So I played 41-VEX yesterday in our first session with the Beginner's Game. His skills were very useful during non-combat encounters, but the moment we went into combat he seemed like a joke of a character.
The heal was inconsistent and could only be used once, and at that only healed a few hit points. His attacks rolled prohibitively few dice and almost always missed. Everybody else had fantastic attacks and their out-of-combat skills were generally a match for my own.
So my question is… what am I supposed to be doing in combat? Is there some sort of skill that I should be using to help the team out? Or is he relegated to pea shooter and mediocre heals in combat?
I'd appreciate any tips and ideas. It's entirely possible that there was just something that I was not thinking of, like a skill to help or some other utility.
