Just started a Shadow, and it would be nice if I could take her on my journeys. Although I think I might be better off with a healer companion this time around.
If you join the ranks of the shadowtanks, you can use nadia as your dps comp. Sure theran is a decent healer, but you kill things quicker with nadia. She will probly be your best geared comp because she wears all your handme downs.
