Pathfinder Wrath Of The Righteous Companions Guide How To Recruit All Companions Recruit Arueshalae Recruit Staunton Vhane Regill Delamere Greybor

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous has over a dozen companions for you to recruit. However, certain decisions and Mythic Path choices can determine the people who can join you down the line. Here’s our Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous guide to help you recruit all the companions in the game. Oh, and it goes without saying that you should avoid dialogue options that will end up killing them.

Note: For more information, check out our Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous guides and features hub. Likewise, because some companions join or leave based on some key decisions, you can take a look at our Mythic Paths guide. We also have a romance guide if you want to improve your relationships with certain companions. Lastly, please be reminded that this guide contains minor spoilers.

 

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous – Companions guide — How to recruit all companions in the campaign

All the companions in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous have a starting class and a default starting level. Still, you should be able to retrain and respec their capabilities by talking to an NPC named Hilor. Just remember that those who join you earlier in the campaign will allow for more leeway when it comes to changes. It’s definitely easier to try and unlock a Prestige Class with them. However, those who join much later tend to be fairly limited in this regard. Since retraining companions only resets them to their default level, you won’t be able to change a few premade picks.

Note: Speaking of companions and retraining, Hilor also allows you to recruit a mercenary (i.e., generic companion). The cost gets higher depending on your character’s level (since that will also be the mercenary’s starting level). This generic companion can be customized fully to your liking.

Seelah

  • Race: Human
  • Starting class: Paladin
  • Location: Prologue – Underground Cavern

Seelah is the first companion who will join your party in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. Your character falls down a crevice after attempting to fight a demon. You’ll spot Seelah (and an NPC named Anevia) within mere moments. She’s extremely loyal to your character. But, the moment you fully transform into a Lich (Mythic Rank 8), she’s going to go her own way.

Camellia

  • Race: Half-elf
  • Starting class: Shaman – Spirit Hunter
  • Location: Prologue – Underground Cavern

Just a screen away after meeting Seelah, you’ll stumble upon Camellia, too.

Lann and Wenduag

  • Race: Mongrel
  • Starting class: Lann is a Monk – Zen Archer. Wenduag, meanwhile, is a Fighter.
  • Location: Prologue – Underground Cavern

You’ll encounter these two after getting Seelah and Camellia. There are some important choices that can happen as you progress:

  • When you reach the Mongrel camp, you can either show the Light of Heaven to the village chief or pretend that you didn’t find anything. If you pick the former, Lann will stay with you, and Wenduag leaves after resting in the tent. If you pick the former, then Wenduag will stay instead of Lann.
  • At the end of the Shield Maze dungeon, you can choose between Lann and Wenduag. I’m not sure if the Angel or Demon Mythic Path dialogue choices would have an effect here.
  • There are also some other tidbits regarding Lann and Wenduag which can happen much later in the campaign. For instance, if you made Lann stay during the prologue, there’s a chance to meet and spare Wenduag’s life when you’re doing Lann’s personal quest during Act III.

Woljif

  • Race: Tiefling
  • Starting class: Rogue – Eldritch Scoundrel
  • Location: Act I – Defender’s Rest

Check the basement of the Defender’s Rest tavern to find Woljif inside one of the cells. To free him, you’ll need to talk to Irabeth.

Woljif will leave your party automatically near the end of Act II, but you have a chance to meet him again during Act III.

Finnean the Talking Weapon

  • Race: It’s a talking weapon.
  • Starting class: Seriously, it’s a talking weapon.
  • Location: Ancestries and Wonders Shop

Examine the desk in this area and Finnean will introduce himself, uh, itself, to you. At certain points in the campaign, you’ll learn more about its past (i.e., Storyteller dialogues or encounters with other NPCs). You may also talk to Finnean independently by opening your inventory and clicking on the button at the bottom-right corner, as well as equip him as your personal weapon.

Daeran

  • Race: Aasimar
  • Starting class: Oracle
  • Location: Act I – Arendae Party House

While exploring Market Square, an Arendae servant will tell you the location of the manor. Visit this location, fight the demons, and talk to Daeran to have him join. This location is also where you’ll find Aranka for the Starward Gaze quest and Azata Mythic Path.

Nenio

  • Race: Human -> Kitsune
  • Starting class: Wizard – Scroll Savant
  • Location: Act I – Random encounter on the world map

In the same area of Market Square where you found the Arendae servant, you should also see a Mysterious Stranger. If you try to talk to this fella, he’ll simply walk away and vanish. Then, in a subsequent random encounter on the world map, you’ll find Nenio. You can pass a few dialogue checks with the cultists here and, after defeating them, you can get Nenio to join your group.

As you’re doing Nenio’s companion quest called “More Than Nothing,” you’ll get to visit the Nameless Ruins in Act II. This time, Nenio will reveal her true form as a Kitsune.

Sosiel

  • Race: Human
  • Starting class: Cleric
  • Location: Act II – Crusader Camp

At the beginning of Act II, your character will become the commander of the Fifth Crusade. Queen Galfrey will then have Sosiel join your army.

Regill

  • Race: Gnome
  • Starting class: Fighter – Armiger and Hellknight
  • Location: Act II – Reliable Redoubt

Regill is the first recruitable companion in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous who has a Prestige Class unlocked by default. He’s recruited as part of a quest called Walking By Hell. You’ll receive it while exploring the world map during Act II.

Pfnd2 Wotr Comp Rec Gd 2a

You’ll have a random encounter where a man named Yaker says that his squad has been ambushed. Agree to help him to reveal the location of the Reliable Redoubt.

In this location, follow the sloping path while battling the gargoyles. Enter the cave, talk to Regill, and defeat the remaining hostiles. You can ask Regill to join your army afterward.

Arueshalae

  • Race: Demon (Succubus)
  • Starting class: Ranger – Espionage Expert
  • Location: Act II – Drezen

During Act I, make sure that you’ve unlocked the Azata Mythic Path. Then, in Act II, you have to solve the Shrine of Desna puzzle in the Lost Chapel.

With both these requirements completed, you can finally assault Drezen. Go to the prison in the eastern section of the fort to find Arueshalae. Tell her about the vision and choose the Azata dialogue option. She can then be added to your party.

Note 1: Choosing the Azata Mythic Path dialogue option here should be fine. This occurs before you’re locked to a specific Mythic Class.

Note 2: Because Arueshalae is a demoness on the side of good, fully going with the Demon Mythic Path will cause her to leave your party.

Greybor

  • Race: Dwarf
  • Starting class: Slayer
  • Location: Act III – Drezen

After you’ve liberated the citadel of Drezen in Act III, talk to Irabeth. You’ll receive a quest called The Dragon Hunt. Go to the tavern at the northeastern corner of the town to recruit Greybor. Initially, you’ll need to pay him 2,500 gold for his services. After the Dragon Hunt quest, you’ll have to pay Greybor 12,500 gold so he can permanently join your forces.

Note: The Dragon Hunt quest is actually required to obtain the Gold Dragon Mythic Path since it allows you to meet the Storyteller during Act III.

Staunton Vhane

  • Race: Dwarf or Undead
  • Starting class: Warpriest
  • Location: Act III – Drezen

To be clear, you’ll already have run-ins with Staunton Vhane very early in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous’ campaign. However, the opportunity to have him as a companion only occurs much later.

At the end of Act II, you’ll have to fight him, Minagho, and Nurah. Then, at the start of Act III, Irabeth will tell you that Staunton Vhane’s corpse is in the prison of Drezen (the same area where you rescued Arueshalae).

Pfnd2 Wotr Comp Rec Gd 4

If you chose the Lich Mythic Path, you can tell Irabeth that you have plans for the corpse. Eventually, you’ll get the opportunity to reanimate him as an Undead servant.

Alternatively, I’ve heard that the Aeon Mythic Path allows you to change the errors of the past so he can be redeemed.

Delamere

  • Race: Undead
  • Starting class: Ranger
  • Location: Act III – Temple of the Good Hunt

There’s a companion in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous named Delamere (Undead Ranger). Like Staunton Vhane, she also requires the Lich Mythic Path to be recruited.

To do this, just travel to the Temple of the Good Hunt west of Drezen. Inside, you’ll find a cultist. You can either get the key to the crypt via diplomatic skill checks or by killing him. Next, interact with the statue to open the crypt.

Down below, you’ll find a sarcophagus with the corpse of the priestess Delamere. If you’re following the Lich Mythic Path, you can reanimate her.

Unfortunately, you can’t do anything else except let her go or lay her to rest. She won’t become a full-fledged companion until much later in your Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous campaign. I believe this occurs after you’ve built the Ziggurat (I haven’t progressed further in my save file where I selected the Lich).

Knowing these tidbits, we can say that choosing the Lich Mythic Path would be the way to go (role-playing aside) if you wish to recruit the most number of companions in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. The downside is that your full transformation into an immortal Lich (at Mythic Rank 8) would also cause Seelah to leave. It’s two for the price of one, so it’s up to you if you wish to advance further with this decision.
