From what I've seen the first companions tend to start off so-so, get better for awhile after their first promotions but fade into the background again soon, but they *really* shine after their second promotions.

I've only seen Kan Po at that highest tier; I'd mostly ignored him up to that point but with those final Epics he jumped way up into my top-tier group. He's not usually First Mate but Kan Po's been steadily in my top 5 since then.

Hey, I was wondering what your all's favorite starter companion is. Mine, personally, is a tie between Kan Po and Egg Shen, and I also like both they're Crown versions. My Swashbuckler Has Keisuke Yagi, Kan Po's crown copy, and my Buccaneer has Zang Cha, Egg Shen's crown copy. What is your favorite?

I used to love my Wing Chun, but then his accuracy started to not improve very much and he constantly misses, but I like having Kobe Jojimbo on my Buccaneer so much, that I might buy the Crownpanion version of him on my Musketeer.

Subodai, just because he's an epic buccaneer.

Many people don't give subodai enough credit even though he doesnt have as rough attacks as kan po and kobe he is one of my few companions that never dies in a battle he is very accurate much more than wing chun and kobe. He also his epics that he starts out with vengance strike and bladestorm and two other promotions i gave him relentless for both promotions and now he can get four perfect relentless like el toro which is very helpful. My second is egg shen i never had trouble with him at all and he was an amazing companion for my privateer. As for kobe and kan po i cant say i hate them or like them because i have only had three pirates( privateer, musketeer, and swashbuckler) one in which i deleted because i didnt like the class and the companions ( mostly Wing chun) much which is musketeer i just am not a gun type person i like blades more. But i have heard kobe and kan po are really good so now that i am done with my swashbuckler i might make a buccaneer or a witchdoctor maybe even give it another shot as musketeer pirate. one in which i deleted because i didnt like the class and the companions ( mostly Wing chun) much which is musketeer i just am not a gun type person i like blades more.
If you guys want tell me which class to be next between witchdoctor, buccaneer, and musketer

For me, the order of preference (based largely on appearance) is:

Subodai
Kobe Yojimbo (a.k.a."Burt" because he looks so much like Burt Reynolds)
Kan Po
Egg Shen
Wing Chun

Thing is, that's your personal opinion, people may have different views on the order, personally, I love subodai, but not everyone does, and I respect that

Subodai was the one I had in beta, so even though I'm now a privateer, he'll always be my favorite.
