Recently i have promoted Lucky jack Russel to tier three after giving him his epic's and starting to do Egg Shen quest I noticed one of his strategies didn't work well with him (Vengeance Strike) When i first promoted him i gave him relentless and vengeance strike relentless works fine but jack usually block or dodges to the talent barely activates so the question is if i reset him will i have to do his promotion quests again or will it stay third tier?

When you reset him all you have to redo is choosing his training skills. The promotion quests will not have to be redone.

Hello purple captain. When resetting you will not have to do any of the promotion quests over again, nor would you have to pay to promote any companions that you may have purchased. Lucky Jack will remain at his current (3rd tier) status and you will just have to redistribute his talents and epic talents that you chose during leveling and promoting him. Any default talents/epic talents can't be reset.

On a side note. Lucky Jack is quickly becoming one of my new favorites for my buccaneer. He is one of the most pirate-y looking companions in the game and a dog is a pirate's best friend. If only he was giving an extra power or two, he probably would be my regular first mate. I kind of overlooked him for a long time and while bringing many of my other companions to max level, I became pleasantly surprised by his effectiveness in battle and his "doggone" cool pirate looks (love the hat). One of my favorites for sure.

Thankfully no. If you reset him, he will stay at third tier with the all talents and epics points he accumulated so far.

Um, you can use money to reset all his talents and epics. Crowns if you are a crowns player, or coins if you are a member. I had that same problem with Milo. Now he has relentless2, cheap shot, and blade storm. Before he had the first two, and vengeance strike, not considering that he was a swashbuckler.

When you reset a companion, you repick epics and talents over. you don't do the quest again.

Only his Epic Abilities (excluding powers not chosen by you) and Talents will reset. Yes, he will keep the promotions.

It will stay in third tier.

Resetting a companion only gets rid of epic and talents that it trained

If you reset him, you will not have to do his promotion quests again and he will still be at the third tier. All resetting does is allow you to choose different Epics and Talents for that Companion.

When your reset companions they stay the same level, they also stay in the tier they were, before you reset them.

He'll remain rank 3, no promotion quest will be needed.
