Mako is the exception to the rule is Mako. Good job Lacey, used your companion and maxed her out well before I finished. I had to switch.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic any day. 8/26/14 That was my old signature but after RotHC, I went back to superheroes and swords and magic. Now waiting on Dragon Age and a SWTOR story expac for my Bioware fix 7/30/15 Returned for KotFE. Finally, a story expac.

Sadly as soon as I get a healer that will be pretty much the only one I use in combat the others may come out for dialogues to get their affection up and then I am done with them. I must admit for the Imperial Agent getting his healer so late in the game was very painful as I used more of his companions than any other. Though most painful was my sith warrior who as a DPS has to use quinn despite that I would much prefere Jaesa.

Pretty much any companion I've gotten *after* getting the healer comp, unless they're required story-wise for a quest.
It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

Bottom line for me is (other then khem val) if you can't see a piece of armor change the way a companion looks, then you don't want to invest in them. I hate Quinn for many reason, but I needed him from the time I got him until the last chapter. Smuggler

But heal comps are vital depending which advanced class you roll, that you tend use them exclusively.

The One's I never use are:
M14X (pulls targets to you,again I hate that)
Lord Scourge (useless unless you Role-play Dark Jedi
HK (keeps jumping back to my spot I hate that)
Risha I hate her from the time I got her, just another sniper DPS same as the devorian and the twilek guy.
Most all of the tank/DPS companions I never used at all but Qyzen and khem Val, Myzen bomber for the win.

Quinn, Dorn,Tuno, khem, Theran, Vector, Qyzen, Mako I use all the time.

I may be the exception, but I did the entire sith warrior storyline solo without using Quinn at all for combat. I did most of Act 1 and 2 with Vette, and most of Act 3 with Pierce. Pierce worked fairly all right but was kind of too fragile for the tougher bosses. I never used Broonmark (I seriously don't know a SW who does, ever) and Jaesa was only rarely used.

M1-4X is absolutely hilarious in combat. Seriously, he shouts things like "As always, there is no option but absolute victory!" and "Such is the fate of those who oppose galactic liberty!" and such. He's best for duoing though.

The only smuggler companion I never used was Akaavi. Guss is by far my favorite, less because he's a healer and more because he's hilarious.

On the sorcerer I never used anyone except Khem Val. Ashaera Zavros would be booted off my ship if I could. She hates everything I give her.

Tend to use one or two companions per Class, the rest just get ignored
The ones I use
-Smuggler :
Risha, Guss, Corso

Kira, Doc

Tharan, Nadia


Bounty Hunter
Mako, Gault

Rest I either have no need for or do not care enough to use

I'm a Jugg and I used all of them. Well, Vette of course until I got Quinn, Quinn until I got Jaesa, Jaesa until I got Pierce - but not because he is so useful (the beginning was quite painful; he sucks so much and I frigging hate ranged tanks) but rather because I wanted his affection up and now I hit 50 and used Broonmark for a few quests just now because I gave him all my old gear and yeah.. I still don't know which one I'll use for the dailies.. well, probably Quinn I guess, but I really really really hate and even the asian recostumization doesn't help. I wish I could just turn his voice of and subtitles so I would never have to be bothered with him and his personality, gosh. But, yeah. Vette is fun, but kinda crappy after you get other companions. Jaesa is totally cool and two DPS is fun but really squishy, Pierce isn't really that good, but you can manage if you really want and Broonmark.. eh? I don't think it can be good using a tank who has much less HP than you have.

I surprised myself when I found myself never using Dr. Lokin. I mean seriously. What the hell, me!? I guess I'll have to use him the next time 'round.
