Bastian Hallix Companion Healer Build
The MENDING FLAME Build is an easy Healing Set Up for Bastian Hallix, one of the new Companions available to ESO players starting in the Blackwood Chapter. This build uses multiple Restoration Staff skills in combination with Bastian’s own burst heal, Kindle, as well as additional support from Guild Skills to create a powerful Healing Companion.
Companion Gear pieces are Rarely Dropped from enemies in ESO, with a greater drop chance from bosses in Overland Zones, Dungeons and Trials. Companion Gear will only drop for you if your Companion is summoned. Companion Gear is also tradable and can be sold by other players. Merchants in major cities also sell basic Companion Gear, but without any traits.

Gear Set Up
Quickened - Reduces Companion Ability Cooldowns per piece equipped.
These traits will also be beneficial for this build.
Soothing - Increases Companion Healing Done per piece equipped.
Augmented - Increases duration of all Companion Buffs and Debuffs per piece equipped.
Companion Skill Bar
Companions utilize a “Priority and Cooldown” system for combat. This works by giving every companion ability a cooldown of several seconds. Companions then can cast each ability as it comes off cooldown according to the skill order assigned on the companion skill bar. The Companion will attempt to cast each skill in order from the first ability to the last, then reset once all the cooldowns have expired.
6 ULT. Unleashed Rage
The skills below may also be helpful in other situations.
||Increases Max Health by 3% and Damage Done by 3%.|
||Increases healing done by 1% for each piece of Light Armor equipped. Current bonus: 7%. Increases damage done by .5% for each piece of Light Armor equipped. Current bonus: 3.5%.|
The Mending Flame build is focused around providing as many heals as possible to you and your group. One way this is done is by stacking heal over times. Bastian is also using Mending Incantation on this build which has a fairly small radius, so positioning with Bastian will be extremely important to get the most benefit.
Bastian is not invulnerable to damage, so if possible, it helps to slot a group heal to keep her health from decreasing too low. A good option for this would be Echoing Vigor if you play a Stamina Build or any class heal if you play a Magicka Build.
