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 doesn't have the limitations of regular phantoms, and they can be summoned on non-multiplayer areas (like the ones past the Giant Tower in the Undead Settlement or The Trial of Perseverance).

  • Companion stats scale depending on the game Location and New Game cycle.
  • The summon catalysts consume 500 FP on use and have unlimited uses.
  • Companions have no time limit.
  • They are affected by buffs (i.g. Sacred Oath, Lothric War Banner, etc.)
  • Using the summon catalyst again after a companion is already present will beckon them next to you and fully restore their HP.
  • If a companion dies, area reload is necessary to resurrect them.
