I'm playing as a solo rogue 12/assassin X/shadow dancer 1. Very strong build, pretty cheesy. I just wanna see the plot stuff for now, having never played. I'm soloing. (I've solo'd SCS BG–BG2: ToB.)
But when defending The Seer, I can't do a thing. I can one-shot enemies one every round no problem, but there are just too many to kill before they kill The Seer in two rounds. And I defeated all the possible allies! This was the smallest war party!
I understand this is a bit niche, but is it actually supposed to be this tough?
The "squads" I defended with don't actually do much. Also, they don't attack unless they're attacked. They're overwhelmed almost immediately. Also, it seems like any progress you make in defending those coming through the gate doesn't matter at all compared to the huge (and tougher) group that come through the docks. Eventually I had to make The Seer invincible to get past it all. I know it's probably the AoE element.
I just wanted to relate how I was surprised by the difficulty here. Every other encounter up to this point was a cakewalk.
Are the rebels usually such pushovers, or is that some EE bug?
