Companion Affection

Affection: What it is and why you should care

In Star Wars: The Old Republic your companions can help you in a lot of ways. On this site we'll be focusing on crew skills and how you can make the most of them. With the exception of your ship droid (C2-N2 if you're Republic, 2V-R8 for Imperial players), all companions have an Affection rating. In addition to the storyline benefits, high Affection levels mean your companion will perform their crew skills with higher efficiency. At the highest level (10,000 Affection) your companion will perform their duties almost 20% faster! At higher levels missions and crafting can take over an hour, so it adds up.

Affection for a single companion

You can see the current Affection level each companion has by looking at their character pane (Hotkey 'C', then select their tab). This will only show you the Affection of your current companion. Click the image to see it full-size.

Affection for a single companion

To see the Affection level of all of your companions at once, you can bring up the Crew Skill window (Hotkey 'N') and all of your companions will be listed vertically with their Affection level shown below their portrait. Just hover over the little green hearts to get the exact value.

Raising Affection

There are 2 ways to boost your a companion's Affection. The cheapest is to choose dialogue options that are compatible with your companion's world views. Reading your companion's Codex entry will give you insight into what they like and dislike. There are a number of problems with this approach:

Note: If you choose a dialog option your companion doesn't like you can hit the Escape key at any point before the conversation ends to redo the conversation and make different choices. Affection and Alignment changes are only applied after the conversation finishes.

A faster method to boost Affection is to give your companion gifts.

The Basics of Gift Giving

Low level gifts can be purchased from Vendors on many planets and on your respective faction's fleet. Rank 1 gifts cost 200 credits and Rank 2 cost 600. Ranks 3, 4, and 5 are only available from Mission skills (Underworld Trading, Diplomacy, Investigation, Treasure Hunting). The Galactic Trade Network is a great source of gifts, though you should expect to pay a lot for the higher level ones.

A gift that is too low in rank will give a greatly reduced amount of Affection while a higher level gift will only give a small additional benefit and so it's a waste of money. Based on a companion's current Affection you can easily determine what Rank of gift is appropriate:

Current Affection0 - 19992000 - 39994000 - 59996000 - 79998000+
Gift RankRank 1Rank 2Rank 3Rank 4Rank 5

For a gift of the matching Rank, you get the following amount of Affection:

Different companions like different types of gifts and there are 10 different types of gifts so understanding your companion is important to efficiently raising their Affection level. One way to get an idea of what your companion likes is to read their Codex entry. A faster and less error-prone way is to look at the table below. You can filter out classes you aren't interested in with the checkboxes.

Finding Gifts on the GTN

On the Galactic Trade Network, gifts are found under the Miscellaneous category. As a rule I never buy gifts unless I know my companion will love it (3 stars on the table above). Unfortunately there are no other filters to help you find the specific type of gift that you're looking for. You can search by name, but that requires knowing the name of the gift that you want. Alternately, you could page through the 50 or so pages of gifts people have posted, hovering over each one to see if it's what want. That would be pretty boring, so let's have another helpful table!
