    Me:pally lvl 6
    Khalid lvl 6
    Branwen Lvl 7
    Imoen lvl 7

    The Q is Should I swap Khalid for Yeslic who is Fighter lvl 4, cleric lvl 5? I have my reasons for not getting rid of branwen...

    EDIT: Sorry. I am in the wrong Forumn. how can I move to BG1 forumn?

    If you're not going to get rid of Branwen, then don't bother. Khalid's a better tank than Slick.

    EDIT: Don't worry, I'll PM Tal about it for you. :)

    If you are looking for another fighter, Khalid has a wider selection of weapons available. His DEX is also higher than Yeslick's, which helps decreasing his armor class.

    On the other hand, Yeslick would be more useful if you were in sore need of extra healing or divine buffing, although Branwen should be able to cope with that on her own.

    Depends on your playing style.

    Khalid is the better tank and the far better sniper if you gave him profiency points in bow.

    Yeslick can summon many undead to keep your enemy busy and help branwen prebuffing and healing.

    Yeslick is the stronger of both because of the cheesy skeletons but you'll have to invest time for him, since spells must be clicked while Khalid just can fight on his own.

    You can beat the game with either of them without trouble because of wrong party composition, so just take whom you like more.
    You know how Khalid is, Yeslick is a polite dwarf.

    If you use pause, spell casting doesn't take away focus from the melee.

    I used Yeslick over Khalid because he has about twice as much HP when I played with both. With buffs Yeslick gains more str/dex/con/attack/etc. so he comes out to be better than Khalid.

    I had Khalid in my first game, Yeslick in my second.

    They are about the same in value. Khalid is a little better figher (duh), but Yeslick extra healing powers help make up the difference.
