get from her at the end of her romance storyline are lol funny.

Suggestion for the next companion: Lord Scourge

This. It's written so well and summarizes all of the reasons why I love Vette.

I started my sith warrior as a full of arrogance and hatred, cruel pureblood sith. When it came to using the shock collar I was planning to stick to the characterization I gave my character and show no indulgence for Vette being so disrespectful. So I used the [shock] option the first time. Still Vette would keep being Vette and the game kept showing the [shock] options repeatedly, and after the third time I grew sick and I knew I could not keep shocking her for the rest of the game. So I decided to change my character for Vette, as I grew fonder of her the more the story progressed. She could make fun of Darth Baras when my "respectful and dutiful apprentice" could not, she would make all those snarky comments in my dialogues while my character was a dead serious killing machine.
In the end she changed my warrior to be a better person and I took more and more lightside decisions (eventhough my warrior was mostly dark side, he had quite a few ilghtside points).

I don't remember exactly when and how, but at some point in the early game I was growing to like Vette very much and I clicked on her, and for the first time I heard Vette say: "what? Are you afraid I'll leave you?".
It was this one time that the fourth wall was broken and it made me realize that it was not my character who was afraid to lose Vette, but me as a player who was afraid that Vette would leave my character because I did something wrong in the game (it was before I learned that from a gameplay perspective it was impossible to lose a companion...). And with her saying that phrase with that tone implying that she would stay with me no matter what, my heart melted

Yes, that's how much the game got into me. There were several other moments when the game got into me, but that's my Vette's special moment.

I *adore* vette. Off all the Imperial side female character companions, she is the winner by far.
1. her attitude
2. her usefullness for my Juggernaut tank

If i compare her to other starting companions on Imperial side, Mako, Kalyio and Khem, she wins with me, even though all companions have their pros.
I swear by Vette

Vette's all right, I usually swap her out for Quinn as soon as I'm finished Balmorra though. Because of this I haven't seen too many of her scenes, although (please don't kill me), I about died laughing when I saw the YT video of letting DS Jaesa shock the crap out of Vette. Poor Vette!

Who would I like to see next? A male companion please. It doesn't even have to be a romance option either. How about Guss? I love Guss!

Since this thread is also used for suggestions, I wanna suggest a guy companion next, please! Since it's Republic's turn I say give Tharan Cedrax the next spotlight!

I don't like Quinn Malave, even if it have a prrety face, is the weakest healer character of all companion that are healers.
P.S. I gave the collar from the Vette neck down when we entered in the first cantina that is on the imperial fleet because I don't wanted to treat her like a slave, but as a reliable companion that helps me, even though I have10k DS.
Actually, I'd say that Doctor Lokin is the weakest, because his DPS abilities and Healing abilities are mutually exclusive. Horrible stuff.


When we go back to Imperials, I want Blizz. Nothing can convince me otherwise.

As for Republic companions? I really don't want Aric Jorgan or Elara Dorne. The Trooper companions just don't appeal to me. Guss seems to be a common choice, so I'd go with him, or Tharan. The guy annoys me, but I'm very curious.

Now that my suggestions are out of the way, I find Vette to be a very useful companion. Sure, my Juggernaught can live longer with Quinn on the sidelines, but the important thing to remember is that I can't aggro spread out groups well enough to keep them off Quinn. With Vette, anyone that she attracts the attention of is someone she's about to kill.

What I don't like is the romance option. I didn't take it, not only because she feels too young for him, but more importantly, there's something extremely disturbing about it. She didn't choose to come with him, she was a slave who knew how to get me what I wanted. If she left, I would not try to stop her. Taking a romance option would feel wrong, as it would with Jaesa, who didn't have a choice either. Yeah. Lightsided the whole way.
Best way to end Smuggler Act 1 is

You can't make up stuff like that.

This thread makes me feel so left out. I really hope I'll get to romance Vette soon. I hate the fact that just because I play girl characters, a door gets slammed in my face.

Vette is the only companion who has seriously affected my game play. I started out my Sith Warrior to be the super dark evil warrior type and of course when I got Vette I thrilled in shocking the disobiedent slave every chance I got. But as it went along I started feeling worse and worse when I did it until one time when she was begging me to remove it and I shocked her again she was almost in tears telling me how horrible of a person I was, and I actually felt horrible! After that I couldn't play the character anymore, it made me feel bad to even look at it! I wound up deleteing the character and remaking her.

I tried to keep my dark side views even though I released Vette from the collar the first time she asked but eventually she converted me so I wound up with a light side Sith Warrior Vette is the only companion who has ever had that much effect on my play style, and I love her for it
