Any way to Buff Vicky in this one?

I'm new to SOD but have played BG 1 and 2. From that, I've become a pretty avid Viconia fan.

In those, I would generally find a strength item, get her good armor and a shield and then a good cleric weapon and let her join the front lines.

Seems to be more of a challenge here in SOD.

Aside from the temporary spell buffs, any kit available to pump up those delicate Drow muscles of hers a bit in SOD ?

    if you hold onto the gauntlets of ogre power and/or the belt of 19 STR from rasaad's quest in bg1, you can import those items over to SoD and give her one of those

    My previous play throughs were on IOS and now I am on Android so I think the export / import option is out the window for me here.

    Thanks for your input regardless.

    I'll also take that as confirmation that there are no "native" strength items in SOD ?

    ah, i thought you were starting in bg1 first before going into SoD, if done that way, then when your character comes over to SoD you can have just had those items in your inventory at the time

    and as far as strength items in SoD im not 100% sure if there is, since i've only played SoD twice

    I don't think there is much. There is the Uncursed Staff, a +1 staff that gives you 18 STR, but this is basically useless because it also lowers your Thaco by 2 and only does 1D6-2 damage. If you equip her with it she will be able to wear decent armour but she will be stuck with using a lousy weapon.

    It might work if you put the staff in one of her weapon slots and then give her a better weapon to use in the other weapon slot. It may be that she will keep the STR bonus even though she is not actually swinging the staff. I haven't actually tried this and I am not sure if it would work.

    Worth a look Permidion .... thanks.

    If not, I may need to use her more in the back lines for casting and slings ...

    Not so happy about that option - as good front line tanks in this installment seem quite scarce.

  • ThacoBellThacoBell Member Posts: 7,035
    Minsc is a good tank. You could build him for that role.

  • DonCzirrDonCzirr Member Posts: 73
    Yep - got him - but I usually like to go with 2 tanks in the front. One more of a damage dealer and the other as a true tank.

    At the moment I have:

    me (Sorcerer)
    Minsc
    Dynaheir
    Viconia
    Safana
    and for now, Corwin

    I intend to swap out Corwin as soon as Dorn is available ... but for now her ranged stats seem nice.

    Perhaps I'll just have Vicky whip up a couple of skels to bolster the front lines till Dorn comes onboard .....
