First of all, I started replaying the game some weeks ago (I used to play it as a kid but it's been years since then) and I know the basics but many things are new to me. I'm playing an evil party with the 'standard' companions that are supposed to be the ideal evil group: PC (mage), Dorn, Korgan, Viconia, Edwin and Hexxat.
The thing is, I'm currently at the Haer'Dalis quest and I plan to add him and remove Korgan, which is my main tank. I know Korgan is probably the best at it but I prefer the rp value and I really like Haer so, here's my main question:
Will I be okay with Dorn and HD as the only frontliners? I've made my research in the forums and read that HD can be an efficient tank with the proper defensive spells and defensive spin, but I remember him being very squishy though. And I know Dorn is more focused on dealing damage than tanking it, but he can wear plate and as a blackguard he is kinda bulky I guess?
I think I won't have much problem at the early stages of the game but I'm more concerned about future encounters with the big bosses. Back when I played the game I never got past spellhold because I tend to get bored of the current party and restart the game again and again lol, so I don't know if I will need a 'true tank' to stand a chance against the final baddies.
So the final party I'd be playing would be: PC mage, Dorn, Haer'Dalis, Viconia, Edwin and Hexxat. Opinions? Any help on how to build them (especially Dorn and HD) will be much appreciated!
