So then, why do i regret buying her?

Because, all I hear with her around is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnrnGX01VzI

I purchased Treek for my 55 shadow to use as a healer for dailies instead of Theran because of all I read about how awesome she was. But I can't say that I see any difference between her and Theran. I've read Treek is awesome for leveling up, but I can't recommend buying her for 55 end game stuff.

Really, you can solo everything up to the first boss in Manda Raiders with treek. I did. I didn't come close to beating that encounter, either.

That there is my regret about her, she is so awesome that using any other companion feels lackluster as far as completing content. I'm about to get (well, she was introduced) Nadia on my consular, and I want to try her, since she's cute as balls, but I don't want to struggle.

The best companion as far as comments from them, is Jaesa, when you go full darkside. She
gets very evil sounding.

here are some of her comments:

"I'll taste your blood!"
"I've heard that blood freezes instantly when it hits the ground here(hoth). I look forward to seeing that myself"
"More Nerfs to the Slaughter!"
"Your death is NOW!"
"Their Pain is exquisite"
"Who do i kill?"
and my personal favorite "I will make you SUFFER!"

This chic is just twisted, but in a fun deviant way.

Blizz rocks, too bad he is on on bh class.
Quinn is a hateful medic to foist upon us as a medic. WHY would a sith warrior not kill him?

Why are most of the medics wimpy guys? Ever see Saving private ryan? that medic fought
and even told his squadmates how to help him, when he was wounded.

Offer us a a tough dude as a medic. Human or non, but tough as nails. Lokin is pretty cool, but is
weird and has the the dr jekyll/mr hyde thing going, with him. How about a Bothan medic, who can cloak.

Player playstyle is an important factor when choosing the most optimal companion.

If all you need is a healer, Theran is the better choice IMO. However, Treek is better IMO as an overall utility companion in a fight. Let her take the agro and you will find her better then Theran. But if you insist on holding the agro.. Theran is better because you need a primary direct healer. Treek is more about HoTs, which are fine in many cases, but not all cases.

That said, yeah.... for leveling... Treek is par excellence as she has very high utility.

Theran's actually the better healer imo because of Holiday (those spammed interrupts are just too nice) and frankly, as a healer, I've found Treek to be decent but nothing really spectacular. I've tried her on most of my alts ('cause, well, how can you not love a fireball throwing ewok ) and to be honest places where she doesn't shine the greatest is in healing and DPS- other companions do better.

That being said, she is wonderful for leveling as others have said and also just rocks as a melee tank so, if your play style's more towards "Hide Behind the Tank You Sent In To Take Aggro" then, she really is one of your best bets because the others: Kailyo, Khem, Qyzen, etc, etc, etc, just seem to be more paper then anything else in comparison by the time you get to the higher levels no matter how well geared you keep them.

Granted, this is just my experience but, I have just been loving her with my Snipers and Gunslingers- the difference since I switched to her is very noticeable to me even at level 55 with the same level gear as my other companions on those alts.

TL;DR?
Like all the companions, Treek is good at what she does and worth getting if her strengths fit your play style and you work with them or just get a kick out of her craziness. Otherwise? I'd recommend HK if you want something different.

Lol.. the bees are a nice touch. I wasn't expecting that and did a double take on the stun thinking my computer was lagging out the first time I saw it.
