His accuracy is terrible both for weapons and spells.
I thought I was doing something wrong on my end! I'm actually not crazy. He is borderline useless with how often he misses, especially with a max party of 4.
I disagree however that his companion introduction is lacking however. Him jumping down and proceeding to:
Is about as perfect of an introduction to how he actually plays as you can get. It shows that he isn't any actual real hero, or a person who has any real experience in fighting. Be it with blade or spell. The only thing he has is Charisma, talking up the fact that he can fight. Which he does passably.
He is all bark and no bite.
Now while extremely fitting, I'm not sure he makes a good companion. Maybe at best the dude who cooks in camp and carries all the tends when the camp is packed up. But his low strength means he cant even carry much now can he?
