    In The Elder Scrolls OnlineCompanions can assist you in combat. Bastian Hallix is a Dragonknight-like Companion that can fulfill every role in the game, from DPS to Tank and Healer. In this guide, ArzyeL Gaming shows you the different options you have and how to get the most out of this special NPC. 

      

      

    In general, Companions are helpful in easier content, and you can use them as an extra body to dish out damage or draw attention. Companions will be very helpful to new players, but they are not something you want to bring in harder content. Their role is to assist you but not defeat enemies for you.

     

    Overall, Bastian is weak as a DPS, and he is not great at Tanking either. However, he can be an asset in a support or Healer build. 

     

    Magicka DPS (Destruction Staff)


    Gear Setup

    Magicka DPS is the best DPS build for Bastian so far. You can use all light armor with two Quickened pieces for better skill cooldown and everything else Aggressive for better damage.

    Skill Setup

     

    Drake’s Blood is an excellent self-heal ability that also reduces incoming damage.

    Searing Weapons is a skill that buffs the light and heavy attack damage of you and Bastian.

    Destructive Blast deals good direct damage and knocks back enemies (Fire staff).

    Fiery Flail lashes enemies with a strong flame attack and sets enemies Off Balance.

    Scorching Strike is a direct and DoT damage skill.

    Unleashed Rage is Bastian’s Ultimate that deals severe Flame damage and stuns enemies.

      

    Companions can’t use the same armor sets as players, so you need to farm Companion gear in any Zone. The drop rate of Companion gear is super low at the moment, and it will be more difficult to a get gear piece with a good Trait and quality. The best and fastest way to get a decent armor piece for your Companions is to buy from Guild Trader using your ESO gold. However, Companion gear can be costly in the game, so if you don’t have enough gold, you can buy ESO gold on FarmGolds, the best place to buy safe and cheap ESO gold.

     

    Stamina DPS (Two-Handed)


    Gear Setup

    This build uses a good execute ability to finish low-health enemies. You can use all medium armor with two quickened pieces and the rest Aggressive.
