Why She's Included and How to Use Effectively

Jaheira can hold her own in close quarter combat. Spells like Armor of Faith and Iron Skin will augment her fighting abilities considerably.

Jaheira also has a number of very useful combat spells. There are the summoning spells, such as Conjure Nymph in the early stages, and the elemental summoning spells in the later stages. Indeed, Conjure Fire Elemental can be learned fairly early despite her being a multi-class character. She can also cast Defensive Harmony which on top of Anomen’s Protection from Evil 10' Radius will help greatly.

There is also Insect Plague and Creeping Doom. These are two spells which can make a big difference in battles where the enemy includes both physical combatants and spellcasters. The spellcasters will always fail to get their spells off. The fighters will often break rank and run around in panic.

Of course, she also provides extra healing power, so that the party is not relying on just Anomen.

Jaheira does not possess the great natural strength of Minsc or Korgan, but this can be overcome with a Strength-enhancing item. The Gauntlets of Ogre Strength are now my choice.

Jaheira’s hit points are not great either. Neither does she acquire them rapidly due to her multi-class status. In the course of the game, you’ll be able to find items which increase her hit points and/or regenerate her.

Jaheira’s THAC0 does not improve as quickly as a single class warrior’s would. Again, get her that Girdle and any other items which will improve her THAC0.

Jaheira must still obey her oaths as a Druid, so her choice of weapons is limited. Nonetheless, you’ll still be able to find a good scimitar, club, and/or dagger for her in both Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal. This is especially true after an installation of the Item Upgrade mod, which adds a few new scimitars and clubs.
