New Premium Module: Tyrants of the Moonsea! Read More
So I recently got both the enhanced editions for Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 off of Steam and with some free time coming up I've decided I'm going to try to play through the whole series, from the original to the end of Throne of Bhaal. Now, I'm not exactly new to the series; Baldur's Gate 2 was actually one of the first games I ever played. However it has been some time since I last played and so I'm curious to hear what other people's thoughts are.
While just about every class looks interesting I think I want to try this run with either a Bard, specifically a Blade, or a Sorcerer. To me they make some of the most "sense" given your character's background and they each offer some fun options. The Blade brings a lot of variety from swords to magic as well what is still a decent lore value, so I might be able to save money/magic on identify. Whereas from what I understand the Sorcerer can wield phenomenal cosmic power when built right, and who doesn't enjoy that? So between these two, which would you prefer and why?
