Guys, hello everyone!
I asked a question for myself - what classes can do solo-poverty-insane runs (in vanilla EE versions)? Yes, with million of reloads of course:) Mostly I am interested in pure classes, and preferably no kits. And with original xp caps, and starting each of games separately (BG1, BG2, ToB). Yes, too stupid rules, I know (and additionally without avoiding important battles and without attacking blue characters, so talk first and then attack, also no cheese door tricks, etc). So, lets just put a little self-restrictions and fair play against too many bugs and flaws.
Anyway, sorcerer should be able to do it. Fighter definitely no. Ranger, paladin, barbarian no. Cleric and druid - probably yes, especially cleric. Thief and bard?...May be for some cases...assassin or bounty hunter (poison and traps)? Monk, probably the only fighter who can do it. I can imagine how he beats Sarevok (by some luck we fight 1 to 1 and using abilities). However...what he will do in ToB? Especially against Ravager...
So, my hope for the "trilogy" goes to Sorcerer, then Cleric and then Druid. Melissan can be easily beaten with harm (for Druid it takes may be 1 hours of reloads for each Melissan, Cleric can do it much faster with better THAC0). For Ravager they have Deva and energy blades. I didn't finish ToB yet, but hope it sould be doable.
Thus, some time ago I decided to start Cleric and Druid runs (just pure classes, so Shapeshifter and Totemics druid could be a different story). Or "runs". Since mostly it became two big pains. One smaller and one bigger.:) I tried to transfer the same stats to characters in BG2 and ToB, pretending that they continue the deal of the guys from BG1. Currently I closed BG2 by both classes. And in a half-way in BG1 and ToB. Honestly, I have no idea what to do with Sarevok in Druid game. To pray for domination of 2 Nymphs? Anyway, I see some light playing this style...I tried to understand each spell and tried to make use of it...I never would see a potential of these classes in a usual games. Though I still think that Druid is pretty pretty shitty and awkward, with mostly useless spells. Yea, Great Druid. And level up from 750000 to 1500000 and 3000000. And then you immediately get ten thousand 7 level spells...I think I felt more pain only soloing Wizard Slayer. He is already half-poverty.
Playing BG2, I again and again noted how many riddles and stories it has. So, I put one riddle here.:)
As for pure Druid, how he can beat Irenicus-Slayer?...You can try to do some tests. It is not necessary to kill the demons, but the big problem is regeneration. The rules also capped to 2995000 xp, which means only 2 spells of 6 level and 1 spell of 7 level. Any ideas how to beat him?:) In reasonable time (I would say around 20 reloads should be enough), but not in theory. I came to him around one year ago, but only recently found out how it is possible to beat him in practice.
