Thoughts on party balance
I'd like to get some thoughts on party balance. I'm playing BG1 for the first time (I played BG2 years ago) and I'm never sure about how to choose my party members. I want a balanced party that is fun to play and has characters that I like. I just felt a bit like a traitor when I met Coran and replaced Imoen with him.
Of course, the part of liking the characters is just personal choice, but I want to hear about balance and fun. Currently I have two tanks (Kivan and Minsc), two mages (Dynaheir and Neera) and two hybrid characters (Coran and my cleric). I feel that I'm overusing magic. My two mages spend most of their time and spells trying to avoid getting killed. It feels like I would be doing fine without the mages, but I think that using magic is one of the most interesting parts of the game and I would be missing a lot if I dropped it.
What would you change in my party to make it more balanced or fun to play? Please feel free to be as subjective and biased in your answers as you will.
