Did anyone actually USE Javik?
 
This was one of the first missions I did and I used the Prothean on ONE side mission. Never really saw any value with using him instead of Liara or Garrus or even James. Anyone see any value? Am I missing something here regarding his usefulness?

I kept him for my whole first playthrough. He adds a lot of interesting dialogue. Has some funny things to say.

But purely on combat efficiency, ya we have better options than him imo.

ive used him quite a bit, just because i find him interesting. i also love the fact that bioware created dialogue for him and others regarding him throughout the game, they could have just been lazy and kept him quiet in cutscenes, but people interact with him because he's obviously unique.

JuSt BLaZe 03-10-2012 05:51 PM

Yay!!!
 
I use JAVIK everytime. Gotta luv his cool comments. His PARTICLE RIFLE is just badass. UNLIMITED AMMO for everyone what do you want more. Also his biotic power DARK CHANNEL is quite useful. Not to mention that his weapon and power are all EXCLUSIVES!!!

NuVioN 03-11-2012 03:59 PM

I have been using him and liking him quite a bit over Liara. His Dark channel has a fast recharge time and works great. He also starts with a assault rifle over Liaras pistol. I do enjoy his comments in conversations, he has a dark/negative comment for everything.

troopereddie 03-11-2012 04:26 PM

yes
 
he is cool and talks alot about how his ppl effect the way we r now

mickjsg 03-11-2012 05:45 PM

I really like him. His comments so far have really cracked me up.
Plus that particle weapon of his is class.

xTGMx INF3RNO 03-11-2012 05:59 PM

Hes the best member by far. And his dialogue is amazing. Ive not stopped using him

IVIR BLOBBY 03-11-2012 08:43 PM

i used him quite a bit, but only because the overall squad given to you was weak

Only liked Garrus & Liara, Ashley pisses me off, james felt like some forced military sterotype, EDI was more for shock which was interesting but i didn't like her as a squad member & tali died after i sided with the geth

Squad was pretty rubbish this time round tbh, only salvaged by my true love of Garrus lmao, been my main squad member through all playthroughs

Javik was good compared to the rest. would have happily traded him for a Krogan though

pissed there was no Krogan squad member

Fucking love the Krogan

final1980 03-11-2012 10:42 PM

I am with Blaze while Javik isn't the best fighter his particle beam weapon and dark channel are amazingly devistating weapons to use. The unlimited ammo is something I will think about when it comes to my insane playthrough, but for anything less I stuck mainly with Garrus and Liara.

Ehrenfried 03-11-2012 10:48 PM

Yes, liked the DLC even if it was short, and he was so damn icecold funny.

rekikire 03-11-2012 11:53 PM

As a soldier I've done most of the game with either Liara and Javik. Occasionally pulling out Liara and EDI if I knew I was up against geth.

Auburok 03-12-2012 01:53 AM

Jahvik ended up adding like 3/4ths of the new, previously unexplained lore to this game. Glad I used him. It would have been boring had I not downloaded him at all. He seemed to be intricately woven in to the game's design.

Mr Gollywoggins 03-12-2012 04:00 AM

I used him in maybe 2 missions, I think I was a little too attached to Garrus, Tali, and Liara because I've used them for so long.

I will probably use him in future playthroughs once I set up a decent profile for it. Turns out the profiles I had available for import didn't do any DLC in ME2 and had some interesting choices that ruined a lot of dialogue for me.

MASS DOMINATION 03-12-2012 04:26 AM

I brought him on a few mission but I was too loyal to liara and garrus to not pick them. Plus actually really liked EDI and found her pretty useful in battle.

Hunterking 03-12-2012 02:35 PM

Unlike most here I did not use him at all. I've played my 1st playthrough with Liara/Vega/EDI

I found my adept to be invincible teamed up with Liara. Used Vega as a tank soaking up bullets for us. EDI came in handy with her distraction as well.

I found our Prothean to be an annoying pain with no respect for others unless set straight by Shepard. I should have sided with Joker and call him "Prothy the Prothean" and eject him out of the airlock.

littlejay 03-12-2012 02:35 PM

I used him until I got Ashley back. A lot of funny comments scattered around and is pretty handy to have around.

xTGMx INF3RNO 03-12-2012 02:37 PM

My squad was garrus and javik then ashley and javik when she came back. I recommend on a second run have him at all times just for his dialogue

upindat 03-12-2012 03:08 PM

Same here. kinda worthless. Dont thank this dlc was worth the ms points in my op.

Opiate42 03-12-2012 03:36 PM

I used Javik a few times, he's okay but yah in combat there are better options.

Nonono Hes the best by far. His weapon is amazing and his dark channel is very good. On top of that he has pull and slam!

My Vanguard Shepard also has pull and slam. :p

I dig Dark Channel, true, reminds me of Reave in ME2 which was by and far my favourite power.

That particle rifle was impressive. He's definitely useful in a fight but for the way I play with Vanguard, having Liara's Warp and EDI's Overload/Incendiary combo always worked better for me, made short work of just about everything. :)

xTGMx INF3RNO 03-12-2012 04:10 PM

I use a solider but in me2 reave was my bonus. Kicked ass. I have slam this time

ExtremeRugburn 03-12-2012 05:00 PM

I use him about half the time, when I go against Reapers. His powers are effective and I have fun using them. I like his rifle too, he vaporizes mobs quite often with it.

AgEnT STARZz 03-12-2012 06:29 PM

I haven't dropped him since i could use him!

In my experience so far Dark Channel by itself (fully leveled) is as powerful as a singularity/warp combo AND adds elements of overload.

This fact alone makes Jarvik pretty much a party MUST.

mikeymud 03-12-2012 06:33 PM

I tried him once in the school rescue mission, and he promptly ran out into the open field and got demolished. Haven't used him since.

SpinelesS 03-13-2012 05:26 AM

I haven't used Javik much, but I have heard that having him along on the Asari Missions is a big deal...

I'm just about up to that part and am tempted to deviate from my EDI, Liara or Tali team set.

LosT3PropheT 03-13-2012 05:24 PM

I seem to be in the minority here, but I love Javik. I'm about to finish my first playthrough on insanity and I have used him the entire game.

He has a good amount of hit points and seems to die a lot less than other squad mates.
He uses an assault rifle (assault rifle/biotics is rare in this game for AI squadmates), so he deals a fair mount of damage on his own without direction.
He has pull which is the equivalent to a lobbed pitch for anything not shielded/armored.
Dark Channel does a great job of softening and damaging big high threat units.

A combination of those 4 make him probably my favorite person to bring along with me.

Edit: Lift grenades are also great. They deal a good amount of damage and pull just because they can. I use them all the time.

It's well worth it to have him along with Liara, just saying.
