Affection[edit source]

Moved the Gift affection calculations off the Gifts page. The gift page doesn't need to show how much affection a gift can give but rather what gift is relevant to which companion.-- Yakamoko 02:34, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

wanted to edit "Efficient affection gain" but this shit site thinks it's harmful[edit source]

Here's the new text:

Efficient affection gain[edit source]

Rank 2 gifts cost triple the money but only gives double the affection of a rank 1. When leveling up a companion's affection it is most cost effective to use rank 1 gifts until they achieve rank 4. It takes about 62 rank 1 gifts to go from 0 to 4000 affection costing 15625 credits. Similarly, going from rank 3 to rank 4 uses 105 rank 1 gifts costing 26300 credits. On the other hand, 42 rank 2 gifts would cost 31250 credits.

The rule of thumb is a gift the lowest rank which still gives affection is the most cost effective.

Since affection received from conversations remains the same regardless of affection rank, but gifts lose their potency and become increasingly expensive, it is most cost effective to boost a companion's affection with gifts as early as possible and use conversation for the rest.

In short:

  • Purchase and use 62 of their favorite rank 1 gifts to go from 0 to 4000.
  • Purchase and use 105 of their favorite rank 1 gifts to go from 4000 to 6000.
  • Use rank 2 gifts to go from 6000 to 8000.

Mission type crew skills such as Diplomacy and Underworld Trading, as well as the Galactic Trade Network, are sources of gifts below vendor price and for all gifts rank 3 and above.
