Like above whats Your expectations for the next companion ? You want dwarven warrior ? Orlan Rouge ?

We have alrady 5 companions there will be 8 ... what races, classes they should be .... share with us your ideas on these 3 companions


We have five? I thought they already said that the characters in the concept art weren't all necessarily companions, just that they were important to the story.

Regardless, I don't really care what class/race the companions are, just so long as there is enough of a cross section overall to help me get into the dynamics of the the cultures and races of the world, and enough variety mechanically that I can have distinct game play experiences on multiple playthroughs

I like to play ranged classes therefore I voted for tanks but I think overall, there should be balance.

Obviously I would like, over all, a well balanced selection, so that I will have an extensive use for all Companions on differing play-throughs. Nothing is more annoying than playing a Thief, only to discover there are 20 million and 5 Thief companions available to you and only 1 Healer or Wizard.

That being said, I would love to see some concept art of the Godlike, and I certainly hope we receive one as a companion.

Orlan Druid, Aumaua Chanter, and a Godlike Rogue (Courtisan).

As long as it's not another human, I'm fine, prefer to have as many different races as possible for the NPCs.

I think a Godling Barbarian would do quite nicely. We haven't had any Barbarian companions thus far and it would be great to see a Godling fully fleshed out.

Godlike, and Cipher or Chanter for me!

But ofc I'll be happy with anything they cook up, as long as it's creative and hopefully even challenging. Which I'm fairly certain it will be!

Personally I like my PC to be a glass cannon and/or support in D&D-style games, so while a more melee-style class might seem a more logical choice for me, we already have a Fighter, Monk, and Ranger confirmed as companions, and those are pretty physical/melee-y.

Also, since the devs informed us that they fully want to support those of us who wish to be, say, a wizard in full platemail or a caster who melees... well... yum!

those characters we know are all companions ? I thought the swordsman guy plays an important role for the story and companions are completely optional... so doesn't that somehow... interfere ? and why does the monk look like david carradine from kung-fu ? XD ...

aaaand back on topic. I'd like a cipher companion.

Edit: ...and I hope the dwarfen ranger will be a companion. she looks cool!

It doesn't look like there are any rogues in the current lineup, and I think that's a class that should be represented among the eight companions.

I wouldn't mind seeing a druid represented either - and that would be particularly the case if wizards aren't healers. I'm usually more of an "It's about the character!" person, but I do thik it's a good idea to have multiple representatives of major combat roles so that players who dislike or feel their character would disapprove of one healer have another option available beyond heading to the Adventurer's Hall.

I'm going to guess Godlike Rogue and Aumaua Barbarian, but I hope I am completely wrong.

I think the next companion we'll see is an Orlan cipher ;)

But maybe they'll release some unknown companion before the Orlan cipher? :w00t:

Well, we already got an Orlan.

I'm expecting a godlike, or of non-playable race companion. Non playable would be especially interesting.

Minsc invites himself to the party through awesomess, let's just say he needs new adventures :woot: but for real i would want a Ranger (no party is complete without one) especially godlike ranger.

I voted for Godlike Chanter. I would love nothing more than to see a Celestial/Godlike blow up an enemy's head with nothimg more than a divine word or sound.

Then again, perhaps a character like the mute girl in PST, but the difference being if she does talk, you die.
