Update with 4.0.3: Artwork gifts are now called Delicacies and Consumable gifts are now called Maintenance.

Update with Patch 4.0.2: This patch changed the way some companiions react to gifts. They now all have at least one gift type they love (max affection).

How Influence Works

With Fallen Empire, affection has being changed to influence. Instead of a max of 10,000 affection with your companions, you now have a max influence rank of 50 which requires a total of 250k influence. Your previous affection capped companions are now influence rank 10 and you have to bring them up to the new maximum influence rank again.

Your companions will lose their previous crafting bonuses and gear but they now gain new bonuses based on their influence rank.

Each influence rank give the following bonuses.

  • +50 Presence
  • +1.5% time efficiency for crew skill tasks
  • +0.5% critical rate for crew skill tasks

Which means a influence rank 50 companion will have 2500 presence, 75% time efficiency for crew skill tasks and 25% critical rate for crew skill tasks.

Companion Gifts

Companion gifts still work on raising the influence of your companions. Previously companion gifts only goes up to rank 5 and artifact rank but now rank 6 gifts and Legendary rank gifts are available. In addition, two new kinds of companions gifts are available: Delicacies and Maintenance. Delicacies are mostly used by the new companions you acquire in expansion while Maintenance gifts are mostly favored by droids.

Remember that there is a Character Perk called Legacy of Altruism that will give you 30% more affection from companion gifts and is very cheap to unlock (90K credits in total to unlock all 3 tiers).

Rank 1-2 Premium Gifts available from the fleet vendor on Galactic Trade Market section of the fleet.They cost 200-600 credits each and are good to feed to your companions for the first couple influence ranks.

Rank 5 Prototype and Artifact Gifts are available also from the fleet vendor in Galactic Trade Market section of the fleet. They cost 5000 credits for prototype and 10000 for Artifact.

How much influence would I gain by giving my companion this gift?

Gift rarity: Green = Premium, Blue = Prototype, Pink = Artifact, Purple = Legendary.

The influence ranks (IRanks) listed here are thresholds so a companion of the rank 14 for example would receive the same gift values as a rank 10 companion and a companion of the rank 45 would get same gift values as a rank 40 companion.

How to use the charts

  1. Find out what your companion LIKE, FAVOURITE AND LOVE.
  2. Find out your companion influence rank in the Companion & Contacts Window. The value listed there are thresholds so for example Influence Rank 16 would use IRank 15 as it just crossed that threshold.
  3. Find out what is the rank and rarity of the companion gift you plan to give them.
  4. Look up the value in the chart by finding the correct chart and then look at the corresponding value row (companion gift rank/rarity) and column (companion influence rank).
  5. For example, I want to feed Lana Delicacies Gifts. She FAVOURITE them so it is the 9x multiplier chart. She is Influence Rank 9 and I am feeding her a Rank 2 Pink (Artifact Gift) so I would look up the column IRank 6 and row Rank 2 Pink to get a value of 288. The values are assuming you do not have the character perk that increase the values by 30%.

    Umm why would you give an Akk Dog military gear or artwork he’s just going to eat it. Depending on what that military gear is he could blow up.

      Not exactly, it does make the companion better, but it scales differently, its % based, not point based, so they won’t be as insanely powerful at low levels, but should be more powerful at high levels.

    So we can only recruit a limited amount of Companions? I was hoping we could recruit force users like Jaessa, Ashara, Xalek etc.

        Whoa really?!? If this is the case, I am even more excited now! I want to get an all force-user alliance if possible for my Assassin!

        Edit: I read on one of the comments that Xalek is also one on the list that Dulfy forgot to add in. So not sure if Ashara and Jaessa can be recruited or not by other classes.

          Wouldn’t surprise me if Ashara and Jaessa can’t be recruited by other classes. They are both the apprentice for their class.

            Wait, isn’t Xalek an apprentice too? Or am I remembering his story incorrectly…
            Hopefully in a future chapter we will get some of them.

    Might I suggest you explicitly remind people that, unlike in the English language, Favorite does not mean favorite; it is inferior to Love.

    I am unclear on what the columns mean. I assume the iRank 15 meant when >=15 and < 20. But then what is the iRank 50 column? 50 is the max and so nobody will ever use these.

      Correct Irank 15 is indeed 15 or above and below 20.There is no use for Irank 50 really

      I agree, my old comps have 10k affection, which is lvl 10 influence… I want to send them on crafting missions… I can’t because I can’t access them.

      thanks bioware.

        I’m not sure if they’re bugged (unless a dev has mentioned it). I can give a courting gift to Theran Cedrax on my low-level sage and he gets a ‘small’ influence gain from it. This suggests that they work, but only as a class of gift instead of being reserved for a romance companion. Theran Shan, for instance, might not be interested in courting gifts…he never struck me as a card-giving sort of boyfriend anyway.

    250 THOUSAND. Seriously? I expected a grind, I even prepared myself for 25k, but 250k per companion is INSANE. I have 30+ 60’s all with 7+ toons at 10k affection, I doubt I will ever get even one toons companions maxed. What a load of garbage. Not even going to touch this.

    Short number crunch to get from 0 to 50 using the 30% bonus and only loved gifts:

    Vendor greens (r1 to 40 then r2): 4.5 million credits, 10 hours(!) of non-stop gift clicking
    Green jawa junk: just over 15 stacks, 76 minutes clicking
    Blue jawa junk: just under 8 stacks, 38 minutes clicking
    Common Data Crystals: 4520 crystals, 8 minutes clicking

    You can mix these ofcourse, it’s only at r20 that the vendor stuff becomes prohibitively tedious

        This is disregarding any other sources of affection (like the story) so it might not be this bad, this is mostly for people who want their 25% crit bonus on crafting _today_

What I will do is probably do one companion to 50 so I can get them ready for star fortress and then just farm star fortress for influence via bonus objectives while getting decorations along the way

    It is clear that companion influence is a long term objective, and something I would personally never prioritize. Influence Rank 20-30 is not THAT crazy to achieve in a few days, and that still gives a significant crafting time and efficiency bonus.

      you’d buy 6088 level 1 green gifts and 5294 level 2 green gifts. The cost for all that would be 4,394,000 credits, and at a rate of 2.9 seconds per gift assuming you could never miss a fraction of a second jumping from one gift to another it would take about 9 hours and 17 minutes.

        On the other hand I will complain about Level Sync (nope, don’t care at all about the “benefits” of it) and about the whole Mastery stat…. I preferred it when each class had their own gear.

She is Influence Rank 9 and I am feeding her a Rank 2 Pink (Artifact Gift) so I would look up the column IRank 6 and row Rank 2 Pink to get a value of 512.

      It means you can use the one you like and that their isn’t just one HK droid that is the best to run with. Also, in a party of 4 there are 0 companions, so — they are made to fill the role of missing players, so with that in mind — it makes sense you can switch them to what ever role you’re group actually needs rather than be pigeon holed by the ones you’ve unlocked.

      The only real issue with them that I see, is that they are significantly too strong and are trivializing the game right now, the buff to their healing is insane. It’s hard to die right now even just face tanking as a damage sentinel solo heroic content. It’s not like you can complete the content it’ll take you so long to kill one enemy, that before you kill the second, the first one respawns, we’re talking like 15 minutes a mob, but still — you can’t die?

              If the ONLY character you have for your legacy is an insta-60, you lose out on the ability to get those % bonuses without creating level 1 chars to run the companion conversations

      Companion Inherent Tradeskill Bonuses Removed,

      We are changing the way that Presence works such that each point provides percentage based bonuses, instead of flat numerical bonuses. This more or less translates into two things:

      Sadly, the Companions of low level characters with massive Presence bonuses from their legacies will no longer be hilariously overpowered (I promise we’re just as sad to see this go as you are, it provided some good times).

      Presence will scale much better at higher levels.

      http://dulfy.net/2015/10/21/swtor-fallen-empire-companion-influences-guide/

      Each influence rank give the following bonuses.

    I personally don’t like it, i don’t see it as economically viable to buy the gifts to increase the influence, cause it takes 22 rank 5 purple gifts to get up to Ilevel 20 or so…..but those 22 gifts cost me over 1mil credits…i don’t see that as viable for all companions.

    The only other alternative is to pick only the conversation choices that the companions love the most….rendering our choices irrelevent, since we will be picking whatever the companion loves to max them out….25% crit chance on missions and a 75% mission speed up and a big chunk of presence….is so huge….you just got to do it…..choice has gone out the window, especially if our companions’ influence affects their loyalty.

      “The only other alternative is to pick only the conversation choices that
      the companions love the most….rendering our choices irrelevent, since
      we will be picking whatever the companion loves to max them out”

      This is no longer the case. Even if they don’t appreciate your decision it will still increase their influence. The only thing that matters now is the fact that they react.

      You can just use level 1 green gifts if you don’t mind a lot of clicking. I got Treek up to lvl 32 just buying 500K worth of Holoviewers and spending 2 hours giving them to her. With the Legacy of Altruism buff the’re worth 17 influence points each all the way up to lvl 40 (more at lower levels) and only cost 200 credits from the main comp. gift sales guy.

        HK-51 still has unique moves (51 specifically, 55 is not unique), although he’s missing the one that people wanted to see him keep. Treek still has her own unique moves, although they’re divided up so she can no longer tank and heal at the same time. All other companions are a mass of generic mediocrity though. Lokin still has transformation, but aside from that there are a handful of movesets based on what type of weapons they’re allowed to equip (with blaster rifles and sniper rifles being treated as equal / interchangeable for whatever reason) and everybody who uses the same weapon class uses the exact same moves as each other so they all feel really samey. There isn’t really anything to set them apart from each other. The old moves that they had, the fighting styles which were unique to them before, are completely tossed out the window now.

    Compared to the old crafting/mission skill bonus, for example Corso Riggs(500 arms tech,10k affection, 3% legacy perk, making an orange grade weapon), it was a total of 10+5+5+3=23% critical chance.
    Without inborn crafting bonus in this patch, it requires a influence level of 20 in order to achieve similar critical result which is not that hard to farm. If the influence level becomes 50, a total of 10+25+3=37% critical chance is expected.

    So basically if you have to farm 6 times more of a level 20 to get an extra 14% critical result. Worth it or not?

      You’re either blind or just assuming, seeing as there are several new companions. If you cry about the limited roles like it was in “old days” then that’s just silly. Everyone was using the same companion back then because they had no choice. Now people can use the companion they like and are not stopped dead in tracks because companion didn’t know how to tank/heal/dps. And several new companions – even cross-class ones are, sort of, if your current char never had that one before – will only enhance it.

      Not unique? Old system was totally pointless since everyone pretty much ended using the same companion, simply because they needed a specific role (usual healer) and only 1 companion provided it. So rest of the companions were totally useless. THAT was a not unique system. With the new system people can finally use the companion they want and like and not be forced to use a specific companion. That’s unique (sort of)! You won’t see EVERYONE run around with Treek or HK now, now you can see a variety of companions. Companion “uniqueness” doesn’t come from their abilities, it comes from the companion choices, likes and dislikes and from the relationship with your char (friendly or more).

    When you recruit Qyzen, you can turn in more trophies than actually necessary to gain more influence with him. This way, you can easily push him above lvl. 22, if you do all world bosses and save tons of companion gifts.

        Cheapest way but time consuming 200 credit rank 1 that you companion loves and if you have Altruism III.

        19 x stacks of 99 and 1 stack of 80.

        that’s 1,971 x 200 credit gifts for total of 394,200 Credits

        Will get you from Rank 1 to rank 30.

        Approximate amount of time 2 Hours 15 Minutes.

        Realistic way to do this if you have a game mouse, pad or keyboard.

        Program it to activate you hotbar keybind with your gift in it. Set it for 4 second or 4000 MilliSecond Continuous repeat cycle.

        Go to sleep do your homework watch a movie or what ever.

        You could do this from 30 to 40 but just from 30 to 40 not so feasible as each gist would only get you 17 influence a piece would cost you an extra 600k and a hell of a lot of time.

    I mean, i am fine with picking non-alignment choices to increase their influence, but picking alignment choices to increase it is a big NO…..it is a pity that the influence doesn’t increase regardless, but have 2 types, respect or rival or something, like Dragonage 2.

      It doesn’t matter if they like what you say. No points to influence are ever taken away, only gained – even from choices they don’t like. Influence isn’t affection, you need to stop looking at it that way. Your companions now remember your choices, and that will come into play later in conversations, but has no bearing at all on influence gain. You could have a companion absolutely loathe you now, but still have max influence with them. Bioware reworked influence to be a reflection of how much you have impacted a particular companion, good or bad. So there is no need to escape out of conversations to try to get the ‘right’ choice now – because there is no right or wrong choice for your companion, only right or wrong according to your particular character’s roleplay/personality.

        But, from what i have read, that if you don’t pick the choices that your companion likes, the influence will barely get you anything…..you might get 200, instead of 800…..unless you get the same regardless…

          This is in fact true. Picking choices where HK approves/strongly approves DOES get you more influence. I had the exact same conversations with two different characters but chose different dialogue choices – 200 vs 800. So, no change from what I’ve seen, only the values are hidden.

Like the Jedi Knight is really fucked because the two romancable comanions have only have favourite gifts for people who don’t romance them but all the companions of the Imp Agent e.g. have love gifts no matter if you romance them or not.

    they really could’ve changed that since they already where tweaking and changing all this shit.

      Yeah its unfortunate but if main reason is that you want them for crafting bonuses. You can only send out 5 at a given time. Every class has at least 5 Companions with Love level Influence.

          Not sure if that means they’re being revamped for story, or if they’re the unfortunate ones that are gone for good.

      The chart is at base level without the Altruism bonuses.

      So if you have Altruism III like i do you would have to add 30% to the base.

      Rank 1 Green (Love Chart)
      From Rank 1 to 50
      Base:
      128,122,77,51,26,13,0,0
      With Altruism III
      166,133,77,51,26,13,0,0

        The CC options should not affect the based numbers you need per level. It should only affect the amount of influence you gain towards that level. I have ALT3 on all my main toons and none on the rest. using my example on a ALT3 and ALT0 at lvl 15 you need 3100 influence to move to 16 on either toon despite the level of Altruism. thats what i was trying to say. So in the case of the Google Doc, the calculation are based of the base you need, if the base is wrong, the calculation for totals needed will be wrong before adding ALT1,2,3 bonus.

    Dulfy,

    I found that if people want to keep Darth Marr as a companion (*CAN’T PROGRESS IN KOTFE STORY IF YOU WANT MARR AS A COMPANION), it seems that he prefers the following as it pertains to gifts:

    Favorite: Trophy
    Love: Military Gear/Weapon

    Nothing else seems to catch his fancy.

    Please note that if you choose to keep Marr and shower him with gifts, you do so at your own risk (ie possible loss of invested money/time if something were to change and he can’t be retained). I personally have been able to keep him since KOTFE launch on several toons, but who knows what future patches might bring.

      I would hope that they do this after the conclusion of the storyline.
      Currently, they reserve the option to change main storyline companion looks only for themselves, which might be somewhat important (e.g., when they have to re-dress a companion, they would have to return the current clothing to you, or there might be difficulties in rendering something like a wound on a generic piece of clothing etc).

      Besides, my inquisitor wears gray robes himself, so I’m quite happy with Lana’s clothing tastes 😉

    pink gifts give more influence compared to purple, considering the cost of 30 crystals.
    while one purple gives 2048, 3 pink will give you 2454
    and if you consider the perks, its 2600 and 3100…
    pink gifts WINS

    so they should either reduce the price of purple gifts or increase their influence gain

      They need to look at the prices of gifts across the board. The fleet vendor sells Rank 1 and 2 green gifts, but the green Rank 2 gifts are 3x the price but don’t give 3x the points.

        Pre-4.0, Rank 2 would give double the points at triple the cost, too.
        One might argue that you pay an increased credit price to have the same influence gain with less clicks (a.k.a. convenience fee).

        Whether this is worth it, well, decide for yourself.

      abundance this is not applicable. you’re basically drowned in CDCs on every toon you play but you need to do the conquests to gain a very limited amount of scraps a week. so to say pink gifts win is only on paper without consideration of the reality of purchaising them.

      You’re paying extra for convenience. If you work out the GTN price of blue rank 5 gifts vs green rank 2, the cost per point is lower for rank 2 (assuming an average price of 10k per for the blue rank 5 gifts) all the way out to rank 40. But if you go that route, you’ll be standing there spamming that gift key for an hour or more.

      Don’t despair, 55 is following the long and distinctive tradition of HKs getting destroyed, re-constructed and destroyed again. If you want to gift shop for your favorite killer droid, consumables are generally something no droid can turn down. Military, weapons and technology are also fine signs of appreciation for a killbot. Hopefully 55 will be reconstructed in the next chapter, and i know that many of us will have a stockpile of gifts to boost him to influence 50 on the spot. I will!

        Or perhaps we’ll see another HK droid, hopefully with HK-55’s personality —- and he could be called HK-57 [and get to have some customizations]. That, or they should allow us to use customizations that they first made for HK-51, become usable by HK-55 [and the next one, if they add HK-57].

    16 total to get to 40268 [Rank 20]

    Does anyone know if its worth increasing the influence of the new companions even if something might happen to them in the future chapters? For instance, I’m not ready to give gifts to Senya if somethings happens to her later on considering she is a somewhat important character to the story. Will we even have access to her or any of the new main companions after KOTFE? Its a safer bet to just level the influence of the previous companions.

      Why would you want to tremendously increase the influence level anyway?
      It is extremely cheap to get any given companion to level 10 (the old maximum) by buying 99 green level 1 gifts (= 19800 Credits). Such a companion will be sufficient for everything except soloing Star Fortresses.

      In any case, if you really want to max out one companion, your safest bet would be HK51, Treek, or Niko Ocarr. They cannot deeply integrate these into any storyline, because it cannot be assumed that a player has them (plus, killing them would really outrage those who have unlocked them).

      If you feel like you want to max out another, potentially killable companion, you will just have to take the risk. I mean, e.g., if you love Lana, you shouldn’t wait to shower her with gifts. This way you will have the benefits of high influence (whatever these are) at least until she should die, instead of not at all.
      If you do not want to take any risks, you will have to wait until you have complete, certain information – this is basically a truth for any kind of investment.

    Does anyone else think that the Selonian should have been recruited from Corellia [even though the story says that she left Corellia]? And that they should have someone else be from Tatooine?

    Or, if Corellia were to get added to the list of Star Fortresses — maybe we could recruit a Drall?

    Maybe add Manaan as another Star Fortress location — and we could recruit a Selkath?

    Hey Dulfy,

    Might want to add this in case nobody else has. I romanced Lana Beniko on my Agent, got the confirmation that I would be starting it, etc. Well, I thought that after I started a romance – I could use Courting gifts since if you romance Theron, he can take Courting gifts and previous companions can as well. Well, Lana doesn’t take them so it might good to put on this list that while you can romance certain new companions – they might not take courting gifts. An asterisk/footnote would work.

I mean, if I get a gift from an alliance crate, it would be super useful to easily see to which alt I should give it to maximize the influence gain (rather than having to search through the list of all alts)?

      Courting gifts only work at certain romance intervals for default story love interest. Before you give them one, hover over the gift FIRST to see if they gain any influence from it. If they don’t, they not at the level to “appreciate” the gift yet.

    I am having a hard time finding out about this, can someone romance Lana in KotFE even if Lana dislikes most of the things they say as long as they have high influence with her? I think that is so but I’m having a hard time finding anything that talks about KotFE specific romances. My husband was romancing her in SoR and we are just starting KotFE but I started getting nervous after reading somewhere that conversation choices have an impact in KotFE. I just don’t want him to miss out on romancing Lana since he chose not to romance Kira with this character.

      As long as you pick most/all of [Flirt] dialog choice when they are available you can romance Lana or Koth. Influence and other dialog choice without [flirt] Have no effect on romance.
      Which also means, you don’t have to worry about saying things she dislike as long as there are no [Flirt] choice to pick.

      One *IMPORTANT*thing, the[Flirt] option in chapter 9 can be misleading as the camera focus on Theron but the choice refer to your love interest. Many people misunderstood this and didn’t pick [flirt] .

    Just out of curiosity, now that TORhead is gone, does anyone have the old character conversation branches anywhere on a site? Just came back after about a year away, and there’s a lot changed. A quick Google search didn’t really identify anything that looked promising.

    Do they even matter at this point (barring any romance options) with the new system, or should I just finish off the ones I have and not worry too much about them?

    Haven’t started Kotfe or SoR, so no room for the romance to change. Vette, according the the chart, when romanced gets the same Love affection from courting gifts as underworld gifts. This is not true, she only gets 133 affection from purple grade 5 courting with legacy buffs, and 532 affection with underworld.

    I’m having problems with the Courting gifts with romanced companions as well. The courting gifts are not working at all with Theron Shan (on knight toon), and they are only providing small increases of influence instead of large with Corso Riggs (on smuggler toon). My smuggler has completed the entire romance story with Corso. Something is clearly bugged.

          That would be my bet because there were QUITE a few complaints about it over on the SWTOR forums back when I first started playing back in the day. In fact, that’s how I found out about the weird reversal on names.

          I do remember a few of the old charts having it the “logical” way instead of the official one back in those days which meant I had to grab a couple of “test presents” before starting to buy my companion up in order to check whatever chart I had to be SURE that they had it correctly. So, my bet is that some folks are still working under that order instead of the official one even now.

          Oh well, at least Rank 1 Greens are still only 200 from the vendors so, it’s still easy enough to check before you go to buy whatever it is in bulk. 😀

    Maybe I’m reading things wrong but it appears that on the chart for Rank 1 gifts (LOVE) the max is 128, but I’m seeing for a couple characters that get 166 for Rank 1 Green Gifts. Example T7-01 gets 166 pts per Holoviewer which is the 200 credit Rank 1 green gift from the vendor. Doc gets 166 for Rank 1 Green Luxury gifts. For both of them it drops to 133 pts after Influence Level 6

    I just got the CS Companion Probe Droid. I have the full character perk and I’m buying the Rank 6 artifact Maintenance Gifts “Armor Maintenance” straight out of the GTN. I didn’t start paying attention to how much influence was being reward until I got the droid to rank seven.
    So, at rank 7 the ‘Rank 6 Maintenance Gifts (artifact)’ are rewarding 1065 influence and continued to reward this amount through rank 11.
    Is this working correctly?
    Thank you!

    I’ve discovered that the influence CAN in fact have an impact on the story.
    Example: as you know, at the end of chapter 8 you get rescued/joined by either Koth or Lana. I found no evident logic behind how the game chooses between the two, but I know that if you keep getting Koth, raising influence with Lana (and restarting the chapter, cause you can’t jump back in at the ‘talk to Arcann’ step) will always lead to Lana catching up with you instead of Koth. And will also lead to the Outlander and Lana kissing at the beginning of the chapter, is that wasn’t happening upon the [Flirt] option after Heskal’s call.

      The reason is that Bioware changed the gift preferences for the bounty hunter version of Torian and the alliance version of Torian. They do this every once in a while which is pretty annoying. I added the Torian alliance version under recruited Main characters and you can find the correct values for the alliance version of him. For the chart I am going to keep the bounty hunter version and make a note of it at the top like with Kaliyo.

        You need to remove the courting gifts from Torian, he won’t take them at all, even if you’re romancing him or married to him as a Bounty Hunter in pre kotfe content. Kinda irks me cause I always used the moment they accepted a courting gift to know when the romance got switched ‘on’, but he won’t take them at all anymore.

      For Khem you can rely on Ak’ghal Usar. It is a Dashade the same as Khem. I just don’t know if he will take the appearence customization of Khem. But since the name of the customizations changed in the vendors maybe he will do. Now they are listed as Dashade Customization 1,2,3… instead of Khem Val Customization like it used to be.

    Malavai Quinn from Sith Warrior likes Courting gifts pre-Kotfe when you romance him (i have a 65 marauder i now i am leveling a juggernaut – both romanced him – and, yes, he likes Courting). Don’t know if he stills liking them after cause he didn’t came back from limbo yet in my marauder. XD. No other companion demonstrated taste for Courting that I recall at the moment. Also Torian is missing from the list that sorts companions by gifts.

        Never use Rank 6 gifts unless you find them in crates. Don’t buy them. Use the Rank 5 gifts on the Fleet, it’s slower but costs a LOT less. I’ve gotten 3-4 comps per toon to rank 50 since 5.0. It’s much, much easier to make credits than to farm crystals.

      With Rank 5 gifts on the fleet, it’s not that expensive : from 0 to 50, you need “only” 483 purple rank 5 gifts = 4 830 000 credits.

      Don’t forget to open alliance crates (from the H2+) you will find also multiple Gold and purple gifts.

      Honnestly, since 5.0, I have 4 new influence 50 companions (Well, H2+ really bring a bunch of cash now: 23000+ credits for a single H2+ (and bonus mission also…), Gold mob loot near 800-900 credits, etc…)

      Last but not least, you can earn near 7000 points of infuence with the first companion of each class when doing Black Talon/Eseless with the right choices of dialog.

    The numbers in the calculation spreadsheet are not exact when a legacy bonus applies. This is because it doesn’t round the calculated number of points per gift to a whole number.

    For instance, with a 30% legacy bonus, you need 4118 green rank 1 gifts to get from level 30 to 40. But the spreadsheet says you need 4143.

    Let me explain:

    —————————————————————————-
    EXAMPLE 1 (spreadsheet too high):
    —————————————————————————-

    In the 30-40 range (70,000 points), green rank 1 gifts are worth 13 points. With the 30% legacy bonus, they are worth 16.9 points, which is rounded up to 17 when you give the gift to your companion.

    The number of gifts needed with the bonus is 70,000 / 17 = 4117.6 (or 4118 rounded up)

    The spreadsheet, however, divides by 16.9, not 17. So you get 70,000 / 16.9 = 4142.01 (or 4143 rounded up). This is the number given by the spreadsheet.

    As you can see, you need 4118 gifts but the spreadsheet specifies 4143, which is too many.

    —————————————————————————-
    EXAMPLE 2 (spreadsheet too low):
    —————————————————————————-

    In the 20-30 range (50,000 points), green rank 1 gifts are worth 26 points. With the 30% legacy bonus, they are worth 33.8 points which (for technical reasons I won’t get into right now) is rounded down to 33 when you give the gift to your companion.

    The number of gifts needed is 50,000 / 33 = 1515.15 (or 1516 rounded up).

    The spreadsheet, however, divides by 33.8, not 33. So you get 50,000 / 33.8 = 1479.29 (or 1480 rounded up). This is the number given by the spreadsheet.

    As you can see, you need 1516 gifts but the spreadsheet specifies 1480.

    —————————————————————————-
    Technical explanation as to why 33.8 becomes 33
    Feel free to skip this section
    —————————————————————————-

    The base value for a green rank 1 companion gift at influence level 1 is 128.

    At level 6, the value becomes 128 * 0.8 = 102.4, which is rounded to 102.

    At level 10, the value is 128 * 0.6 = 76.8; at level 15 the value is 128 * 0.4 = 51.2; at level 20 the value is 128 * 0.2 = 25.6; and at level 30 the value is 128 * 0.1 = 12.8. All of these are rounded before being applied to your companion.

    The legacy boost, however, is applied to the non-rounded value. So if I have a 30% legacy boost, the gift value for the 20-30 range becomes 128 * 0.2 * 1.3 = 33.28, which is rounded to 33.

    The spreadsheet is using integer values for the various ranks, thus it gets 33.8 instead of 33.28. And that is why 33.8 becomes 33.

    Finally, the spreadsheet can be modified to take all this into account. It just adds some complexity.

        There’s no point trying to complete the influence meter on all of them, especially since you only use about 6 max for crew skills at any one time, I just study which companions like which gift the most, and based on who has the advantage based on story history farm each individual type of gift to the respective companion until they hit 50. After that it’s either superfluous gifting or selling.

        They, the companions being romanced, used to love courting before 4.0 came out even though it wasn’t shown on the charts.

    Personally I think they should make it so you can romance any companion you want to.

    I thought the scale would be Like Love Favorite. It’s a bit confusing to have it be Like Favorite Love.

    Dulfy, the new Gamorrean Bodyguard companion absolutely loves Underworld Goods. Over 2600 influence gained on Legendary Underworld Good. Not sure about the what he moderately likes or somewhat likes, though.

    Romance comps dont get Love but Favourite from their gifts. Jaesa dark & married gets less from luxury than weapon, married Vette on my other SI and she only gets Like amounts of influence from courting gifts

    Okay, I’m really confused about the spreadsheet. Nowhere does it say if the values are using “like” “love” or “favorite” as the value to determine the value given in the final gift number and total price columns. Are these just a baseline 1X value that you then need to adjust for how much that companion likes the gift, for example 4X for “like”? I would appreciate some clarification as this is driving me nuts!

    My level 50 companions are all attaining a 50% reduction in time efficiency for crew skill tasks. How do I boost that to the available 75% reduction? I think it might have something to do with valor.

        The game provides the crew skill bonuses when you open the crew skills window then click a particular skill in preparation to start the mission.

          You can also open Companions and Contacts, highlight one crew member, then hover on the colored rank process bar to see the bonuses achieved. Bonuses increase with rank increase.

          It still doesn’t explain why do you think that 75% is highest. Also Valor is PvP thing, it is not related to companions in any way.

            Valor was just a guess. When you select an item to craft or a mission to undertake, it shows the companion list. Below the companion’s name and picture there is a box that lists that companion’s time efficiency and critical rate. As companion influence increases so does the time efficiency and crit rate. At level 50 influence, the time efficiency is 75%-78% and the crit rate also says +75%.

    What are the goals with leveling companions? It seems more like a collection minigame than something of real value in-game. If I’ve maxed out my crafting skills, there’s no real benefit there. I can’t tell if there’s much utility to having a lvl 50 companion in PvE, but maybe that. While leveling crafting skills I can see the benefit of having 10 companions at level 50 because of the time and crit rate increase for mission runs. If actively working to craft things, then having 10 at 50 will again be of benefit. But it seems that unlocking companions has a fair degree of work involved, but what’s the point? It seems that after unlocking and maxing out 10 companions, there’s no point to doing companion missions or unlocking after that.

      You get those that you like, and level them up to the max if you want. It’s turned into collecting Pokemons a bit, for better or worse.

          Well, as far as the latest updates from people around her went, she was actually pursuing a work-related opportunity irl, so maybe things turned out for the better for her. Personally, I would have preferred if she left a short message before she completely quit. It’s not like she owes us anything, but still.

          Oh well. Some of the guides still hold up pretty well imo, especially for the PvE content.
