A bit off topic, but regarding the use of other avatars through shadowkeeper, there's a catch. The avatars don't change their appearance to fit your weapons and armor (because they wouldn't in the game, would they). So this can be a bit funny. I tried using "fat man" for a fighter once. The avatar just walked around and stood still when not walking. The game, however, still measured his attacks, so he'd walk up to people and just stand there dealing out damage.
One way to get around this problem is to use an alternate avatar that has similar attack properties to your character. For instance, I just started a solo game using a female monk and am using the Bodhi avatar. The hand attacks are consistent (even if Bodhi's attacks are somewhat less graceful). I just dig the whole Vampire dominatrix look.
