The guide says that Ensign Temple is good, but there is note that it is before her respawn. What does that mean? What happened after her respawn?

I have her on my assassin who finished all the story and she still seems to dual wield. I want to use her for healing, but I'm not sure if something was compromised.

If you hover over Veeroa's Finishing Strike, you'll see it says "Instant" up top.
If you hover over Master Ranos's Finishing Strike, you'll see "Activation: 0.98s" up top.

The difference is super minor, I spent half a night parsing just trying to confirm there was a difference and then what it was. I believe that finishing strike difference is consistent between all light and dark users.

He's listed under assault cannon in video. Rating 9 of 15 (if you count shae). 8677 mid dps. He's not bad at all. It's fun to have a different looking companion, especially on the imp side where you don't see cannons often. Standard, non bugged ranged comp.

I had some strange issues with getting her to equip her second pistol after her return, I think it's resolved now though, so she should be fine.

Thanks for the reply, hadn't noticed this (I need new glasses! )

Now I see that I misread the dark/light bit. I mistook it for Character alignment, not Companion. As in, if my char was Dark and I used Veeroa, I/she would gain a bonus, but not if I used her on my Light char. I get it now. Thanks, and I do hope you update this thing with 7.0

Hey Kev, nice to see you active in this thread again. Have you had any time to parse Altuur yet? From what I've seen he does really nice DPS and has some unique abilties that do well but would like to see parsed numbers.
