The real kicker is that I cant use him for Flashpoints, OPs or warzones so I probally not use him.

I suppose when Makeb comes out i could use him then for a couple levels but then its back to the crafting menu

Well, I'm hoping for Jumper_High_Impact_Bolt ! So he can take pop shots at players that seemingly have ants in their pants... The fleet would be a whole new world. lol

I don't quite get why he has to be endgame stuff. I admit, I like the idea of seeing more non-raid content for my level capped characters to do. By the time I'm 50, what do I care about having another companion?

If you use DPS companion you kill enemies faster and with healer companion "accidents" are much more unlikely, but it takes longer to kill enemies. I use both types.

If its pointless for you doesn't make it universal rule.

^ This. I'd rather have an HK talking snarky smack to me when I come aboard than the default ship droid telling me that the toilet bowl now smells of Alderaanian nectar.

Perhaps he's pointless shiny fluff, but I still had KOTOR flashbacks and peed myself when i watched the HK-51 intro vid.

DPS and Healers aren't useless - Stevoo soloed HM Malgus with a healer comp: try that with a dps or tank comp!
(No seriously if you can solo HM Malgus with a tank companion prior to the new level cap I'll eat my hat).

Now tank companions... those are useless. I had to have full Rakata on my Khem before he could tank HM BP and he ended up having the same mitigation as the 2 Columi Mara's that were with me (that's some baaaaaad tanking).
The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins.
It always wins because it is everywhere.
