A companion was thought to be a character controlled by AI that each player could choose to use. It is, however, no longer in the game as Arenanet has decided to remove it completely.[1]

Companions were planned to have customization similar to the Heroes of the original Guild Wars game series.[2] Players would be allowed to bring a single companion with them, who would be considered an extension of the character and not take up a party slot. When a player chose not to bring a companion, their character would instead be buffed.
