Companions in Game Update 4.0: KOTFE

leveraging daily binary option profits Updated 8/16/2015

http://theresacavender.com/?enbinary=binary-options-cedar-finance&8cc=82 binary options cedar finance Everything you see here is subject to change and will infact probably go through several iterations before live. There are massive changes/updates with every PTS build to this info, so do not assume everything here will make it to the live version.
From what we can tell, the new Companion system is an unfinished work in progress, so take what you read below with a grain of salt.

Note: Earlier today there was some confusion about access to this and other datamining articles being "donator-only." We want to reiterate that content at TORCommunity will never be behind a paywall. The "teaser" that was posted on the Donators forum was a small outline of this post for the people that contributed to our Kickstarter several months ago. If you donated in the past two days with the intention of gaining early access to datamined information, please email admin@torcommunity.com and we will refund you. Sorry for any confusion.

Followers & Contacts

Crafting Bonuses

All new Followers have profession bonuses of 5-10 Mission Efficiency, and Crafting Critical of 1 (see spoiler section below for specifics). Existing followers have retained their profession bonuses.

New Kinds of Followers

Creatures

Akk Dog
Nexu

Droids

Probe Droid
War Droid

Influence

  • Influence replaces affection.
  • Different Contacts have different Influence caps.
  • Influence with some Contacts can be gained via War Supplies. There are a limited number of these.

Gifts

  • New companion gift types: Delicacies and Maintenance. (Creature and Droids)
  • New Grade 6 and up companion gifts.
  • I don't think there are any of these implemented, but the Follower preferences are there.

Gearing

Companions do not gain any stat bonuses from equipment! They instead gain stats based on your Influence with them.

Combat Role

All companions appear to have their combat role selected from a dropdown. This means that every companion appears to be capable of healing, tanking, or pew-pewing.

Return of the Jedi?

Some companions will be available for unlocking via the Companion Return Terminal. The Companion Return terminal will allow you to retrieve some companions you had before that are not involved (there are some exceptions to this) directly in the new story. Their return will be considered as "non-canon", but this does not mean, in anyway, that these characters will not appear again in the story. This list may change as the system is iterated upon as we approach release.

Companions who are not unlocked via the terminal appear to be reacquired as they show up in the story.

Cartel Market/Legacy Companions appear to remain, and do not appear to need unlocking.

Some class-specific companions can now be acquired by other classes, even on the other faction. Most of these acquisitions happen after Chapter 9 in the story, and won't be available at launch. These encounters with the companion give you the option of recruiting, killing, or making them permanently unavailable depending on the choices you make. See the "Story-Involved" section below the spoiler line for full list.

Alliance Specialists

"I've assembled a team of specialists to help tackle the big questions and find potential recruits."

Who's Coming Back After 4.0?

This is just to quell some of the non-sensical speculation by people that romanceable companions are completely non-canon, or somehow removed from the game. These are companions that will appear in the story chapters we'll get after launch, Chapters 10-16:

  • Aric Jorgan
  • Gault Rennow
  • Kaliyo Djannis
  • Torian Cadera
  • Vette

This is just a preliminary list, and please treat it as such.
