ESO Bastian Build Guide | Companions Build Guide

ESO Bastian Build

Companions are special NPC that assist players in combat in The Elder Scrolls Online. Bastian Hallix is a Dragonknight-like Companion that can fulfill any role in the game, from DPS to Tank and Healer.

The primary role of Companions is to help players complete content faster. They are especially helpful to new players and can assist when dealing with easy or medium difficulty enemies. They are not however the best for harder content and they cannot efficiently replace other players.

If you want to learn more about Companions, you can take a look at my ESO Companions System Guide.

Bastian Builds

Bastian can be a decent DPS Companion that will help you clear Overland content and Public Dungeons with ease. He is more potent as a Magicka DPS but can support you with every weapon. As a tank he can draw attention and allow you to deal with stronger enemies faster.

But he really shines as a support/Healer hybrid, making it easier to survive harder content and farm Overworld Bosses. You can find more info on Bastian Skills here.
