Here you will find a list of all companions in Pathfinder: Kingmaker, their locations, special features, romances as well as tips on skills and equipment.
In this article we answer the following questions:
- Which companions exist and where do I find them?
- What weapons and armor should they wear?
- How should I skill my companions?
- With which companions can I have a romance?
In Pathfinder: Kingmaker, our main character is supported by up to five companions. We select the group members from a total of eleven possible characters (twelve, if you own the DLC “Wildcards”). Let us tell you where you can find your companions.
Below we present each character in detail and give you tips for skills (please note that we have also listed talents that may already be available) and equipment. This is based on our experience (Act 3 at the moment), but we are far from finished with the game. We will update skills and equipment on a regular basis. You can find a list of the best weapons and armor in Pathfinder: Kingmaker in a separate article. There you can also check out where to find the items we recommend.
- Hint & little spoiler: The companions who follow Tartuccio in the prologue will be available for us later. You will also find information about the respective companion quests in this article, as far as they are available to us and seem necessary. The quest hints are hidden behind a fold-out element to protect you from spoilers.
All companions in detail
How can I create my own companions and what are the advantages and disadvantages?
- You can buy individual companions from Anoriel Achtauge in Oleg’s Trading Post or later in the tavern located in the capital of the barony.
Anoriel Achtauge offers a service at Oleg’s Trading Post, or later at the tavern in the capital, that allows you to create individual companions. This can be especially helpful if you’re not completely satisfied with the eleven companions described above.
Creating a new companion allows you to build a perfect party member. However, this costs a lot of gold per companion (it scales with your level; at the beginning it is 2,000 gold, at level 10 already 50,000 gold). So, you should consider this very carefully. Another disadvantage of the retort heroes is that they come without a personality and don’t bring their own quest.
