We already had that - Kira Carsen.

When was that ? I only remember Vette.

Or was that "lost in translation", too ? You know, since the CM's for the German forum don't exist anymore, these things often slip through.

Edit : I just noticed a blog entry mention Aric as well. Never noticed. Weird.

To me, Vette was number 1 in this series, and Mako number 2.

But, I play only since last November.

Edit : I'm still angry, by the way, that my Twi'lek Smuggler didn't get Vette. They would have formed an ideal partnership, imho. Instead he must try to get himself accustomed to Risha, which I - as a player - don't like at all (despite her excellent background story).

I would love if you guys did Doc or Nadia as the next Republic companions their some of my favorites.You guys already did a trooper and a knight companion so Nadia would be awesome but, no matter what you do all the companions are awesome cause you guys do such amazing work.

I find Mako to soft for the way I wanted to play my hunter and trying to go dark side I lost more rep with her then I wanted to so I had to start picking light side just to keeper happy. I spent a lot of crids on the buying gifts to win back the rep i lost trying to be dark side. I like to see Elara Dorne next. Or some time cause I know you did Aric Jorgan not to long ago .

Mako was sort of a light-side influence on my BH. If Gault were my healer I would've ended up dark level 1 or 2 instead of neutral.

I am just waiting for Malavai Quinn lol.

I didn't get too far into my bounty hunter's story so I don't really know yet what my favourite moment is.
Also my BH is female so I'll never get the romance story with her, lol not that it bothers me.
One of the previous posters mentioned that she liked Mako and running with her like a women only team, I find that I like that, too!

As for the Republic, I really hope the next companion is Lord Scourge, god that'd be awesome. I'd love to learn more about him. I'm the kind of fan-fiction author who will relentlessly search for as much cannon information as possible about characters I write about, haha xD so I'd really like to learn heaps about him.

But as I said I'm really just (eagerly) awaiting Malavai Quinn's post. I'm going to squeal when it comes up. Hehehe. I specifically want to know more about what he thinks of the Republic and why he is so anti-Republican, and:

So anyways Scourge, and then Malavai <3

I like scourge especially cause of his history with Revan but they already did the knight companion Kira who is imo the hottest comp in the game Jaesa comes close but Kira definitely wins cause i love redheads. I really think jaesa should be romanceable LS. Woah, got way off topic anyways, I guess i'm hoping for Scourge or Doc for the next knight companion.

So to sum it up a stitch in time saves 9

Do a write up on Quinn. With male players he's our 'don't ask, don't tell' Imperial Medic that sometimes heals/CC's well and sometimes just does whatever the hell he wants, but, for the ladies he's a bit more...

He's gotta be the most discussed, debated companion out there in /general. He's my favorite by far.

Quinn FTW.

Or are you asking for all companions to be able to do everything and you just pick the attributes you want?
like you could turn theran into a tank? or maybe make bowdar a healer?

and as for Mako, with BH being the only class to get their heler companion right of the bat basically makes the lvling experience so much easier. I would actually suggest going BH to a new player to the game/mmo's just because having mako by your side will definately make learning the game less frustrating because you won't die nearly as much lol.

My favorite bit of "comedy" with mako
I mean, i would have preferred that the companions presence not impact the combat as much as it does, i mean, if you are leveling up as dps, which i always do in all mmos, i have absolutely no interest in tanking or healing, using any companion other then the healer ends up giving you alot of issues, but the moment you use the healer companion, the issues vanish.

From a story and RP standpoint, its just a bad design, i mean, having 1 healer, 2 melee and 2 ranged whatever, yet making combat in such a way that required you to use specific companions based soles on your characters role is just a bad design method.

I could play Kotor or Mass Effect on the highest setting with any combination of companions and had no issues at all, though the boss fights were abit challenging, which is good, but the non-boss fights were fine, but in this game, its use the healer or be the healer or have issues.
