I'm doing an SCS+Ascension solo run, and my F/M reached the XP cap at F level 24 and M level 20.
I find capping XP an extremely boring thing to happen in BG, so when I reached Chapter 5, I thought it was time to try something new: at the gates of Ust Natha I simply said I was an ally of Adalon.
Of course after dispatching the guard and entering the city, every single drow was hostile. The following battle was interesting. When I eventually had to retreat to Adalon's lair, I discovered enemies wouldn't follow me there - I wonder why =] - and I could rest, cheesy but necessary I think.
My tactics consisted basically of summoning Simulacrum, and have him summon Planetaar (in SCS Mage's HLA are not Level 9 spells but Innate Talents). Both Simu and I would GWW drow in large scales, both Celestial Furies striking lightning and stunning our enemies. Planetaar would always have Globe around her, and a few Earthquakes too. Also unluckly for the poor drow, their Magic Resistances did nothing against my Dragon's Breath, which helped a lot when Planetaar, Simu and I became very surrounded.
Balors were challenging, so before my 2nd rest I prepared myself to become immune to fire.
I found very interesting that, during the battle, two additional and brand new Matron Mothers came. Supposedly from another city or something, because they came in through Natha's entrance.
After many dozens were dead, it was a simple matter to get the eggs back and get out of the Underdark.Moderator note:
