Do the preform their roles efficiently? Also how much content is in this game, I heard it comes with all he previous versions DLC?
It just isn't a Bethesda game if it doesn't corrupt my savefile.

If you set them up well (individually and as a team), they can mostly play the game for you - this includes dominating bosses with minimal or no help from the player. And yes, it comes with the previous versions' DLC, it's a game you can easily put hundreds of hours into if you enjoy experimenting with different builds, team setups etc.

Pawns are shockingly stupid.

Even pawns with max bestiary and carefully managed inclinations pawns will still exhibit embarrassing levels of stupidity.

Because of this pawns are generally better setup for pure dps or specific gimmick builds (pioneer pawn with stamina hammer). Trying to use pawns for advanced group tactics is like herding cats.

That's cause your pawns aren't perfect lolis, the only time I have a major problem with my pawn AI is against cursed dragons (they curse their AI I guess). :D

I think Death also poses a problem lol.

That's just a matter of knowing how to manipulate their AI, I sprint away and they almost never get caught by him.

He IS very slow so and I may have done similar things. But you mention them killing things without your assistance originally, I did not know running from Death killed him lol.

Well, they can drive him off without assistance if they are strong enough, but they can't really stunlock him.

Casters and fighters probably can't do much but striders can and I've knocked him down and driven him off with 2 other level 200 warriors so warriors can contribute, think rangers could too.

They probably wouldn't do well if there were other enemies around and they weren't all Scathers though XD

The ai in this game is weird as the pawns will do things that will cause you to take a moment and think wow, that's impressive why can't more ai partners be like that. Then they will do something right after that is hilariously stupid like warn you about a cliff.. Then jump off themselves to their deaths. The way they learn and how you can set them up feels unique and is really cool though. I feel more of an attachment to the ai partners in this game than in other games because of that.

Oh BTW fernus I seen your pawns in the sharing post and decided to try them out in bbi since I'm level 60 and just started the grind seriously and they have been the best pawns I've ever used. Lolinator takes care of herself well and drops health bars off monsters quick and guardnexus has done well too.
With my strongest, I will beat your strongest.

Loli is love loli is life! Try out Altair (PSN: Lolinator3rd) too, she's not as survivable as GuardNexus but can still hang in BBI and actually does more damage at her level of 24 O_o, she'll also boost your XP gain through the roof due to being so low level. She's such a loli XD
