Companions have buffs, they just take a while to show up, I think

Please fix this. It can't be that hard.

Hi everyone,

For those of us that play with one or two others on a regular basis, we know this can lead to frustrating encounters and/or missed companion affection. (I know I've had conversations where I forgot to resummon after using Rocket Boost for instance.)

The good news is that Game Update 2.2.1 has a lot of bug fixes, and the issue preventing Companion Characters from summoning on dismount while players are in a group is one of them!

*Edit* There's also a separate bug fix that ensures that Companions are summoned before a conversation begins if it's started while mounted, as this can happen to players who are not in a group.

Thank goodness. It's such a pain to have to resummon a companion when you get knocked off your speeder while in group. Oh wait, you can't.....

Wow, nice...I had gotten into the mindset a long time ago that this was just a working as intended feature. Hooray!

That's great news , I wonder if you can look into companions loosing buffs , after dismounting a speeder and after catching a taxi please ?

Cheers,

Yep, that one has been around since Day 1 and it's a big pain. The way people like to rush through flashpoints, you gotta be really quick on the draw each time to access the elevator and re-summon before someone jumps into combat again.

Excellent news! I hope this works for all group sizes.
On a side note, will the bug that fails to resummon your companion after using an elevator (in flashpoints, heroics, etc.) be fixed as well?
