Choosing A Path Companion

Searching for truth behind the mysteries surrounding Eorzea.

Choosing a Path

Today Square Enix has announced on the Lodestone Path Companions, which are NPCs that are going to help you in your adventures in Eorzea.  Whether this is a companion that always sticks by your side or merely an NPC to help those solo adventurers with higher level storyline quests remains to be seen.  The descriptions of our choices are certainly interesting!  Find their guide below:

"At the onset of the fifth main scenario quest, players will be presented with the opportunity to select an NPC to join them in the search for truth behind the mysteries surrounding Eorzea. This NPC is known as a Path Companion., and players will be faced with several important decisions when selecting the one just right for them. After deciding on a class and nickname, players must also select the race and gender of their companion. The personality of NPC will vary greatly depending on which combination is chosen.

Midland Hyur Male
A fine if somewhat conventional companion, possessing a strong sense of justice, an indefatigable spirit and…so on.

Midland Hyur Female
A gregarious though slightly egocentric young woman. If you can put up with her, she won’t let you down.

Elezen Male
Being a man wholly focused on his mission, this highborn fellow can seem rather curt, if not downright rude.

Elezen Female
A studious sort with exemplary manners. Serious and trustworthy, as you’d expect, but possibly a little…stiff for some tastes. Still, if you loathe over-familiarity, she may be just the companion—sorry, colleague for you.

Lalafell Male
It is said that a hero lies within us all. In the case of this rather sheltered young Lalafell, one might assume that the hero in question does so under his bed, hoping his harpy of a mother won’t think to look for him there. Will you be the one to coax him out?

Lalafell Female
Does your world want for a wealth of wordplay and wit? An abundance of alliteration, assonance aplenty and a soupcon of sibilance to seal the deal? Well, you were warned.

Miqo’te Female
A lady who knows what she likes, and likes a little bit of everything. Don’t be fooled by her coquettish manner and all-too-apparent charms; in her breast beats the fiery heart of a warrior. Not to worry, though, she’ll be gentle—assuming that’s what you like.

Roegadyn Male
When the going gets tough, it’s often nice to have a big, earnest, slightly credulous friend around—and they don’t come much bigger than this straight-talking Roegadyn.

Highland Hyur Male
Women, wine, war and women. Just four—alright, three of the things which tickle the fancy of this brute of a man. He doesn’t so much stand on ceremony as stamp on it until it stops moving."

NPC companion sucked in FFXI, took forever to level it... If this is anything like that then why would they even bother with it??

SE needs to focus less on gimmicky stuff like "Path Companions" and more on stuff like the completely broken UI and the throng of bugs that plague the game currently! Priorities SE, priorities!! >_<

You do know that they do have a specific part of the team that handles the U/I and other parts that handle content right?

They already said they're working on the U/I. It's not going to be fixed over night. If you can't wait stop playing till the U/I is fixed.

I'm sorry, sparkytenks, are you implying that us paying customers aren't entitled to a quality, finished product?

All I can think of is Tony Stark and Pepper Pots as my main blueprint of what i want the relationship between my characters to be.

Nice thing!
