Companions' area dialog

Sometimes when entering a new area of the map, my companions will say something about it. Or at least, they used to. The last thing I've heard from them was Jorgan's opinion on certain areas of Nar Shadda. Nothing on Tatooine, nothing on Taris, nothing on Alderaan.

Do they stop having observations after Nar Shadda? Or perhaps it's just Dorne (I've been using her most often)? Is there a list that I can refer to, to hear their tourist commentary?

I've had comments from both Akaavi and Corso on Voss. I love hearing them mentioning things when we are out running around. But I do not know if all companions have comments on the same places or if they have their own special spots on the map that they react to. Have run back to a old place hoping for a comment from a different comp sometimes when I've gotten a comment on a specific place earlier.

It seems to be a random event, and it can trigger even when you've been level 50 for awhile-- I have noticed that it seems to trigger when initially leaving a hub or spaceport, though, more often than out on the planet.

Vette can be particularly funny at the beginning of each area. Most of her comments begin, "Have I ever mentioned..." and then you get something about fear of dying by freezing, poison, drowning or something similar.

Well you need to have a companion out in the first place to trigger dialogue. So once you get your speeder you're likely missing a lot of the commentary.

Just yesterday I was playing my Marauder, and before heading inside a cave on Voss I stopped and gathered an artifact and approached the cave on foot after. Quinn made a comment slightly before entering the cave, something I wouldn't have heard I didn't dismount to gather and just zoomed right into the cave on my speeder. I wonder at all the the little lines I've missed!

It goes on throughout the game, and thus far in my experience all my companions talk at the same physical points, though they'll express different sentiments in keeping with their backgrounds and personalities.

Reliable triggers:
- Entering/exiting a cantina
- Often entering/exiting a planet's spaceport or shuttle pad or main base
- Crossing some fuzzy border near the Endar Spire on Taris - every companion I've used has some perspective on explaining the Spire's history

Khem Val has a pretty funny one when you walk into the cantina on Tatooine:

'I have an excellent sabacc face. That was a joke. I hate sabacc.'

In my experience, some companions seem to be more talkative than others.
Some trigger areas that I have noticed for Imperial companions:
- Tularan Marsh, Taris: a large animal skeleton
- Minimum Security, Belsavis: a hole blown in one of the prison walls
- Gormak Lands, Voss: approaching the giant Gormak cannon

Sometimes the comments totally catch me by surprise. One time on my SW, I walked into Leth Outpost on Hoth and was startled to hear Quinn pipe up with, "I have reinforcements ready if we need them, my lord." Not sure where he was planning on getting said reinforcements, but I guess it's the thought that counts.

Jorgan has this great line if you Quick Travel to the Republic Waystation on Ilum.


But I noticed the last time I went to Ilum and did my usual rounds he didn't say it, (This was Sunday I think) I stopped and waited for him and everything. Its my favorite line. Zenith and Kaliyo both talked to my alt toons today. In fact, Kaliyo rarely shuts up.
