    Probably beats a dermatologist.

    Excuse me Mr. Mummy, that skin looks awful. Here, take this cream for it!

    :p
    You know, if you could kill hundreds of monstrous enemies as a dermatologist, I would gain a whole new level of respect for that profession.

    I look forward for a Blackguard kit in Icewind dale! I wonder, what kind of abilities will Blackguard have here. Perhaps the same like in BG games, I really don't know. I also wonder, if he/she will have some special dialogue choices like any other classes ( paladin, mage, thief ...) in the game unlike in BG searies.

    And most importantly, if blackguard will have a his "class only" weapon like paladin have "Pale Justice" longsword.

    Warlocks, spirit shamans, etc ...

    @recklessheart‌ maybe an acid breath or electric breath then? I really only said cold since it fit the setting most.

    Undead Hunter seems perfect for IWD! I never was able to get too far with one in BG. I'm also excited about trying a Druid of some sort, after seeing praises for it in IWD. It's unlikely that I'll be able to resist having a Stalker in my party, since I'm guessing that Rangers will actually be able to dual wield, instead of just getting an extra attack, the way it is in Vanilla.

    I'm concerned that my party will be too tough w/access to these awesome kits.

    To those of you concerned with the kits (or just spesific kits) being imbalanced or too powerful for ID can't you like just not use them? People are gimping themselves all the time on here with those masochistic no-reload runs and SCS and whatnot, surely just not picking a kit is peanuts compared to that. I'm a big fan of options and class kits are just that; options you can choose to ignore.

    Of course this is an option. In many cases I simply prefer the kits b/c they're more fun. Stalker is my vanilla ranger, for example, b/c I dig having stealth that's usable fairly early game & I can't imagine why a ranger (besides Minsc) would wear metal armor.

    I guess I was just wondering how balanced they'll be, if maybe the game has been modified to balance it out (maybe villains having kits too!).

    Blackguard, of course. But, I'm with others that Skald and Barbarian are really great additions.

    Blackguard, of course.

    Which raises another point: you can now play as a wholly evil character without,
    1. feeling pressured to act like a complete douche in order to fit in with your alignment, and
    2. feeling like your evil alignment conflicts with the underlying narrative.

    Also, IIRC, you can mix good and evil characters without fear of intraparty conflicts.

    monks! always been a favourite class of mine to play, IWDII was much fun with one, so it's inevitable that she will rise from the ashes and kick some jawbones in when IWDEE is released. My only decision now is which members of my IWD 1& 2 parties will pass the test to accompany her!

    Word. I can't play Evil NPCs for shit in the Baldur's Gate Trilogy, not even going to lie. Much easier for me in IWD.

    I third the opinion on evil characters. My play-through here on the forums with Phaendris has been both challenging but really fun, all because she's evil. And while I try to make her not be idiotically evil (killing peasants in plain sight) I do have to find evil things to do, which can be annoying. Some of her most evil moments have been in role-playing, really, and not in game mechanics. Just one of the minor annoyances of BG.

    I'd like to see blade, beast master, totemic druid, barbarian, monk ... All the class i've never played in BG because of team balancing with my fav' NPCs.

  • Grimo88Grimo88 Member Posts: 191
    Do you think the kits will be game-breaking?

    I am a bit worried myself. I feel like the vanilla classes were part of what made IWD difficult. No insane kits.

    Maybe have a new evil ranger class, so that bad guys can be rangers too.

    Meh, I've always disagreed with the rigid thinking that underpines all three of those schools of thought regarding BG. For a fandom that prides itself on being so supposedly cerebral and imaginative, that particular bandwagon strikes me as the opposite and enemy to both of those things.
