Since the weather is starting to look winterlike around here, I'm trying to figure out my new IWD team. So impressed by the archer in BG1 & 2, and the fact that I beat the original IWD2 with an all shorty (5 halflings and a dwarf, heavy on the ranged...finished the game at full HP on everyone!) I've decided to create an elf archer death squad, a super strong ranged party. So far I'm thinking:
1/2 Elf C/R
Elf Sorcerer (or maybe DD for flavor)
...which I'm quite pleased with, however, I'm not sure who to fill my last slot with, as I wanna stick with the elf/half elf theme. I could use a bard, and might, however, I'd kinda like to fill the last slot with something stronger, just to see how fast we can mow down our enemies before they reach us. Also I wonder about whoever to give short or long bow profs too, obviously the C/R will be using a sling, and the sorcerer sling and/or darts.
Any ideas on filling the last slot or whether to give short bow or long bow profs and to who? Would a straight fighter be boring? Wizard slayer? Assassin or BH? A second archer? Hmmmm....
