Treek worth it?

Is Treek worth buying even though I'm level 25? I know she only comes with level 10 gear, so will I have to completely upgrade her immediately?

Well if you're a Trooper or Bounty Hunter then you can just give her your old gear rather than vendoring it, as her mainstat is aim. If you're not an Aim user then it's really up to you.

I think she is only useful if you start with her at lower lvls like lvl 10, I used her on my most recent alt and at the lower lvls you are almost god like. Then you just naturally upgrade her armor as you progress which doesn't make her so inconvenient. If you are getting her at the higher levels though you will need to upgrade her armor which can be pricey if you don't have gear for her already or comms saved up to buy her level appropriate mod upgrades. I originally unlocked her on my lvl 55 sniper and the bother of having to upgrade her armor just made me not want to play with her since I already had well geared companions to choose from. Hope this helps.

I really enjoy treek, she kicks butt. I've used her on my 55, and use her as my primary companion with my sith sorcerer. She's good, but coming with lvl 10 gear is a pain. luckily I have a cybertech as an alt and just modded everything buying the enhancements.

I was thinking between unlocking Treek or HK-51 on my lvl 1 Consular and I gone with HK. Driod is a beast and available at lvl 1, unlike Treek at lvl 10. Finished Tyton very fast.
WIth high presence and all class buffs , I think dps companion is more suited for leveling than heal/tank companion.
For new players and their 1st or 2nd toon, Treek would be better.

Treek is worth it, I have seen her with others and she is definately a great comp, a cross between a healer and a tank, with decent damage capabilities.

Even with the cost of regearing her it's a no brainer.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.

You don't mention what Advanced Class/ Specialisation you are playing. Treek as a Healer/Tank is more valuable to certain playstyles than others. I have her across my 4 level 55's that I use for the dailies grind and find her a superior tank or healer than the tank/ healer companions I was using. She doesn't stand the test though if you are relyiung more on a DPS companion to get you through (TBH I prefer melee DPS companions when I go the DPS route as ranged just seem to stand around looking at the scenery rather than engaging).

I think those ACs without self heals such as Powertechs and Snipers would gain from the versatility of Treek, as would those that require situational positioning to make the best of their abilities like Assassins and Operatives with their backstabs.

I just got her yesterday and while her abilities seem good, i am starting to already get annoyed with her voice for some reason

So yea, just a heads up, the voice may annoy some people.

I think she is worth it. On my latest "project", a dps shadow, I grabbed her at level 10 {been level 50 legacy since before 1.1 and had the 1 mil credits [would not have bought her any other way]}. My main reason was that this specific toon has leveled only from FPs....and as such has not even gotten her ship yet. Which, of course, means no heal companion via story.

This toon is now lvl 54 {just dinged before server went down}. Now having a long established infrastructure allowed for gearing her and the specific toon in artifact quality gear {mainly so I could solo most FPs while waiting forever on Q lol} just about every benchmark point.

Long story short, she is worth it for toons that might have to wait a few planets to get their heal companion...and very useful for those not planning on even landing on Coruscant/Kaas befor lvl 55 lol. A silly "project", but when on your Nth toon never hurts to try something new lol. Did it "normal", did it all via pvp, now finally trying it all via FPs.

As another said...her voice can be super annoying {hated it right off}, but I guess I have gotten used to it lol. The trade off for me is hearing the sounds she makes when getting injured...those are priceless lol. I still laugh just about every time I hear them lol.
