Bardan says : "Need an Archer? Pick Coran. Need a lockpicker? Pick Coran. Need a scout? Pick Coran. I think you're getting the point.|
Coran's illegally high dexterity and illegally high number of proficiency points in 'bow' makes him the most astonishing sniper, able to pound the enemy with rapid-fire damage before they get within striking distance. His high stealth abilities combine beautifully with these advantages, making Coran the ultimate snipe-and-fade technician. Not too terribly hot in a stand-up melee due to his weak hitpoints, he nevertheless is a cornerstone of the canonical 'good party'.
Added to this, he has his own little quest in Baldur's Gate - again, adding to the feelings of roleplay authenticity in the game. Also, when you meet him he will be intent on finding and killing a group of wyverns. If you don't hurry up, he'll leave, so go take care of that quickly, then revel in the strike-and-fade tactics open to you as he stays with your party forever. Added to this, if you have him and Safana in the same party, he will(amusingly) try his smooth-talking routine on her, leading to some funny banter.
Coran comes highly recommended."
