ESO Companions: Mirri Build Guide

Companions are special NPC that can assist you in combat in The Elder Scrolls Online. Mirri Elendis is a Nightblade-like companion that can fulfill every role in the game, from DPS to Tank and Healer. In this guide, ArzyeL Gaming shows you the different ways to set up Mirri to help you complete PvE content.

 

 

Companions are decent in easier content. They can be used as an extra damage source, and you can also use them to draw enemy attention. They are quite helpful to new players but not good enough to bring in harder encounters. Overall, Mirri is a good Magicka DPS and Healer Companion but poor in Tank and Stamina DPS roles. 

 

Magicka DPS (Destruction Staff)

 

Gear Setup

All of your Armor can be Light with two Quickened pieces for better skill cooldown and everything else Aggressive for better damage. You can experiment with a different Quickened/Aggressive ratio if you wish. You can farm gear for your companions, but you can also buy companion gear from other players with your gold. If you need some easy gold, you can buy it from a reliable MMO gold seller, allowing you to get lots of ESO gold quickly.
