Companions are hatched from eggs found in Geode caves. They provide bonuses, can be upgraded and will follow you around in the caves. Outside of caves you can use Companions as Styles for your Ally.

Types

There are eight types of companions, each with common, uncommon and rare versions. Each companion type and rarity has different stats which can be unlocked by upgrading.

Eggs

Companions are hatched from Eggs obtained from Geode caves.

There is also a rare chance to receive eggs from assisting critters in Geode caves.

The chance to receive a rare reward from hatching eggs is increased with a Lodestar which can be crafted at the Crystallogy Workbench.

Upgrade Costs

Upgrading your companion unlocks additional bonuses, unique to that companion.

The cost to upgrade a companion is determined by the companion itself, and varies on two materials. We've grouped these into the three cave types by companion.
