    One of the answers i hate when i'm asking for party advice, is don't take that character he is completely useless.

    I hate powergaming, imho powergaming can destroy a game like Baldur's Gate. Many have probably met Quayle on the bridge of Baldur's gate used him once, looked at his stats, and then ditched him again, because they judged him to be weak and useless.

    That is part of the character, i always try to make the best out of character even if it is very weak.

    Instead of ditching Xzar for Edwin for the 100th time, try to make him usefull.

    I always read about the late thieves having to little find traps skill, well thats what potion of thievery and the priest spell find traps is for.

    in short: instead of bashing the so called uselless NPC's, tell me how to improve them and make them worthwhile.
