So I decided to pick up and dust off the Baldur's Gate series after a four-or-five-year hiatus (imagine my surprise when I learned about EE). Got through the first game no problem, planning my playthrough for the second, and I had a quick question.
Basically, here's my team for SoA:
Reya (my CHARNAME): Wild Mage, main offensive spellcaster
Yoshimo/Imoen: Bounty Hunter/Thief->Mage; both will handle traps, Imoen will become a secondary spellcaster
Minsc: Ranger, tank
Jaheira: Fighter/Druid, off-tank and offensive divine caster
Aerie: Cleric/Mage, defensive divine caster and summoner
Haer'Dalis: Blade, melee DPS, could tank if needed with Defensive Stance
That sixth slot is going to be rotated a lot so I can get all NPC quests done, but that's the final party. Going into TOB, I wanted to pick up Sarevok. Logically, I should drop Minsc for him since they fulfil the same roles, but RP-wise I have a hard time imagining him abandoning his new "witch", while I can think of a couple of reasons for Jaheira to leave. So she's the one I was planning to swap out.
My question is, will Aerie be able to handle all the healing herself? I'd imagine she would, being able to use Triggers and Contingencies and such to stack healing, buffs, and summons, but as I said, it's been a while since I played so my memory is a little shoddy, and I thought I'd get more opinions.
