Warlock is a great class, he has access to some spells that trivialize some fights. You can also multiclass him with paladin or sorcerer.

Really ?!
For me its anoying having to Switch characters to see there stupid quests..
and worst of all having to tolarate a Bunch of quests and conversations with characters that i dont Care..haha

Nowadays Gale always stay in the Stone, Karlach i always Take her Head off for the Sword, Wyll i never even Talk i just Let hin Training the Kids and when i Kill Karlach he vanish from the Game and Halsin i always Left hin in the Shadowcurse or let the Goblins Kill Hin becouse he is Useless and i cant Save the Shadowcurse without having to tolarete hin Trying to lay down with me for the rest of the Game when i already refused 300 times. haha
Jesus i cant..

Its Anoying Having so Much people in Camp For Real.
BTW the camp get Super Ugly Too with so Many Open Spaces and i will not Bring those Losers just to fill up the open places. comoon.. i cant anymore..

It's difficult to care about characters if you don't engage with them.

After a while, I'm bored of the same classes in fights and the same commentary from the characters. I prefer to switch them up.

Well i already beated this game more then 20 times and i already Tried all of then as party compositions in many different Ways..
and like i Said Before..
The only Ones i Trully enjoy and Like were Shadow, Astarion, Lae'zel, Minthi.. the Rest its just came along for the Party..
Never care or Liked any of then..
And after Trying the First Time Never Again.

Thats why i always Felt that The Larger Camp was a Mistake.. like i told in my Post..
If they Never wanted a Bigger Party this was a Mistake..
Becouse Gave People Hope.
In other BG games yu could Have 6 man..
Having a Bunch of Companions Made Sense..
Here its Useless.. its just for people say that has Variety..
and BTW some of then Get a Poor Quest Line i bet becouse of that..
Becouse has Tooo Many companions for no Reason..

Like Wyll dosent have nothing going for hin, Gale, Halsin, Karlach..
All of then have a Shallow quest and incomplete stuff.. making useless and anoying briging then..
and thats why has a Bunch of Posts of people Pissed of becouse of that and wanting more from those characters..
Thats the Problem..
Less is More Larian..
If they Stick with only the 6 on the Cover i bet all of then would Have a Great Tale..
If Halsin were a NPC only and Karlach, Minthi would Have been Playble in Both sides of the Tale from the Get Go
and we would Have Balance becouse 2 Druids in Hero Path its Stupid.. sorry.
Yu dont Need Halsin becouse yu can Have Jaheira witch is a Much more stronger Druid.
And i can even Point More reasons for WHY having so many companions Sux. haha

1 Game that Made this Ok at Least was Dragon Age inquistion..
In that Game having all of then would Make your Inquistion Stronger.. Here thats not the Case.
Since yu Cant Bring all of then its Useless.
and Increasing the Party size like i Told Before.. its Double Down on the Mistake..

If yu Dont Belave in Me.. Give a Try with the Mod and Play in the Harder Difficult..
With 5,6 party Members yu will blaze tru the Game no Joke.

I have now multiclassed him with Paladin and a dip in Sorcerer (for the flying-feature) now, put some light armour on him and that amulet with the Shield spell. Shield-Spell desquishyfies everyone. And it started getting fun.

I like my camp full, but - in case this is how it works now - I will gladly switch Halsin for Minthara after lifting the curse in Act 2.

I play for story not for challenge. I'd really like a custom difficulty option to have a larger party. Personally I want 7. The 6 origin characters and your player character.

It's odd to me that the 6 characters that have the largest stakes in this adventure, 3 of them sit on their hands all day. I wouldn't. Lae'Zel? She's not the type to allow you and ShadowHeart for example leave her behind and just wait till we get around to the Crèche.

I want them to all be present giving their likes and dislikes, advice and cross conversations, special dialogs and cut scenes, all together.

If I sound crazy maybe I am. But I just have a really hard time choosing between all these characters. I'm also still in act 1, but I feel like my opinion still has a place. Personally I also just dont see how someone could argue against the inclusion of the opinion, if it's OPTIONAL. You know?

It continues to feel so astoundingly stupid to ever leave anyone in camp.
There is simply no good narrative reason for it, and in turn that means there is no good reason for the game to have been designed with a party cap any smaller than "everyone you can recruit + you at once".
At this point because of how dumb it is, I don't want to play through the game with people waiting at camp anymore, at least none of the origin characters, maybe I can tolerate teammates who could easily have been non-party allies, like Halsin.

So now the question is, do I only recruit 3 of them every run, leaving whoever I don't pick unrecruited, or do I go through the effort and put up with the bugginess of combining a mod to bring everyone with me at all times and a mod that removes all but 4 people from every fight (because I don't want to turn the game into a roflstomp)?

Anyone have any thoughts on which of those is the choice more worth pursuing?

One option that feels natural is to play an evil Dark Urge. Depending on decisions and urges, you can wind up with far fewer companions than in a regular game. And should you happen to cross the party limit nonetheless: an evil person has ways to restore balance.
It is nice to have a team of four that always stays the same. Wasn't that one of Larian's original ideas? It has its merits.

Why do you assume that mods equate with 'bugginess' (and with six-patch BG3 of all games)?

There are several excellent mods that convert the game to 5e and RAW rules which increase the difficulty and improve the game compared to Larian's ridiculous system. On normal mode, a party of six with 5e/RAW was more difficult than a party of four with Larian.

Disclaimer: I haven't played the game since Patch 4 broke it so the situation may be different now though I doubt it.

Because I looked up those mods and they're both buggy on their own and when interacting.
