ESO Companion

A Companion in ESO is a useful NPC, that can follow you around and assist in combat! Companions were first introduced to ESO with the Blackwood Chapter and offer an alternative way of adventuring in Tamriel. Ever since every new Chapter adds two Companions to the game. Getting a Companion is rather easy but you will have to own the Chapter that introduces them to ESO!

How to Summon A Companion in ESO

You can summon your companions any time from the Allies tab in the Collection menu. You can also assign them any role you wish in order to complement your play-style, by choosing the right skills and armor.

Companions cannot follow you in Arenas and PVP zones though. When participating in group content, companions will count as players and occupy a player slot. This can be helpful for a group unable to find enough players to complete a Dungeon or a Trial.

Companions however cannot replace players in terms of efficiency and DPS, so it is better to use them for easier PVE content. Each Companion excels in a different role. If you wish to learn which Companion is the best for every role, you can read my ESO Best Companion Guide.
