Mako seems more like a little sister than a romantic interest. Maybe that's just me tho. I'd have preferred Kaliyo or even Jew'la Nightbringer as a romantic interest...
Mhmm, or Bloodworthy(? The human dude). Pity all that crap with the insane Jedi had to happen

Favorite Mako Moment (FMM!) incoming!

Spoiler


I was so excited to see Mako for this time's Companions 101. My first character was my Mercenary, so I'm pretty attatched to her.

Now, lets hope Khem Val pops up soon...

I never really liked Mako, I found her a bit annoying, she has too much of a 'morning person' attiude about her. Drove me nuts, so I ran with Gault. I suppose my favorite moment with her, if I had to pick one was when Braden died.

Tbh, I'm a bit ticked off that you guys are ignoring us Malavai Quinn fans. We've been practically begging for him since this stuff started. Now if you are alternating the bios between imp/rep, it'll be at very least May (but most likely longer) to learn about Malavai. I hope you guys do a really excellent job on Malavai's story, cause this sucks having to wait this long, and longer for him. :/
No Individual class/companion story extensions, make it technically challenging to pay a sub!

If they don't mention the Quinncident, I'll probably explode in fan-girl-rage.

Oh Mako, you bring me back some memories. You also taught me many things I knew not were possible, the first being, it is possible to hate a fictional character, as much as I do. The first time I heard her voice, I cringed. When she started as my companion, I cried. When she first spoke the words "I'm not just the pretty sidekick buster" I died on the inside. Me being a DPS Merc, I had to suffer through the horrible wrath of Mako until I got Blizz. I may be one in a million, but I really, really hate Mako. She (in my opinion) is not just the worst companion, but the worst NPC in the game.

With that aside now, I would really like to see one on Xalek, he is one of my faves. But for the Republic, M1 would be really cool.

MAAAA-KOOOO!

I love this little girl! Sure, she seems just a bit young for a romance, but I think the romance works very well. She is 19 at the beginning of the story, so by the end she would be what? 22, 23? It fits that she pushes away your advances until she gets a bit older. You can definitely tell she matures in the 3+ years the story covers. Favorite moment? Probably letting her watch me shoot Tarro Blood. Four times. Also when she watched me punch out that Alderaanian noble and, as always, had a sassy comment to make. As far as conversations, I'll have to second (or is it third?) the armor conversation. It's definitely different on a male (she's kind of flirting rather than complimenting), but it's still the same general statement (you look good in durasteel, I wouldn't). Maybe that's why she only wears medium armor.

As for the next companion? It's Republic, so I'm going to say either Qyzen Fess or Lord Scourge, with Doc coming in second.

My favorite moment was when I played the JC class line after the BH class line.

It was an unexpected treat to hear on of my favorite companions have another conversation *tear* (having it be with a Trandoshan even better).

Will we ever get new conversations with companions? or repeatable conversations on ship?
May the Force be with you

Mako is pretty cool and a nice friend for a female BH, but she got to be pretty annoying with her unnecessary nagging (when not even in battle):
"You ok?"
"Try to be more careful"

Mako's shouts in battle got stale compared with Gault's sarcasm or allure of Torian. Also as a healer Mako was not as useful as other companions. It may be fun to see Mako's reactions as a dark BH but I am LS.

From experience with the games' combat system with its companion system, if you are not a healer, this companion will make leveling and dailies vastly more easier to do, which tends to be a bad thing, especially if you didn't like the companion at all, luckily i do.

I would have preferred they made the companions not make an impact on combat difficulty at all, that way you could use any companion without feeling like you shafted yourself in a survivability point of view.

Overall, Mako is enjoyable to have around while leveling, she agrees with my stand point on mostly lightside, profit motive and revenge on a specific person, otherwise, i would have to skip the bounty hunter as a viable class to play, because i am not a fan of healing or tanking, which means, its use this companion or have more issues then you should have.
