Bringing Cullen out into the field was the worst decision in Inquisition. He aggroed every single enemy he could at once, and made the quest way more difficult than it ought to have been. It left me questioning his position as commander altogether as tactics clearly are not among his skills. At all.
Better then what happened to me. He facing the door to the area with his weapon drawn, not helping with the courtyard fights at all until we went into the next room. Made me quest what my inquis saw in him.
HIT EVERYTHING YOU CAN INCLUDING THAT NUG!!!

But it's easier to hit something if they're all standing right next to you.
To be fair, this is the man who couldn't identify Anders, Merril, and Bethany/Hawke as mages... even when they used magic right in front of him.
@randomgirlk23: Honestly, I would prefer that. Not helping is better than aggroing every possible enemy at once.
@4mation: Is lyrium blindness a thing? And more importantly, why is this man in charge of our armies at all?
Unfortunately really bad AI
I wonder what's worse: Cullen or Skyrim companions?
When can you ever bring him into battle more than in the Arbor Wilds? o.O
@Kain: If you side with the mages you will be able to bring him out into the field in the quest called Before the Dawn.
