Ok, I know I am not really a new player, but a friend of mine who only played the original game twice has decided to join me and try the enhanced versions.
I want him to have a fun experience, while not being overwhelmed by my metaknowledge. How would you suggest we should approach our MP game ?
- he told me he wants a "user friendly" character to start, so he'll probably be some kind of frontline fighter or something
- I want to be a good support character and prevent him from dying from the back without breaking immersion and stopping him before every encounter because I happen to know exactly what we are facing. I am thinking some kind of cleric, maybe a multi (cleric/thief or cleric/mage ?)
- we'll probably be recruiting one or two NPC's along the way but more to explore their quests/characters than for party balance purposes.
I would really like your input on how to "tone down" my metaknowledge and which character you would recommend for me as the best support character (he'll be the Bhaalspawn, I'll be his own Gorion except not ending up dead after two minutes of gameplay).
