I have amassed quite the cargo bay of companion gifts. Most notably, the courting gifts.

I really wanted to romance Elara Dorne. I currently have her at about 5,000 affection points... and I really want to know when I can start giving her Courting gifts.

I am level 27, almost done with Act I. Is it just level/act based?

Are you getting the gifts from crew skills? My SI is 28 and has had a grand total of two thus far.

Yes. I have an alt with Underworld Trading that has gotten me like a dozen of the things. But when I give them to her it says +0. Yet, I know she is courtable. Am I waiting for a trigger?

I am not certain, but I know from other class companions (Mako) that courting gifts can be used post-act 1. May be different for Elara, but I imagine it'll be the same.

It appears that companion story is dictated by class story progress (and affection) with no real impact by level. You can't complete some later companion missions which contain combat if the level gap is too great, though.

Is she is over 5000 affection points you'll need lvl 3 or better gifts to get anything.

Someone had a nice list 0-3999, 4000-5999 etc but I can't find it. Also you have to get one flirt in first before most companions like them at all.

Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Courting gifts are just another category of gifts and have nothing to do with being in a relationship with a character to the best of my knowledge. I probably gave Doc over 100 courting gifts and my JK was most certainly not Bromancing him.

Also if you have already gotten her to 5000 affection, a lot fo those gifts will probably be (almost) worthless by now as that puts her into the third affection bracket, and I believe that means she will get no affection from rank 1 gifts, and she'll only barely get any from rank 2 gifts.

If I understand correctly, certain companions really like courting gifts even if you're not currently pursuing a relationship. Doc, man-ho that he is, would be one of them. But other companions require you to be either at a certain affection threshhold or a certain point in their story before they evince any interest in courting pretties.

The courting gifts work on her after you finish Act 1. I used all my saved up courting gifts then. She has been at 10000 affection for a awile now.
