The activity on GB for NWN2 caused me to start playing again. My character (OC) is a cleric/bard/RDD.. So that's one tank. Elanee is going to take dino companion and zen archery and be: Archer Buffer Caster Main tank, dino off tank to protect other ranged characters as an animal form Grobnar is going to be an AOE friendly ranged caster (I don't like puppet and Quara will blow us to kingdom come... never tried sand... (I'm not sure on taking Grobnar) Neeshka is going to be a flanker but the main problem I've had with her would be taking too much damage. I wonder if I could give her shield profiency and use a light shield with +3/4 enhancement. That would reduce hits by 20-25 percent. Only -1 on skills checks. I'll also use her as an archer at times. I looked up shields, but I'm not sure what the best is. Zalantar gets +2 AC but does not stack with enhancements unfortunately. Adamantium is supposed to give 1 DR Usually I give her Dual Wielding, but the biggest problem I have with her is keeping her alive. She is great except for the hardest battles she goes down. She'll often have: barkskin, protection from evil to get two other forms of AC. So maybe level 6 shield level 9 rapier focus level 10 ?? level 12 shortbow focus level 13 ?? level 15 ?? level 16 ?? level 18 ?? level 19 ??
