I know how you feel EXACTLY. I've been on the verge of finishing the game SEVERAL times but always restarted due to some dissatisfaction with my party or my class. In the end, I used this party (after restarting god knows how many times) I use a 5 party group to make room for quest npcs. -Stalker(me...

Good and evil can only be defined if one has a fixed moral reference point. For example, our current society uses religious values predominantly, Christian values to define what is right and what is wrong. Such a standpoint was duplicated to some extent to RPGs. But you have to ask, do drow consider...

You might want to put less emphasis on certain skills like lockpicking and find traps since there are items that can augment this readily.

IIRC, Roman expansion eastward was halted by the horsemen of Parthia. Just like the Mongols, they were excellent horsemen, weidling spears, bows and wearing light chain-type armor. The rigid and slow moving formations of the Roman legion were no match for them. I think a confrontation between the Mo...

Sometimes efreets do change into gaseous forms to "regenerate". In this form they're invulnerable to any attack I know of. In the guarded compound (temple district) When I fight off the summoned monsters, there's an efreeti with em. There was a time when I couldnt kill it at all, because when near d...

Stalkers! IMHO the coolest PURE class in the game. I don't really go for multi or dual classing, I find them cheezy (IMHO) Pros: Natural dual wield (2 stars) Specialize with any weapon They can sneak/hide They can backstab ! They can cast druid spells along with haste, protection from normal missles...

Polearms (halberds, pikes etc..) historically, are used more for defensive purposes by a group of guards. For example, 2 people with polearms guarding a doorway (classic setup) can stand side by side holding their pikes forward to prevent their enemies from rushing the doorway. The long bladed poles...

Human Stalker :)
I love that class

They can:
-Hide in shadows at +20%
-Backstab (a bit less powerful than a thief, but can definatley connect more often due to better THAC0)
-Can dual wield for those close encounters
**or**
-Switch to bows if things get hairy
-Can cast healing and support spells

I'd hate to throw a wrench into your plan But I'm thinking a berserker cleric would be the best combination since both can wear plate class armor and dual wield. Since the most powerful weapon in the game is a hammer, it'll fit in quite nicely. Plus, a lot of cleric spells are defensive/enhancement ...

GO FOR STALKER!!! I dunno, I've played several classes but I always go back to my dear 'ol stalker.

Just a lil observation. Won't this party be a lil short on healing? I mean, you have a lot of meleers that means most of your party will be goin toe to toe against most of your foes. That'll involve a lot of combat healing with mass cures. I'd make the barbarian into a berserker cleric, or maybe eve...

It isn't appropriate to judge a classes power based purely on the amount of damage that can be dealt in a single round. That's just part of the larger equation of overall power. One must also consider endurance, survivability and adaptability. I like the umberhulk example moriveth posted, a single h...

I think there's plenty of basis for changing Viconia into a chaotic good character. From some of the conversations the romance plot with Viconia reveals, there is more good in her than what she initially lets on. There's her revulsion of some of the Drow's horrible ways, the love for her brother who...
