How To Add Ember To Your Allies

To add Ember you must first complete the introductory quest.  Cross the large bridge to the northeast of Gonfalon Bay towards the Tor Draioch Wayshrine.  In the area marked on this map, you’ll find a fellow swatting a strange green globe.  Speaking with him will begin the quest for Ember.

As with previous companions, once you complete their introductory quest, she will join your list of allies.
