I would have to say my least favorite are batacuda, scorpion and sky snake. I dont know if it's because they dont really have much personality like the character companions, or what, but right now I have them benched P

Okay, this is pretty obvious but
1. Crab Hermit
His attacking range is low, I hate Crab Crawlies, and his epic almost never works.
2. Nurse Quinn
Only good thing about her is that she can HEAL!
3.Monquistan Explorer
Sure sure, You like him at first, but then he is TERRIBLE!
4. Ratbeard
His Damage is just not good!
5. Weasel Gambler
His damage is low!

Why did I get all these bad companions?

Without a doubt, my least favorite has to be Nanu Nanu, the Water Mole Slingman. His attacks even with added roughness and accuracy are weak and miss nearly every time. Plus his epics are a little more than useless, what's worse as that he criticals only once during a blue moon. If I couldn't choose him, Bat Masterson would be a close second.

Batacuda is my favorite companion! obviously you dont give him enough points cause i have him at lvl 23 and he is really strong. as for my least favorite, ratbeard ratbeard ratbeard! i hate him cause mormo hates him and i like mormo.
Ratbeard is weak till you level him all the way up, reset him and work on block and resistance, he is a huge asset in Marleybone!

For me its Bonnie, yeah sure in the beginning of the game she's cool and all, but later on she becomes SO SQUISHY

As a privateer I have to focus on her whenever we're in a battle and she gets in because usually in a couple hits she dies. The other complaint... she does soo little damage compared to my other companions ( I tried to train here equally, but when I did.. she still didn't do any good damage.)

So for me... any companion is better then Bonnie for now
yea bonnie is so lame and does very little damage so she is my least favorite

How can people just hate Old Scratch?! He's one of my favorites! (After El Toro of course ). He isn't in my first companions line, but he's in the second, and that's really good. Sarah Steele dies at all the fights she does, ALL. But she is my second companion, I love her, she's really strong and was my firstmate before El Toro came, but she was dying a lot.

I really don't like Bones McGee because he has very little health, doesn't do much damage and spawns too often.

bonnie is VERY weak until she gets promoted, and while i'm typing, the bison are all tied for least favorite companions

Cross-posting from pirate101central.com.

Companions change with the area, level and the pirate class, Dont hate any, just not enough time to truly test each one on an individual Basis. Some Companions with few Epics do very well at higher levels on the right Pirate.

My least favorite is either The Monquistadors (Explorer and Crazy Monquistador), Nurse Quinn or the Crab Hermit. He's level 51, but his health is- ugh. (He is level 51 because I got him at level 49 :3)

I also hate the Weasel. Yuck, that guy needs to get some DAMAGE and health, not get killed

I dislike any companion that does not have any special skills. Not even a single Reposte or Veng. Strike.
But with that aside, here's a list of a few of my LEAST favorites.
(1) any of the generic monquistadors (crossbowman, spearmen, etc.);
(2) any of the generic water moles (not Mormo);
(3) any of the generic Buffalo Indians from CR (spirit, bowmen, shaman, etc.)
(4) any of the generic "animal" companions (i.e. Battacuta, Scorpion, etc.)
(5) Chicken Miner;
(6) Nadia;
(7) Nurse Quinn,
(8) Weasel gambler;
(9) Neko the Cat Ninja.
(10) Old Scratch;
(11) Hermit Witchdoctor;
(12) any of the Mag 7 (even with their new upgrades but they are terrible to start out).

My least favorite one is the monkey musketeer. I got him when I freed Gortez.

My least favorite companion would be Sarah Steele because she always gets killed off at like the first 3 rounds and even though I promoted her, she is still bad.

Who is the one companion who you really don't like? I don't really mean looks but just their fighting moves. For me it would have to be Nurse Quinn. Her damage is fair but her accuracy is only about 45 and her dodge is only about 40. Whenever I have her in battle she dies no matter what I do to keep her alive. So anyway,that's the one companion who I dislike most. What about you guys?

~Bloody Wolf Freeman~
Kan po. I hate that guy. It's EVERYTHING about him. Personality, fighting, looks, everything. Worse thing is, he calls me DRAGONFLY. It sounds like he is calling me weaker than him. I'm like ten levels higher than him. So please, If your a creator listening, try to change kan po. for witchdoctor sake

My replies: (some epic less ones are kind of good)

1. Man, the crossbowman is so BAD! He like, dies every time!
2.Naw, they're kind of cool.
3.He's strong, but dies fast. (I got Thunder hoof)
4. Even though Hannah doesn't have them yet (I switched to Romantic Hannah Devereaux because my previous witchdoctor got Gaspard de Vole, who I also dislike.), they can be a bit useful.
5. Never got him, but yeah. He is weak.
6. Who???????
7. Good thing about her is that she can heal. Otherwise, she is USELESS. I don't have her, however.
8. I don't have him, so I don't know about him.
9. I'm not there yet, but she's AWESOME!
10. You're right. He's USELESS. (Or maybe I didn't promote him yet?)
11. Don't have him, thank goodness. So I don't know.
12. What are those?

So some are good. But 1 and 10 are horrible!!!

"Kan po. I hate that guy. It's EVERYTHING about him. Personality, fighting, looks, everything. Worse thing is, he calls me DRAGONFLY."
The "dragonfly" part is a reference to an old tv show, Kung fu. The hero keeps remembering his childhood and his sensei who taught him. His teacher always called him "Grasshopper" affectionately, I guess he hopped around as a kid.

I was happy to get the crab witchdoctor, because I wasn't as keen on skeletons, but I wanted to have use of a witchdoctor in fights. Then I saw he has such low range and none of the talents of Old Scratch. I wanted to like him, but he was the most disappointing crew for me.

i would have to say Jabu Jabu if that was his name {the water mole} he only has cheap shot as an epic talent and he does not have any powers so that is really dissapointing...
