Mirri Elendis Companion Guide

by Hack The Minotaur

Beginning with the Blackwood Chapter in 2021, The Elder Scrolls Online is introducing Companions to the game! Two Companions will be available to start: Mirri Elendis, a female Dark Elf and Bastian Hallix, a male Imperial.


Mirri Elendis Background Story

Mirri comes from a minor Dark Elf family that has a somewhat checkered reputation for recovering ancient relics, especially items tied to Daedra and the Daedric Princes. Her father was a former Hlaalu merchant who wasn’t above trading some of the antiquities they acquired for gold or favors, while her mother was more of a procurer of said curiosities, delving into ruins with audacity and aplomb.

Mirri is competent and hard-working, but she’s in no way easy to deal with. She despises authority figures and constantly skirts along the edge of trouble with the local law. She bends the rules nearly to the breaking point, but she gets things done. When she doesn’t get her way, her mood turns darker than the bottom of Malacath’s black boot. And the only thing fouler than her mood is her mouth—she curses like a Sea Elf pirate!

Mirri could be a useful companion in your journeys, as you never know when you’ll need the expertise of a “Daedra Consultant” during your Gates of Oblivion adventures. Just try to avoid souring her mood—lest you find yourself overwhelmed with inventive new expletives!

How To Unlock Mirri In The ESO Blackwood Chapter

You can unlock Mirri by purchasing the Blackwood Chapter for ESO and then completing her Introduction Quest in the Blackwood zone. Mirri’s starting quest, “Scattered And Shattered,” is found at the Northern edge of Blackwood at Doomvault Vulpinaz.

Companion Gear and Equipment

Each Companion is a fully customizable combat NPC. This means that you can build your Companion into a specific Combat Role such as Tank, Healer, DPS or a hybrid. One of the main ways to customize your Companion is through Companion Gear.

Companions in ESO currently cannot use the same sets as Players. Instead, they have Companion Gear. Companion Gear is fairly basic, only offering static a static Armor Bonus for armor pieces or a static Damage Stat for Weapons.

The 9 Companion Gear Traits are:

Aggressive Increases Companion Damage Done per piece equipped.
Augmented Increases duration of all Companion Buffs and Debuffs per piece equipped.
Bolstered Reduces Companion Damage Taken per piece equipped.

Prolific Increases Companion Ultimate Generation per piece equipped.
