Soooo, I remember having a lot of fun starting in BG2 with a lvl 7 fighter, dual classing into wizard, and eventually unlocking the Tenser's Transformation spell. The end result (as some of you may know) was that you DOUBLED your fighter hit points (even though the spell was meant for wizards) and became the ultimate badass if you built yourself around this. I was curious if anyone knew if this had been 'fixed' in BG2 since I recently began my playthough of BG1 with the intention of bringing my character into BG2 (with this path in mind).
Right now, in BG1, I'm playing a pretty reasonable fighter, the only thing is that, in anticipation of dual classing in BG2, I have an 18 intelligence. Which is absurd if I don't intend to dual class with him later.
Actually I have two questions if you'll oblige me:
1) given the concerns I've expressed, is fighter dual classing into wizard still viable? (i.e. does tenser's transformation work like i remember in the EE?)
2) what would be the best level at which to dual class into wizard? I never bothered to dual class the main character in BG1 but I have a bunch of wizard scrolls saved up and would like to start a spellbook as early as possible, since starting to put together scrolls in bg2 can be a bit of a pain (I remember only ever finding one scroll of 'find familiar'). Basically, do I wait until lvl 9 fighter in BG2 to dual class, so as to capitalize on the fighter HP? or do I do it as late as possible in BG1 to have a good spellbook started..? If I dual class in BG1 where the hell can I safely store all these damn scrolls until then, too?
tl;dr -- whats the best method to dual class from fighter into wizard?
thx in advance,
