Which male and female follower would you say are the most reliable - in terms of combat - in the game?

Brelyna and Marcurio = casters

Jenassa and Um... a male house carl = melee

and of course the DB initiates (male and female) are the best all around (though a touch buggy).

Marcurio is the most effective of the dozen or so I've used.

Trust me, I'm a random stranger on the internet.
Live long, be happy, and try to ensure those around you do as well.

And can't cast anythign that's not sparks, has no elec perks and won't ACT if out of range of sparks, and has no mana. He waits for it to regen. The vid is WRONG, and old. However, the REST of his issues are plenty real. This was a 1.3 patch video.

Try that at that magical level 81 he hits. Yeah... same 8 damage per second. Assuming there's no resists in place. Also, you still need to WABBAJACK him, or his health STILL doesn't go up. :(

He DOESN'T attack otherwise. See this vid: Also, unlike this vid, he'll EQUIP the bow, but won't fire it.

Although you likely won't. MAYBE you'll change your mind. :/

P.S. This is a spoiler tag... I'm going to tell you something you MAY not want to hear. Highlight it to see what I'm saying...

He tries to kill you ALSO... high health and no damage is NOT a good follower

It's the staff that does that... enter a door and she's fine again :)

Also, she can dual wield forsworn swords... she keeps up with the initiates (almost)..

^Vid by same guy about her...:)

It's STILL just as old though, and we've figured a few things since.

High health and no damage is a perfect follower,., who wants a follower that steals kills? >_>
