Beware last patch made companions unplayable

DeeweDeewe Long Beach, CAPosts: 1,965Member

Unless you are caped or don't use companion I'd suggest people putting TOR on hold for the next hours/days as they are totally messed up

 

"All of my companions have under 10k Health? And the old 're-equip gear' trick is undone the moment you mount/dismount/desummon/zone in to another area. 

So basically companions were made useless last patch. Awesome


-EDIT-


IF YOU DO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING 

GEAR REVERTS TO BEING 'NON EXISTENT'


- Take an elevator
- Summon a different companion
- When a companion returns from crew skill
- Desummon and resummon same companion.
- Start a quest
- Mount/dismount
- Send your companion to sell inventory junk
- Using your holocommunicator
- Using Rocketboost
- Using Quicktravel
- Using Priority Transport/fleet
- Getting knocked off speeder throws you in to combat and therefore cannot gear switch = usually means you die or run away clinging for life.
- Using any of the hangar elevators on fleet.



Yeeeh totally not gamebreaking to have to re-equip gear any time you do any of the above."

Seems there's another more annoying bug:

If when you log in, as a subscriber, the system cannot get whatever it needs to verify your subscription it:
1) Deletes all digital subscriber/founder/etc items
2) Locks your toon like a F2P toon
3) Deletes the configuration for your 3-6th bars
etc.

Lucky for me I didn't have things like additional bank tabs on that toon or more than 300k credits 

Logged out, log back in, sub is back, digital items are in the mail like a new toon; configuration is gone.

    Don't they have a PTS?  That's pretty funny though.

    Patch for tomorrow will likely be the fix for it, companions were still playable, just massively inconvenienced, de&re equipping gear sorted them out temporarily.

    Here is BioWare response to bug

    There is currently an issue with companion stats not working properly with their equipped gear. This occurs whenever a companion is summoned after being dismissed. As a workaround to this, please unequip all gear on your companion, and then re-equip all of their gear again in order to get their proper stats back. You will need to do this whenever you summon your companion.

    Please know that this is a priority issue for us and that we are working to resolve it as quickly as possible.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    Probably this. If they still have any of those amatuer devs working for them like during dev time then its hopeless.

    Well, it's a set of nasty bugs that shouldn't happen. Are you sure it's not just a new cash shop feature where you have to pay to equip gear on your companions. ;) Regretfully, it doesn't match Bethesda and the dragons flying around in circles backwards while shooting fire out of there butts for lol. I mean we all need a good lol sometimes and I bet SWTOR fans do too through all the tears of rage.

    To all haters in this thread.

    I resubbed a few days ago and it's better now, more players, i got a newly started guild and you get into flash points and warzones fast. Cartel Coins are much cheaper than the currency in other games if you look on how much items in the Cartel Market cost.

    Still play some GW2, but not much.

    Bug is fixed.
