Companions - Your first impression on our new friends

So, I started showing Basti the world and I think he finds it exciting.


Have you already started your adventure, what is your first impression?
  • tohopka_eso
    So, reading the patch notes. Rapport sounds like influence from SW:Tor with the companion there. Higher you get it the more they like you and give quests. Am I correct?

    Bastian looks like Mario
  • Altaire
    Do companions get in you way like combat pets?
  • xv1_me
    I like the idea. Still working out the kinks but it’s something new for us so that is good.

    My companion stands in red but I guess that’s par for the course in eso :)

    Definitely they do

    Can white jewelry for companions be bought or is jewelry drop only?
  • Vhale
    Do quest NPCs react to companions? IE dialog changes?
    I really hate pets getting under my cursor, so unless there's furnishing rewards I am not compelled to use them. I wouldn't mind a pocket healer for some DLC WBs. But if they get offended by petty larceny we are parting ways forever.

    First impression,

    Bastion is the easier quest,
    Both are good quests and didn't take too long,
    I have not found any companion gear, but I need to play more though. On a break currently right now.

    Lack of head armor is a serious immersion flaw with no valid reasoning considering they have names and bodies and stuff

    An unforgettable moment today right in the first 2 minutes in front of Leyawiin - I wanted to go on my way to do Bastian's quests and who do I see with someone else right next to me? Basti in all its grandeur!

    The more Rapport you have, then you can have them as a House Guest.

    IDK if there are other reasons, but that seems to be the big one.

    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    In game pad mode murri was always in the way when I was trying to jump on or over things. Press a to jump talk to murri instead. Very annoying.

    Given I've run public dungeons and dolmens, I haven't had either companion die AT ALL. Perhaps public dungeons aren't considered difficult content, but in either case, they didn't die... so I'm quite pleased with them. However, I would seriously like ZOS to change their threat level, they should not be pulling enemies from me when I'm hitting with tons of damage and they are not.

    Mirri is a perfect party as far as I farm resources almost every day. She really likes that I harvest nodes. Also when I did the antiquitie digging our rapport had grown up. She is nice but sadly I saw bunch of her copies at dolmens.

    ZOS, I'm seriously asking: give us an option to cover their heads and/or change their hairstyles!

    They both have a thing for resource nodes.

    And yes, it is a bit disconcerting to see the companions everywhere.

    I start new content with fishing so the players that want to speed through everything will have thinned out some as I try to take my time through content. Mirri likes to try and stand so I talk to her instead of cast a line. Usually taking two steps to the left helps.
    Sometimes purple is just a color.

    I don't have much to go off other than pictures but neither of them really appeal to me. I hope they add more companions in the future, I really want a mage or scholar companion.
