Character Selection for Dark Alliance allows you to choose between 4 distinct different characters. There is no Character Creation in the game, so you will instead play as one of the 4 pre-determined heroes. Each hero has their own Attributes, Race and fulfills a different archetype in the traditional D&D party composition. These four characters are:
- Bruenor Battlehammer: Tank
- Catti-Brie: Ranged & Crowd Control
- Drizzt Do'Urden: Critical DPS
- Wulfgar: Balanced DPS
- More characters will be added with the Echoes of the Blood War Expansion
There is no character customization or character creation for the characters, as they already have fixed Stats, gender, Classes and appearance at the start of the game. You can change cosmetic appearance by equipping different types Armor or Weapons.
Who is the best character?
There is no "best character", as they all have their different strengths and weaknesses. It is also important to note that YOUR playstyle may be the defining factor in which character is best to for you.
