How To Increase Isobel Rapport.

Companions in The Elder Scrolls Online use a Rapport system which indicates how much a Companion likes or dislikes you. Be careful not to offend your Companion too much or they may no longer join you on your journeys! Increasing your Companion’s Rapport can also unlock more quests and dialog options with them.

The rapport shows the relationship status with Isobel Veloise. It can range from extreme dislike and contempt to viewing the player as their greatest ally and dearest friend. The player can decrease and increase the rapport via their in-game actions. Different actions have different cooldowns, so a rapport can not be positively or negatively influenced in rapid succession.

How To Increase Isobel Rapport.

  • Completing a Bolgrul delve daily: +125
  • Completing a High Isle world boss daily: +125
  • Killing a world boss: +5 (no cooldown)
  • Killing a delve boss: +5
  • Killing Daedra: +1
  • Killing a boss-type Daedra (ex. dolmen boss): +5
  • Crafting “sweet” food: +5 (1-hour cooldown)
  • Crafting something with blacksmithing: +5

  • Talking to Lyris (ex. in the Wailing Prison or Fighters Guild): +10 (can be done multiple times on the same day)
  • Using a repair kit to repair gear: +1
  • Accepting a duel request: +1
  • Summoning the Druadach Mountain Dog or Bravil Retriever pets: +1

Isobel Companion Perks

Isobel has a special Companion Perk that you can unlock called Isobel’s Grace. Players can take advantage of this perk even with Isobel is not actively with them. Isobel’s Grace bestows a chance, after defeating a World Boss, to recover the pack of a slain knight. Packs may contain additional loot.

How does Equipment work with Isobel Veloise in ESO?

White companion equipment can be purchased from Weaponsmith, Woodworker, Armorer, Leatherworker, and Tailor merchants throughout the world, particularly from bosses. This equipment can be traded so it can be bought and sold on the market.

In order to engage with Isobel Veloise in ESO, talking to her will initiate a conversation and you can select the Companion Menu option.
On the first page on the left side, the Equipment is available. A player has to carry the equipment they want her to wear in their inventory, otherwise, it will not be possible to equip it.

Isobel has the same equipment slots as the player, except for only being able to slot one weapon set, as she only has one ability bar. The quality of the equipment ranges from normal to epic, with either no traits or specific traits. A player will not be able to craft Isobel gear but will have to find the equipment. Isobel’s equipment does not include level, cannot be enchanted, does not require repairs, and does not include an inherent style appearance, but instead inherits Isobel’s style.

Each Companion is a fully customizable combat NPC. This means that you can build your Companion into a specific Combat Role such as Tank, Healer, DPS, or hybrid. One of the main ways to customize your Companion is through Companion Gear.

Companions in ESO currently cannot use the same sets as Players. Instead, they use Companion Gear. Companion Gear is basic equipment that offers a static Armor Bonus or Damage Stat plus Companion-specific traits.
These 9 unique Companion Gear Traits further customize your Companion’s combat role for tanking, healing, or DPS.

The 9 Companion Gear Traits are:

  • Aggressive – Increases Companion Damage Done.
  • Augmented – Increases duration of all Companion Buffs and Debuffs.
  • Bolstered – Reduces Companion Damage Taken.
  • FocusedIncreases Companion Critical Strike Rating.
  • Prolific – Increases Companion Ultimate Generation.
  • Quickened – Reduces Companion Ability Cooldowns.
  • Shattering – Increases Companion Penetration.
  • Soothing – Increases Companion Healing Done.
  • Vigorous – Increases Companion Maximum Health.

Can I customize Isobel Veloise in ESO?

In order to engage with Isobel Veloise in ESO, talking to her will initiate a conversation and you can select the Companion Menu option.

From here you can choose two different customizations. At the very first character sheet on the right side, underneath the Combat Level, is the Outfit. Here the player can choose between No Outfit and Companion Outfit.

If the player decides to go with No Outfit, the current equipment that Isobel is wearing will be displayed. If a player wants to have a costume that they own worn by Isobel, they have to choose the Collectibles icon on the top right. Here a player can also set the mount that Isobel is supposed to ride.

In order to have their own customized Outfit displayed, the player needs to go to an Outfit Station that is not in a player’s house because Isobel needs to be active at the time of customization.

The head armor will be hidden at all times and will not be displayed regardless of equipment or cosmetic override settings.

Depending on gender, race, or other restrictions, some of the player’s cosmetics might also not be usable by the companion.

Players can’t use polymorphs, personalities, skins, hats, hair, or tattoos on companions.

Check out guides for Mirri, Bastian, and Ember. In ESO Isobel Veloise can be used for both DPS, Healing, or as a tank and as she is based on a templar with templar skills, she excels at Melee and healing. I believe you can make ESO Isobel Veloise a great all-around companion, and you do now need to worry about healing all the time.
