My New Party (stay on topic please)
I decided to take another run through SoA and ToB with The Darkest Day and another ton of Mods installed (ascension, tactics, battles, ease, refinements, etc).
For this new run, my party will consist of my PC (Sytze, an Archer=> a pure one this time, since there are already 3 mages
), Jaheira, Yoshimo/Immie, Tashia, Keldorn and either Jan or Haer’Dhalis.
I’m not sure who to take along; Jan or Dhalis. Considering my current party, who do you advice to take along?? I am playing a good party as you see, and I am considering to replace Keldorn by you-know-who in ToB. I decided not to take Minsc, but Keldorn. I always take Minsc and I think he doesn’t have as much dialogs as Jaheira, Tashia or Yoshimo for example, plus I never took Keldorn.
As for tactics, here is how it will be:
Sytze: Archer, deals massive damage. Plus I made him a special katana which also makes him useful in melee. However, most of the time, he will be shooting arrows, taking out the most powerful first and then making his way down.
-Weapon= Longbow: self-made item
Jaheira: Will be used mostly in melee. I’m giving her spells which makes her stronger (bless, holy powers, death ward, iron skin, righteous magic, etc). She will also have a few offensive spells (call on lightning, nature’s beauty, insect swarm, storm of vengeance, etc).
-Weapon= Scimitar: belm and item-upgrade mod scimitar)
Tashia: Sorceress, will take out mages. I will give her defensive spells, so she will be protected against spells from mages (spell turning, spell trap, stoneskin, mantle, protection from… spells, etc). And I will give her spells which will disable other mages (breach, pierce magic, r r of reversal, khelbens w w, etc)
-Weapon= Staff: SoM or item-upgrade staff or Longswords: Dayastar and Equalizer....I'm not sure yet.
Yoshimo/Immy: Yoshimo speaks for himself. However, he will be using longswords instead of katana’s.
I will give Imoen a combination of defensive (to upgrade her in battle) and offensive spells (like ADHW, harm, sunfire, etc). She will be send in melee often.
-Weapon= Longswords: not sure which
Keldorn: He is a Paladin and therefore will use 2-Handedswords. Will be in melee.
-Weapon= 2-Handed weapons: his personal sword and later the weapon which suits him best
Jan: Will mostly be used for backstabbing and spellcasting. For spells he will use illusion and confusing spells. This means he can help himself in battle and annoy the enemies
-Weapon= I will give him katana’s, so I have to change his profincies, etc a bit: CF and Kurosian’s sword
(Now, if I take Hear’Dhalis along, he will be using Katana’s and self-upgradeable spells. This means that Immie will be not be used in melee often and will be casting a lot more offensive spells.
-Weapon= See Jan)
Now, what do you think of this people?? Any advice on what to change?? A bit of input would be welcome
