Companions is a game mechanic that allows to summon NPC as companions. Each companion has a summon catalyst required to summon them.

Summoning a companion requires to be in Lord of Cinder Mode like regular summons, but they can be summoned on non-multiplayer areas (like the ones past the Giant Tower in the Undead Settlement or The Trials).

These accesories boost the stats of companions while the player has them equipped.


  • Companion stats scale depending on the game Location and New Game cycle.
  • The summon catalysts consume a varying amount of FP on use depending on the companion selected and have unlimited uses.
  • They are affected by heal spells and buffs (i.g. Great Heal, Sacred Oath, Lothric War Banner, etc.)
  • If a companion dies, resting at a bonfire or area reload is necessary to resurrect them.
  • Equipping the Ritualist Pact will remove the Ember requirement to summon a companion, and also allows to summon multiple of them.
