    I'm only at level 2 with her but it seems all she's good for is cure light wounds, entangle was ok but web craps that out.

    Nice pic Beren.

    Not sure if they changed it in EE but in the original BG Detect Evil's range was global (map) so it was very useful.
    Jaheira is basically the druid version of Yeslick, except you get her much earlier. At her core she's a good tank (can wear heavy armor/shields, good dex, decent str, has heals).

    In BG1 druids are late bloomers. This is because they need more XP to gain levels early on, but from level 4+ they suddenly need a lot less XP to gain levels than a cleric would. Pretty soon Jaheira will be able to cast about as many spells as a pure cleric like Branwen.
    The druid level 1-3 spell list is rather meh (the level 2 list is particularly bad). It might be best to just stick to defensive spells like the cure line and Slow Poison at these spell levels.
    Once you reach spell level 4 and Call Woodland Beings comes into play though druids suddenly become godly in BG.

    The XP tables are weird, yeah. Cleric starts of faster, then druid speeds up after 4th, and by the time they get to 14th, cleric is faster again.

    XP really is one of the dumbest and absolutely worthless mechanics in D&D.

    Ooh, i recognize that portrait, it's from the box art of Silverfall! :D
    Paracelsi already touched on the druids spellcasting - one thing i'd add is that for BG1, jaheira's dex is rather low at only a 14, so you might want to give her the gauntlets of dexterity, ifd you're not using it on minsc/ajantis/yeslick.

    yeah, that 17 would have been very nice! Minsc is currently using the dex gauntlets, so looks like she's gonna stay my healing sling user. Thanks for the replies :)
