Killing Thalantyr's flesh golems on your very first trip to the High Hedge
Every time I start a new game, I will contemplate trying to kill Thalantyr's two flesh golems before talking to him to make them neutral. They are, of course, worth a huge amount of XP, so they are a very tempting target. The problem, of course, is that they are incredibly dangerous for a half formed party of level 1-2 adventurers to try to deal with. Killing them after talking to Thalantyr would make him angry and cause you to lose access to what is probably the most useful store until you reach Baldur's Gate city, so it is not likely feasible to save these golems until a later level (unless you don't visit him at all until much later). I usually decide not to kill them at all for most of my runs.
So the question is, how do the rest of you deal with the prospect of killing the golems?
