BioWare has released a quick hotfix patch for Star Wars: The Old Republic to fix a companion gear bug that surfaced following the 1.5.1 update.

Once the 1.5.1 update went live yesterday players were complaining about an issue with companion gear, where the game wasn’t registering them as wearing any, leaving them with base stats. The only way to fix it was to completely unequip and re-equip all the gear, simple enough, except whenever you moved zones, jumped on a speeder, or did several other things the gear reset again.

The issue has now been fixed, the 1.5.1a patch notes can be found below:

Companion Characters

  • Companion Characters will now summon with the proper stat bonuses from equipped gear.

Cartel Market

  • Made layout adjustments to the Cartel Market.
