Which Race do you most want to see given to the 7th or 8th Companion in 2024?

Knowing that we are getting two Companions in Q4 2024, which Race would you most want to see given to at least one of them? Similar to my other poll about the potential Classes which might be given to these two Companions, this poll is purely for speculation and fun. Hopefully this poll will be just as insightful as the last one!

    Non-humanoid races would have the problem of not being able to use a mount, even if skill usage is worked out. I would like to see non-playable races, but only after the full ten playable ones are in use.

    Bosmer and orc.

    I'd also like to see a proper imperial at some point, but later. As much as I like Bastian, he's not very imperial. He's breton in everything except nose and cheekbones. So we technically have 2 bretons.

      Wow we never had orc or nord? That's a bit surprising. I think Orsinium and Greymoor was released before companions. That place between skyrim and wrothgar has some potential for a story just to bring in companions.

      I would take any of the above, but in order of races I wish to have;

      1) Bosmer

      2) Tie: Altmer and Nord

      3) Orc

      Again, I have to say it was kind of annoying that the four races I was kind of waiting on are coming last. (At least I hope they will all come in the next 2 chapters.)

      My preference would be (in descending order)
      Female Altmer
      Male Ork
      Male or female Bosmer
      Male or female non-playable race or creature
      Male Nord

      Altmer are currently the race most under-represented among allies and houseguests, so I'm hoping one will become a companion to remedy that. Honestly any of these would do as long as they're not one-note characters.

      My wishlist for ESO
      I.Skills:
      >>weapons: Polearms, Unarmed, Crossbow

      >>Sorc's Twilight - perched animation

      >>a skill line - a guild having this - to enable us to increase % gold gain for donating Ornate gear (another gold sink in order to gain more pennies - but over time it would pay off)

      II.Overland Mechanics
      >>tree climing in Grahtwood / Malabal Tor / Greenshade, etc. (with tall trees)

      >>rock climbing in Glenumbra / Rivenspire / Stonefalls, etc. (with tall peaks)

      >>new skill lines - Adventure (enable climbing, increase flora and fauna harvesting chances)

      III.CP 2.0
      >>Craft Tree development --> https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/594079/idea-craft-cp-sub-tree-ideas-constant-wip#latest

      III.Replayable content in overland
      >>dynamic pocket rifts to Oblivion - eg. to Vaermina's in Stormhaven, Boethiah's in Deshaan, Hircine's in the Rift OR in Bankgorai, etc. to get Daedric Sets relevant to the Prince, something like Oblivion rifts in Blackwood / the Deadlands

      IV.Geography
      >>Pyandonea - we had some quests WITH Maormer (Summerset, High Isle) - maybe we could meet them there? Poke poke, nudge nudge, wink wink, eh ZOS?

      >>Norg-Tzel - for Mara's sake, ZOS, REMOVE it from the list please!

      V.Other
      (the ideas are also inspired by other Forum Users' posts)
      >>pet battles! We collect SO MANY pets, and yet there are just a cosmetic. What a HUGE potential lies within those tiny beats!

      >>ASOC - a new server in Asia and Oceania. If people have a bad ping there, it would be great if they had a server reaching their places more easily. And hey, it would make THREE servers, not two.

      >>highlighting WBs that are being fought

      >>possibility to dye barding

      >>possibility to switch UI between guild bank<-->bank<-->guild trader

      >>display the dialogue options so that we can see which answer the NPC is reacting to

      >>a way to make Overland more challenging - for those who want

      Maormer, and then we have a hook for Pyandonea! 😃

      An Alfiq would be cool, but I agree they’d have more work to do there for combat and such. Maybe if they skipped the mount and just had them run along side, I think Ezabi and Fezez do that presently? (Can’t check right now.) Although having them hop up behind you on your horse would be cute.

      though if non playable race i hope maormer happens.

      i wonder where the companions will be as they release in update 44 instead of 42.

      if they're still in the chapter zone anyway, as infinite Archive also got put in Apocrypha of Necrom chapter, then i think bosmer will likely happen at least.

      i hope the first bosmer companion is a lady.

      I agree with this sentiment. I personally want more and more Companions, but I know not everyone does. That's why I made poll options for things that I know people have expressed interest in previously, even if I personally don't want to see some of those in the game.

      Ultimately, it's up to ZOS what they do with existing systems — at the very least, we can give ZOS some information (i.e., poll statistics) to give them some insight into how the community on the forums feels/thinks/wants of these systems.
