During boarding actions, does it help any to maintain your non-party potential companions at their highest levels?

Yes, you should lvl them up as often as you can, both equipments and abilities.

 

Tho it has some problems:

 

1) AI you set for them doesnt stay the same, wizards will blast your own dudes with AoE even if you set the AI to only auto-attack.

 

2) You cant delete the character you dont want, you have to add them to the party and kill them 3 times for permadeath.

 

3) Lvling them up is actually really tedious to do, you need to add them to the party and go to main land to be able to click the "+" icon, there is no "lvl up" button on their character screens.

I guess to me, it's not that big a deal, because I like rotating characters through my party.  I tend to go with a core party of 4 people and treat the 5th slot as a floater.

 

Right now, my core party is my PC (a Black Jacket/generic rogue Swashbuckler), Eder (pure fighter), Xoti (priest), and Ydwin (pure cipher).  After that, I tend to rotate other characters though on for a couple of reasons.  One, because I'm working a quest that's related to the character.  Or, two, I'm working a quest where I think that I need a specific character's unique abilities.  For example, right now, I'm in a place with a lot of fampyrs, so I've added Pallegina to the party for her Aegis of Loyalty ability.
