So i'm finishing up my Blade (great class) play through and i'm looking for another class. I'm someone that doesn't really like Dual/Multi class characters. i like to keep it single. (thus the blade instead of a fighter/mage) i'm also the kind of guy that likes to maintain some sense of RP, which is why i haven't just rolled a Paladin. the way i play Charname and the NPCs i congregate with just dont make sense to me for a paladin and so i cant play one. Here are the options i am considering
Stalker - NG Human - This would be my fighter/thief analog. Good stealth, great fighting ability with a reasonably good backstab (sure the multiplier is lower but i seem to find myself doing just as much damage, not sure if its a strength or warrior thing). i only wish it had traps (which would have made sense for a ranger imo) i hear the stronghold is interesting
Fighter - Basic single class fighter. i am very curious to try the Fighter stronghold quests (never done them before) and i figure since i always play with a full group sometimes you dont need CHARNAME to do everything, just one thing really well. in this case fight.
Thief (not sure which) - Hexxat is ok, but i don't like her as much as i hoped i would, because of that i find myself wondering who i should be using for a thief (i don't like Yoshimo's traitorous ass, or Jan and Nalia just isnt up for it) so a Charname thief would make sense. my inital feeling is swashbuckler as he would be a good fighter with traps, but no backstab. the Ying to a stalker's Yang. i've never done a shadowdancer or assassin playthrough but i am open to suggestions
So what do my brothers and sisters of the BG board suggest
(note i voted other as apparently i cant see the results without voting myself)
