Default A Guide for Companions

A Guide for Companions (Acquiring your first ones)

1. Go to Fenelia (T3) and purchase the items "Bunch of Raw Meat" and "Bouquet of Roses". The meat is 1,000,000 gold and the roses are 2,500,000 gold. There is an additional optional item in Crella called "Bouquet of Orchids". The orchids are 10,000,000 gold.

2. Fight in any square, then set your "Bunch of Raw Meat" as you would a trap. You'll see the rising text that says "It goes plarp on the ground. Nothing attracts companions quite like meat and combat." Once you plarp it, you don't have to check it. Just leave it there. Don't move it. You're doing it right. You'll never lose it. It will never be consumed. Be at peace. I recommend a corner slot of your storage window.

3. Fight in that same square in which you plarped meat. After combat and looting, upon clicking EXIT, there is a chance for a companion to appear. This is noted by hearing the arena gong. If it occurs, it will occur immediately upon clicking EXIT. It might take you 1 fight or 1000 fights. Just keep fighting. A companion will walk/dance/fly across the screen from right to left. You won't miss it. You have plenty of time to capture it. PLENTY of time.

4. When you hear the gong and see the companion, go to your Inventory and right-click your Bouquet of Roses/Orchids and use it. This presents an offering to the companion.

-Bouquet of Roses is for walking companions.

-Bouquet of Orchids is for dancing companions (variant of walking companions).

You'll capture it and your Bouquet of Roses/Orchids gets consumed. Done. You did it! Celebrate by giving someone a pineapple! Also don't worry about using Bouquet of Orchids when you needed to use Bouquet or Roses. The companion will still be there so you can use the Bouquet of Roses correctly. And this doesn't even consume the Bouquet of Orchids if used incorrectly. Confirmed, bro. I did it. I experienced it. It was frightening. No worries though. It's fine.

4b. If the companion that appears is already one you have, and you offer it a Bouquet of Roses/Orchids , there is a chance to obtain an LG version of the companion. However, this will consume the Bouquet of Roses/Orchids whether you are successful or not in attempting to LG-up your companion. As a mercy, your subsequent attempts have a rate up for obtaining an LG companion the next time one appears.

5. Check your Accomplishments window (to the left of your LOG OUT button) to level/set/feed/unlock slots/etc for all your companion uses.

TIPS:

Easiest method: Plarp meat in a low level zone. Many do so right outside Stronhad. Fight. One-shot. Exit. Repeat until you get a creepy-crawly companion. For those of you who have premium accounts, it even works whilst in Travel Mode.

Methodical method: You want companions? You REALLY want companions? Then plarp meats in several squares. I mean lots.
Ten? Fifteen? It's up to you! After reset, those squares in which you plarped meat will have better rates of companions appearing for the first handful of fights on that square. FOR EACH SQUARE. Confirmed many times. Trust me. I'm your brother.

Also, don't sweat it. This is content heavily leaning toward end-game and capped players. Your first companion will likely cost you 3,500,000 gold and a little patience. I recommend Modest Dividends as a first skill to train for your companion (it's the one that boosts your regular gold chests)
