I have 2 characters with my P101 account a Privateer and Swashbuckler. My Privateer is a level 44 and I have to say my pig necromancer is the best so far. However, I also love Bonnie Anne. She really is coming together, and her promotions make her even better. My Swashbuckler is a level 18 and I love Sarah Steele. Sarah hits at least close to a 100 each time, even at a level 16. Sarah Steele is by far the best companion on my Swashbuckler, then yet again, I still am 32 levels away from 50.
My favorite changes as I go. Bonnie Anne is ALWAYS my first mate. As a witchdoctor, my attacks are always ranged, so her and I can take a few health points off our foes as the approach. After Bonnie Anne, maybe Ratbeard. He is tough and after his 2nd promotion he can have quite an arsenal of bonus attacks. I also like my batacuda. It doesn't really do anything special, but since it flies, it can go anywhere in deckside combat (including fighting while inside the side of a ship) or fly over obstacles in ground based combat. Makes it pretty versatile.
So far, it's a draw between Ratbeard, Mormo and Bonnie Anne. They're great in battle; they're a major part of the storyline (they appear a lot in cutscenes) and I love their personalities. Mormo and Ratbeard are amusing, and Bonnie Anne can affect a lot of enemies in one turn.
I would have to say my favorite companion as a level 9 Privateer would be, well I like every companion. For now i would say my favorite would be tied between Bonnie Anne (fox sharpshooter), Lucky Jack Russel (dog pirate), or Nanu Nanu (water-mole spearman). These are the words of Cautious Joseph.
Ratbeard, Shifty Logan Ringo, Lefty, El Toro, and Kan Po. Ratbeard is just the best at battle and making a bunch of humorous remarks. Plus it's easy to tease him about his past mistakes and he is such a great Rat. Shifty Logan Ringo is just a good at battle since he has been helpful in many battles. Lefty is just a good companion and you should never miss a chance getting him if you're a witchdoctor. El Toro is the queen of fashion is there really much else to say? Kan Po is just so cute plus a great companion to keep. -------------------------------------------- Silent Scarlett Nightingale level 24 Witchdoctor
Froggo Villa for asthetics, he look is great, I just wish he had dialogue and another tier, from shabby, dusty desperado to ninja lizard.
Monkey King is hilarious.
Favorite Swashbuckler: Sarah Steele, she is just too pro. Favorite Buccaneer: Subodai, no other companion looks so dominating. Favorite Privateer: hands down Lucky Jack, fully promoted his armor is beast Favorite Witchdoctor: Old Scratch, same reasons as everyone else. Favorite Musketeer: Bonnie Anne, we've been through so much together.
