Shapeshifter/Monk dual class question
Two of my friends and I are planning to run through all the Baldurs Gate games and expansion. We're all fairly experienced with the series. I really want to play a Shapeshifter druid (turning into a werewolf and tearing into people sounds awesome) but I hear it has some issues with it. I'm really more interested in the werewolf shifting than the druid abilities, so I was wondering if dual classing monk would help with the werewolves unarmed damage and AC. Don't monks get the ability to hit creatures immune to non-magic weapons? Would that ability work with werewolf claws?
Is this a good idea or not. I think I would rather start shifter for the werewolf powers, but maybe someone more experienced with builds can help me out.
1) Is this a bad idea?
2) How many levels of each class should I take before dualing over?
3) What items would work for this build?
