    [​IMG] What character are you currently using along with which Henchmen.

    I'm using a Halfling Rogue called Frodo Baggins (original i know) who mainly uses shortbows but sometimes dives in with a trusty dagger. He is chaotic Neutral and is accompanied by Grimgnaw (damn he's a beefy henchmen, slaughters everyone).

    He said only Grimgnaw, and as far as I can count that is only one henchman.

    I play a dwarven lawful good cleric called Fendur, and I use the classic longsword and shield. Right now I have Daelan for my henchman, but I've also used Sharwyn.

    I play a bard, and so far I have hired Linu, Tomi, and Daeleon (or whatever his name is), and I swap between them depending on what I come across. Works for me so far.

    [​IMG] When you hire someone, they stay on contract. So when you need a different one, travel to them. Talk to them, agree to having them follow, and away you go. Then when you need a different one, repeat the process. I don't see it as an issue, because in reality no one can know and do everything can they? However, in your case, you have similar characters which may keep you alive, but doesn't help you progress very far. I would try Tomi, or Daleon/Grinaw (or whatever their names are!)

    Generalist mage + Daelan. Very efficient combo. For the weapon, I exclusively used crossbows the whole game.

    Garion Durendal, Paladin/Cleric supported by Sharwyn, Tomi or Bootynights.

    Weapon ... Dagger of Chaos (Greatsword) or Daystar + Shield, depending on my mood.

    Singe Aylomen, Tiefling Assassin (4 rogue/9 monk). I use Daelan for my henchman atm, but I'm considering going solo, Daelan is really two powerful, and it bothers me using him. I'd much prefer a fighter type that wasn't just the pure tank, but I gotta take what I can get. I'd use one of the others, but I'm already a monk and rogue, and I hate the spellcasters' scripting, so I guess I'm stuck. When I start playing again, perhaps solo will be the way I go.

    my character is Nasandra Relend, a female elven ranger. I've tried all of the henchpeople, but I stuck with Linu... Her healing's pretty useful and she can fight pretty well too. Her offensive spells aren't to bad either.

    [​IMG] Boy, I love Linu.

    I'm an archer and I use her to become my wall towards incoming melee attackers.

    And when she casts some negative energy blast, it sometimes reaches 280 damage. It helped me to kill a lot of powerfull opponents.

    And of course, she cute, single and funny.

    (Damn , NWN is not as romantic or emotional as Buldur gates 2.)

    If you want something really-really-really-really hard, try playing a wizard with Sherwyn.
    No melee support.
    Well, with that combo I'm at level 8 now, although I have to pick her up at the temple many-many times.

    Elven Sorcerer. Now towards the end of Chapter 3 and so far I've used Tomi all the way.

    With the spellpower available, I thought it would be more fun to go the Rogue way than with a powerful fighter.

    Handy for traps etc so far, but I gather from other messages that he may fail more often in chapter 4. Oh well. With enough protections we can take the hits, can't we? Eh, Tomi? Tomi? Damn, back to the temple.

    Earnenduil Cheren, elven cleric of Obad-Hai. He was originally accompanied by Tomi, but then decided to dump him and go with the bard. Unfortunately, keeping her alive uses up all of my healing spells.

    Roshnak Senk (Half-Orc, Male, FTR 20) was my main character. I had to make an amulet that gave him +2 Int and Wis, because by Chapter 2, the "slow" dialogues were getting kinda annoying. Anyway, I used Tomi at first, then went with Linu when I discovered that while I *could* waste time letting Tomi pick locks and disarm traps, Roshnak could just smash everything and shrug off all but the mightiest blows. So, I switched to Linu, who mainly healed Roshnak after every mindless charge into danger, and tried her best not to get killed.

    Eventually, after many long, sleepless nights of NWN, I began imagining dialogues between Roshnak and Linu, and started having my big half-orc fighter go out of his way to protect her. Then I fell asleep on my keyboard and woke up to find Roshnak running into a wall.

    [​IMG] Evani Ly'Rune, my elven monk, lawful good, I use, well, Tomi at first, but any trap he couldnt disarm caused me to die, anything else I easily shrugged off, so I dropped him half way into chapter one, now I got Grimgnaw, duel monk power! Why have tomi when he can only pick and disarm things that I can easily get around? I want him for the deadily stuff, not the mediocre, and any chest that is very strong and can absorb tons of damage still can be destroyed, I just use my monk gloves (long death currently) so Grimngaw and I can do fun damage to tons of stuff!
