Best Followers In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The Contenders: Page 3XW


You can get him very early on in the game, and even though I am not sure as to how high his level goes, I know for sure that he makes extremely good use of heavy armour and weapons, and if you're the "Warrior type", having Golldir along side you, both rushing into combat with your weapons drawn is something of a UNIQUE experience:))

You get to help him save his ancestors from a necromancer, and he has a lot of perks which many other followers don't have.

Level up to 30... He can use bow, one/two handed weapons and heavy armor plus he can't die

Golldir!?... Well, a golden smile, of course!


This is only my second follower after Lydia died, but I don't see much point in changing to anyone else. If Telvas and myself conjure a fire elemental then there is four of us and getting through most caves is pretty easy.

He is just awesome, no more to be said

A dark elf expert in destruction magic and in conjuration, can be found in tel mithryn after destroying the ash guardian

ONLY dog/or wolf NPC who can use the Fire Breath shout, once a day. Can't quite take the Ebony Warrior though, I'll admit. Strong teeth! AND,... a good heart.

My first dog in the game, though his lifespan is low he's really cute and he risks anything for U.

45Huskies from Dawnguard

Super cute! One husky actually killed a Blood Dragon before with me.

OMIGOD BEST DOGS IN THE WORLD, I'm just so sad because I don't have dawnguard. But if I did... Stuff barbas and viligance and all dogs that look like dirty muts (all dogs in original Skyrim) these dogs are the cutest things I have ever seen and they have ARMOR, I mean ARMOR, what doesent scream "fantastic in battle" more than armor on a friken husky. Really what not to love.I'm with the huskies all the way 100%.

Ahtar is one of my all-time favorite followers! Where else are you going to get the Headsman's Axe? Nowhere.

When entering Solitude for the first time, the first thing you see is Ahtar chopping of someone's head. Enough said.

Probably one of the most intimidating looking dudes in the game. He's chill and got swagger, he also has one of a kind armor and the headsman's axe. He got mad skillz too

No level cap, very cool equipment and pretty a smile. Just saying...

Easily the most beautiful maiden, and looks fabulous in Dawnguard armour.

This dude is a KILLING MACHINE. Light armor, high sneak, and strong. He likes to dual wield and that turns him into a ' Cuisinart as he dices up every mob in sight, and his light armor skill is so high he can tank! Don't kill him...recruit this and watch yourself become his sidekick.

49Steadfast Dwarven Sphere

Really great follower but you can only get him if you have the dragonborn DLC he is a good companion for levels 10-50


I just want to write about him so he has something but I'm heard people say his awesome I want to see him

Harry Potter is great he's a magic user I like to fart on him and I like killing Harry Potter

Very handy with One-Handed weapons and Heavy Armor, he also makes a great Blade.


Lob is a great follower he is two handed wears Orc armour all the time unless you don't give him Orc but if you give him way better armour he will use that armour. Lob is an awesome follower and you need to do Orc missions to be able to have him.

Don't get him sometimes I can't find him then he's licking ball in a shack

I love lob I married him he is so cool with the malaccath armour and he is 2-handed

Very good in most heavy armor. She is my wife and I love her.

I have had Iona from Riften for most of my game. She beasts most bandit camps before I can even reach them. She has a pretty good carry weight and and is one of the quieter followers (I hate talkative companions like Mjoll and Lydia). She has also never glitched on me.


Better than Sven. Light armored, trains in archery, and has himself a bow, quiver of arrows, and dagger. Pretty faithful. Not the best but he is my most common follower. I've armed him with thieves guild armor, only gauntlets and and boots are imperial steel enchanted with 15% increase on archery and one armed combat. He has a steel shield, imperial bow, steel arrows, dwarven dagger, sky forge steel sword and a torch. Shame he doesn't do destruction, restoration, and/or conjuration but you can't have everything. I understand your choice though if you disagree. If you agree, I am overjoyed(not literally) and the picture you see him in is totally awesome. Thanks for reading.
