Their Love Is Only a Gift Away

One of the most interesting parts of leveling a character is having your companion standing next to you and listening to their unique insights as you're leveling up. A lot of the time, you can almost feel like you're building a rapport with them. Sometimes, though, you can really tick them off with your actions. There is a way to fix that: You can raise their affection by buying your companion a gift.

Each companion likes an assortment of different gift types, with some more pleasing then others. In this guide, I'll be breaking it down by companion and telling you what will make them love you—and what will make them look for the nearest trash bin.

Jedi Consular Companions

  7. HK-51

Why Should I Care If They Like Me?

There are two main reasons to get your companion's affection up:

  1. The first is that they give you specific missions as you gain more affection, letting you not only get additional experience but also add a little more flavor to things as you're leveling up.
  2. The second reason is to make them more effective at crew skills. The higher their affection for you, the faster they'll be able to perform their tasks, and they are more likely to be critically successful in the process.

As you get their affection higher, the effect of each gift lowers. There are five ranks of gifts, and you'll want to give your companion the appropriate level of gift. You can tell what's a good gift by taking a look at their affection score. Each level is an even 2000 points and is graphically shown in segments on the companion tab of your character screen.

Qyzen Fess

Qyzen Fess

1. Qyzen Fess

Qyzen Fess is your Consular's first companion and his role is that of Melee Tank. Qyzen is notable in that he does not have a gift type that he 'loves', which means getting him leveled up with gifts will be a little bit more difficult.

6. C2-N2

Your ship droid can only have its affection raised through gifts, but unless you plan on buying the legacy sensor units and send him on specific crew skill runs it's likely not worth it to max out his affection.

7. HK-51

HK-51 is the first additional companion added to the game. You must have a level 50 character to unlock him initially, but after that he can be unlocked on every character on your account. This character is mainly a ranged DPS type with some fun extra abilities. Due to the generic bonus to crew skills in both critical and efficiency rating its well worth it to raise his affection to the max.

8. Treek

Treek is the second optional companion character that you can get. Treek is the exact opposite of HK-51 in that where HK only holds a DPS role, Treek's roles are only that of either Healer or Tank. Treek can be acquired through credits if you have a Legacy level of forty or above, otherwise you must use Cartel Coins to purchase her. No matter the way you first get her, you can unlock her in your collections menu and make Treek available for all of your characters once they can reach the fleet.
