I was wondering what is the best team that people use the most in the game I used Roulana Traladar Forgrimm For the mos part I even feel some characters such as the elf in tallon are completely useless as he is at a much lower level than rest of the party as well as the power potion lady (but you get great recipes from her )
All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by frost. -J.R.R Tolkien- LOTR
I actually prefer the archetypical RPG build Me (Warrior, Pirate, etc) Gwendala (Archer, elf, half mage) Dranor, Gladys (Typical rogue) Jost (Battlemage) But thats just for asthetic sense
If you want a power build Forgrim (Max 2 handed axe and hammer when you get titanium ring of strength) Me (Again Warrior or Pirate) Jost (You need magic) And you may be surprised but Ancorin (the elf dude) First of all he is half mage so you can cast fastness of body to increase his overall defense much more than any lowly human fighter Second casting Ice cold warrior on himself and others greatly improves your fighting power since its an elf skill as it makes you immune to damage and wounds for a decent time Thirdly with a spear he can be used greatly to inflict superb wounds on flesh enemies with mortal wound (not to forget that one of the best spears in the game comes shortly after you recruit him) Also using his increased agility and Move as Lightning spell dodge actuall becomes an asset
Of course you could just become a elf warrior yourself but even then there is no greater joy than 2 elf bros kicking butt together Traldar seems weak for the simple reason that he casts aside his shield and has low resistance to magic He is usefull till you get Ancorin though In Rhulana's case she focusses on sabers rather than axes (Of course you can change that but Forgrimm is the ideal choice due to his increased strength) Auralia is useless. Period.

Me - Elven Fighter as DPS and Offhealer (Optional)
Forgrimm - as main tank
Traldar - as DPS and off tank
Jost - as main healer and summoner. (I also like his fire balls spells if there's not a load to heal)
The main character can be swapped at will ofcourse, since he just fills a support role. I'd say Forgrimm is the best meat shield, and Traldar has a slightly better DPS then Rhulana, but his survivability is considerabily less - I just stacked a few points in willpower, his 50 HP is enough to survive most area damage.
Jost is a load better at healing then Gwendala, Gwendala can use a bow ofcourse - and can therefore damage a load without the use of magicka at larger range. But Jost starts with a higher Magicka pool and regenerates quite a bit, especially if you stack him with regeneration items. His survivability is also a load more, he starts out with 12-13 more HP then Gwendy and is 100 % mage, whereas Gwendy is more or less a ranger and starts out with a low HP pool.
I did some switching around, but the combo I finally got that I like the most is:
Me - Healing Mage, takes care of buffing, most healing, summoning, and most offensive magic
Forgrimm - Megatank
Traldar - Slick 2h sword dps
Gwendy - Longbow dps, backup healing
To me, at least, this combo feels really nice. I like having Gwendy do mostly dps, but take over healing when either too much is going around for my healing mage to keep up (thankfully rarely, but it does happen when you've only got one character with a shield!) or when he's otherwise incapacitated. Everyone complains about Traldar's weakness to magic, but slap a psychic focus on him when you face magic enemies and he'll be fine. For the most part, imo, Traldar is a beast.
