What's going on? I equipped Viconia with Gauntlets of Ogre power and the Sling of Seeking, and suddenly she stands calmly away from enemies and whacks them with 30+ damage?
And not only once in a fight...she repeats it over and over again...!

I tried the same with Jaheira, but she only makes half the damage...and my front figures are lucky if they hit a 20 now and again (one dual wield, the other 2hand weapon)

It must be a bug...I think Viconia is a tough char to keep, but she's sexy and naughty :) so she gets kicked out every time I hit a rep-bonus...but now...I was to play kinda good, if she does this kind of damage I can't let her go..

Well, Viconia has a pretty high Dex (19 I think), so she gets some bonuses with missile attacks.

sling of seeking allows strength modification to damage (most missile weapons do not). So in this case she will have dex plus strength bonus to her sling attack.

I always give viconia a good magical sling and the skullcrusher mace.She shoots about double the damage then when she hits with the mace.
