New Premium Module: Tyrants of the Moonsea! Read More
I really haven't played with any mods outside of Tweaks yet. I'm looking to up the difficulty a notch from Insane, though. I've heard a lot of good things about some of the mods out there that do just this, but I'm wondering if I'd be better off doing a run on LoB first. I'm mostly hoping to do the LoB run for the Steam Acheesement and I'm thinking that the difficulty mods would be further down the natural difficulty progression path than the base LoB. However, I'm a bit concerned about some of the encounters vs a LoB run. Hi zoning into the Beholder Den in the Underdark with a six-person party - I'm looking at you, for instance. I'm hoping to hear from some of the more seasoned players that have beaten the complete (I say complete, instead of full, as I'm hoping to leave no quests and areas untouched that my party is capable of) EE Trilogy here. Am I wrong in thinking that it will be near impossible to beat a LoB run without permanently losing party members in a complete run? Would I be better off, perhaps, trying to up my game with some mods that change the AI and such long before attempting the LoB run? From the base EE Trilogy on Insane difficulty, where would you recommend me next bumping the difficulty up?
