I cannot understand the interest of playing with Jaheira (part the fact she is romanceable in BG2).
She's a good character (for healing spells) at the beginning of the game, but when Viconia, Branwen and above all others Yeslick are available, she becomes completely pointless.
It's a good thing that her stats have been bolstered in BG2 because her BG1 stats are real crap.
So let's face the facts :
- She has an annoying voiceset
- She has poor strength (15 => She'll need the gloves of strength or the new belt).
- she has poor dexterity (14 => She'll need the gloves of dexterity : they are in the same slot as the strength gloves... good thing that new belt...).
- She has poor Wisdom (14 => too low ; no bonus slots).
Good stats : constitution : 17.
I can't see, except the fact she is good looking in BG2 why there''s so much hype around her when other priests, druids, fighter/clerics exist in this game...
EDIT : Corrected her stats in BG1.
