Hopefully the entire quest chain gets toned down. No one should have to hit max level to experience a new companion. It isn't like you're unlocking anything crazy to begin with. As much as I love HK, just not worth it right now.
Yeah, im basically just doing this in my spare time when im waiting for mission returns or something like that.
Its way too time consuming and obfuscated for me to bother doing actively.

The only known parts I know of are in Dromund kaas, Taris and I believe there one in the Flashpoint Foundry but do I have to do this every time I get a level 50? (I don't have one yet...

No. but if you want your companion for free each time, then yes.

What I mean is this - once you do the quests once on one toon, HK becomes unlockable from level 1 on all your other characters. However, to unlock them on those characters means you have to pay 1m credits to a legacy perk or a small amount of cartel coins (less than 300) - your choice. Or you can wait till that toon is 50 and get him the way you got him the first time without paying anything.

If you do get HK for a sub-50 companion, be aware HK comes with 50 gear and will not use most of his attacks. This can be fixed by removing all his gear and keeping it someplace safe, and as you level have him use level-appropriate gear. Even with level appropriate gear, I can tell you HK is a bad ***, having leveled a commando with him.

I like the idea of waiting until lvl 50 to get him.... and its nto so bad. My wife and I did the entire thing, just us two on a saturday.. We only needed to do GF for the last part since it was a HM. I wont use him with other toons either, I think the game is easy enough during leveling to use the standard companions, which also interact better with conversations for the leveling game. If you have the urge to rush to 50, then my point wont matter.

Is HK worth it, I think so.... and the missions to get him are fun to me, its different then the kill 50 here, 40 there and grind out this and that stuff. Fun, only because its different.... the only part we hated was Smugglers Den, because we hate PvP, but after we got killed once , we simply went to another instance that had way less peeps and did it without an issue.

I have just left the search no way to find the chest component after 2 hrs search.

How silly to design a quest in this way...

On Theoretika right now and thanks to a game guide, no problem so far.

I did read that you do not have to create or use an Empire/Republic character if you have a high-level escort. What does that mean?

I just came back this weekend and finished my Jedi Knight storyline, but don't have time to level a second Empire-based character for one part.

You have to a imperial character in order to get the part. No way around that. You can get someone to take you who is high level if you dont want to level to at least 13-15 to get the part, though leveling to 13-15 hardly take any time at all in this game.

Well fairly high level, doesn't have to be insanely, just needs to be high enough to take away aggro from you and kill the enemies you encounter.
