What is presence worth to you compared to your main stat?

Depends on what you're doing. If you solo a lot then it's sort of ok, but if you're 50 and raiding it's pretty much worthless.
Evil will always triumph, because good is dumb.

It isn't found on any gear, so you have nothing to worry about.

Read the damn description of the stat before you post nonsense.

The main variance in presence will depend on how many datacrons you have gathered.

Aye, Presence is pretty much the general "make companion better" stat. Does nothing if you don't have your companion out (Warzones, Flashpoints, Operations, Ilum, sheer boredom, forgetfulness, etc).

There are presence stims. His post was not nonsense, yours however...

Anyways,

It increased the HP of companions but not much else I could see.

presence directly affects the effectiveness of your companion in crafting/combat/missions.

Otherwise it has some minor affect on how NPCs deal with you
Those who stand for nothing will fall for anything. JH

The stat is utterly broken. It baffles me they didnt see this a year ago.

WHy make a stat less than 1% would use? Pointless, remove it.


Cant raid with companions, cant pvp, cant do FPs atm atleast.
Your story may not last forever; but it will exist forever.
