I'm an arsenal merc and Mako being a healer makes my life so much easier. While I'm busy taking chunks out of enemies lives (strong, elite and champion) she worries bout my health for me

2) Torian is the best when you're geared. Killing trash mobs more quickly is better than killing trash mobs more safely

Mako is easy mode. Gault is way more fun on all levels, esp if you're not going goodie-two-shoes.
I find your lack of faith ... Impressive. Most impressive.

Agreed. On my powertank, I ran with Gault until I got Torian. Killing was just too slow with Mako. And with taunts and defensive cooldowns, little health was lost between Gault and I. And even though I went goodie-two-shoes, I think we had good chemistry.

The reason why Torian is better than Gault is because Torian uses Aim gear. You can give him your old Rakata without changing anything.

As far as Gault....good luck with the Columi vendor

I have preferred Torian's combat capability, but Mako is better on PvP server. I like her as well - customized

Besides the discussion healer / DPS companion, I preffer to go with Mako just because I love to hang out with a hot chick! By the way, the levelling was a piece of cake and we could even solo a lot of Flashpoints! I really love healers, that's why I married a hot medic in Real Life...

Will add to the vote pool - Mako is my preferred "go to" companion. The only other one I will run and NOT get frustrated with is HK-51. Selection is now down to clearing trash quickly with HK, and can I dps things fast enough I do not die, or....is this a longer quest line, and I need healing?

Having HK is much faster to clear the trash and questing, and I seem to use him more on the planet quests. Story line - no question - Mako is it !

The first time I thought she wasn't helping enough we were doing a class mission on Corellia in the Green Jedi area. I looked at her gear and noticed she had mid 20's blue implants, and most of her armor was mid thirty blue. I went to the fleet and spent very little to get her better gear. No more problems.

I use Mako everywhere. Keep her geared up and she has kept me alive thru nearly anything I think of jumping into.

Gear here up, turn her offense abilities off and then control her when u need to - she will be able to heal HM flash points. What more do u want from a companion?
Kovacs - Powertech Warped - Marauder
Hypnotik - Operative Simulcra - Sniper
Margorach - Sorcerer
