The Elder Scrolls Online : Blackwood brought more than the Gates of Oblivion to the sprawling MMO; now, specific NPCs can join the player's adventure through the new companion system. At launch, there are two Companions, Bastian Hallix and Mirri Elendis. In this guide, we will be discussing how to get the red headed imperial battlemage as a faithful stalwart.


For the uninitiated, the companion system allows players to recruit certain non-playable characters to aid them on their journey through Tamriel. These characters can be leveled and customized, both in terms of appearance and abilities. An extensive progression system will cover everything from transforming their skills to report-related quests. The system will allow solo players to supplement their abilities with an extra hand and help form smaller teams to take on group dungeons.


With that preview out of the way, let's discuss how to add Bastian to your roster.

How to get Bastian Hallix

Bastian Hallix is, for the moment, exclusively tied to the Blackwood chapter, which means that the last expansion must belong to the acquisition of Companion. If you own Blackwood, head to the southwest coast of Blackwood. The target location is Deepscorn Hollow. This area is southeast of Leyawiin, near the Blue Blood Shrine.

Bastian can be found sitting on the ground, tied up. Speak with him to start the “Competition and Contracts” quest. Track and complete the associated objectives to receive Bastian Hallix as a companion.


To set the battlemage as your companion of choice, go to Collections > Allies > Companions, then select Activate. Remember that only one companion can be active at a time. Select the NPC that best compliments your playstyle (or personality).


Now you can venture out with extra support and put an end to Mehrunes Dagon's nefarious plans.


The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood is now available on PC and Stadia. The new chapter will launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on June 8.
