Welcome to my first installment of these series of posts where I will look at companions and show you (in my opinion) how to get the best out of them.
This Post’s Companion is: Bonnie AnneBonnie Anne has got to be one of my favourite companions, she can pack quite a mighty punch once she reaches her Second/Third Tier. Even before that, if she’s utilized in the right way.
Bonnie’s First Tier
We first meet bonnie in Skull Mountain, in search of Finn who has stolen Captain Avery’s Jade Amulet, and if we are to return it, we will get a very “nice” ship. At first she doesn’t seem very lethal, trained in double tap and an extra talent, 25% Unlimited Range Heal and 1x Damage and -25% Dodge. However, more will meet they eye as she “grows” up.
Bonnie Promotes at level 8 and becomes a Fox Sharpshooter, a title fit for her. Her Accuracy Increases slightly and that extra epic you can choose will start her on her journey. I’d recommend Overwatch/Quick Draw with 1x Burstfire, Overwatch if you want her to defend and quick draw if you’d like her to hit (multiple times too) before her attackers, you never know if she’s going to kill them.
Tier 3 is when it gets interesting, she promotes at level 31, (the promotion is quest is very fun, especially if you like James Bond lots of easter eggs there). Personally, I think tier 3 is where she hits her lethal stage. Her accuracy , health and damage are significantly better and you definitely see it whilst questing through Tumbleweed/Haunted Skyway. The double Burst Fire is big help too.
Now, this is where things get VERY interesting. At Level 57 (End of MB/Beginning of AQ) she promotes to her highest tier yet, Fox Highlander. The Promotion Quest goes deep into her past and reveals things we never knew about her; She has a Brother: Guy Fox, she’s from albion and she used to be part of the Radicals, a group of foxes taking revenge against MB, but she left. After promoting her she automatically learns a new epic, Stock Assault:
and, an awesome new Burst Fire Stat! She can now hit them when they are a wounded! Woot!
Look what snuck it’s way into her talent pool, a card version of her Epic Talent! Useful against Musketeer Enemies!
Final Auto-Learn Talent List: Double Tap, Second Wind, Scatterblast, Stock Assault (Card) and Stock Assault (epic)
Here’s what I would suggest for Bonnie Anne: Double Tap, Burst Fire x3 (Oh Yes!) and Overwatch (Privateer has Quick Draw, Both are epic combinations) . Health, Accuracy, Agility and Rough to the max. For Musketeer and Swashbuckler Companions Agility is always the best option because it boosts their Shooty/Stabby Attacks.
Bonnie Anne’s Epic Talent List:
Double Tap – Auto Learned when Recruited, Will allow Bonnie to target another enemy after killing another.
Burst Fire – After initially hitting an enemy, Bonnie may hit the same enemy again.
Overwatch – Attack enemy who approaches Bonnie and the Crew.
Quick Draw – Attack before (musketeer) enemy attacks her.
Return Fire – Once a (musketeer) enemy has attacked her she can attack him back.
Double Tap, Rank 2 – Same as Double Tap Rank 1 but can activate up to 3 times in one round.
Burst Fire, Rank 2 – Same as Burst Fire Rank 1 but can activate up to 3 times in one round.
Stock Assualt (Melee Epic) – If she dodges a melee attack she can hit them with her gun (Musketeer’s Riposte).
Burst Fire, Rank 3 – Same as Burst Fire Rank 2 but can activate when Enemy has a lower health percentage
Bonnie Anne’s Talent List:
Accurate – Adds Accuracy to base Accuracy.
Rough – Adds Damage to base Damage.
Agile – Adds Agility to Base Agility (Best for Bonnie as Agility will boost her damage)
Lucky – Adds Lucky to base Lucky Stats (Magical Damage Resistance)
Tough – Adds Health to base Health.
Spirited – Adds Will to base Will (Will, will help boost her Second Wind Heal)
Bonnie Anne’s Power List:
Stock Assualt – (Melee) 1x Damage to one Enemy.

Second Wind – + (up to) 25% to an Ally, Unlimited Range.
