We're getting ever closer to our 4e game and have begun to hash out backgrounds. Much like in Fire Emblem (yes I do pretty much decide all of what I want to do based on video games) I really want my character to work exceptionally well with one of the other PCs. Obviously I want to work well with all of them, but, since our backgrounds suggest that we have been spending time together I really want to be exceptional with another PC.
I know this PC is a greatsword using fighter dragonborn.
Irony! I'm playing a tiefling. Either, at this point, a psion or an ardent - I've only played strikers before so my ability to look at these two classes and figure out whether or not they're good at what they're supposed to do (controlling/leading) is remarkably and embarrassingly minimal.
Which class will allow us to work together by ourselves the best if we find ourselves in that situation? That is, which class will best compliment a greatsword fighter?
And if you're feeling altruistic: Our group consists of a bard who is actually trying to avoid healing powers, a monk or a striker, a druid based around being really fast, and the aforementioned characters.
