With the current BG2EE build and current SCS, how can I reliably NOT be killed while attacking beholders and elder orbs?
- assume no Shield of Cheese [I mod it out] - assume full party [pick any NPCs] - bonus points to do it wihout a Berserker - if helpful, assume mage variant PC [Sorcerer, F/M etc.] - assume that you start in sight of the Beholder (i.e. no sending summons without risk)
-- [Note: I heard that Spell Shield used to protect against Beholder antimagic rays? Is that true? How about Spell Immunity: Abjuration? How about potions to lower saves? But what about an elder ord casting Imprisonment (and without a Rage available)? etc. etc.] --
