As we already know the most expensive way to gain the companions’ affection is by giving them gifts. In our Companion List guide you can find what gifts your companion prefers over others or if he / she is indifferent to some types of gifts. Your companion gift preferences can change from indifferent to like/love if you and your companion are in romance.
The gifts are categorized in several types: Military Gear Gifts, Weapon, Luxury, Imperial Memorabilia, Republic Memorabilia, Cultural Artifact, Trophy, Underworld Good, Technology, Courting and come in five Ranks. Gifts are also classified by quality: green, blue and purple. Green gifts are the most common and can be bought at vendors, while blue and purple ones can be obtained through Mission Skill quests or purchased from the Galactic Trade Network. Affection range is between 0 and 10.000 with new levels at every 2,000 points.
Companion affection can effect game play in several ways:
- you will reduce the time for crafting by increasing affection with your companion
- the success rate on missions is increased with higher affection
In the table below you can find how much affection you will gain for some gifts at certain affection level. We would like to say a big THANK YOU to Plate Beard for making this table and removing any mystery to how companion gifts work, and allowing us to post it on our site. We think this will be extremely helpful for all of the SWTOR community members and we hope you will enjoy it. You can also follow Plate Beard work with some other interesting data here.
