Release Notes


Combat and Powers


We have generally increased the healing output of companions, starting with those noted below. This change is roughly a 50-100% healing increase for many companions, with some exceptions for those that already performed strongly (we’re looking at you Dedicated Squire). We're still iterating on final companion healing balance, but hope this pushes them into a place where they feel like more viable alternatives to DPS-only companions.
