Followers in Diablo 3 are companions that fight along the side of your Monk as you adventure in Sanctuary. As you level up and gain new skills, so will your followers. There are three companions in Diablo 3. Eirena, an Enchantress, offers a plethora of utility and control of a defensive nature, while Lyndon, a Scoundrel, offers buffs and control of a offensive nature. Kormac, the Templar, fullfills his role as tanker and healer.
Monk Follower: Eirena, the Enchantress
After millennia in slumber, the Enchantress Eirena, the last remnant of a clandestine Sisterhood of Arcanists, has awoken to a nightmare foretold by prophecy. Bereft of kinship, her resolve to defeat the legions of Burning Hells remains unbroken. Unhindered by obscure plate armor and blunt swords, can the Enchantress’ mysterious mastery of the Arcane dispel demonkind from Sanctuary forever?
The talent skills of the Enchantress increase her ability to augment the skills of allies, bolster her aptitude in obscuring the will of her foes and focusing the destructive force of arcane magic.
Crowd Control – Gifted with a keen intellect and an unrivaled understanding of the Arcane, the Enchantress clouds the mind and shackles the will of her unfortunate foes.
Support and Utility – Protected by Arcane spells the Enchantress shields herself in magic and augments the skills and abilities of her companions.
Damage – Despite her delicate frame, the Enchantress is a conduit of raw arcane power, ready to strike at will and tear the limbs of countless foes asunder.
Monk Follower: Lyndon, the Scoundrel
A lethal assassin and master gunslinger, the Scoundrel Lyndon has devoted himself to a life of burglary. Free from the constraints of conscience, the Scoundrel seems an unlikely hero to save Sancturay from the influx of vicious demons from Burning Hells. Nevertheless, Lyndon is a force to be reckoned with, piercing demonskin with lethal accuracy and vanishing without trace into the shadows when threatened.
The Scoundrels talent skills improve his ability to evade damage, increase his capacity to cripple and blind foes and strike with a salvo of arrows or volley of explosives bolts.
Damage – Whether wielding crossbows or guns, the Scoundrel can strike with lethal accuracy from range or decimate waves of demons and beasts with explosive shots.
Utility and Control – When endangered, the Scoundrel Lyndon can draw on his skills to avoid the gaze of his enemies and elude imminent threat.
Augmentation – Despite his selfish mindset, the Scoundrel can strengthen the skills and abilities of his companions and allies with ample buffs.
Monk Follower: Kormac, the Templar
The call of the Templar is to protect the weak, to bring justice to the unjust, and to vanquish the servants of Burning Hells from the dark corners of Sanctuary. Protected by an unbreakable faith in the Light, the Templar charges undismayed into battle to challenge demons head-on in melee and bring respite to wounded allies.
The Templars talent skills increase his ability to heal wounds, strengthen his capacity to protect their companions and deal vicious damage in the name of Justice.
Tanking – Protected by heavy armor, the Templar taunts enemies and draws their attention, thus keeping allies out of harm’s way.
Healing – Blessed by the Light, the Templar can apply his skill in healing to mend and heal the injuries of wounded allies.
Damage – Despite his valiant nature, the Templar never hesitates to exploit his skill with blade and sword to pass judgment on evil with deadly blows and crushing might.
