Ember Companion Healer Build For ESO

by Hack The Minotaur

The RESTORING WARD build is a strong option for Ember as a Healer Companion in The Elder Scrolls Online. Ember is one of two new Companions available to ESO players that purchase the High Isle Chapter. Ember’s skills are similar to that of the Sorcerer class, so she has some strong healing options and shields that make for a great Companion Healer!

Equipping Your Companion With Gear

Companion Gear pieces are rarely dropped from enemies in ESO, with a greater drop chance from bosses in Overland Zones, Dungeons and Trials. Keep in mind also that Companion Gear will only drop for you if your Companion is currently summoned - no companion, no drops!

Companion Gear is tradable and can be sold by other players so it is possible to find what you’re looking for from a variety of sources. Finally, some Merchants in major cities do also sell basic Companion Gear, but without any traits.

For more information on the best places to farm Companion Gear, make sure to check out the Companion Gear Guide linked below.

Companion Gear Traits and Quality

Companion Gear is basic equipment that offers a static Armor Bonus or Damage Stat plus Companion specific traits. These 9 unique Companion Gear Traits further customize your Companion’s combat role for tanking, healing or DPS.

The 9 Companion Gear Traits are:

Recommended Traits For Ember As A Companion Healer

When building Ember into a Healer Companion the most important things you can do is reduce her cooldowns timers, allowing her heals to be active nearly 100% of the time in combat. The recommended Companion Trait for this build to help in that regard will be Quickened. Below you will find a sample build template with optimized Companion Armor weights and traits. Keep in mind that this is just a template and you can mix and match pieces however you see fit or depending on which Armor pieces you have available. Each piece makes a small difference in the overall power of a Companion Build, but combined they can be quite powerful!

 

Ember Healer Build Equipment

Here are the Companion Gear pieces, weights and traits I recommend for Ember as a Healer.

Head Quickened Light
Shoulder Quickened Light
Chest Quickened Light
Waist Quickened Light
Gloves Quickened Light
Legs Quickened Light
Feet Quickened Light
Necklace Quickened NA
Ring 1 Quickened NA

As you can see, all the recommended armor pieces are Light weight as these have the best Companion Passives for increased healing. The Quickened Trait is recommended because this will reduce the cooldown of her abilities, though some Soothing Trait pieces can also be beneficial for even more healing power.

 

Ember Companion Healer 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. For more information on Companion Skills and Cooldowns, check out the Full Companion Guide.
