Special Companions

Special Companions came out with the release of Knights of the Fallen Empire.
There are two categories: Creatures and Droids. Both are a little bit different
than our usual companions – more like a combat pet with special abilities and needs.

 

How to get a Special Companion

Special Companions are cartel market exclusive and only available via cartel packs. They are very rare.
If you are unlucky with your packs, you still have the chance to get them at the GTN. The packs
won’t contain the Companions themselves but a “Handler License” or an “Operation Requisition“.
These items will unlock a mission leading you to the Cartel Bazaar. Depending on the Item you will have
different conversations.

Afterwards you can call your Special Companions via Alliance Window “N”.
Once you have your Companions in your Collection you can unlock them Legacy wide with 400 Cartel Coins.

It is said that “If you run from a pack of Akk Dogs, they will chase you until you’re dinner. But if you stand
firm and look the lead dog in the eye, they will ignore you out of respect.” Akk dogs are Force-sensitive,
able to form a Force bond with their master. They are great Companions, perfect eligible for protection.

They have spikes along their back, and a long tail that in the wild allows the Nexu to swing from tree branch
to tree branch. They have extremely sharp instincts and reflexes, although they are known to tire easily,
and often use swift movements to finish an enemy quickly, biting down and thrashing their head about
to break their victim’s neck.

multiple tasks in different combat roles.

is one of many ancient species from the planet Taris’s prehistory, bevore the Jedi Civil War.
After the planets bombardment, they appeared again on the planet devastated surface. It turned out that
these remarkably creatures had survived for millennia beneath Taris’s sprawling undercity. They could be seen
flying around the planet’s toxic swamps. The pollution from Taris’s destroyed industries made the bogstalker

Crew Skills:
Creatures and Droids are not crafting-capable – they have no Crew Skills and they won’t appear
in your Crew Skill Window.

 

Influence, Gifts & Customizations

Influence
Their Influence rank system work as usual, but they are very particular with gifts. There are old gifts that work,
but they are less effective because they just “like” it. Creatures “like” Military Gear, Droids “like” Technology.

Special Gifts
Our new special Companions prefer new special gifts. Creatures “love” Delicacies and Droids “love” Maintenance.

You can get these new gifts from quest rewards, packs, “Commander’s Share of the loot” crates or you can simply buy
them from the Scrap Peddlers. You find them located at the Cartel Bazaar or you can also use the Decoration Vendors.

There are no legendary Delicacies or Maintenance gifts.
