Leveling Mirri

Companions level up simply by gaining experience points from killing enemies. You can grind your way to max level to unlock all the Companions features if you prefer this. The Mages Guild, Fighters Guild and Undaunted are unlocked by completing a daily quest from these guilds.

To level up the Mages Guild, Fighters Guild and Undaunted you will have to complete dailies for the guilds repeatedly till you reach the max level.

  • For anything related to grinding I do recommend reading the Grind Guide.

How to obtain gear for Mirri

Companion gear in ESO is different from player gear, there is no overlap between them. Once you unlock a Companion, they will start out with basic white quality non-traited equipment.

Companion equipment doesn’t have levels, can’t be enchanted, doesn’t require repairs and doesn’t include an inherent style appearance.

You can purchase basic companion gear from a Weaponsmith, Woodworker, Armorer, Leatherworker and Tailor merchants to customize the role of your companion accordingly.

Higher quality gear can be obtained from monster drops throughout the world, particularly from bosses. The current drop rate seems to be fairly low, therefore don’t expect to get good Companion gear within a few boss kills.

Possible traits that you can use on your ESO Companions:

  • Quickened (Cooldown Reduction)
  • Prolific (Ultimate Generation)
  • Focused (Critical Strike Chance)
  • Shattering (Penetration)
  • Aggressive (Damage Done)
  • Soothing (Healing Done)
  • Augmented (Ability Buff and Debuff Duration)
  • Bolstered (Reduce Damage Taken)
  • Vigorous (Max Health)

Skills for Mirri Elendis

The Companion Mirri has plenty of skills to choose from, that is also one of the reasons why Mirri can play all the roles. Each of the roles/builds below will have a different allocation of skills.

It is important to note that Companions will automatically use skills and the ultimate according to how they are set on the skill bar, basically going from 1 to 5 + Ultimate.

Mirri Rapports

The Rapport function indicates how much a Companion likes or dislikes you. Depending on your actions in the world the Rapport can increase or decrease. Each Companion has personal preferences which you can learn about in their dialogue.

At a higher level of the Rapport, the Companion will share more personal details with you and unlock special quests. If the Rapport level is very low it may be that the Companion can not be summoned for a while.

Mirri Elendis Lore – Meet the Character

cited from the official ESO website regarding the Mirri Elendis Companion.

Learn about Mirri Elendis, one of the two new Companions you can recruit with the Blackwood Chapter.

Hall Steward Delte Nethri,

Hail and well met, comrade! Regarding your recent request for an expert on Daedric matters of a sensitive nature, might I recommend Mirri Elendis? Even as a relatively young Dark Elf, she has already made a reputation for herself in Mournhold and the surrounding countryside. I have no doubt that she could be a help to you in Vivec City or wherever the Fighters Guild requires assistance.

Mirri comes from a minor Dark Elf family that has a somewhat checkered reputation for recovering ancient relics, especially items tied to Daedra and the Daedric Princes. Her father was a former Hlaalu merchant who wasn’t above trading some of the antiquities they acquired for gold or favors, while her mother was more of a procurer of said curiosities, delving into ruins with audacity and aplomb. I can confirm that Mirri definitely takes after the maternal side of the family.

Mirri’s work for us here in Mournhold has been a blessing, even if the Ordinators sometimes look askew at her methods. Not only has she been an asset in our study and subsequent drive to deal with the Dark Anchors that litter the landscape far and wide, she has also been invaluable when it comes to certain missions we have been charged with by the Tribunal Temple. I don’t know how it is for you in the city of the Living God, Vivec, but our guildhall’s proximity to Mother Almalexia encourages her to utilize us as though we were another arm of her Ordinators. It pays well, so who am I to complain?

Luckily, Mirri holds the Tribunal in high esteem, and though she is nowhere near what any of us would call orthodox, she possesses a driving interest in the Anticipations and how they relate to the Living Gods. So, tracking down relics related to the Anticipations for the Tribunal has solidified her position as a worthy consultant in all matters concerning the Daedra. She isn’t a worshiper of the Daedra, if that’s your concern. But she analyzes them the way a kwama miner studies every aspect of the insects they keep and the eggs those creatures lay. As Mirri likes to say, “You can’t fetching deal with an enraged alit unless you know what made it fetching mad in the first place.” For that reason, she has dedicated herself to knowing all she can about Daedra and Daedric relics.

Now, I don’t want you to get the wrong idea. Mirri is competent and hard-working, but she’s in no way easy to deal with. She despises authority figures and constantly skirts along the edge of trouble with the local law. She bends the rules nearly to the breaking point, but she gets things done. When she doesn’t get her way, her mood turns darker than the bottom of Malacath’s black boot. And the only thing fouler than her mood is her mouth—she curses like a Sea Elf pirate! I remember the first time she graced our hall with her presence, Mirri felt that Soris Rothan had insulted her in some way. She unleashed a barrage of profanities upon the poor sod that ended by proclaiming him “a scrib sucking s’wit with lips an alit wouldn’t kiss!” We laughed for nearly an hour over that!

I wouldn’t want a guildhall full of Mirri Elendis’s, but I wouldn’t trade the one I’ve been using for all the scrib jerky in Morrowind. And you know I love my scrib jerky! If you need a Daedric consultant to delve into the ruins and tombs that decorate the Vvardenfell wilderness, or if you have a mission that requires Daedric expertise in Blackwood or anywhere else in Tamriel, you won’t find a better hire than Mirri Elendis. On that, you have my word.

How does the Rapport system for Companions work?2021-05-15T11:06:26+00:00

The rapport describes what kind of relationship you have with a companion. Every companion has personal preferences which will affect how they feel about the player over time, based on their actions. Acting against a companion’s ideals will cause their rapport with the companion to decrease. Taking actions they favor will drive the player’s rapport with that companion up.

While this has no effect on their skills or their abilities, it will have an effect on their gameplay. At least when it comes to extremely disliking the player. If a companion hates the player, they might not be able to stand them much longer and will unsummon themselves for a while.
In order to build rapport with a companion, performing average actions is a must — either by questing, leveling or other in-game actions like stealing. This can go both ways, so the player should be aware of what they like and what they dislike.
The more a companion likes the player, the more personal quests become available to the player after having completed the initial quest.
Can Companions PVP in ESO?2021-05-15T11:05:31+00:00

Companions won’t be able to be summoned in PvP instances, in single player arenas or in housing instances. Also, in instances where you can’t navigate to your character and talk to them, they will be briefly invisible, such as while swimming.

How to level up Companions in ESO2021-05-15T11:04:34+00:00

Companions level up simply by gaining experience points from killing enemies. You can grind your way to max level to unlock all the Companions features if you prefer this. The Mages Guild, Fighters Guild and Undaunted are unlocked by simply completing a daily from these Guilds. After that the progress of your character is copied onto the Companion.
