Maximum damage dealt would have to be a Kensai with Crom and FoA no? Don't know if that is the strongest though (no armor).

I've been thinking about trying out a multi thief/mage. They sound like alot of fun. How do you improve their THACO enough so they don't miss too much on backstabs? Thanks Having one or more bards singing improved bard song would help and high strength. Stack cleric holy symbols for 24 str with fir...

I am pretty sure that all slings get the str bonus as long as they are using ammo and not ghost bullets. This is with official patch only, not sure if G3 changes it.

Yes, it is possible to obtain two rings of wizardry in BGII. You can only use one per character however.

Original BG1 ring of wizardry + wild mage = much more fun though.

As philos stated, wands are your friend (you really learn this in BG1, they are so useful there). In particular, wand of spell striking allows you to cast breach on an enemy mage. The real useful thing about it is that you can target improved invisible characters with wands which is not possible in ...

I will second Miscreant. Can't use two RoW on the same character. One wizardry and one acuity is fine though. Who doesn't have more than one mage anyway :D (Unless you solo, but then you can use a Gaxx or something.)

The reason for not getting Mage HLAs is that a triple class will never get high enough level to cast 9th level spells. That said there are some Mage HLAs that don't require casting 9th level spells (like the bonus 6th, 7th, and 8th level spell HLAs). Are you running any patches? I think this was add...

You want to be primary an archer, so, if I were you, I would start as an thief with maxed Dex and at least 17 Str, max "find traps" and "open locks" and then immedietly dual to a generic archer. I would put my thief proficiency points in short and long swords and my fighter proficiency points in sm...

Shortbows over Longbows for sure. Shortbows, Crossbows, and Slings are really in a different class than Longbows.

They will but you can stay around 18 easily by adding and dropping viconia. Anyway Edwin was the only one who will leave from my party example, I am pretty sure Sarevok wont.

Even from a RP perspective I don't think you have to be evil to bring along the evil NPCs. You can drag Korgan on your good crusade with him kicking and cursing all the way but as long as he is getting his fair share of the loot, and you are accomplishing your goals then everyone is happy. As for wh...

You can also bring Jan and Haer'Dalis. They are neutral, so they do not mind you being evil. Haer'Dalis isn't a thief so that doesn't help lol. I can't imagine an evil party tolerating Jan's turnip jokes for more than a couple minutes . He only wanted 4 people anyway though so doesn't really matter...

Generic archer can dual to thief no problem. Or Fighter/Thief multi. Or Swash dual to Fighter. I don't really see the problem here. If your asking can you complete the game without a thief then sure you can but what are you gaining by using an archer over something with thief in it? A couple +to hit...
