Hi all, first time here.
I feel like I owe it to myself to finish the entire saga at least once, and TOB is the last thing in there (except SOD, I didn't realize I'd be looking back again to the series.)
I ran a duology run on BG:EE to SOA with a berserker/mage charname on a full party. Lately, I've been asking around steam and reddit to see what class I can do that would suit a full trilogy run for me, either party or trying out a proper solo run. After realizing I'd just keep asking around without getting anywhere, I might as well just go for a TOB run and experience the story. A compromise between solo and full party by managing bhaalspawn children only since they (from my understanding) are primarily the central characters to the plot. Will be playing on Core Rules or maybe normal if you guys think I'll get rekt.
On to my proposed charname. I've been wondering if this is doable for me with say, a pure Kensai Charname (I figured dualling on TOB would be so tedious due to the downtime unless catching up is easy in the next hour without cheesing)
What's a decent stat roll for him? I've got an obsession with seeing at least 90 but so far this drags out a supposed playtime for me and I end up getting bored.
Also, I want to... kinda roleplay into the sword saint aspect of the kensai and am looking into katanas lol, is it mandatory/optimal for me to wield a preferred weapon + belm/kundane or can I roll with a katana + offhand FoA? If so, can I still get celestial fury? is the katana in my back of holding good enough for a few main quests?
Will I get rekt for aspiring to try to take on TOB without prior knowledge + with just Sarevok and Imoen in my party? I had some prior gameplay to TOB with my berserker/mage, I thought it tedious to have those length fights
with mages and I gave up on my quest to hunt down the giant bhaalspawn sibling.
Edit: I don't mind suggestions for other classes as well tbh. Maybe fighter/cleric or dualling to Kensai/Cleric to cover the bases?
