Ya he's simply there as a way to appease KOTOR fans.

I always use healer comp. It's the quickest way to kill things since I have no downtime. And let's not forget that when you get attacked by players (doing dailies for example), a healer comp is infinitely more useful than any other type of companion.

His assassinate ability is absurdly powerful. I don't care if you don't see the point. The rest of us do.

It's totally useless. The only way to make companions relevant is to have them in flash points normal and HM ones. And expanded there stories let them talk in flash mode. This is a story driven MMO problem is when you get to level 50 the story ends. And if you have all affection with companions this ends as well.

eh, i use jorgan with my commando. Everything dies really fast and i really don't lose much health. Elara makes the fights so slow and it takes longer to get things done.

I'd rather have an IG-38, C-4PO or R2-Z2.

HK-51 is more of a shiny ball to appease KOTOR fans.
