Exploring War Like Worlds.

Guild Wars: New and old.

Posted on: September 1, 2009

Companions are a feature in Guild Wars 2. Companions will have customisability similar to the Heroes of the original Guild Wars game series. Players will be allowed to bring a single companion with them, who will not take up a party slot. When a player chooses not to bring a companion, their character will instead be buffed so that they will not be disadvantaged by not bringing a companion.

I was playing a mission in guild wars the other night and had a little party of 3 npcs with me. I really really like the npc system. Its fun to have them along and let the tank tank and save the healer.

It will be a bit sad in guild wars 2 that it sounds like your only allowed one npc along with you.

Gotta say, I don’t like the NPC system in Guild Wars very much. They’re just so dumb!

Anyhow, I think you’ve misunderstood it: “Players will be allowed to bring a single companion with them, who will NOT take up a PARTY SLOT.”

It sounds to me like there’s still something called Party slots and that, they – plural, can be filled – but that this companion doesn’t fill any. That’s just as I understands it.
