One great thing about Baldur's Gate is that the game provides plenty of opportunities to tackle high level encounters that seriously outmatch you. But if you know the game well, you can often plan all kinds of elaborate strategies to take down overwhelming odds and claim all that butt-kicking loot and xp early. But what about victories due to just sheer dumb luck?
In my case, I had a Cavalier, Imoen, Jaheira, Khalid, and Neera; all of 2nd level or lower and with no magic weapons. South of Beregost, I ran into a vampiric wolf (I think was a random encounter?), who requires magic weapons to injure.
With sheer luck, Neera wild surged (wasn't even using the dweomer) which resulted in holding both herself and the vampiric wolf. Jaheira than used her only Shillelagh spell memorized to make a +1 club and proceeded to beat the thing to death (since it was held, every attack hit..)
2,000 xp and feeling epic!
Anyone else have a particularly memorable victory due to dumb luck? (as an aside, my Charname for this playthrough rolled 97 total stats first try, with 18/98 STR... maybe she worships Tymora?
