Companion Influence and Bolster Formulas

Does anyone know the actual formulas for calculating companion stats including companion influence and bolster bonus?

The only thing I know is that companions have their own attributes. These attributes are increased by the bolster bonus and the companion influence bonus. Companion gear is not influenced by either bonus.

It does not seem to be an additive formula like new_stat = (1 + bolster + influence) * old_stat.

It does not seem to a multiplicative formula like new_stat = (1 + bolster) * (1 + influence) * old_stat.

Any ideas?

    Is there anyone who actually knows that? Where are all the Theory crafters?

    I try not to think or worry about formula, but I will be happy to punch @mdarkangel#4696 's code into a spreadsheet and test it out. I will bounce the math back here on this thread after I play a few rounds today.

    Please do so. It hurt my brain just looking at the formula.

    So is the bolster bonus tiny or is that just me?

    no need to create your own spreadsheet, I've already done that. :)

    Good! Because I got some negative values when I tried mine. lol

    Made me double check my formulas. Sometimes typos creep in, but they are correct.

    Thanks for the 🍪

    Cr = Companion Rarity

    Legendary = 25

    Epic = 20

    Rare = 15

    Uncommon = 10

    Common = 5

    Cl = Companion Level

    Ci = Companion Influence

    Bb = Bolster Bonus



    Augments:

    (200Cl+ClCr-800-4Cr+50ClCi-200Ci)*(1+(Bb/2))



    Non-Augments:

    200Cl-800+100ClBb-400Bb+4ClCr-16Cr+200ClCi-800Ci+2ClCrBb-8CrBb+100ClCiBb-400CiBb

    I do not know if your formula is accurate or not, but the Bolster Bonus and Companion Influence need to be represented as decimals, where 50% equals .50 when used in the formula.

    Yes, I would say his formulas are correct. I downloaded the spread sheet. However once again this shows that bolster is a micro manage effect on your companions.



    This character has 33.4% Influence and 8.5% bolster for a base of 13,766, today I plan to add another epic for 11% this will only increase to 13,964. Remember this number can also be represented in a percentage (13.766% raised to 13.964%) +0.198 whoo hoooo? :-1:

    I did a little algebra on the non-augment companions:

    f=200Cl-800+100ClBb-400Bb+4ClCr-16Cr+200ClCi-800Ci+2ClCrBb-8CrBb+100ClCiBb-400CiBb

    substitute:

    l=Cl = level
    r=Cr = rarity
    i=Ci = influence
    b=Bb = bolster

    f=200l-800+100lb-400b+4lr-16r+200li-800i+2lrb-8rb+100lib-400ib
    =200l-800+100lb-400b+200li-800i+100lib-400ib+4lr-16r+2lrb-8rb
    =100(2l-8+lb-4b+2li-8i+lib-4ib)+2r(2l-8+lb-4b)
    =100(2l+lb-4b-8+2li+lib-4ib-8i)+2r(2l+lb-4b-8)

    substitute:

    a=2l+lb-4b-8
    =(l-4)(b+2)

    f=100(a+2li+lib-4ib-8i)+2ra
    =100a+100i(2l+lb-4b-8)+2ra
    =100a+100ia+2ra
    =2a(50+50i+r)
    =2a(r+50(i+1))
    =2(l-4)(b+2)(r+50(i+1))

    substitute:

    f=2(Cl-4)(Bb+2)(Cr+50(Ci+1))

    (200Cl+ClCr-800-4Cr+50ClCi-200Ci)*(1+(Bb/2))

    ...
    200Cl-800+100ClBb-400Bb+4ClCr-16Cr+200ClCi-800Ci+2ClCrBb-8CrBb+100ClCiBb-400CiBb

    This looks like one of my boyfriends passwords, lol. I showed him and he said it's awesome and thanks.
