Companions in The Elder Scrolls Online is a new system that is added with the Blackwood Chapter. Companions are special NPCs that can be recruited to join the player's adventure and who helps in combat. Companions usually have their own specialization, preferred equipment, skills, class, stats, strengths, weaknesses, and many more. This page covers a list of all the Companions featured in The Elder Scrolls Online as well as data regarding their stats and information on how to recruit them.

 

  • There are Two Companions available: Mirri Elendis and Bastian Hallix
  • Companions start at level 1 and they can level up by gaining experience with you through quests or combat.  You can also equip certain gear, or assign costumes/mounts for them. 
  • Companions have their own Companion Skills that you can slot, and can have different roles/sub-classes such as Deadly Assassin, Soul Thief and Living Shade. You can set their Combat Behavior to better suit your fighting style.
  • Companions have a full Dialog System. Continuous interaction with a companion will allow the player to unlock personal quests.
  • Speculation is that players can unlock two companions at the start by completing a certain main quest.

 

Rapport Level

 Companions will have a rapport level (from hate to love), depending on how much they like your character. Each companion also has its own series of likes and dislikes. The rapport level will change as a player progresses through the story to unlock new quests to get to know each companion. For example, certain companions may react negatively if your character steals from an NPC or they may react positively if you give to an NPC.
