2 wolves, 1 spirit wolf and 1 grissenda wolfIf you check wiki before playing, it takes away excitement, for first gameplay i would only go for it as a last resort,when cant guess how to solve some puzzle. 2h Grisenda is very simple animal, just needs 4,4,3,1,1,0 2 fury ,maxed crit chance and crit damage + optionaly cleave and hp buff.
Its actualy good thing that she is dying because it triggers fury very easily, you dont use her as a tank , but rather as another wolf. End game your idea is better, but for leveling such setup is quite ok.
If I play with cleric as main tank, I would rather use Adaon for Dps. I think with maxed Stab, Assassinate, and Flurry he will do a good job.
I just don't like the idea of tanking with my main character, because you can revive your companion for free back to 50% health, which is good for saving money on potions. The only viable strats with mercs for me ( no matter which main character I play with) are either tank Grissenda which also provides some damage, either Hirge which acts as semi-tank (it means main character also tanks), and provides a lot of heals for both of us. When Hirges mana is empty I use her as weak Grissenda. When main char hp is low, use Extra Recovery (which I always max asap, no matter which character I play with) and then Hirge is with max mana again. I hardly use any potions with this strat, even on Iron Man difficulty. No need for cognac or whatever, 0 investment,max benefits

You can't bring companions in Ark. Which is why, don't invest resources in them. No tolassian tomes, no scrolls of wisdom, everything is for main character only. This is why Body Development is important in late game. Also stun immunity is mandatory in Ark, luckily cleric has more options with stun immunity compared to other characters.Wait so can one complete Ark of Losathan with Hirge? Hirge is the one companion that has proven best for me time and time again, so if it is hard to go through the ark with her, then i need to reset and upgrade Grissenda
