I am returning to the game after a long hiatus. I managed to get running on my Macbook Pro using Crossover. Funny, the Windows version actually runs better on Snow Leopard. Anyhow, my most of my run throughs in the past my PC was some kind of Druid. Either K/D, B/D, Avenger/Fighter, Totemic/Fighter, of Shapeshifter. I tried other classes, but only ever completed SoA (never completed ToB) with Druid based character. This time I decided to try a Blade. I have always like characters that can do a little bit of this and a little bit of that and maybe not be the typical uber-powergamer class. I am a litte ways into CH2. My Blade is: Level 11 13(19 with belt) 18 16 18 10 15 Scimitar * Dual Wield *** Scimitar+1 in both hands Party is Minsc, Jaheira, Nalia, and Aerie. My frustration is the Blade is not hitting much. He only has 17 kills (13%), whereas Minsc ha 52 (35%), Nalia 41 (30%) and even Aerie is right on my toes at 11 (11%). My character has held up pretty well with a combo of Stoneskin and Spirit Armor and other protections, but he is definitely no "butt-kickin' for goodness". When does the Blade get to the point that it starts dealing more damage and racking up some kills? I have been using Offensive Spin. I was thinking maybe a similar build of a Swash (10) --> Mage might be better?
