SWTOR Companion Skill Bonuses and Gift Preferences List by ForceWelder

Disclaimer: This information is the work of a number of testers over the course of several testing cycles and changes may have occurred since this information was compiled.

If you see changes you would like to make to the post, constructive criticism is always welcome!

There are 5 main combat roles most companions fall into. They are:

Healer
Melee DPS
Melee Tank
Range DPS
Range Tank

Note 1: All companions are listed in the order in which they are acquired.

Note 2: All classes receive a droid companion when they receive their starship. This droid is the same for each class in a specific faction. For the Empire Classes the droid is 2V- R8. For the Republic Classes the droid is C2 – N2. Both faction ship droids have limited healing and combat options and can be used as a combat companion. You can also use the ship’s droid to complete crew skill missions.

    No weapons reque's in this skill-bonuses-gift.

  3. Anonymous says:

    Zenith's crew skill bonuses aren't correct. He has +15 Treasure Hunting Efficiency, not Investigation.

    Great source of information though. Thanks :)

  4. There is a problem with you Tallos Drelik section.

    In BETA he was not romanceable but I see recently it was put he was. Asking in the main forums, Level 50 SIs say they CANNOT romance him.

    Mistake? Or if he is how do you do so?

    Ashara "likes" military gear. She doesn't "love" it.

  7. Anonymous says:

  8. thank you all for the information, they have been updated accordingly =)

  10. Anonymous says:

    Ashara does not like luxury at all i give her luxury its always a 0

  11. Anonymous says:

    And Kaliyo is ranged tank, while SCORPIO is melee…

  12. Anonymous says:

    Malavai Quinn gets +0 Affection from Underworld goods, instead he likes Courting and Technology… I'm not sure if he would like courting from a Male though..

  13. Anonymous says:

    Mako is only getting +24 for 'Underworld Goods' so she doesn't "Love" those gifts. Tech certainly does net +94 so she *does* "Love" Tech Gifts.
