Party Leader Skills & Perks

As with a governor, the usefulness of skills for a party leader will depend on what can of leader you want in a companion. You’ll find most perks for a party leader associated with Scouting, Tactics, Roguery and Leadership, but Charm, Trade, Steward and Medicine have a few to offer too. Take a look through the table below for a quick overview of which skills and perks might be best suited for the kind of party leader that you want to build in a companion.

Best Party Leader Companions

The companion you choose as a party leader will depend on which skills you want them to invest in. We would recommend choosing a companion with high skill levels in Scouting, Tactics, Roguery, and Leadership, since these have the most Party Leader perks on offer, with the most relevance to combat situations. You won’t need to bother with a companion which has skills only in engineering, since there are no Parter Leader perks associated with that skill. From the list below, The Golden and The Silent have the best potential for combat effectiveness in a party leader.
