I recently saw an interesting topic on r/swtor about ranking your companions, especially the starting companions.
So here’s a list of the eight starting companions:
Khem Val, Vette, Mako, Kira Carsen (T7), Aric Jorgan, Qyzen Fess, Corso Riggs, Kaliyo Djannis.
Which one do I dislike most?
That’s kind of easy (and reddit also seemed to agree mostly), it’s Corso. Whiny, annoying, kind of a redneck. I even had to take him as a romance for lack of options :/
But this brings me a more interesting list. Which companions (overall) do I like or dislike?
Favorite companions (starting with most liked)
- Trooper: Aric Jorgan, Tanno Vik (somehow fun), Elara Dorne, M1-4X (funny lines)
- Smuggler: Risha (awesome), Akaavi Spar (kinda awesome), Bowdaar (kinda ok)
- Jedi Knight: Kira (not sure why), Lord Scourge (ok)
- Jedi Consular: Nadia (fun), Qyzen (earnest, but ok), Holiday (and Tharan)
- Bounty Hunter: Mako (awesome), Gault Rennow (good interaction)
- Sith Warrior: Vette, Dark Side Jaesa Willsaam (weird but good)
- Sith Inquisitor: Khem Val, Andronikos Revel, Talos Drellik (quirky)
- Imperial Agent: Kaliyo (chaotic), SCORPIO (evil)
Worst companions (starting with least liked)
- Trooper: Yuun (too weird, but he’s actually mediocre, or ok. not bad)
- Smuggler: Corso, Guss (reminds me of Jar Jar)
- Jedi Knight: Rusk (too bland), T7 (too beepy), Doc (too smarmy)
- Jedi Consular: Felix Iresso (too bland), Zenith (sentences too short, not that that bad tho)
- Bounty Hunter: Skadge (annoying)
- Sith Warrior: Broonmark (annoying), Malavai Quinn (too uptight, not really bad)
- Sith Inquisitor: Xalek (not sure why)
- Imperial Agent: Doctor Lokin (boring), Ensign Temple (unremarkable), Vector (long-winded)
Overall best companions? Consular, Smuggler, BH, Inquisitor (not in order)
Worst overall companions? Jedi Knight (only Kira rocks), Trooper (somehow none of them is awesome)
