Ashara zavros affection
This topic is currently unavailable. Sorry. :(
Here. All you need to know about Ashara.
False. Companions have gifts that they dislike, like, favor, and love. Generally, romance-able companions do not favor gifts from the same gender as they are. Hence why Ashara has either an X or one star for gifts from females, and has higher stars for gifts from male characters. Non romance-able companions follow similar trends, but the gender of your character has no bearing on them.
The "2500" affection thing is usually when you can start romancing the companion and they start accepting Courting gifts. They can still accept other gifts that they like at any affection.
And if you're not going to understand parts of the game don't comment about them. Companions do not accept "any gift", as you said. They accept gifts that they like, favor, and love. They do not accept gifts that they do not like. So you cannot give any gift to a companion and expect to get an affection gain (which is what the first part of your post said). Sorry that you gave wrong information and I corrected it. My bad.
Ashara does not accept Courting, Imperial Memorabilia, Luxury, and Technology from female characters (and the ones she does are only "like" quality); nor does she accept Trophy or Underworld Good from either male or female characters. So if you're male she only doesn't accept two categories, which may be why you think you can throw any gift at her because male characters practically can. For comparison, Khem Val does not accept 5 of the categories. So no, companions do not "generally accept any gift."
Again, sorry that a helpful forum member is correcting false information on a community run forum site.
Edit: Underlined for clarity. Apparently that was needed. You can give any gift to a companion... but that doesn't mean you'll get an affection gain.
Ashara is very different from any other companion I've played with. At start, she doesn't react to any gift with more than "Like" quality affection(1 star in torhead). That means that even if you give her a gift that's her favorite type, she will give you only 24 affection max.
That 2500 affection mark mentioned earlier might be the exact point where she starts giving normal amounts of affection but I'm not 100% sure.. I remember seeing a change at around the 2000 affection point and a bit later on she started acting normally towards gifts so it might be tied to conversation progress.
edit: Forgot to mention that my character is male so that's one advantage I had on gaining affection with her. He's also maxed Light Side, dunno if it matters but thought I'd mention it =P I'm probably gonna switch to Dark Side though after I get Ashara to max affection and do all her conversations.
Kelborn, you are both being misleading, get off your podium.
Yes, she has a preference for some gift categories, however, she will quite happily take any gift you give her.
If you give her a Rank 6 artefact trophy, she will happily walk to the nearest bin and dispose of it for you, netting you a big 0 affection. Saying she won't accept them is as misleading as saying she will.
