    I can't decide who to drop for Sarevok: Minsc or Jaheira?

    This is my party:
    - My character (warrior)
    - Anomen (romance)
    - Jaheira - drop option number 1: she is annoying and I think I can survive without her. Maybe I could miss her elementals.
    - Minsc - drop option number 2: since Sarevok is a melee I'm not sure if I should swap him for Minsc.
    - Nalia - my planetar evocator
    - Imoen - she gave a piece of her soul to Sarevok and probably it's going to be funny to have her around with him.

    Assuming that you currently have Minsc in a melee role as well, he'd be the easiest one to replace without changing your party composition too much.
    Out of the two of them, Sarevok is by far the superior fighter. In fact, he's so good at what he does that he might even outshine your main PC.

    dropping Jaheira isn't the worst thing in the world either, since you have Anomen to take care of divine spellcasting, though some of the higher level spells/HLA's unique to druids can be nice to have, mainly elementals (for obvious reasons), Firestorm (does decent aoe) and the nature's beauty spell. (auto succeed blind on enemies, even dragons and liches ? yes please!)
    Still, if you really can't stand her and don't mind running with a bit more of a combat oriented party, you can easily drop Jaheira.
    Probably a good idea to start running Minsc as a ranged character when dropping Jaheira and adding Sarevok if you want some more ranged potential.

    Thank you xosmi!
    I dropped Minsk and I'm statisfied with the change. Sarevok and my warrior are a perfect frontline now :)
    Since Minsk is in the Pocket Hell, I feel he's part of the group anyways.
