So like a few days ago I decided to login.... only to find what I thought was a mess. All of my comps where either missing all or some of their gear(which I later found in the cargo bay or I never did) and level automatically lowers to the max lvl of the planet(for example: on tatooine, I'm lvl 30). There are a few other issues but all in all I just find it a mess and I personally don't like what Bioware did.

There are a few bugs being worked out regarding old companions so you are not alone with that one. That being said you should be able to obtain your old companions until you begin the expansion. I know Aric was having an issue with Jorgan on his commando.

As for the level they implemented a level sync so you will automatically sync to the level of the planet you are on. I know this can be a bit overwhelming at first but you will get the hang of it. It actually makes it challenging again. Now even though your level goes down, you still keep all of your abilities and passives so you will still be over powered for the area.

All of the gear for your companions will be in in-game messages because they returned the starter gear your companions had. Gear no longer changes companion stats it is only cosmetic now. Makes it a lot easier so now you don't have to worry about modding companions.

I hope I see you on the game soon, I'll be on tomorrow I'll help you figure everything out.

It was much more then just an update, the expansion is live now, and has been released. All the changes are due to the new expansion. Sure you cant do any of the new story content but every other change they have brought with the expansion is in the game for everyone.

I tried to cover all this stuff in the last few months so people could be ready for the changes when they come. Such as the companions, and them not needing gear anymore due to them not needing any stats. Because of this they sent you in your mail probably 10 or more  mail messages with gear you companions either had on, or they sent you the gear they started with so if you liked the look of that armor you could again use it. That said, its going to be a bitch to go through all the armors and figure out what you need and dont need now. I sold so much crap that I dont need now, that I spend a ton of credits on before. If you are missing any gear that your companions had on and did not receive any of it because of the companion system changes then I would do a ticket to try to get it back. Like Llunna said, there are some bugs that have caused different problems with the companions, their gear, and just the companion system in general.

Level sync is the new system that makes it so you drop to the level of the planet you are on. So if you are on Coruscant then you are automatically dropped to like level 20. Now this isn't all bad, you still get all of your high level abilities, and passive things you have got. It pretty much just drops your health for the most part. The only real thing you will have troubles with now is world bosses. You will not be able to solo a world boss anymore because of level sync. I personally like it, but at the same time it can be frustrating, and I can understand peoples displeasure with it.

Make sure if you have any other questions or need any help just ask. I haven't been on today because I am sick, and feeling like shit, but I hope to be back in the next day or two if I am feeling better.

P.S. I hope this doesn't come off sounding rude, I don't mean it like that. Like I said I am just feeling like crap sick, and I worked hard to try to bring this information to everybody before the update was released. Posting all the threads and news post, but most of it was never read.

On the plus side, you will make a crap load of credits selling the things you no longer need. Such as ear peices, implants, relics, shields, all those things you would normally put on your companion you can now sell.

Not sure about anybody else but I had cargo bays full of stuff I was saving for companions and what not. I sold almost all of it besides gear I would possibly wear myself, and make a lot of credits off it.
