I've played through bgee and bg2ee multiple times with multiple partys and pc's. This time I'm taking a multi fighter/cleric (no duel class pushing please). I'm starting in bg2ee as I can't bring my self to play through bgee again it's just to boring. Will this hinder my playthrough as I won't get the tomes, extra exp, and helm of baldarun.
Now main question my party will be:
Pc fighter/cleric dw flails
Minsc dw axes and maces --> ( Mr tob possibly)
Keldorn 2 hander for you know what (mr tob possibly)
Jaheria scimitar and shield or staves/ spears undecided
Jan needed for thieving and back up mage plus I want some traps
Now the real question rp aside do i take nalia through till the end or switch for imoen I've beat the game so taking imoen for that is irrelevant I honestly just do not know who is the strongwe npc as a mage. Nalia will be imho a little more advanced as I have spent so much time with her and her spellbook will be tailored to my needs. I'm stumped.
Other possible issues I have is know one using long swords or war hammers which I would like to have. Katanas I can live without I find them over rated anyways. This will be my final playthrough for a bit as I want to play some other games and want to make the most of it.
Was thinking about 2 created chars from multi player and 4 npcs but on that note i would probably add a fighter/thief aswell but then I'm short a caster due to not needing jan. This way I could add in a dw for long swords and hammers or katanas.
