Considering ways of making the game more difficult I came up with the idea to make a naked run through the game - using no items at all, which means no equipment, no potions, no scrolls. Game mode is insane. I did min/max all characters, but nothing special here (all rolls under 90).
Obviously, this rather severely limits character choices - my party is as follows: a Sunsoul Monk, a Dragon Disciple, a Shapeshifter and a Cleric/Thief.
It's rather straightforward play for the monk and the sorcerer. The druid so far spends his time in his wolf form, only shaping out of it to heal. The werewolf form is decent early on and I'm taking this opportunity to see if the greater form is any good.
Cleric/Thief is probably the most difficult to play. So far it's a bit of healing, the odd trap set here and there. The idea is to use charm and domination spells along with summons to control the battle. Her lvl1 spells will very likely be filled with Sanctuary later on.
I've made it to the Vale of Shadows so far, so there's not much to report in terms of feasibility of this party. One thing I fear is the crits that get further multiplied by Insane mode - I should not be surprised to see my monk go down in one hit from a tough lizardman.
