Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous – How To Recruit All Companions

Learn how to recruit each companion to make your party unstoppable in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous.

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is a vast game where your choices in everything matter, including the allies and companions you make. In fact, companions you can recruit in your party depending on the certain Mythic Path you take.

They have their own strengths, weaknesses, skills, and opinions, which they’ll let you know as you adventure with them. The decisions you make will make companions not join your party, stay with you till the end or leave your group. Hence, you must ensure you are on their good side and your actions align with their morals if you want to keep them for good or romance them.

Furthermore, it would be a bad idea if you think you can survive this world solo, the demons, and monsters of the dark are a force to be reckoned with. So make sure you have a fortified and capable team in your adventures.

This guide outlines how to recruit all companions in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous.

Recruit Companions in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous

Most companions you can recruit in Pathfinder are general characters, and you can find many of them early on in the game. Some will leave and come back. Furthermore, you can retrain and respec them to customize their attributes according to your liking. Apart from them are other special companions and generic companions such as mercenaries. You have to hire mercenaries with money.

Also, since you have to choose between Aeon and Lich Route, you cannot recruit everyone in one playthrough. Your alignment determines how long a companion stays and which companions you can recruit. Although playing the Lich Route has the most recruitable companions.

How to unlock: Automatically at Prologue

Seelah is a lawful good human, and her class is Paladin. She is automatically recruited at the start of the Prologue chapter. She is a powerful and honorable figure who stands for what is good and excels in melee combat with classic weapons.

Hence, if you choose the Lich Mythic Path and transform yourself into a Lich, Seelah leaves you for good.

How to unlock: Automatically at Prologue

You will find Lann, a lawful neutral mongrel, and another Mongrel in the same cavern under Kenabres. Lann is a Zen Archer Monk. You will find Lann after recruiting Camelia and Seelah. Lann stays with you, depending on your choices, at the Mongrel Camp.

Lann is a monk but relies on ranged weapons like bows and arrows.

If you choose to show the Light of Heaven, then Lann will be recruited in your part officially. Therefore, we suggest you choose Lann at this stage. You’ll soon know why.

But if you kept Wenduag, you can recruit Lann, again in Act 3, where you fight him in Wenduag’s personal quest. Keep Lann alive, and he joins you later on.

Wenduag (Evil Mongrel)

How to unlock: Automatically at Prologue

Wenduag, neutral evil, and a fighter, join you with Lann simultaneously in the same caverns. After you reach the Mongrel Camp, if you deny the Light of Heaven, Wenduag stays instead of Lann. But we suggest keeping Lann instead.

Wenduag is also a specialist in ranged attacks.

Because you get the chance to recruit Wenduag again in Acts 3 and 4, in Act 3, you can defeat and choose to spare or recruit Wenduag in Lann’s personal quest. But if you recruit her here, she betrays your party and leaves permanently. Therefore the safest option is to recruit her in Act 4.
