Is there a updated list of companions in where I can quickly see which one is ranged and which one is melee and which one has force or not?
I think they changed a lot of things regarding companions in the last years and everything I found is outdated or ends before KOTFE.

I don't know of any specific list. You could scroll through the companion sections of places like Tor-Fashion, Vulkk, etc, to maybe glean the info, but it could take a while.

The easiest thing to do would be to just try out your companions to see how they behave.

You could also ask here for info on specific companions.

man... that is a whole bunch of more companions than I thought... I have 48 chars one for every spec, seems that and the server limit is not suffcient to have a 1:1 char to comp ratio... seems i have to declare some double comp chars...

If you buy some character slots, you can get to 1:1. The "hard" server limit(1) if you max out your character slots is 100.

(1) "Hard" is in quotes because some dedicated altoholics were maxed out on multiple servers in 2017 when they merged servers. The theoretical maximum for those people is something in excess of 200, although they cannot create new characters in that condition because there's no way to buy enough slots to have an *open* slot.
