Woljif Jefto is a Companion in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. Companions assist the player by joining his/her party and have their own backstories and unique characteristics.

 

As the descendants of demons, tieflings are not the most respected or trusted of Mendev's citizens, to put it mildly. However, a few minutes in conversation with Woljif is enough to see that it isn't prejudice working against this particular tiefling - it is his puddle-deep personality, his membership of one of Mendev's biggest thief gangs, and his chronic inability to stick to anything, even his own principles. Woljif sees you purely as a convenient way to solve a few of his problems. At least, for now.

How to Recruit Woljif Jefto

Act 1

Woljif can be recruited in the basement of Defender's Heart. Woljif must be recruited before the Defender's Heart is attacked during A Stay of Execution as he will disappear from the basement after the quest completes.

Act 3

During Act 2 Woljif will leave your party during the quest A Blow from the Sky. Once you have reclaimed Drezen by completing Banner over the Citadel you can re-recruit him in Act 3 by completing two specific "random" encounters on the world map. These encounters are not actually random at all - think of them as hidden locations rather than random encounters. You must have recruited him in the basement of the Defender's Heart otherwise these encounters will not occur.

  1. The first encounter can always be found by traveling just south of the Lost Chapel on the world map. You will enter a Wilderness Encounter and will have to fight some baphomet cultists while others run away to warn the Crescent of the Abyss.

  2. There are two locations that will trigger the second encounter; you can go to either of them to trigger the event. The event won't appear unless you've done the first encounter.
    • Location 1 always happens on the road heading west from the Lost Chapel, halfway between the chapel and Greengates. After your first encounter with the cultists, head north back up to the Lost Chapel. Next, head west and keep going forward (the road will curve a bit, don't move onto any other paths). Once you've reached about halfway between the Lost Chapel and Greengates, you'll get the second encounter.

    • Location 2 always happens on the road going south from the Lost Chapel to Wintersun. Unlike the first location above, which can be accessed without having to fight any armies, this location requires you to defeat a demon army and liberate a demon fort (Stone Maze Outpost) before you can travel there with your party. Travel south from the Lost Chapel until you have arrived at the Stone Maze Outpost. Once your party has reached Stone Maze Outpost, continue south and the event will trigger almost immediately.

Once you've arrived at the 2nd encounter be careful of the traps on the map and head to the northern section. You'll find Woljif there and can recruit him after solving his predicament with the cultists.

Gameplay

Woljif has some of the highest melee damage potential of the main party members, with his high Dexterity and Sneak Attack ability having the potential to deliver punishing amounts of damage, even early on. After having a party member occupy an enemy's attention, Woljif can flank them and deliver his attacks with Sneak Attack. One can also use spells and effects that make the enemy helpless of flat-footed to ensure Woljif gets the highest damage possible out of his attacks. Considering the amount of strong kukuri and rapiers are in the game, giving Woljif Martial Weapons Proficiency or a dip in a class that has it can potentially pay off. 

Woljif's archetype, Eldritch Scoundrel, is a double-edged sword. On one hand, it allows him to have greater versatility than a normal rogue, able to cast spells and use wands or scrolls so long as his Use Magic Device skill is high. He can also memorize different spells from scrolls. On the other hand, it forces him to never wear armor to avoid Arcane Spell Chance Failure, which when combined with Woljif's already low Constitution, makes him a serious glass cannon with the frailty that usually comes from being a wizard. When deploying him, make sure the enemy's attention is already occupied and avoid sending him in first by moving his initiative order until later if need be. Different class options include Slayer, or Vivisectionist Alchemist, both of which keep his Sneak Attack progression and reward more martial power in exchange for his spellcasting as an Eldritch Scoundrel. 

Personality

Woljif is typically playful and smug, smiling and joking whenever he has a chance. In the past, he has lived his life on the streets, relying on his wits and instincts to keep him alive. This makes him quite slow to trust, keeping the Commander at arm's length during Act 1 until they complete his personal mission to earn his trust. He is implied to be quite young and this shows in his love of playing practical jokes. He apparently enjoys messing with people who don't know any better, like telling Nenio and Arueshalae blatantly false information for laughs. Having grown up hungry on the street, his initial dream is to be rich and powerful so that he can lord over those who looked down on him. 

However, his smile and jokes seem to hide a great deal of sadness and fear borne from his past. His parental abandonment, his grandmother's abusive alcoholism, and the discrimination he suffered as a Tiefling growing up in Kenabres, all left deep scars on him. He is very scared for his own life, so much so that he panics during the gargoyle attack on the Crusade and runs off, not rejoining the party out of fear that the Commander will kill him for deserting. It is only after the Commander defends Woljif from Voetil that he comes to truly trust them with his life, beginning to see the party as the family he never really had. He never deserts again after this, unless the Commander goes down the Swarm path. Conversely, he responds enthusiastically to several Trickster path dialogues.

Woljif Build Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous Guide – In this Woljif Build Guide, I’m going to break down the Archetype to multiclass with, Attributes, Skills, Feats, Medical Discoveries, Spells, Mythic Path, and Equipment you should choose in order to take advantage of Woljif’s Sneak Attacks. We’re going to multiclass with the Vivisectionist Alchemist to stack these attacks and to buff ourselves with Mutagens and Spells. If you’re looking for a way to efficiently eliminate enemies up close with a Dual Dagger Melee Build, then this Woljif Build Guide is for you!

 

By default, Woljif’s Eldritch Scoundrel Prestige Class is average at best. It aims to combine the best features of a Rogue and a Wizard, however, it isn’t very effective. You don’t get Sneak Attacks as often as you should and your Spell Slots per level are too limited. Your Armor Class (AC) or how difficult it is to hit you is also low to begin with, which means that you often need to be micromanaged just to stay alive in Combat.

As such, we’re going to multiclass with the Vivisectionist Alchemist. Not only are you able to take Sneak Attacks at every other level, but you also gain access to Medical Discoveries. These provide you with Attribute and defense buffs, which can be activated prior to the start of an encounter. You also perform an additional Natural Attack on top of the Melee Attacks you execute with Daggers.

      I like him as an Arcane Enforcer, higher hit points still a decent amount of Sneak Attack, Supernatural abilities that ignore SR, both defensive and offensive good ref and will saves, extremely higher BAB which means more attacks per round, and higher-level two-weapon fighting feats. Even if you don't like him as a TWF you can easily switch him to Archer using Arcane Enforcer since it still gets bonus feats like a rogue, or rogue/slayer talents. Also resource management for the Arcane Enforcer is much easer than Vivisectionist, or Eldritch Scoundrel. Woljif is probably one of the most versatile characters in the game because of his high int and his high dex, there are multiple ways to build him.

        4 Eldritch Scoundrel - +1 Con
        5 Arcane Enforcer - Armored Mask, Dodge
        6 Arcane Enforcer - Improved Unarmed Strike (Archmage Armor)
        7 Arcane Enforcer - Crane Style (Two Weapon Fighting Mythic)
        8 Arcane Enforcer - Dimensional Slide, +1 Dex
        9 Arcane Enforcer - Accomplished Sneaker, (Full Reservoire)
        10 Arcane Enforcer - Crane Wing
        11 Arcane Enforcer - Crane Riposte, Wooden Flesh (Weapon Finesse Mythic)
        12 Arcane Enforcer - +1 Dex, Improved Two Weapon Fighting
        13 Arcane Enforcer - Greater Two Weapon Fighting
        14 Arcane Enforcer - Lightning Lance, (Defensive Study)
        15 Arcane Enforcer - Outflank
        16 Arcane Enforcer - +1 Dex, Slippery Mind or Crippling Strike
        17 Arcane Enforcer
        18 Arcane Enforcer
        19 Arcane Enforcer
        20 Arcane Enforcer

        Does everything the Vivisectionist does, but gives your More BAB, Higher HP, Better saves, 2 additional Slayer Talents to pick from, 2 more feats to pick from, 1 more Arcane Exploit to pick from, and of course you should dump all stats into Dex by this point.
