Really bored, need some input

Postby EternalKnight » Sun Jul 22, 2001 1:34 am

Hey, can you believe it? I still haven't finished SoA but I want to start a solo character anyways to make things interesting and I want to do it with an unorthodox character. What do you guys suggest? I'm open to just about everything and I don't want to finish the game right now with a party, I think it'd make it more challenging with a solo! Well, thanks for the input

try something fun.
Like assassin or avenger druid. Those are the 2 most fun classes in my opinion.

Try to solo a single class wizard slayer, avenger or a beast master. These should be quit challenging :) .

If you like walking around invisible all the time and killing everything in one blow, then Assassin is for you.

If you like magic, you could try Cleric/Mage (dual or multi).

If you like really versatile characters, try Ranger/Cleric, Swashbuckler/Cleric or Swashbuckler/Mage.

not original but ok:

for real fun try Assassin! :D :D
it is a really fun clas to play.

And for real power try Ranger/Cleric i love this clas as much as the assassin clas.

Although I haven't tried it myself, I bet the Swashbuckler would be a really fun class to solo with.

Uhmm...

Wizard Slayer-Mage? Would be "fun" if he couldn't even use scrolls...

Beastmaster-Cleric should also be original.

Halfling Berserker would certainly be a novelty. :D

be a thief! they make decent fighters too, along with all the nice abilities they got, also duel to a mage, or somehow get these spells so you won't be permanantly screwed:

Zone of sweet air
dispel magic
breach
True sight

and later on, in TOB, make sure to get spellstrike.


have fun!

Be an Archer. That could be challenging.

Ok, cool guys. Hey, I want to do a no reloads no saves with an original character, have started with a Swashbuckler, it's hard, they can't hit worth anything! I have swing for like 5 min, and it's really hard with out spells to memorize (easy experience).

A pure swashbuckler would be cool all the way to the end of ToB.

The use any item would allow you to cast spells :) Who needs spellcasters? :D
Cartoon Law III
Any body passing through solid matter will leave a perforation conforming to its perimeter. Also called the silhouette of passage, this phenomenon is the speciality of victims of directed-pressure explosions and of reckless cowards who are so eager to escape that they exit directly through the wall of a house, leaving a cookie-cutout-perfect hole. The threat of skunks or matrimony often catalyzes this reaction.
