Isobel Build Guide – ESO Companion Guide

Isobel Build Guide

Companions are special NPC that assist players in combat in The Elder Scrolls Online. Isobel Veloise is a Templar-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.

Isobel Builds

Isobel Veloise can be a decent DPS Companion that will help you clear Overland content and Public Dungeons with ease. She is more potent as a Tank and Healer but can support you in every role.

You can find Isobel near the Castle Navire point of interest, West of Gonfalon Bay, High Isle’s Capital. To unlock her as a companion, complete her quest “Tournament of the Heart” near the area.

Her unique skills focus on Tanking, Healing and melee combat. You can find more info on Isobel Skills here. Her perk “Isobel’s Grace” has a chance to provide extra loot when defeating Overworld Bosses!
