this was my first run of SOA, it was great and definitely better than i expected it would be and going to start TOB,I realised we get a new warrior character and saw that he is grandmaster at 2handed weapon and great stats and previous party members being available so i am hesitant about who to choose for this playthrough
my party for SOA was CHARNAME Necromancer, Imoen(pure thief) , Minsc , Jahira, Vicona and Haer'dalis
Imoen was for scouting ahead,setting traps and backstabbing mages and firing from shortbow
Minsc main tank+ DD ( dual wielding FOA+mace of disruption)
CHARNAME : mainly debuffs and death magic + summoning fiends ( kinda RPing an evil OP necromancer)
Haer'dalis : dual wield shortswords , combat buffs and illusions , main DD ( buffed up with offensive spin + tenser transformation + cleric's champion strength reaching -17 thaco main hand vs irenicus)
Viconia (buffing party before battle,summoning skeletons,aerial servants, true sight and champions strength)
Jahira i am pretty bad at using her , i use her mainly for insect plague and heals
1)now would 1 arcane caster + haerdalis casting high level spells via scrolls enough in ToB since i heard that mages are very important in ToB?
2)imoen is a single class thief is she going to be underpowered? she was pretty useless vs irenicus,dragons and liches , will there be any redeeming qualities for her? or shall i replace her for jan jansen? i think jan is very funny and has arcane power ,however i like imoen as well and since she is charname's sister it would be nice if i had her along
3)Jahira , she still doesnt have level 7 priest spells and tbh so far viconia has been alot better at everything. i am aware i am not using her efficently apart from her op insect plague which helps alot vs mages
minsc and boo, he is very likeable and funny but the new warrior looks badass , i don't know which should i pick, also the idea of doing this playthrough with imoen and sarevok is kinda nice. i need to pick 2 characters from jahira,minsc and the new warrior
would a party of charname,minsc,jahira,viconia,haer'dalis and pure thief imoen do well?
