Companions in the Blackwood Chapter

Companions will join you on your adventure, you can use them anywhere except PVP and Solo Arenas. You can always despawn Companions on a click if you don't need/want them. There are two different companions available at launch of the Blackwood Chapter. They are unlocked via quests in the Blackwood zone.

All companions have their own unique identities. The companions can like or dislike your actions. In the future, we will be updating our Companion Overview Page for everything related to companions.

Once you unlock a companion they start at level 1 and they can level up by gaining experience with you through quests or combat. You can also slot skills for the companion and change their looks (Costumes, Outfits & Mounts!).

Oblivion Portals

Oblivion portals spawn randomly over all the zones. Unlike other world events where monster waves spawn, here you actually have to enter the portal and fight your way to victory!
Once in a portal you will fight monsters, champions and bosses. The Oblivion portals can be as big as public dungeons! The deeper you get, the more challenge awaits you!
