In Diablo 2 there were mercenaries and now in Diablo 3 we have followers. Followers are only available in solo play. They should be an assistance for solo play. They have a great impact for solo farming runs, because;

  •  You can rely on your follower and so you can configure your tactic on the follower's skills.
  •  You get 20% of your follower's magic find, gold find and +xp. (source)

There are 3 different followers:


  • The templar are holy warriors. The key features are defensive fighting (tanking), healing and recovery, and holy justice.


  • The scoundrel fights with ranged weapons. The key features are ranged killing, disabling shots, and attack boosts.


  • The enchantress uses magic to protect there allies and to do damage. The key features are debilitating magic, arcane blasts and supportive spells.
  • During the play through you get quests to access the followers. You can have all 3 of them, but you must decide which one of them should fight with you, the others stay in town.
