I'm looking for some advice on my HoF (Insane - Level 1) setup.
Here's my party:
Human Cavalier (longswords, two-weapon style)
Human Berserker (flails, two-weapon style)
Human Berserker (hammers, two-weapon style)
Half-Orf Fighter/Thief (longbow, longswords)
Sorcerer and F/T are at level 4 and 4/4. Everyone else is at level 5. I plan to dual-class the berserkers to clerics at level 7.
Sorcerer's spells are Level 1: Magic Missile, Identify, Burning Hands. Level 2: Melf's Acid Arrow (I suspect this may be the weak link.)
I'm at the orc cave in the prologue. I struggled with the first major fight, had to re-load a few times, but beat it. I'm at the last fight in the orc cave, and the ogres crush my front-liners quickly. I can't kill one of them before they kill one of mine, and get the other two down to about half health.
My usual tactic is to have the front-liners melee, Skald sings, F/T and Sorcerer double-up on one of my front-liners' targets with arrows and spells.
What am I doing wrong?
