That is an interesting point. I went to 63 on my freebe with the run of the mill companions that were given as part of the story with no influence at all. My gear was the orginal that came with the freebe, so perhaps combat is so dumbed down (seems like that although I have a few chapters left) that it does not matter.

I am not sure how many people are going to pay 60K a pop for 600 items to max out one companions affection.

Better get them up for sale before people catch on.

PS - I squirlled away a full cargo hold of stacks of companion gifts in anticipation of the expansion. They are probably worth doo dah now and the full cargo hold of stacks will be needed to gin up a few of my companions.
I agree that many people won't but there are super rich players in this game ( we are amongst them no doubt ) with really nothing to spend their credits on now ( especially with conquest change ) so why not max gifts to get your comp as strong as possible for soloing content and for whatever the crazy crit rate might end up as ... 100% maybe?

Basically I am fairly confident on this increase demand well beyond what it was before, even if people don't want to go for cap they'll increase it somewhat where as before no one could go beyond the 10K cap.

Anyways, yeah, seems like a mind numbing grind to get them to 250k. But in terms of combat effectiveness, I don't think it's not even remotely needed to do your questing with them (full influence I mean ) I soloed the H2 and I don't even got below 90% with Talos healing me.

Maybe I grind one companion's influence for each of my crafters and that's it.
I don't think they intend for us to just go ZOOOOM and hit 250K like we did with 10K though and that's why it is so crazily high.

It's most likely designed as a gradual point we reach towards through gifts, doing content, the story and future content.

I still believe based on what Khevar is saying though that the benefits of gifts are massive right now even if you have no intention of going to 250K, look what 60K gets. FAR better than pre 4.0 in all regards.

If the grade 42+ mod market actually becomes a thing, having a comp with a big +crit chance would be pretty great. It looks like each "rank" gives +0.5% crit chance. So a fully-maxxed-out comp would give +25% crit chance.
Cool so not 100% lol

Whoah, you out-dpsed your companions before 3.0? IIRC, my companions were pissed when the GSISUS droid topped them.

I know, right? I keep hearing the Veg-O-Matic commercial in my head when running with the GSI droid

I went to 50 influence with Jaesa Dark Side. It took over 500 purple grade 5 weapon gifts to get there.

What I am now noticing is that Treasue Hunting is no longer granting gift fragments for the gift missions. Can somebody else confirm this. I lined up 5 toons and sent 30 comps on TH gift missions at all grades and didn't receive one gift fragment. I had about 1k purple fragments banked before 4.0 so I can trade a lot for the 1:1 trade. I guess the no more gift fragments was the trade off or they are very rare.

Correct.

From the patch notes:
Quote:
Gift Fragments can now be used to purchase Gifts at the Companion Gift Vendor on either Fleet. These Fragments are no longer available from Missions

Thank You for posting that.

Now I won't have to go nuts doing lower level missions in hopes of getting some.
