    Hi Everyone,
    I'm returning to the game after a long hiatus (I started playing EQ2 after SWG ended---so things have changed a lot). I've noticed many players with NPC companions following them around that look exactly like their characters. I solo mostly so if these companions assist somehow I would love to know how to obtain one. I play now on the time locked server Varsoon so I don't think I can hire a mercenary? I've tried googling and searching the forums but have only gotten info on wizard-type familiars.

    Thank for any info in advance!

    Those would probably be persona reflections, it is skill for certain mage classes and there is one that is a purchasable mercenary found in the Plane of Magic.

    It could also be an illusionist or coercer pet. Those take the form of whatever you're targeting when you cast the spell, and targeting yourself is allowed.
