The Jedi Consular is both diplomat and warrior in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Their greatest role is in seeking knowledge throughout the galaxy, which can lead them into dangerous situations. The pursuit of knowledge can be perilous, even for a mighty Jedi but they are not alone. Like every class in SWTOR, the Jedi Consular can draw upon the support of five companions to enable them to achieve their goals. The choice of which companion to use will vary upon the situation and upon the player's preferred style of gameplay. To that end, Swtorhub.com has put together a complete guide to the Jedi Consular's companions, including their crew skill bonuses, combat acumen, and likes and dislikes.
Qyzen Fess is the first companion that a Jedi Consular will get while the player is on Tython. He is an excellent first companion, serving as a melee tank in combat, and will especially be useful to Jedi Sages for a long time. Qyzen Fess does a great job of drawing aggro on himself by using Trandoshan Regeneration and Taunt. He also does a good amount of DPS in addition to his tanking abilities.
