Also maxing affection on each companion will give you a nice little bonus to your stats.
Depending on companion type, it'll give one of these:
+1% accuracy
+1% crit chance
+1% crit multiplier
+% HP
and something else that I don't remember.

So maxing affection is worth it in the end.

starting doing my dailies too, so yeah feeling a lot more like iv got stuff to get my teeth into.

one more thing if anyone is still reading this but what is the deal with companions and the affliction ? what does it actually do if i get it up to max ?
One other thing affection does: If you get it to 10,000 and do all companion conversations (usually in chapter 3), you get +10 presence legacy wide (per companion). So this means the more alts you level, the easier it is to level your next alt. I'm on my 3rd toon, and the first few planets are an absolute breeze because my companions are far stronger than the opposition.
