Pathfinder: Kingmaker Best Companions Guide
In Pathfinder: Kingmaker, having a balanced party can mean the difference between life and death during enemy encounters. The composition of tanks, DPS, ranged/support, and skill check specialists require a particular combination of characters to pull off artfully.
With 11 different recruitable companions spread across the world, players should fill their party slots wisely in Pathfinder: Kingmaker. Finding the weaknesses of your current makeup can prove crucial when the time comes to build an alternate. Whether that’s swapping in a heavily armored sponge or a ranged support specialist, Pathfinder: Kingmaker’s fluid class system allows players to complement their primary class with subsequent careers.
Though beginners may proceed with a pure-primary character, taking a level to add alternative careers can prove extremely beneficial in several instances. These paths will allow tanks some secondary healing abilities, bards to mark enemies, and mages to achieve greater defense.
Note that personal builds may disrupt this list slightly. However, this is generally a good rule of thumb to follow for party builds:
- Tanks: keep two or three heavily armored characters at least. Without the ability to taunt enemies, their AI will target the closest available character. Spreading out the beating helps your party withstand many different assaults.
- Damage Dealers: ideally have three damage-focused characters – two close-combat and one AOE ranged dealer.
- Ranged Support Specialists: one or two companions should cover your ranged support base. Their skills should buff the current party’s stats and cover skill-check gaps.
