And when you do play it, take the Monk as your sidekick. He rips people apart with his bare hands. The campaigne may get boring but watching that wont.
I agree. The monk is so much better than any of the other companions in combat it's not even funny.
The only problem with him is that he's very much evil which can be a problem if you're RPing a good PC. If you play an evil necromancer, though, it's no problem.
