What i don't understand is does the bonus only apply to the droid or does it stack? ie. if you have companion with +1 crif for foo and you get droid sensor +1 crit for foo. Does your crafting companion craft foo with +2 crit or do you have two companions with +1 foo crafting?

Two companions with +2 crit. With mission and gathering skills, this helps a lot. With crafting skills, it really doesn't matter -- you only really need one character crafting.

Wait, the bonuses don't apply to just the character that has them?

No. They only apply to the character that has them.

For instance, having two characters with +2 crit underworld trading doesn't give you +4 crit underworld trading to all characters, but it does give you two characters with additional critical bonus on that trade skill, as opposed to just one (or none).

That's what I thought. I think your answer to the above question confused me.

Is it correct that companion affection increases the crit chance with +0 to +5% (presumeably +1% for every 2000 affection)? I saw a dev post on this but have been unable to find it again.

In that case I dont see how droid sensors are very useful for increasing your crit chance? Even with +5% crit, the droid isnt better than a maxed companion (and I personally maxed mine out pretty quickly by doing dailies). Or does the droid count as being at max affection for the purpose of crafting? I've found him to crit fairly often and he does seem to think I'm pretty awesome.
Btw, sensors require legacy 7 to use now - not 12.

Thank you for making and maintaining this guide, Bowser, I find myself revisiting it a lot.

EDIT: ok - so I realised you can gain affection with the droid now by giving it companion gifts. Both models really like technology and especially cultural artifacts.

It's a really good guide, just think about editing some font colours, dark green on black is not ideal

I don't know for sure, but I am pretty sure that a zero affection companion can still crit... rarely.

Either way, you answered your own question, you can give gifts to your ship droid now. He loves cultural artifacts.

And, you're welcome of course!

Edit: I'll check and see about them changing the sensors. If it's true, thanks for bringing it to my attention.

I have personally checked my astromech droid, and they still require 12 legacy to use. So, you are mistaken.
