Holiday ... Is she bugged? She pulling ads when she randomly dancing around. If you fighting group of ads on the edge of other group of ads vision , she pulling them when she appears. Is that normal? She is just a holo. She shouldnt get the enemy npcs attention. Not to mention , we are not calling for her out at all You may die a lot because of her.

Sometimes groups of mobs aren't separate groups at all. I've died many times because I thought groups were separated but they weren't. But that's exactly what Holiday does when mobs need to be controlled and kept from hitting/shooting you/companion.

Er, that's the whole point of her, in combat at any rate. She distracts them with her sexy dancing (quite why it works on things that ought not be interested in such things is another matter entirely).

She permanently has this effect on Tharan, too. He's more interested in his sex toy that he can't actually touch than any woman with a real body that he can. My naughty Sage found this out.

Oh, they are separated , Im 100% sure. They are standing there like a statues , but when Holiday start to dance they are hitting her and then attacking me. Try to play with Cedrax on mega-super-duper-high-ads-populated Makeb

Seems like a bug, as the Holiday ability is a single target CC as far as I'm aware. It shouldn't be affecting anything other than the group you are fighting, I wouldn't have thought.

Or maybe you were just accidentally too close to the other group, and Holiday's appearance was coincindental? A lot of folks have this problem with Makeb without Holiday getting involved.


Pure speculation on my part, don't run with Tharan much, I still prefer my big lizard guy.

Im sure its her fault. Well , its not a big deal I can handle the mobs but sometimes its annoying cuz I dont need to kill that much ads to finish the mission or to clear the way.

I prefer to play with female companions , available for romance. But its easier to use your healer. Its really hard for me to kill elites or bosses with dps/tank They are drinking my health really fast.

My Sage is a healer herself, so on my ship Tharan is just along for the ride. As the romance between them petered out due to his obession with his holo-girlfriend he is now neither use nor ornament.

I'd quite like to kick him off the ship, actually. The noises coming from his cabin are rather unsettling.

When I ran with Tharan I turned Holiday off. Not because she was pulling agro, but because she annoys the crap out of me. If only I could have turned her off in the companion conversations too.

I propose you to turn-off Holiday. As long as Holyday is here Tharan isn't doing anything either... and he may attempt to use it on un-controlable NPCs.

As long as companions' mezzes are channeled, they won't be worth of enabling in my opinion.
