Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim

Good help isn't easy to find, even in Skyrim. That's why we put together a Skyrim Companions Guide. But you might be thinking, "who are companions for?" While walking from town to town don't you wish you had someone to talk to? Are you lonely? Have you become accustomed to naming your weapons in a desperate and pathetic attempt at friendship? If you answered "yes" to these questions then I think it's time you considered a companion. 

Companions, also known as Followers, travel with you across Skyrim. They will follow you into battle regardless of the circumstances. At any given time, you can have one human (or Skyrim equivalent) and one animal (dog). 

Here are some of the perks of having a companion:

  • Companions will aid you in battle. 
  • Companions can't die, unless you kill them.
  • If you can't carry any more items, you can force them to carry your loot, like mules!
  • Companions listen to your needs, wants, and most importantly, commands. 

Now that you're ready to become "a pair" here is a list of your potential new best friends.
