I read something about a month ago on that said Miles left a party and stole alot of the items (potions, arrows etc.) I have just revisited the monestary after going through Arnika and wonder if I should dump him now to avoid this and keep the exp points for myself. Thanks for your help.

I'm a bard lover so I never saw a need for Miles. It is useful to have a pickpocket/lockpick type in your party but other than that, I think there are better NPC's out there. It does get easier to retrieve squad members when you get portal and access to the T'rang teleporter.

Every NPC is as good as another--it all basically depends on who's in your core group. If you have a thief, you don't really need another one. In my case, I had a bard, but I didn't want to train her in pickpocketing. I wanted her to focus on music, and artifacts.

So Miles was perfect for me. He came in at a very useful point, when his level was more or less on par with mine. (Later, you'll encounter a number of NPCs who are much lower in level, as you advance. They're still a good value, but Miles can help you right from the first.) I found Miles very helpful, stealing spellbooks, resurrection powders and scrolls, weapons, ammunition, etc. I was able to collect a sizable haul, while Miles built up his skill.

And remember, *all* the NPCs will leave you in one or two instances. The game was designed so you couldn't keep a given NPC through to the end.

I'm not suggesting you should stick with Myles forever. But he's one of the first, and best, NPCs you'll find.

I talked to him, got all of the "important" info he has to offer, then killed him.

Then I take it you missed the quests he presents to you throughout the game? And no, I'm not joking. [img]smile.gif[/img]

I got two...if there are more, then yes, I missed them.
Don't worry, I'll play again.
I just hope I can restrain myself next time (I've killed him in two consecutive games) he just gets on my nerves.

Actually, I "hired" him in my first game. He came in really handy while I trained my Ninja's lockpicking skill up.
I did not know about NPC's not going everywhere with you then though and when he refused to go onto the Umpani Base Camp with us, I got a little wary of him and whacked him then and there. [img]graemlins/biglaugh.gif[/img]

I tried to PP him too. He turned on me and I had to do him in.

I think his "snidley whiplash" voice would have led me to that action sooner or later anyway
