I have finally gotten all of my companions to level 50 and higher! This was a huge goal for me to accomplish. When I started farming for gold to buy training tomes, I had only 6 or 7 companions at that level. Now, all 28 are! It took a lot of work, and a lot of gold, but here they are!
As you can see, some of them are higher than level 50. This is because I got them after I had already reached max level. It isn't possible to promote a companion past your own current level, using training tomes.
Something I am going to do with my next pirate is this. Instead of finishing side quests that have companions as rewards as I go along, I am going to wait until I am level 50. Then I will complete those quests, since companions get recruited at the same level as you or higher. This will allow me to save all those training points for my main companions and train them up faster.
Also, another tip is to finish side quests. I got countless training points as rewards from all the side quests I did. If I were to guess, I would say about half the side quests give anywhere from 1-3 companion training points. That adds up quick!
My next goal is to get enough gold to get 10 more training tomes (the most you can purchase) so that I will be all set when the level cap is raised!
If you are planning on training up companions, good luck! :) And if you need gold to help you out, remember about the gold farming event I am having tomorrow. You can see the details here: Gold Rush Event
Thanks for reading and see you next time! Have fun!
