I decided I would try and actually finish a full series run using SCS. I usually stop playing early in BG2 for whatever reason, but this time I have made it to chapter four.
It's been going mostly okay. I try to limit cheese, but TorGal needed to be pulled on his own.
This lich in the Asylum dungeon has completely roadblocked me for a day now. I am using the component that removed the party's equipment, and so the only magic weapon I have is this Spear +3.
The party: Charname (F11/M12), Jaheira (F11/D13), Minsc (R13), Anomen (F7/C14), Aerie (C11/M11), and Imoen (T7/M13).
Anomen is too low level to turn the lich, which I would have been quite happy doing at this point.
I thought I was being quite clever using Sanctuary and Divine Protection to tank his mob while casting Sunray. Lich is immune to that, of course.
I've tried baiting his spell arsenal out using Imoen's Mislead and Anomen's Sanctuary. Hard to tell if that's having any noticeable impact, he still wipes us out after.
I had to pull his mob away from him which I hate doing, but it essentially made no difference anyway, he has an army of summons.
I've tried using the F/M alone with Abjuration immunity, but he's got two spell strikes memorised.
What can I actually do.
No strategy too cheesy at this point. I'd CTRL-Y him but I know it'll ruin the run for me and I'd quit soon after.
