All physical damage dealer Party?

Can you create and succeed with a party that has no healer or magic user in the new DLC?  If not, can you just rely on a druid for all the magic needs?  I really like the hoodlum, and rangers and some sort of tank.  But that leaves only one spot open for a magic user.  I would like to have a barbarian and fighter to go along with the ranger and rogue but I dont think that is possible....Im not a big fan of fireworks so magic users, although they are great, I try to shy away from them.

Oath of the Motherland Paladins

I ran a campaign of four of them, all wielding Twohanders and they were very BAD!

They ate the vampire lady up like Skittles.

BTY, all four carried heavy crossbows, all half elf, all good Dex,

These dudes were BAD-ASS!

I believe those would still be considered casters and healers. I believe he is asking about a party that cannot cast any spells. To that question I have not tried it out in the new campaign but I have beat the original campaign with only fighters and rogues. Going to do an all barbarian one as well.

Well, I recall the advice given to adventurers by Alvin Merton.....you need a good healer in the Badlands.

I will say, of my current party, using 3 heavy crossbows and 1 longbow by the Mage, nearly half my encounters never see a spell go off. We just nail them at long range.

I must say fire arrows ad a nice kick to it.

I have done an all fighter party and did not miss having a healer. I am currently most of the way through an all rogue party and have not missed a healer there either. With the amount of healing potions you can either find/buy/craft I have not really felt healing was lacking.

Now with my party of all clerics and my party of all druids I actually feel I could just sell all of the potions for extra cash, as they are not really necessary. My party of all Paladins and party of all Rangers could also get buy selling all of their healing potions.

My all wizard and all sorcerer parties do sometimes need the healing potions for when they take a nasty critical hit, as they have fewer hit points, but again I have not really felt a loss by not having a dedicated healer.

I do enjoy having the heals from casters, though I think you can do an all martial party if you wanted to.

A cleric with the battle domain can frontline almost as well as the dedicated combat classes. You can fit one or two of those without harming your all physical damage party composition. Though having one should be sufficient if you also have a paladin and maybe a ranger. (Personally I like having a paladin and ranger in my party compositions)
