Hello everyone. I am a returning enthusiast, I played the original SoA many years back, and since I was quite young at the time, I made a paladin/cavalier I think. I followed the generally good path, I only remember that close to the end I changed alignment I think, because I had morphed too many times into a beast.
Now I bought BG2EE and I'd like to ask some general questions. You don't have to answer every question of course, any answer is great!
1) Subjective question: I think I would like to follow a more evil path this time. I've read on here that it can be more fulfilling. In what sense? What has your experience been? Isn't it true that the game is "suited" more for a good playthrough?
2) I was thinking of making an Assassin/mage type of character. What combo is good for this? Kensei/mage?
3) Since I also want to have magic, I am currently overwhelmed by the selection of spells available. Is there a guide somewhere which can help me understand what spells I can go for and which playstyle?
4) Another subjective question: Do you think it's worth playing BG1:EE? I've never played it, but thought it would be less interesting, because of the lower level battles. Of course I might be wrong, and the plot unfolding might be more than worth the lower levels.
Thank you all, this forum is really great.
