Assuming you just have the base game, my group really likes the Eagle Rider, Ranger and Wizard. All of those will give you mobility on the board which is even more important with fewer than four. I suppose that the Sorceress might replace one of those three.

Enjoy the game! It will be a more significant challenge with just three, but, of course, more rewarding if you can score a win.

All characters have different advantages. However, one really good 3 combo is the wizard, sorceress, and rogue. Wizard moves to fight off cluster, plus his wisdom is really nice at slowing general progression. The sorceress is great at fighting minions (as well as other things), and the rogue is great at getting cards. I used these three with the dwarf the other night and that combo did very well for us! Good Luck

It is best to have a range of abilities:

One (maybe two) character to get the Minions, One to generate resources (cards) and One to help the other two out and maybe help with Taint, Generals, Healing, Special Actions, etc.

I really like the Ranger, Rogue and Sorcerer.

Peace
