Creating the Perfect Party in Throne of Bhaal
Perfect Party #1
This is the Single Player group I have used all the way through Baldur's
Gate 2: SoA and ToB. First, my main character is a Kensai that I dualed to
Mage once he reached 9th level, who uses dual katanas (Dak'kon's Zerth Blade
and Celestial Fury. Also, improved Hindo's Doom for spell abilites). He
wears Vecna's Robes, Amulet of Power, and Ring of Gaxx.
Second person is
Minsc, dual-wielding Crom Faeyr and Flail of the Ages (with the Runehammer
for Undead). Third is Keldorn using Carsomyr (of course). Third is Imoen (a
decent mage though a level lower then the rest of group because of time lost
while in Asylum). Fourth is Nalia, also a good mage. Finally there is Aerie,
both a decent mage and cleric. Imoen and Nalia provide most of the wizardly
fire power while Aerie can cast just about any buff that your group would
need (and at high levels, can cast enough to buff entire group with
practically every buff such as Death Ward and Chaotic Commands).
Keldorn make very good tanks and weapons capable of hitting just about
anything. My main character acts as both fighter and wizard, using spells
such as Stoneskin, Mirror Image, Spirit Armor and most importantly Tenser's
Transformation to turn himself into a killing machine (though he doesn't
have the best weapons and sometimes can't hit all creatures). Wearing
Vecna's Robes and the Amulet of Power he can cast any needed emergency spell
(such as Breach, Lower Resistance, etc.) virtually instantaneously with
almost no chance of being interrupted.
This party is good aligned and there
is no friction between any of the members. Minsc often comments that he "is
in awe of Keldorn's ability to put the most righteous boot to evil's behind"
with Keldorn's return that Minsc "is truly a determined warrior of Good."
High praise coming from a Paladin.
