How Influence Works

With Fallen Empire, affection has being changed to influence. Instead of a max of 10,000 affection with your companions, you now have a max influence rank of 50 which requires a total of 250k influence. Your previous affection capped companions are now influence rank 10 and you have to bring them up to the new maximum influence rank again.

Your companions will lose their previous crafting bonuses and gear but they now gain new bonuses based on their influence rank.

Each influence rank give the following bonuses.

Which means a influence rank 50 companion will have 2500 presence, 75% time efficiency for crew skill tasks and 25% critical rate for crew skill tasks.

Companion Gifts

Companion gifts still work on raising the influence of your companions. Previously companion gifts only goes up to rank 5 and artifact rank but now rank 6 gifts and Legendary rank gifts are available. In addition, two new kinds of companions gifts are available: Delicacies and Maintenance. Delicacies are mostly used by the new companions you acquire in expansion while Maintenance gifts are mostly favored by droids.

Remember that there is a Character Perk called Legacy of Altruism that will give you 30% more affection from companion gifts and is very cheap to unlock (90K credits in total to unlock all 3 tiers).

Rank 1-2 Premium Gifts available from the fleet vendor on Galactic Trade Market section of the fleet.They cost 200-600 credits each and are good to feed to your companions for the first couple influence ranks.

How much influence would I gain by giving my companion this gift?

Gift rarity: Green = Premium, Blue = Prototype, Pink = Artifact, Purple = Legendary.

The influence ranks (IRanks) listed here are thresholds so a companion of the rank 14 for example would receive the same gift values as a rank 10 companion and a companion of the rank 45 would get same gift values as a rank 40 companion.

How to use the charts

  1. Find out what your companion LIKE, FAVOURITE AND LOVE.
  2. Find out your companion influence rank in the Companion & Contacts Window. The value listed there are thresholds so for example Influence Rank 16 would use IRank 15 as it just crossed that threshold.
  3. Find out what is the rank and rarity of the companion gift you plan to give them.
  4. Look up the value in the chart by finding the correct chart and then look at the corresponding value row (companion gift rank/rarity) and column (companion influence rank).
  5. For example, I want to feed Lana Delicacies Gifts. She FAVOURITE them so it is the 9x multiplier chart. She is Influence Rank 9 and I am feeding her a Rank 2 Pink (Artifact Gift) so I would look up the column IRank 6 and row Rank 2 Pink to get a value of 288. The values are assuming you do not have the character perk that increase the values by 30%.

You can regain access to these companions after you finish Chapter 8 of Knights of the Fallen Empire by interacting with a terminal inside your alliance base in Odessen (same location as the mission datapads in that little room left of the base).
