No way.... No way.
I can kill up to three of them with buffed up swords..
But this lair is simply unbeliavable now...
I tried everything, every kind of prebuffing (yes, you heard me!!),
I simply cannot kill *SIX* of those "improved" things at the same
time (especially when three of them are Ulitharids)
Maybe I'll try again with Sola in the party
I miss my kensai/mage
SOLA MOD SPOILERS:
Jaheira can do it! Buff her with potions to get 25 dex and int, ring of free action, sheild of harmony, greenstone amulet, speed potions/boots (reequip ring of free action afterwards). Lock every one else in one of the cells (otherwise they try and join the fight when the psionic effect that damages everyone goes off- don't turn ai off as the mfs go invisible so often you don't want to have to keep retargetting).
Keep reactivating greenstone periodically as there's no indication that its worn off. You can find one in beholder tunnels with 15 charges and I used about 9. Don't run away! Well don't go out of sight or they DD to the rest of your party
If you're int starts getting low just circle them till it goes back up. Gnasher is a good weapon of choice because of the increased poison every time you hit.
Keep an eye on the damage the rest of the party is taking in the cell because of that new psionic (ballistic?) and use potions of healing - it can be very damaging.
remember: do not run away or use fog of war tricks (like cloud kill)
Greenstone amulet is the key though as it blocks the mfs new wing buffet/stun attack which can be deadly. I also read that they can do emotion:kill like the githyanki do to that sailor during the sea ambush but I haven't seen it yet.
Its frantic stuff but very rewarding once you've done it...but not in terms of xp as many of the mfs dd away for ever when thet get too wounded
