I have said this before and I will say it again. What is the point of having Aerie and giving her all these cool items to make her acceptably good. Why not just have someone who is good in the first place and give them the items to make them awesome? Surely the logic of that isn't too hard to follow, even for Aerie lovers.
As for her being able to do the work of two people it has to be admitted that you need other people to back her up on all of her primary functions. She can't turn undead (possibly the most useful clerical aspect in my view), she is not a primary spell caster, and she is only good in combat at taking out the leftovers.

And I forget who said it but they are right - BG2 did not need another multi class mage. Three theif/mages... why...
