In my opinion, the debate on which bonus is the best rests mostly on what the secondary effects are.  Obviously if your build favours Might, for example, then you'd prefer to have Eder (you monster!), but Eder's secondary effect is not that good (+2 Deflection is hardly the best choice on a damage-dealing character) compared to other ones.

 

I'm thinking, and this applies to melee RANGED only mind you, that Sagani's bonus is actually the best, because Accuracy is a key stat for almost every build, and her bonus effectively gives you +3 accuracy, as long as you're melee RANGED.

 

What do you think?

I like having living party members in Deadfire, so I almost always choose either Devil of Caroc (melee dps) or Sagani (ranged dps). Eder is really, really good, but like I said, I like having him in the party instead. Durance deserves an honourable mention for a few builds, but the top three are clearly Eder, Sagani and Devil.

To your second question: Yes, it should.

For ranged debilitator or damage-dealer, Sagani bonus looks awesome.

 

For a frontliner: Eder and Hiravias.

 

Zahua's bonus is nice for a buffer and someone with many HoT abilities.

 

+1 PEN vs Kith doesn't look that great, because there are not that many kith enemies with high AR in the first place.

 

P.S. Ehh, too bad you have to sacrifice someone in order to actually get those bonuses. And I just can't do it)

Well, maybe with the exception of... *giving Durance a long look*

Using the story creator in Deadfire makes it a lot less traumatic, though XD

Naa, I actually liked Devil.

Was even eager to investigate how to bring her back as a sidekick. But Deadfire is not that mod friendly.
