What kind of party do you like to use, Rogue, Ranger, Fighter, Cleric,... Which of races and classes work best together? Did you try an unusual combo that worked well? Please tell me how you build your parties.

I liked using the Cleric, Rogue Fighter, and Wizard, they seemed to work well together, although i will say i have several close calls.

I like having 2 more martial characters and 2 more caster oriented. I'm thinking I'll do a run with 2 Druids to combine Land and Balance. For martials, I'm spoiled by the spells Rangers have available. Spike Growth, Silence and Conjure Animal are great. Silence in particular can hard-counter a good number of hard fights. 


Typos happen. More so on the phone.

I just beat the game last night with 4 fighters, one of each subclass.

How did you heal with 4 fighters? just potions?
sounds an interesting approach 4 figthers.

Did you finish DLC or the main campaign?

Finished main campaign with them. Healing was not a real problem most of the time. The commander used his ability a lot to grant advantage and temporary HP, plus second wind. Taking short rests meant being able to refresh second wind or use hit dice to heal.

My all time favorite is,

2 half elf Oath of Motherland Paladins, both two-handers

High elven Battle Cleric

High elven Shock Arcanist Mage

The first 3 all carry longbows

The Mage used to carry a bow, but he does more damage with Firebolt, so why bother?

Once they get about 9th level, they do serious damage, spellwise.

In doing Lost Valley, I have this combo at 10th level now, and I have to tell you, they are very nasty to deal with.

When all four member can do anything from Firebolt to Fireball, son, you're in deep poo poo.....

The funny thing is with those Longbows, most opponents never get close enough for hand to hand combat

Well, I have a new fav

1 Paladin- half elf,  Oath of Motherland, two-hander & heavy crossbow

1 Ranger- sylvan elf, bow specialist, using a heavy crossbow, but carrying a twohander, w/second strike feat in case you get close, so he can back up the Paladin up front. Hunter's Mark is very potent!

1 Cleric- high elf, good dex, battle cleric, using heavy crossbow

1 Wizard- high elf, good dex, shock arcanist, carrying a longbow

This lineup has been working well:

Half-Orc Paladin - Tirmar for Shield, 2H for extra attack, Academic for Antiquarians

Half-Orc Cleric - Battle for martial and spells, Sword & board for defense, Spy for poison crafting

Sylvan Elf Wizard - Green Mage for archery, Identifier, Lowlife for thievery

Sylvan Elf Sorcerer - Draconic for fire attack, Talker, Aristocrat for skills (Crown Bearer)

I like the Half-Orcs for the stat boosts and Sylvan Elves for the added movement. All with Darkvision. Made sure everyone got Athletics 5 so we are good jumpers. Maxed out our primary stats at level 4. Soon got to AC 20+.

I like a party with half male half female characters. I use 

  1. a female elf caster, 
  2. a female halfling cleric (healer) ,
  3. a male human or half-elf druid/ranger (meanwhile preferable druid)
  4. a male half-orc Barbarien for the melee battle 

Often those who call me a hero speak solely of my battle prowess and know nothing of the principles that guide my blades. (Drizzd'do urden)

What I have been using is

Half Elf Oath of Motherland Paladin

Sylvan Elf Ranger Bow Specialist

High Elf Shock Arcanist Wizard

High Elf Battle Cleric

All characters carry bows 3 heavy crossbows and Longbow.

I would say half my fights a spell is never cast

Al characters have 17 minimum Dex, so they will nail you from afar

I beat the game with 4 sorcerers (fire dragons or smth) - at start healing was an issue but then deleted everything with no problems.
