I know you can get a companion in Star Wars: The Old Republic, but when do you get said companion?

This varies from class to class, but you should get your first companion as part of the storyline missions in your beginner zone. You'll be in the range of level 5-10.

I'll be honest, but I suspected that having played through two classes starting areas... but it's an extremely common question in chat, so I decided to ask it anyway. – user2974 Dec 17 '11 at 1:00
    
@Powerlord I figured it just had something to do with hats – sjohnston Dec 17 '11 at 1:02
    
That's a secret to everyone (see the SWTOR hat requirement) – user2974 Dec 17 '11 at 1:03
    
Oh, and accepting this answer gave me one, too. Plus, I'm building up lots of comments! – user2974 Dec 17 '11 at 1:05
    
@Powerlord Not me. I would never let such silly incentives affect my behavior. – sjohnston Dec 17 '11 at 1:07

You first have to complete most of your class quest. You are most likely to get it between 7-9. If you see other people with companions at 5 or 6 that means they didn't do any other quest really. Hopes this helps guys!
