Ask Mr. Robot’s SWTOR Item Database

I received the comment above on an article I wrote last week about companion affection and the legacy unlocks associated with it. At the time I didn’t know that AMR even had an item database for SWTOR, much less that I could link to items in it. I had spoken to the team at Ask Mr. Robot around the time of SWTOR’s early access about testing out their SWTOR features but after I had agreed they never contacted me again (I thought we were friends too, AMR. Why the silent treatment, eh?).

As you can see from my WoW leveling guides and heirloom guides, I’m real big on linking to items when I have a reliable database that I can look things up in and actually work with. Up to this point I’ve been using Torhead, mostly because I had no other option, but also partly because I was hoping that Torhead would eventually get somewhere close to Wowhead in terms of database functionality. Here we are 4.5 months post-launch and Torhead is still lackluster at best as far as items are concerned.

Earning Affection With Picky Companions

In the world(s) of SWTOR, not all companions are created equal. In terms of affection gains and companion gifts, there are some companions who have multiple gifts that fall into the Favorite category, some who have only one, and some who have none at all. Since Companion Gifts are the fastest/easiest method of increasing affection with your companions this means that you may end up with a companion that’s very hard to raise affection with.

In this article I’m going to tell you who those picky companions are who don’t like any of your special gifts, and we’ll look at what your options are for increasing their affection despite their pickiness.

Legacy and Companions

Today I wanted to talk just a little bit more about companions and how they relate to the Legacy system. I’ll start off by going over what perks exist in the Legacy system for companions and why you would want to unlock them, then we’ll get into how and when you unlock those perks.

I’m also going to talk about companion gifts and how they relate to each of the companions in the game as well as methods you can use to maximize your affection with your companions outside of companion gifts.

A Closer Look at Legacy 1.2

With the legacy system finally in place, and having had a little time to actually play around with it now, I wanted to take another look at the legacy perks that came through in the live patch to look again at what options we have for unlocking and just how much it’s going to cost me to get my hands on it. Some of the features that you can unlock are relatively easy to get, some harder, some are fairly cheap, and some are mindbogglingly expensive.

I’m going to look at the entire legacy system here, so I’ll also touch just a little bit on the family tree, then we’ll get into the global unlocks which is where the price analysis will come into play, and we’ll wrap it up with a quick look at the Coming Soon tab of the legacy screen
