Yup. I ended up with taking Javik and Liara on all my missions.

He's a good addition!
I'm glad to see this didn't turn into a bashing thread and there are other people using him. He has good dialogue but he can also be helpful with certain interactions. Shepard doesn't have to do everything, he actually helps unlike some squad mates (looking at you James).

No. I solely used Garrus/Liarra/Tali because i was playing on insanity and Jahvik's powers didnt seem to be worth trading one of them out for. I'll probably make a casual runthrough with my renegade ME/ME2 decisions and use him to see what his reaction to the world is

I used Javik for most of the missions hoping there would be some awesome and Unique Dialogue.

And there was on a few(especially Thessia), but when there was almost no Dialogue for most of the Final Two Missions I restarted them with Liara and Garrus(LI and Good Friend), it just felt better going into the Final Battles of the Universe with them.

lol i kind of felt sorry for liara, she was SOO happy to get a protheon on our ship. kind of let down, since he refers to the asari as "inferior" and brushes off her attempts to conversate. i noticed he does have a lot of interesting things to say about the asari and other races from his time. he mentioned salarians as "lizard people" and said they used to eat flies! ahahahah i couldnt stop laughing.

i find him very interesting, combat aside i think hes worth it just because of the amazing dialogue and perception you get from a protheon. ive only just picked him up last night, but im already liking him a lot. that dark energy saved my ass from two banshees at once on the ardac-yachi mission (spelling?).

that particle beam rifle is craazy, im actually tempted to convert over from my long-beloved avenger ive been using since ME1. im wondering if you slap incindary amo on that bitch, does it become like a long-distance accurate flamethrower? lmao

He is very interesting to use, I used him in pretty much all my missions on my first play through. He is unique and it's very interesting to find out about the previous cycle

He's fun to talk to on the ship, but I never chose him as a squadmate. I want to bring him along to Thessia on my next playthrough though.

Not a bad squadmate but I brought Liara for her Stasis and Ash/EDI depending on who I was about to fight. Ash against Reapers/Cerberus, EDI against Geth. Sad to not have Garrus by my side but his abilities were useless.

Yep, I'm using him in Priority: Thessia on Insanity and the extra dialogue and cutscenes are pretty neat.

In my first play through I didn't really use him due to the fact that it was my first play through. For narrative purposes I brought Liara along for almost everything just to see what my "bond-mate" would say and I needed to learn the story. The second spot consisted of someone other than Jahvik. But now that I played through it once, I will definitely bring him everywhere with me.

I used him often just because I was curious what the last prothean in 50,000 years would say about the current ongoings of the galaxy. he has some interesting dialogue, but I highly doubt I'd use him for insanity playthrough...

By the way, to the OP, it's spelled "Javik", just thought I'd mention it

also, for James, i think Freddie Prince Jr makes a dumbass sounding hispanic, plus his character is useless. shit they shoulve got Carlos Mencia lol, maybe not for the body model though

I've rarely used the Jahvikan Mon! Most of his days are spent in the fake prothean environment aboard Normandy.... like a pet.

I used him only once and found the mission to be more difficult than it should have been. His Particle beam is beast though. All of my Assault rifle wielding squadmates are using that. I haven't used it too much because I really like sniping.

Since I played as an Adept, I had no use for him. I pretty much always used EDI and either Ashley or Tali depending on what enemy I would be facing. EDI was perfect for me because of Overload, Incinerate and Decoy, and Tali was good because of Energy Drain Combat Drone.

Yeah, he's a good pair with Liara if Shepard isn't a biotic. His only weakness is that for such a big macho soldier he seems to die a lot.

Definitely a good pair with Liara, using his Slam or Dark Channel in combo with Liara's Warp was spectacularly messy!

I didn't find he died a lot though, no more than Liara, unless I ordered him into a position that was... untenable. My bad...

I used Liara and Javik through a majority of my Vanguard Insanity run once I saw how devastating the Slam/Warp combo was on those pesky Marauders.

And two or three Prothean Beam rifles on Brutes and Banshees.... just yummy!!

Me, like some others, paired up Javik with Liara because their biotic combination blasts are devastatingly powerful, even on Insanity. My Shep is an Infiltrator and I took Energy Drain as a bonus power, negating the need for a squadmate with shield-destroying abilities.

Plus I really enjoy Javik's dialogue. He adds a somber, brutally honest perspective on things into the mix.

I am using Liara and Javik for my Insanity run, just Slamming the shit out of everything that moves. Liara uses Singularity, Javik slams, I warp. The end.

As someone said before he does seem die a lot. His powers are very good though and I had a lot of fun using pull on an enemy and then slam and watching them rebound off the ground into the air.

Didn't care for him but brought him on the final mission so he could get his revenge on the Reapers. Even though it doesn't add anything to the story just felt like he needed his revenge.

Me too. Also pull for guardians, Dark Channel is solid and strong but Singularity + Slam is pure crowd control.

I didn't do the mission until quite close to the end, and he annoyed me a lot, so I never used him. Besides, as a ME enthusiast and veteran of all games, I couldn't resist playing with Garrus and Liara. For old times sake!

Like many people here I found Javik incredibly useful, especially when paired with Liara. I'll be honest and say I'm not finding Insanity particularly challenging so far, so there may well be better character combinations I'm not testing out because there's no necessity to do so, but between his Particle Rifle and the fact that he's the only character with any decent biotics other than Liara, I find him making the team fairly frequently.

I'm not sure how often I would've picked him had he been in ME2, but the ME3 squadmate roster is frankly pathetic, and he's pretty close to the top of the available options.

I would also like to add something in response to the people that mentioned how pleased they were that his dialogue and cutscenes were so plentiful and well integrated into the game. Never forget that he was ALWAYS part of the game. He was removed and sold separately having been developed as part of the main game, so yes, he IS as involved and integrated as any of the other squadmates, but instead of applauding this, you should instead decry the cynical, money-grubbing decision to withhold him from those not willing to throw an extra $10 at the game.
