Ember, The New ESO Companion, And How To Get Her

ESO Companion Introductory Quest Ember
Add a little variety to your list of companions in ESO with the new charismatic Khajiit Ember when the High Isle chapter releases in June.

High Isle Brings New Traveling Companions

Coming in June, with the newest chapter release from ESO entitled High Isle, we will see TWO new traveling companions.  Joining our allies list will be Isobel and Ember.  Each will bring a new story, new achievements, and a new style of gameplay.

Introducing Ember

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.  

Please note that this same quest must be completed on all your characters in order to summon Ember as a companion.  

Ember’s Backstory

Ember is a gifted mage full of energy with a pure and eager heart.  She was working for a merchant caravan when she was found by Magister Irin who immediately offered her proper training services.  

Ember is nomadic and filled with potential despite her lack of desire for formal training.  She is very energetic and likes to learn by doing with infectious enthusiasm.  Magister Irin cautions that ‘trouble seem to follow Ember’.  

Ember’s Companion Skills

Ember is a Khajiit with a sorcerer-based skill set.  Here’s a brief look at her skills and passives.

Leveling Companions

All companions have the abilities and skill lines that can be leveled.  A more detailed companion guide is in progress and in the meantime, you can level your companion by using them!  Ember, or any other companion, has to be active in combat to increase their levels.  Quest and building rapport are the only exceptions.  Companions level at the rate of 15% of the experience players gain from combat only.  Companions level to the max of 20.

Companions can be used as an extra member of your group or questing party but cannot be summoned nor used in PVP areas.  You cannot be in combat to summon a companion.
