since the new patch that accrued yesterday there has been a bug that made me shelf my smuggler. Today i just finished nar shadaa and expected to be running around with my new found wookie friend like the smuggler i am but alas the bug hits.

After i leave nar shadaa it seems that the wookie is gone. He's not shown on the ship, crew skill list. i figured hey, ill just continue the story and see if he shows up....now im on tatioone and still no sign of bowdaar ever joining my crew.

I play a gunslinger so i was also excited with a melee tank so he can keep the mobs distracted. Untill this problem is looked at im shelving my smuggler until this is fixed.

Thank you

Sometimes not gaining a companion can occour when you do not follow the "intended path" to complete the quest.

<Begin example>

Quest says head to your Ship and use your Holo terminal.

You choose to Fleet pass and do some stuff on Fleet.

<end example>


By not physically going to your hanger on the planet. The game cannot begin a Conversation which, for the sake of argument, happens in your hanger in which your companion may choose to join your Crew.

Try going back to the planet and exiting your hanger and then Re-enter it.

i did that also. I left nar shadaa, did the quest right after that but bowdaar was gone even then during the intended route. He's just gone and seeing the smuggler forums i'm not the only one experiencing this.

It seems it has to do with the new patch since other smugs are reporting that this didn't happen last week.

Multiple people have been reporting this in the Smuggler Player board.

Just make sure you have a /bug report filed out ingame this is something they're going to have on the top of their priority list.

...Unfortunately, this bug happens even when you do everything in the proper order.
