If the strong talent is removed from him? How do you remove it?
I give my Lucky Jack some strength for the followin reason....

Lucky Jack Russel is a privateer, his basic attacks (Melee) use Strength.

Yeah, I think Juju boosts are done by class: Bucks and Privateer types get STR, Musketeers and Swashbucklers get AGI and Witchdoctors get Will.

Then Juju would be useless if Lucky Jack Russel has no Strong talent; he'd be using Will to attack with instead

Also, I tried Juju for Wing Chun, Juju increased his Will

Juju boosts your companions primary attack stat, in Lucky Jack's case that is strength. The Strong (attacks with strength) talent that was removed was rather unnecessary because it only appeared on buccaneer companions and a couple of privateer companions. There wasn't any other similar talents for other companions. They probably should have left it in for privateers and added a similar one to indicate the companion attacks with will, since there are some privateer companions that do (bison shaman for example).

Juju effects your comapnions by their class, because they never change weapons. If your wearing a set of handguns, and your a witchdoctor, youll get the agility boost because your weapon gets bonuses from that skill.

so...

companions- get juju bonus based on class

yourself- get juju bonus from weapon equiped

A couple of privateer companions? you mean, like Handsome Dan from the Admiral Bundle I believe? But with Lucky Jack Russel's Strong talent gone, I'm not sure whether or not Juju's really increasing the right stat.

Just because you haven't talented for strength doesn't mean he doesn't have any strength. When you talent for a stat, you are adding onto the base stat that grows with your companion as they level up. For example, at level 10, Jack Russell will have 25 STR. At level 12, that goes up to 26. If you have talented +1 Str, those numbers go up to 26 and 27, respectively. He still uses str, just has a little bit less of it if you don't talent for it.
