    I usually use scimitars and slings with her, this pretty much let her use a shield for more protection as well.

    I like giving her spears and staves. She's devastating with Impaler.

    Clubs and slings, then daggers and scimitars.

    I always give her dagger, for the boomerang dagger you can buy in the Underdark. Until then, just a plain club, unless you do Trademeet, where there are a couple of good clubs.

    I eventually give her scimitars as well, there's a good one in ToB.

    I typically do the druid grove early on if I have Jaheira, as you get two very good weapons during that quest. You can get Blackblood for her main hand (or if you're trying to save up gold, you can always take Gnasher, as you get that during a fight) with Belm in the offhand. IMO, that's the best combination early on. If you're keeping Jaheira through ToB, then either Staves or Spears are excellent choices. There's nothing wrong with Impaler, although you'll do fine with Ixil's Spike or Staff of the Ram as well. Of course, NONE of these options are available early on in SoA, which is why Blackblood/Gnasher w/Belm is usually the best you can do early.

    Sling and spells for me. ;)

    To me she is not a front-liner.

    I like two slabs of meat upfront, with casters after that.

    She isn't a front liner - until you get ironskin. After that, she pretty much is the uber-tank. Iron skin is one of the few druid spells that have no cleric counterpart, and one of the few times that thre druid spell list is superior to the cleric spell list. Ironskin is THE reason that R/C and F/D are superior tanks to F/C.

    I have her as my third fighter, being beaten by the likes of Minsc. I have her use slings, and for melee, clubs. You can get an amazing club in Trademeet.

    Staff! Nothing else! Simply because there's no good clubs(or at least, good in comparison to damn near everything else) late in the game, and staves just pwn. Well mostly staff of the ram. Scimmies are alright, but I just like the appearance of this little elven druid beating the hell out of a lesser demon with a stick. It r pwn!
