Neverwinter Free, For Sale and Zen Market Companions Guide


Like many other MMOs, Neverwinter also gives players the option to carry companions with them. Once you get to level 16, you will be able to choose your first companion. How you ask? You will receive a quest at level 16 and on its completion, you will be rewarded with a companion character.

Selection is important as your companion will play as partner, and it should suit your play-style. Although, you can also buy/trade these companions, the importance of freebies cannot be neglected because a companion will cost you a lot if you choose to buy or trade.

The companions sold by the merchant will have different price tags in the form of different currencies. Zen market, on the other hand, will trade with you in one currency.

Before moving on to various types of companions, let’s discuss the role and behavior of different pets serving you in the battlefield. These creatures follow you throughout your adventure and as a result gain experience and learn additional skills. You can also choose to train, which requires a particular duration.

Initially, the training will be of few seconds, but as the level increases the time duration will keep on piling up. While you pet is away for training, you won’t be able to use them. So, it’s wise to have at least to companions at a time so that if one is not available, you can make use of the other one.
