I've suffered from restartitis, and after taking my Dwarven F/C through BG1, and then BG 2 through almost all of the optional quests of Chapter 2 and then all the way to the underdark, suddenly decided I'd really like to go through the entire thing with a monk. (I played the original BG when it came out, but not BG2 until EE on Ipad.) I finished BG1EE with the monk, and now I'm just started on 2 with him.
Incidentally, I would feel bad about the unintended ac bonus (he starts with a -4 naked) if there was a wisdom bonus to ac or an ability to wear any type of robe or shirt that might help with ac. I suspect his ac will be ridiculous eventually, but the improper ac now just makes him somewhat competitive in my mind. The 19 strenth doesn't hurt on that front either.
I'm trying to figure out how to build Mazzy and Anomen weapon proficiency and fighting style wise.
My party will be:
Imoen-Nalia-Imoen (with a goal to get her back somewhat quickly)
(I'm not even sure who I'm going to drop to do some of the quests like Rasaad's and Valygars, both of which I'd like to do. Jaheira makes the most sense, but I'd like to do her romance and not mess it up by dropping her.)
I intend to get Mazzy quickly so I can work on her melee weapons. I suspect it makes sense for either her or Anomen to use the flail of ages, but am unsure which and what melee weapon proficiencies make the most sense to make each strong. I'm also still trying to do a run without looking things up to get ideal weapons, so may miss certain good ones. Should Mazzy be two handed sword (which seems ridiculous) to avoid having to switch back and forth between ranged and two weapon? Should she be using the Flail of Ages for maximum efficiency? Opinions are very welcome.
