I'm not really new to the forums. Though I am still new in that I've still never completed BG1 (Darn restartitis!).
I keep changing my mind on what class I want to play for my first playthrough. I keep jumping between a Ranger, a Totemic Druid, a Fighter/Druid, or a Kensai who later dual-classes into a Druid. Right now I'm leaning towards Totemic Druid because I feel like it reflects my personality the most. But one of my biggest concerns about the Totemic Druid is I want at least some front-line survivability. I know I'd never excel on the front-line. But is it plausible I'd be able to survive there okay if I equip Ankheg armor? My stats are:
I have a little meta-gaming knowledge so my thought was to end BG1 with:
due to the Tomes.
FYI I don't naturally "roll" my character(s). I just Ctrl+8 and then subtract to what I want. Not too much shame in that, right? =*(
Two other questions I have.
1) Please correct me if I'm wrong, but it's my understanding that if you are a Fighter/Druid that the game "treats" you like a fighter. A.K.A. NPCs address you as if you are a Fighter, Druid NPCs won't recognize you as a fellow Druid, you can only get the de'Arnise Keep stronghold in BG2 and not the Druid Grove even though you are a Fighter/"Druid", etc. Is this the case?
2) Is there any way to recharge wands and items with charges? Or are they meant to be just "use it till it's gone" items?
