ok so really buccaneer gets like what 1 companion side quest not included I mean and then like musketeer gets like over 5 companions! how unfair is that to buccaneers like me? max blackfinch level 52
Not all that unfair, to be honest. Also, check your sources. Musketeers, just like buccaneers, get four companions in MooShu, two of them being from the main storyline. I don't really see what's unfair here.
The Mooshu companions available for everyone are Monkey King ( from the main quest) and Shiruku Nekko the ninja cat ( from the side quest 'The Silk One' ) get a Yakooza, get an inoshishi necromancer and a samoorai from the ravaged valley (?) , get a Helephant, get Taro Moomori and get a samoorai archer.
Some of these are from side quests, some from the main quest line.
