I also vote Khelgar. I never got Quara to work well because she has so much damage spells that are area of effect and hit my own party.
I usually take: elenee, neeshka, and khelgar.. Elenee has area friendly lightning spells, summons, buffs, and perhaps a dino companion.
has four aspects: 1. Not lying, but speaking the truth, 2. Avoiding rude and coarse words, but using gentle speech beneficial to the listener, 3. Not slandering, but promoting friendliness and unity, 4. Avoiding frivolous speech, but saying only what is appropriate and beneficial.
