    Bastian, then Mirri. I only use companions if I'm soloing a world boss. Bastian if I need a tank, Mirri if I need DPS.

    I have all of them, but the two OGs are my go-to

    It's actually a tie between Bastian and Sharp-as-Night right now. Bastian has long been my fave, and that hasn't changed, but Sharp is some kind of great and I love having him around as well. Too bad we can't run multiple companions at a time, because I'd travel everywhere with those two.

    As for why, I like their personalities and feel like each, in their own way, is a good best friend for my main character. Plus, Bastian's healing keeps my character alive in the tough fights, and Sharp's dps makes enemies melt faster.

    Mirrii
    Mirri is definitely my favorite- I love her snarky wit, and she's been a part of the motley little crew of characters on my account so long that she feels like an old friend. She's worked her way into the stories I write about my characters, so much so that she's almost always the first companion I go and grab when I make a new one. She's one of the connecting elements between the characters on my account. No matter what walk of life they come from, they tend to relate to her in some way.

    Sharp, however, is swiftly becoming my second favorite, for similar reasons- he has a wit to match that of the little scoundrels that have a home on my account. That and he loves my favorite activity, fishing :3

    Isobel is also much favored by me though- she's sweet, and from an RP standpoint, she's one of my Templar's best friends because she has a lot in common with him. Her enthusiasm tends to remind him, in his darker moments, that his own ideals aren't dead and that honor still exists in the world.

    I mainly use Sharp-as-Night and Isobel Veloise. I like Sharp's personality and he makes for a really capable healer, while Isobel is a cool knight who also makes for a great tank.

    Though, neither of them would necessarily approve of my character being a werewolf. Sharp-as-Night says that he wouldn't look to Daedric Princes for power, while Isobel has outright admitted to killing werewolves before and openly expresses how much she hates Daedra.

    Sharp wouldn't really care about it. Maybe He'd worry a bit about you and that's it.

    Funny is using companions with a necromancer character.

    I use them all, almost equally. With 20 characters each companion is used by 4 each, with Bastian as my tank to pull out when I need his services. However in terms who has the best abilities it would be Azandar while personality it's Ember.

    Bastian, the one and only. No rational reasons to explain it. He was the first I got. We did match well as a team in combat and I somehow like his face expression, of the type "I may look a bit naive, but you can rely on me".

    After him, I picked two more companions, but that was no match, so I let them aside and didn't bother collecting more.

    Now to put my comment in perspective: I very rarely use companions. I have no need for the game content I do. So of course in my case, ability in combat and such are no valid criteria. Though, I tend to believe that even if I would have to use a different companion for combat, I would still prefer tonton Bastian... :D

    because I can not have Almalexia or Naryu it seems.

    Can you at least let me have Almalexia's bikini armor?

    I will let Mirri wear it and worship her instead.

    Bastian and Mirri, I don't even bother with the getting the others.

    I hate the way Ember looks because of her hair, don't like Azandar's personality (and class) and Sharp is argonian and therefore not worthy of being a companion for any of my characters. That leaves Isobel as my third option, but I don't have characters that would mesh well with her.

      It used to be Ember for every character but Sharp has completely won me over. I love his calm composure, dislike of people and his comments are priceless. Now they are all levelled, my Khajiits will probably keep Ember but everyone else will travel with Sharp.

      From a "actually benefits my playstyle" point of view, Isobel and Azandar.
      From a "I would not strangle them after 5min unmuted" point of view, Isobel and Sharp-as-Night.
      So, voted Isobel.

      Also he doesn't mind a little bit of larceny here, a little bit of murdery there and likes mushrooms.

      Every time Azandar turned his nose up Violet Coprinus harvesting made my blood boil; do you know how much these go for on traders and how many we consume to finance our lifestyle pardner?

      Sharp is the most relatable one, so it's the one I'd probably get along best. But Ember is a Khajiit and I must choose her.

      Bastian. As a character, he's a nice person. He's also done a good job tanking for me. And tanking makes him my useful by far.

      I also really like Sharp as Night and Azandar. They have both pulled way ahead of Isobel, Ember, and Mirri for me. They are my fave DPS and healer respectively.

      Isobel
      Isobel and Bastian have my favorite personalities. I think I like Bastian's a bit more but I like Isobel's overall look and spells more. She also feels more alive but I think that's because of the release date difference sadly.

      Also (I play with the german localization) both Bastian and Mirri's audio line qualities sound weird compared to the others'. Their lines sound noticeably more grating as if the mics used were lower quality. If the 2021 content was made during 2020 with all the covid stuff, it's probably related.

      I like everyone else quite a bit too except for Ember. She is so annoying to me, I'm sorry. But I know she's popular so I'm glad other people like her

      Isobel is my favourite, because:

      -The simplicity behind leveling her rapport as fast and costless as possible.
      -Unlike Mirri and Bastian, when you kill an enemy npc with the BoW, she doesn't react negatively.
      -She loves sweets, and so do i.

      The One I use the most in fights is Bastian, since I heavy attack and he has a unique buffing skill for that.

      Isobel is my favorite companion and usually I take her out just to keep me company, or when I don't want to tank so I let her fill the role. Love her.

      I feel Sharp is "like me" so he gains points.

      I have nothing against Ember, Mirri or Azandar, I appreciate them all, just a bit less.

      Also, Ember is the perfect houseguest - the one who is always happy to see you come home. Cute.

      i have mirri set up as a dps, but ember is just a bit better

      i have sharp and azander set up as a tank and healer respectively, but i havent really used them much enough to have a build set up for them because i only have them unlocked on 3 of my 11 characters
