Ember Build Guide – ESO Companion Guide

Ember Build Guide

Companions are special NPC that assist players in combat in The Elder Scrolls Online. Ember is a Sorcerer-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.

Ember can be a decent DPS Companion that will help you clear Overland content and Public Dungeons with ease. She is more potent as a Magicka DPS and Healer but can support you with every weapon. She can also fulfill the role of Tank well.

You can find Ember near the Tor Draioch point of interest, North of Gonfalon Bay, High Isle’s Capital. To unlock her as a companion, complete her quest “Tower Full of Trouble” near the area.

Her unique skills focus on Shock damage, protection and heals. You can find more info on Ember Skills here. Her perk “Ember’s Intuition” has a chance to provide extra loot when pickpocketing!
