Shaman as my only divine caster: great idea, or the greatest idea?
It’s been a while since I’ve played Icewind Dale (last time I did was before the 2.0 update), and have been getting that itch to get stuck in again. So, I’ve been contemplating what party I’ll be throwing together to brave the frozen North once more.
Now, I remember from my last play through that Druids have some very fun spells in IWD that they don’t get in the Baldur’s Gate Games. Spontaneously casting Wall of Moonlight or Unicorn Horn sounds good, so a Shaman sounds like a good time (likely a half-orc who prefers swinging an axe to dancing).
My main question is, would I be okay with just a shaman + potions as far as keeping my party from not dying? Or is a cleric absolutely essential to getting through IWD in one piece?
