Well come on people, everyone knows kobe yojimbo is the best who couldn't love that ridiculous damage and dodge, and don't forget if you give him relentless rank too he is almost unstoppable.

And Bonnie Anne's reply was funny. Something along the lines of a sarcastic "You're the one who's talking."

And my new favorite companions. It's a long list with a lot of ties.

1. Catbeard, Lt. Springer, and Gracie Conrad.
2. Bonnie Anne and Sarah Steele
3. Subodai and El Toro
4. Ratbeard and Mustang Sally
5. Froggo Villa and Shiruku Neko
6. Monquistador Explorer (Yes, he is actually quite valuable in a fight.)

Least favorite would be a tie between Nurse Quinn and the Witchdoctor Crab you get from Valencia.

Scarlet Freeman, level 57 Swashbuckler
Alura Windlass, level 12 Witchdoctor

My favorite companion would totally be the cat pirate. i foyu have not heard if it then look it up but i won't be mad because only pople who bought beta got it. He is EXTREMLY good once you upgrade him.
IF your in pvp and someone has him that is VERY RARE but they are extremly powerful.

I know I'm really jumping on the Similar Train here, but El Toro is my favorite companion, so far, by far. I also really like Black Angus and Wild Bill Peacock.

Have a Great Day!

My most favorite companion in the game currently is Kobe YoJimbo!

He is an awesome Bull Samoori, his Crown Brother Wagyu or as I call him WagE is a very worthy purchase from the crown shop. He starts with First strike and later on, I train him in relentless twice, then riposte!

My second favorite companion is Kan Po, who is also a very worthy companion as well as his crown counterpart. He starts with Riposte, which I later get riposte 2 and Relentless twice, and he gets a heal.

What is your favorite companion and why?
As of recently Zeena - this companion is a game changer seriously its like may cast fairy for your pets in wizard the same type of impact!

the fire cards rack up 1000's and 1000's of damage because the AI of the PVE characters is not tuned they just stand in the fire and don't move when you use both cards to flood an area. Also she shoots alot of extra hits with overwatch, burst etc. great companion to side with my buck as a distraction while i put on my aura's so i can actually take some hits and not be a soap bubble ready to pop.

My long time favorite companion has been Bonnie Anne. Though I really like Froggo Villa as well. But Bonnie Anne is a great one to have in battle especially when you promote her to the fox highlander.

Definitely Bonnie Anne. Whenever an enemy comes towards here, She fires. It makes me happy. But one thing I don't like is whenever she has a good hit, she starts chuckling and puts here hands on her hips. im the captain here!

My favorite is definitely, without a doubt BONNIE!!!! I dunno, but I really like her... She's the only girl on my crew, and a fox! Does my message boards name show that I like foxes or not?

A close second is Gracie Conrad!

I also like Kobe very much but, how can you get him to have more health in the Samurai (second promotion) one, if you could tell me that would be great.

Hands down, definitely old scratch. I like his personality and backstory and plus I like his ability to summon minions, drain/steal health from enemies and attack multiple foes at once. Let me answer some of the most common complaints against witchdoctor companions in general.

1. "They have low accuracy and can't train accurate": While I would admit that it would be nice if they could learn/train accurate, that's the trade-off for being able to attack multiple foes at once.

2. "They have low health & survivability": Again, that's the trade-off for the powers that they possess. Unlike privateers and buccaneers, witchdoctors weren't made to be tanky characters in the game, and if you want them to survive longer, then beef up their health and resistance so they can last longer in fights.

3. "The minions die too fast": Well if they're constantly focused down then yes, however, they serve as an extra unit for foes to attack in the fight. Plus, the more hits that they take=the less hits that you & your main team takes, so there's that at least. Left alone the damage the minions can do starts to add up, trust me, I know.

Overall though, you just gotta learn to work with your companions strengths and not against them. Do this, and you'll find that companions you once thought were weak/useless can actually be a force to be reckoned with in battle/fights, so there's that at least.

I love Duck Holiday, he is the cutest companion ever! Yeah, I'm kind of a Duck Holiday fangirl.
He has the cutest little waddle-walk and whenever he gets a kill, he does a little heel click! He also says the most awesome things in battle like, "I'll be your Huckleberry"
I also really like Tyson, and think that he doesn't get enough love. He is always very consistent and never hits anything below a 150 since the time you recruit him and gets loads of really powerful criticals. Once you promote him to Chicken Boxer, he gets even better.
Shiruku Neko (which I think means "silk cat" it Japanese) is also a great companion, and definitely one of the best companions you get from a side quest. Her side quest is actually meaningful and makes sense, unlike some of them, and she kicks butt! It was also cool because for the longest time Bonney was my only female companion (I hadn't gotten to Marleybone and Gracie yet) so it was really nice to have another girl on the crew. All those Y chromosomes were driving me up the wall!
