I am playing on hard and I have just killed Braccus (sp?) and have mostly finished the first map.
I am playing the a party with (PC) Mage (PC) Ranger and Madora and Jahan.
With Jahan I have level 2 crafting and Blacksmithing.
The game has been perfectly hard, i.e. not a pushover and a fun challenge and requires thought and effort.
I am not using Leech or Zombie or Lone Wolf after having read it might make the game too easy.
My questions are: I would like to craft more stuff, but with Jahan at level 2 I am sort of maxed out without putting points into crafting.
a) I don't think there is +crafting/Bsmithin gear - is that right?
b) Regarding henchmen - I tried to hire a henchmen and figured I could train him to craft but there isn't a crafting henchmen and level 1 henchmen umm stay level 1 when you recruit them so the party is level9 but the character is level 1 - is that working as intended? I know there are level 10 henchemen but they aren't crafters and there stat distribution is .... suboptimal so even if I wanted to make Jahan the crafter I don't want the henchmen.
Soooo - does anyone put points into crafting on Jahan and make him less useful as an NPC ?
Or how do you solve this issue? Or does crafting make the game too easy and I should just let it go?
Any advice is appreciated.
