So! I've really been wanting to start a new character based on a classic norse valkyrie. But for the life of me I can't decide on a fitting class. I'd be planning to start in bg1 and run all the way through to ToB... but...
Paladins just seem a bit too.. knightly? A bit too 'ye old english'. But other than that I guess they fit. What's the order of the radiant heart like in BG2? I've never had a pally before so I've no idea, is it very.. knight-ish?
A Barbarian sounds good too, but then aren't they a little too, um, barbaric? I can't much imagine a valkyrie going in to 'rage' every battle.
A Cleric? They're a bit too casterly. Maybe a cleric of helm? Maybe a fighter/cleric?
I was thinking of going with northern/valkyrie themed gear. So stuff like Boots of the North, Runehammer etc. (I can't think of any more off the top of my head.. maybe white dragon plate?) Although if there's a nice spear with an in game description that I could fit in to a Valkyrie, that would be nice ^^ I don't mind if the gear isn't the best, as long as it's half-playable.
So what would you do!? I'm going through a million things in my head and not getting anywhere, it would be good to hear somebody elses point of view
