Thanks to the downtime, which is always during my nightshift job, I was bored enough to make some Gift Charts. Enjoy.

Sith Inquisitor

Sith Warrior

Bounty Hunter

Imperial Agent


These were made for the purposes of my guild, so I only made ones for the Empire classes. If Republic people want them as well, say so and I'll do that next week during the downtime.

Not sure why people keep linking swtorface. Yes, the information is listed there, but it is not in an easy to use chart that compares side-by-side which gifts are best for which companion.

The charts simply make it faster to get maximum affection gain for every gift.

And that "node" link is horrible. It doesn't even list the "favorites".

Thanks!

This is great, thank you! Been wasting a lot of time/money trying to guess what my companions like, hehe. This helps a LOT! Thanks for putting the effort into it and sharing it.

Good idea, the format is still not THAT friendly, but much better than most lists we find around the web.

Personally I am using this one: http://dulfyforce.wordpress.com/2011...mpanion-gifts/

Here's a table of how much affection you actually gain. For an explanation, read below.

http://i40.tinypic.com/2hq8izp.png

And here's (mostly) how the affection is calculated (at least for non-negative affection values):

The base affection gain is 24.

There are a few things that affect how much affection you get:
  • Gift type
  • Gift rank and current affection
  • Gift rarity (colour)

Gift Type
For the gift type, each companions separately ranks each gift type on a scale with 4 grades. Torhead used a "star" rating, so that is what I have in the table. Referencing the linked sites, "1 star" is "likes", "2 star" is "favorite", "3 star" is "loves".

For a 1 star gift, multiply the affection gain by 1
For a 2 star gift, multiply the value by 2.25
For a 3 star gift, multiply the value by 4


Gift rank and current affection
Your affection value with your companion is converted into an affection rank. Each rank consists of a range of 2000 affection and starts with rank 1 for 0 to 2000 (or possibly 0 to 1999, I havn't managed to get any data on the exact value of the threshold).

Subtract this from the gift rank and call it the gift rank difference. E.g. if you have 6500 affection (affection rank 4) and give a gift of rank 2, the gift rank difference is 2 - 4 = -2.

Gift rank
difference Multiplier
-4 0
-3 0
-2 0.2
-1 0.5
0 1
1 1.1
2 1.3
3 1.5
4 1.5


Gift rarity
For a premium gift, multiply the gain by 1
For a prototype gift, multiply the gain by 1.666...
For an artifact gift, multiply the value by 4


After multiplying it all together, the value is rounded to the closest integer.
