The Elder Scrolls Online currently features six Companions. Mirri and Bastian can join players who own the Blackwood Chapter, and Ember and Isobel can join players who own the High Isle Chapter. Finally, two new Companions, Azandar and Sharp-as-Night can join players that own the Necrom Chapter.
In this companion guide, we will review Mirri Elendis, the female Dark Elf Companion available with the Blackwood Chapter. Mirri’s combat abilities are similar to the Nightblade Class.
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!

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 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 use Companion Gear. 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:
- 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.
- Focused – Increases Companion Critical Strike Rating per piece equipped.
- Prolific – Increases Companion Ultimate Generation per piece equipped.
- Quickened – Reduces Companion Ability Cooldowns per piece equipped.
- Shattering – Increases Companion Penetration per piece equipped.
- Soothing – Increases Companion Healing Done per piece equipped.
- Vigorous – Increases Companion Maximum Health per piece equipped.
