Any hints about the companions so far? What do you wish for?

I just read 2 new companions coming in q4 2024. Were there any hints about races/gender/classes?

So far i think we are just missing:

Classes: necromancer
Races: Nord, Orc, Bosmer

What do you wish for?

I want a huge male nord warrior, looking like typical skyrim warrior. Class doesnt matter.

    We're also missing an altmer companion, and that's the one I'm hoping for. My preference personality wise would be someone mature at the very least. I won't be picky otherwise.

    I have little to no use for a necromancer though.

      I hope we get a Werewolf Companion in the near future. That would fulfill a particular roleplay fantasy that not even TES V: Skyrim could.

      However, I'm not expecting a Vampire Companion or a Werewolf Companion this year. I would expect the first Necromancer Companion this year, though.

      I would wish for the same Nord fellow, and a mature Altmer woman as the 2nd companion. Someone like Vastarie maybe. One of them needs to be a necromancer, so either the Nord has bone tyrant abilities to enhance his tanking potential, or the elf uses necro magic for damage and healing. In the latter case, the Nord should be a werewolf. They should both be rather serious and not childish like Ember or memey like Sharps. I like Sharps, but his constant use of gamer lingo is hardly immersive. It would be nice if their stories subverted the usual expectations one has for these kind of characters.

      Female Nord werewolf companion à la Thoreki.

      Or, a fully customizable companion so you can make your own, using any class or gender, and having access to all skills/skill lines in the game (base skills dependent on class, just like our characters) as well as any options available in the Character Creator.

        It’s a bit annoying that the four races I was looking out for were left to the end. And then they delayed them to a pvp fix patch? I really hope they don’t become “pvp only” companions.

        i hope we get a bosmer companion at least and it makes sense for the region.

        the other one could be any of the races we're still missing so nord, orsimer, altmer.

        i think besides a necromancer we will likely get a companion that uses scribed skills instead of class skills. it would make it easier to make companions unique as well.

        and i think the 2 companions being a part of update 44 with a pvp feature just means that those are two big things we get in update 44.
        not that they are connected.

        he already exists as an npc with a quest so i doubt that would happen sadly.

        Yes. I'd like a male Altmer, preferably no necromancer (although mostly because I fear ZOS would make him a ridiculous "Haha, I'm so evil, dark and edgy!" cliché), age I don't care for, but most important, no living meme, not childish, no stupid stereotype.

        Btw, there's still no researcher or scholar of some kind who is not totally quirky like Azandar or (a bit) thievish like Mirri (although I like both of them, in fact, they're my favorite companions). Yes, that's possible without being boring. But yes, I can also understand if ZOS wants to go for something else first, and I'm fine with that - but then it should better be something more creative than just a 3rd knightly type (not sure if it's just me, but I don't see that much of a difference between Isobel and Bastian).

        I’m hoping for a necromancer. If I had to take a guess I’ll put my money on a necromancer Bosmer just based on how the other companions are. A high-elf necromancer would be too on the nose for the devs. I just want a necromancer who is not a goodie too-shoes. I want a dark brooding necromancer to run with.

        A werewolf or vampire companion would be what I would eventually like to see.

        we got an argonian companion who was previously enslaved and a khajiit companion whose sibling we free from slavery.
        two races most often enslaved by dunmer.

        if that's not too on the nose i definitely don't think an altmer necromancer would be too on the nose for zos.

        Yeah, I found that awfully cliché, too. As if a different background story for Khajiit and Argonians couldn't exist! I could understand if they make one such character, but that would be enough. There were so many other interesting stories to tell, including the interesting background lore we have for Argonian and Khajiit culture. But no, obviously the only identity a Khajiit or Argonian can have is "former slave".

        Customizable companions would be my first preference but if they have to be premade, there's a few companions I would like to have:

        Female orc necromancer
        Male altmer preferably sorceror or arcanist
        Nord werewolf (like the Companions)
        Reachman/woman (breton) Necromancer

        We're probably not going to get any of these, so I hope for whatever companions they've made the backstories and interactions are good. Ultimately that is the most important after all.

        I hope we can start unlocking companions one single time and not once per character. It’s one of the most off putting grinds in my experience to unlock a new companion on all 14 characters (and some people have more than that!)

        Also…are these going to be free for the base game since there’s no true dlc for Q4? That would be awesome since it’d be the first time companions didn’t come bundled with a chapter.

        Re the Werewolf/Vampire aspect: do people want a companion to be the same as their character or different? I.e would the ability to bite your companion and turn them be enough, or would it require something else, so they can be one when you're not?

        A "turn your companion" mechanism could apply to the six existing ones.

        A "turn your companion" mechanism could apply to the six existing ones.

        I don't think we'll be allowed to bite our Companions. Some of them would reject it (Ember hates werewolves, Isobel hates all Daedra, etcetera) and it would conflict with their character. Would we have to speak to the priest to cure our Companions? Do players even know where to go for that, and what happens when other players (including group mates) bite our Companions in our stead?

        No, I'd rather see Companions who were cursed with lycanthropy/vampirism by the time we meet them, and don't get cured by the end of their entire Companion quest line. Having their curse as a background can give them a more compelling story — you could imagine how a Templar Dunmer feels about having contracted Vampirism, or how a Dragonknight Orc uses his Lycanthropy to aid in his ferocious martial fighting style.

        I do expect we will see Classes and Races being reused eventually. If the Scribing system is ever given to Companions, then it'd just be adding new skills to their existing skill lines.

        instead of asking "how you feel about us" and "tell me about yourself"

        We can pet the wolf or ask the wolf to howl for us.

        If a normal companion? A vampire nord and a necromancer high elf female.

        I want to be able to assign an alternate character to be my companion (then the game controls it via its AI). I've always thought it would be nice to see more than 1 of our characters in the same game instance.

        So far we don't have:
        - Orc
        - Nord
        - High Elf
        - Wood Elf

        The only class that is missing is Necromancer. So if we are gonna get 2 companions, one for sure will be Necromancer and the other will be either Werewolf or Vampire, or maybe something else - like a showcase for new class in a form of a Companion, or maybe "a Wizard" archetype Companion that will use Scribing / Grimoires as main skills.

        As much as I would like to see a Werewolf companion, it will be for 99% a Vampire.... cuz Vampires are more popular. That is the sad truth.

        So, in order not to be disappointed, I expect:
        - High Elf Necromancer dude
        - Orc Vampire lady
        ... cuz we can not have nice things.
