Jedi Knight Companion Guide

Republic

During their class story (levels 1-50), Jedi Knights meet five companions.  This guide will tell you how to raise their influence rank so that they are more effective in combat and get a larger bonus to crew skill missions.

Updated with Patch 4.0.2 changes (November 17, 2015).

To recruit these companions, just play through your class story missions. Your companions will be the same for both the guardian and the sentinel advanced classes.

Jedi Knights may also recruit ship droids and HK-51, cartel market companions, and after level 60, Knights of the Fallen Empire main characters, alliance recruits,   and Star Fortress recruits.

The most efficient use of each gift type for a jedi knight:

Are you trying to decide what to do with a gift that you just received as a random drop? This chart shows which of your companions will gain the largest amount of influence from a gift because they “love” or “favorite” it.

*None of your class companions “love” or “favorite” this gift type. 

If you are leveling multiple classes simultaneously, or have recruited other companions, then click here for a guide on how to use gifts efficiently that includes all companions. It may make sense to mail the gift to one of your other characters. Otherwise, sell or trade these gifts to get a type that your companion likes better.

Gift Preferences

Companion names are linked to their page on the official website, where you will find a short biography of each character.

“Love” gifts give the highest influence gain, “Favorite” gifts give a medium amount of influence gain, and “Like” gifts give only a small amount of influence. Gift rank and rarity also affect how much influence your companion gets from each gift. Gift categories that are not listed will give this companion no influence.
