New Level Cap means new solo (Makeb not Class) content. Therefore HK-51 will be useful for doing the Makeb missions and possible bonus series.

It's HK-51. That's reason enough for me to want to have him.

probably will get him, but not a priority for me... I'm better off with a tank companion in columi/rakata gear.

A bit sad that he is more of a "prize" than useful. I have a few that could have used him as DPS. This way I have to settle for my healer. Not a bad thing to get to choose between Scorpio and HK-51

I wonder if they have special text, since they ARE some... murderous droids, after all.

You can easily have him out when youre doing daily quests. He probably can tank aswell.

If he was available from launch, I would have used him full time while leveling my characters. I really cannot be excited about HK-51 so late after launch. I don't do dailies, I cannot even stand the character creator screen, let alone start leveling another toon and I believe he is available only to a level 50 character.

Allow me to say, 'MEH'.

Just so you know, I most definitely played KOTOR more times than you did.

QFT! Played both kotor AND SWG which HK-47 (the proper one) made an appearance, and I really dont see the point of releasing ANOTHER bugged update, mark my words, it will fail badly again, let me put it this way:

It is the definition of insanity to repeat the exact same action and expect a different outcome...........

Every class gets ranged and melee DPS, ranged and melee tank and heals. So any new companion is going to be redundant if they fill one of those roles, and if they made him a tank or heals, then he'd be completely useless as a companion for people playing a tank or heals. DPS is something that's always useful, and as others have said, he's there to please KOTOR fans.

If what I've read in the boards is true this is another 'slap in the face' patch for soloers.

Unless he allows me to have 6 crew members out at a time, I don't see a point either. I'll just get him for the story and what not.
