​Once you get Azandar to max level, you will be granted a passive bonus (whether the companion is active or not) called Azandar’s Inquisitiveness. The passive will also be active for players who have not leveled Azandar to max level if the companion remains active. When searching containers, this passive grants you a chance to discover research portfolios. Portfolios can contain crafting recipes, treasure maps, research notes, survey reports, and other documents of value.
