So I've started playing Neverwinter again and I've bee hooked again.
However something that I never really understood about the game is the companions, what are they there for?
I chose a Cleric this time around for the healing because I am a fighter and I take the brunt of the attacks so I thought it would be a smart idea to get me something that can heal, however from the point that I got my Cleric which I called Haru (Ill refer to his as Haru for the rest of this post) he hasn't really wowed me with his healing ability.
I've ranked him up to 20 and he doesn't have any "gear" or whatever its called for him and I just have no idea how to get the most out of Haru and it honestly feels pointless keeping him around cause I basically spam health pots in my encounters anyway.
And just to be sure that you understand I would get Haru "gear" but I have no idea how to go about getting him it in the first place nothing I pick up from encounters can be used on him so I'm baffled.
So what can I do to get the most out of Haru and any other companions that I decide to get in the future.
