Dual to Cleric! This is he before any of the tomes, save CHA, oh, and CON. Can I make it through the entire BG saga without pushing the button? It seems like a sin not to play such a great roll.

    Clerics are probably the class that gain the least from high levels, so from a mechanics standpoint you're almost certainly better off remaining a Stalker. If that helps any. :)

    Great roll, though! Solid exceptional strength to boot!

    Stalker-Cleric is the unsung hero of dual classing. DO IT. You even have the correct proficiency.

    Looks like rangers are built for better rolls. Do rangers still get their Druid spells dualed into cleric in current version?

    Only up to level 3. But you can enable the old behavior and give them all the Druid spells by editing your Baldur.lua file:
    SetPrivateProfileString('Game Options','Cleric Ranger Spells','1')Just replace the 1 with 0.

    Assuming you dual at level 13 it's like Fighter/Cleric multiclass but with Hide in Shadow and x3 Backstab. You also get Haste, Prot. from n. Missiles and Minor Spell Deflection added to your priest(i.e. the one benefitting from all the extra spell slots from +6 Wisdom you'll get through the saga) spellbook at level 3. Oh and you get the first three levels of Druid spells too.

    The Stalker armor limitation doesn't matter, the game loves to give studded leathers crazy enchantment levels(like +6) to make them almost equal to (full) plates.

    That is both a magnificent set of stats and a magnificent portrait! I say keep going as a Stalker, because it's just a cool class. Clerics do not take overlong to level up, so if you still wanted to dual into the class somewhere in late SoA, you wouldn't have too much downtime.

    Incidentally, what is the artwork that you use for the BG interface? It looks awesome!

    That's the Siege of Dragonspear UI.

    Stalker>Clerics are the best Ranger>Cleric duals, no doubt. Not only are studded leathers almost as good as full plates in the long run, (though it's never as close as it looks, because full plates get crazy-good modifiers), but if you plan on sneaking you can't wear anything heavier than studded leather anyway. So the armor restriction is literally not even a restriction.

    The problem for me is trading fighter HLAs for cleric HLAs, which is a definite step down. That, and the level 13 dual takes an awful long time to complete. Ranger/Cleric is one of those combos where I feel like the duals are just flat-out worse than the multi.

    (Could be worse; I don't know if it was ever patched, but there was a bug with assigning proficiency points that made it so if you dualed an Archer to a Cleric and didn't waste a lot of proficiencies in the process, you wouldn't be able to level up past 19 as a Cleric.)
