Because with their epic goodness they don't get as much companions as other classes. Think of it as a good thing. I know I do.

Every class gets the same amount of companions in AQ-3 (except Privs who get 4)

Hawkules is granted to everyone for doing the same main quest.

Zeena is granted to everyone for doing the same side quest.

Then each class gets the following determined by class:

Buccaneers-Eagle Hoplite (AWESOME!) (main)
Musketeers-Eagle Archer (main)
Privateers-Eagle Mercenary and Argos (main for both)
Swashbucklers-Samocles (side)
Witchdoctor-Serpent Augur (main)

I don't know about you, but three Aquilan companions are, kinda, enough for me:
  • Hawkules
  • Samocles
  • Zeena
And yes I am a swashbuckler

i managed to get 3 companions from aquila, and yes i am a maxed swashbuckler. however, companions arent my problem, 3 is plenty. my problem is that the prevent healing part of our third tier poison does not work. also, maybe i misunderstood its meaning, but gambit of steel seems no different than dance of steel.

You are not the first one I have heard these from. As my swashbuckler is not high enough to state my own experience, Perhaps Ratbeard can offer an explanation?

Gambit of Steel triggers enemy epic abilities, providing the ability to potentially hit all enemies several times.

I've heard of a bug where the "Curse" doesn't prevent Eagle and Legionnaire Shades from healing. Is this what you're talking about?

Also, the "Curse" could mean one of two things, and I'm not sure which.
1. Cursed enemy cannot be healed by self or team mates
2. Cursed enemy cannot cast heals

Hoping this helps,

Swashbucklers have good attacks so that's why they don't get a lot of companions in Aquila
