I'm planning a Trilogy playthrough. All tactical mods possible, minimal (hopefully no-) reload, maximum difficulty. And I want to attempt the Siege of Ust Natha. I also want to experience the EE content (which I've never played before). How does the following team sound?
Korgan: Dwarven Defender
Damage resistance tank, awesome saves, general enemy distractor, and epic bants. (In BG1 I'll take a Berserker Kagain.)
I'll need a Cleric, but without Mage spells they are weak in SCS and other tactical formulations, and I'll need Fighter melee power. Viconia rocks as an original character, plus she has that incredible 65% Magic Resistance.
Dorn Il-Khan: F/D
The first truly unorthodox choice. I want a F/D for the extra heals, high-level shape-shifting and damage resistance, plus other decent tanking/buffing/disabling spells. I want an evil crew, so D fits. What do you think? Can you picture him as a F/D? Do you have a better suggestion?
I don't know what race she was supposed to be, but I'm going to pretend it was Half-Elf, to allow this MC. I heard she's a bit Lara Croft-y, so I reckon it fits. Technically this MC is a slow-growing powerhouse, filling a lot of shoes and later utilising Mislead and backstabs to deal terrific damage. (In BG1 I'll take a Bounty Hunter Safana.)
His amulet coupled with the Sorcerer's spell-casting is simply ridiculous. I love his conversations, his quest, and his demeanour. He will focus on buffs and debuffs, winning the Mage chess game. (In BG1/SoD I'll take Baeloth, who has a similarly powerful ring, and whom I also want to experience!)
Charname: Dragon Disciple
I want a nuker, and I'm planning to use Wish resting. This guy will combine heavy damage spells, high-level Mage debuffs, and general self-protections, to stay alive and hit them where it hurts. It also gives me a chance to experience another of the EE classes. Moreover I find the idea of a dragon heritage entirely too fitting for the future successor of Bhaal. Starting with 18 CON will lead to regeneration by the end of BG1. Fire Resist./Regen. really doesn't hurt, either!
So there's the plan. I would be deeply appreciative if you have any thoughts or suggestions. Does Dorn fit F/D? Is the overall class synergy OK? Do you have a better suggestion for Charname? I was also considering Shaman or Shadowdancer, how would they compare in the above context?
