Companions are a feature in Guild Wars 2. Companions will have customization similar to the Heroes of the original Guild Wars game series. Players will be allowed to bring a single companion with them, who will not take up a party slot. When a player chooses not to bring a companion, their character will instead be buffed so that they will not be disadvantaged by not bringing a companion. However, Arenanet did say that they would be scrapping the companion scheme as with 8 players, each with their own companion, the gameplay gets very clustered. They considered the companion to not add much to the overall gameplay.
There will no longer be any use of Heroes/Companions, besides that of pets and minions.
