Creating the Perfect Party in Shadows of Amn
Perfect Party #9
I think that the perfect party is comprised of the
three evil characters in the game. Following this
guide you have a choice on the PC. For my main
character I would be a human sorcerer. You could also
be a monk or another fighter depending on how you like
to play. I think that magic heavy parties have the
potential to be the most powerful. If your like me
and don't mind a little solo, then take your main
character alone through Irenicus' dungeoun (or take
along Imoen for traps). As soon as you get out of the
dungeon, go pick up Korgan from the Copper Coronet.
Korgan is arguably the best tank in the game. He has
the most hp, and he tends to deal out the most damage
given the proper weapons. Which weapons he uses are
up to you. There are tons of posts on weapons and he
can be good with almost any combination. I do
recommend that he carry along a throwing awe as a side
weapon. That can take care of your ranged attack
Next, head to the Government District to pick
up Viconia. Being the only pure cleric in the game,
Viconia is the best at what she does. Do not use
Viconia as a fighter. Keep her for healing Korgan and
casting spells. I would not equip her with ultra
powerful weapons. Just try to get her AC up as high
as possible with a good shield and armor.
Once you have Korgan and Viconia head to the Docks
district and do Maevar's thief guild quest to get
Edwin. Edwin has an amulet that lets him cast 2 extra
spells per level, which gives him by far the most
spells. Now you're ready to go take on the world.
With this party I took out Fikraag with everyone
between levels 10-12 fairly easily with no reload.
Also remember that with Korgans enrage ability
activated he is immune to Kangaax imprisonment (get
that ring of Gaxx asap!).
In general, just remember to use Korgan and summons to
soak up melee damage while the spell casters take care
of everything from a distance.
