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 your leveling up. A lot of the time you can almost feel like your building a rapport with them. Sometimes though you can also really tick them off with your actions. There is a way to fix that though. 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.

A Two Month SWTOR Subscription is Normally $30. At Amazon...

Why Should I Care if They Like Me?

There are two main reasons to get your companions affection up. The first is that they give you specific missions as you gain more affection, letting you not only get additional experience but add a little more flavor to things as your leveling up. 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 preform their tasks, and 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.

Vette

Malavi Quinn

Quinn is your Ranged Healer companion and likely the best pet to level with for most play styles. You get Quinn while your on Balmorra sometime around the level 20 mark. Quinn is the single romance option for the female Sith Warrior. Unlike most romance options, he does not have additional gifting options once in a relationship.

Jaesa Willsaam

Jaesa Willssam is your Melee DPS companion which you get after you finish the planet Alderaan at around level 32. During this mission Jaesa can be set on a Light or Dark path, but once you choose its final. Jaesa is a romance option for the male Sith Warrior but only if she is set on the Dark path. Unlike most romance options, her gift preferences are not dictated by whether you're in a romance with her but whether she is Light or Dark.

Lieutenant Pierce

Pierce is your Ranged Tank companion which you receive on Taris at around level 36. Companion tanks at around this level start to become less useful but your mileage may vary.

2V-R8

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.

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.

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.
