The Academy, Ep 5 -“How Do Companions Work?”

The Academy Ep 4 - Which Class Should I Play

Another episode of The Academy is out and this time we get to learn about companions. I’ve told you before how  much I love these videos. They are actually recorded from a podcast and then set to video which is why especially in the first few, you also hear another voice talking with her or saying “mhmm” now and then. But anyway, they are really great, useful videos for anyone new to the game. If you have a friend or family member you’ve been trying to get into the game, or someone you know who has just started to play SWTOR, you definitely want to turn them on to these videos.

So here in Episode 5, Swtorista talks about one of the most unique features of SWTOR – the companion system. Companions can do a lot for you in SWTOR but if  you’re new to the game, you might have a lot of questions. In addition, you might not know how to properly and accurately use them to your advantage. But don’t worry because this video has all your needs covered.

“I’m a new player who’s recently got a bunch of companions. How do companions work? How can companions help in crafting and in battle?”

The Academy is a series focused on the basics of SWTOR. If you want to listen to more, tune in to Ootinicast’s latest episodes. We really love these videos and cannot wait to keep seeing more. Even if you’re not new to the game, they are still enjoyable and very well done. It’s worth the time to give each one a watch/listen.
