Thanks. Surgery is such an important skill to have active, but I wasn't sure whether she needed to be physically on the field of battle or just in the party. Ha...when she's on the field she dies pretty quickly and I assume that negates her medic skills from that point forward. I try to make my companions have horses so I can give orders separate from archers/infantry. However, I'm starting to learn that cavalry can be important in a lot of battles and when you start getting command of ally forces it makes it even harder to control. So it may be easier to make them archers if they are weak like Fanuil and the Mirkwood girl, although the latter is getting stronger (she's my pathfinder/spotter). The Rohan drunk guy is a bit stronger once you get him. It's taking forever to get the Loth dude and I'm Loth. The game will practically be over when I get enough rank to nab him. I should get the other Rohan companion soon (the girl). Not sure what her skills are. I'll probably never get the Dwarf and I've not found a Gondor companion yet, but haven't spent much time there.
Do companions bicker and leave like in Native? I hope not.
Still need help with the Spy mission, if anyone knows how to get that one to work.
