Companion Gift & Influence Guide

Companion Influence Basics

Companion “Influence” is replacing Companion “Affection”
With Game Update 4.0, Companions will no longer have “Affection”, they will instead have “Influence”.
The Affection that a player has gained with each of their Companions will be converted into Influence, 1:1.
Max influence is now rank 50 which requires a total of 250k influence.

What’s the difference between Affection and Influence?
Affection was a measure of how much a Companion likes you. Influence works as a measure of the total impact
that you’ve had upon a person. When you make decisions with a Companion, whether that Companion approves
or disapproves, you will still build Influence with them. Gaining Influence does not mean that the character
necessarily likes you more, or that they don’t disagree with your decisions.

Influence directly increases Companion Power
Influence kind of works like “relationship XP” with your Companion. As you build Influence with a Companion,
your Influence rank will increase. Every time a Companion’s Influence ranks up, that Companion gains
a scaling bonus to Presence (which increases Companion damage, healing, and health) as well as bonuses
to crew skill time efficiency and critical rate.

Old Companion Tradeskill bonuses removed
The old bonuses were nice but sometimes became problematic when the correct crafting choice also happened
to be the Companion you most wanted to have with you. So all previous crafting bonuses to Crew Skill performance
are removed and they now gain new bonuses based on their influence rank.

New Influence Bonuses
Each rank adds the following bonuses

A Companion with influence rank 50 will have 2500 presence, 75% time efficiency for crew skill tasks
and 25% critical rate for crew skill tasks.

 

Gift Changes

Classic Companion gifts still work
Companion gifts now grant Influence instead of Affection. Gifts degrade more slowly and they’ll grant
more Influence than they would have granted Affection.

New Companion gifts – best choice for special Companions
These new kind of Companions Gifts are available from Scrap Peddlers.

New gift value
There are new Legendary rank 6 gifts available. You can get them from packs or the gift vendor on Odessen.

 

Push Companion Ranks Cheap & Effective

Choose “Love”
Take care to give your companions only gifts they “Love”.
You have so many different Companions that there is no need to waste gifts just for a “Like”.

Unlock Character Perk Altruism
Don’t forget to unlock Character Perk “Legacy of Altruism III” which will increase the amount of Companion Influence
gained from gifts by 30 %.

True Romance
You will no longer be able to use Gifts for your old Companions once you get access to the storyline of KOTFE.
Could be a good Idea to push these companions to rank 50 previously.

Recommendation – choose gift rank and value
From influence rank 1 to influence rank 10, rank 5 gifts will have the same value as rank 6 gifts no matter if they are
Premium, Prototyp or Artifact. Rank 5 Premium gifts are a good choice but not easy to get.
