i recently got my hands on Icewind Dale:Enhanced Edition and want to start my first playthrough, but i have never played Icewind Dale or Baldurs Gate before and even with the help of some threads in this forum and some guides on classes and the battle system i am not sure about the party i have created.
So far i have:
She is my face character, since she has high Charisma and should be able to stand her ground in battle. Does the paladins shining knight attitude affect gameplay?
His job is to kill things and tank. Should i focus on one weapon or alternate between different damage types? Should i Dual-Class and if yes at which level?
My wizard. I took a Diviner mainly because he only looses one school and can identify minor stuff without a spell due to his stats. Will i be in trouble without conjuration? Should i take a sorcerer instead?
Priest of Lathander
I read that there are a lot of undead in this game so i took the Lathander kit. I found it hard to roll good stats on this one and now i wonder if Charisma affects turn undead somehow.
I am not sure at all about her. I took Swashbuckler because i don't think i will backstab much and it has some nice bonusses. I put 20 points into Pick Lock as well as Find Traps. What other thieving skills should i put points into? Pickpocket sounds fun but how many points do i have to spend on it to make it work reliably?
Or should i invest in Set Traps?
I can't decide on the last character at all. Monk sounds nice but seems weak for the first 10 levels or so. I don't know about druids and their rather severe restrictions and i don't think i would like a ranger much. Any suggestions are welcome.
