so i have started my first IWD:EE playthrough ... latest patch, almost no mods (npc portraits, some selected bgTweaks).
i am an experienced infinity engine player, and usually play with SCSI in baldurs gate games.
for icewind dale, i started playing on highest difficulty by slider, but not (yet) heart of fury mode. my characters started level 1, and they may be slightly on the power gamers side stats-wise but not "too much". it's a dwarven defender, ghost hunter, priest of tempus, fighter/thief, avenger druid and illusionist.
I now played to the beginning of kresselaks tomb (his main crypt, beginning of it), and my characters are all evel 4-5 now, kicking undead butts like hell ... well it's so easy defacto don't ever have to reload, i don't need buffs or any special tactics ... just rush in, hit and wait ... that takes the challenge out of the game to a level i don't enjoy playing, and i have the impression it's getting "worse" the further i advance ...
so am i doing somthing "wrong"? am i leveling up too fast (and why)? should i play heart of fury with my low-level chars (i do like a challenge but don't like "prove of concept" gaming)? should i switch back to baldurs gate games and wait until something like SCSI comes out for IWD:EE?
thanks for your advise
