Game Update 4.0.2 is here, bringing the companion nerf. In our discussion, guests Bill and Andrew talk about the changes KotFE has wrought upon the game’s economy, along with the usual credit-making tips.

1. Introduction

Here’s the link mentioned in TheUnNamedHero’s tip for affection farming in The Black Talon.

3. Holofeed

  • Game Update 4.0.2 was deployed in a longer-than-expected 9 hour maintenance.
  • The player referral program has been temporarily disabled due to an issue that is being investigated. Rewards from existing referrals will continue, but new referrals cannot be made.
  • The types of gifts that are preferred by our followers has been changed, such that all companions “love” at least one type of gift. Both Dulfy and TOR Community have useful guides; there’s also a simplified guide here.
  • Companion healing and DPS have been reduced in Game Update 4.0.2.
  • In EA’s Form 10-Q Quarterly Report, SWTOR is named as a primary driver for their “Service and Other Revenue”.
