    Well even if you don't have the mod to get Tiax, there are quite a few meatshields on the way/near FAI to use instead (Xzar/Montaron/Ajantis/Viconia). If Viconia does resist fear that greatly reduces the risk non-SCS.

    Viconia has general magic resistance in vanilla, not an explicit Fear Immunity

    No, I am referring to the Resist Fear spell, as in the Cleric Spell. You know, Viconia=Cleric.


    And that spell affects the entire party! I would in general keep your prime Character out of his sight as he has some pretty lethal spells such as lightning bolt.

    Useful to know. :)

    What do you guys think would be more interesting:

    1. A solo Legacy of Bhaal mode run with a Fighter/Mage/Thief (no bonus XP, no XP cap)

    2. A poverty run with a Cleric of Tyr, Shaman, Totemic Druid, Wizard Slayer/Druid, Cleric/Thief, Fighter/Druid, and/or multiple sorcerers

    I would like to see what you could do with the FMT.

    The poverty run is really RP heavy. That might appeal to some, bit I read this page to learn something about gameplay - not the moral dilemmas of charname. But thats just me

  • semiticgodsemiticgod Member Posts: 14,511
    @StummvonBordwehr: If it makes a difference, I wouldn't be doing any RP stuff in the poverty run. Much of it would involve finding ways to deal with horrible AC, no potions, and very restricted access to resurrection.

    I've also considered a restless run. But unlike other restless runs, I would not allow the party to rest even from quest-related rests like the rest after meeting Garren Windspear; they'd all be immune to the rest opcode.

    @semiticgod
    A restless run sounds cool. I hate resting - in a no reload scenario. I avoid resting at all cost in BG2, just because I hate the cut scenes... I would love to see how you would manage the no rest restriction. You always seem to handle in play setbacks extremely well - so you doing a no rest run would be inspiring.

    But I will leave the call to the no-reload veterans

    What cruelty! Will you at least be modding in caffeine potions?

    In an unrelated note: do any of you get restartitis on no-reload runs? I never thought it would happen to me but it's happening. I'm at the entrance to the Cloakwood Mines and I've lost connection to my character due to my focus on metagaming. I've also reached a level of power (levels, money and gear) where I'm not likely to die outside of Werewolf Island, Durlag's Tower or the final fight. And I admit I'm not really eager to go to Durlag's now that I've made it this far (cue the ballad of the brave Sir Robin).

    @semiticgod a restless poverty run sounds like great fun - I'll look forward to seeing you beat that one B).

    @semiticgod Why not both one after the other ?

  • semiticgodsemiticgod Member Posts: 14,511
    @Arctodus: There's a decent chance I'll end up losing interest in the one I don't do first, since there's also a good chance I'll end up re-starting the first run if it fails midway through, instead of switching to the second.

    @Wise_Grimwald Man, fighting those werewolves in confined quarters seems highly risky. Congrats on getting by them. I have a feeling my run will end there, if I go.

    @semiticgod Then, the restless poverty run is my choice !

  • semiticgodsemiticgod Member Posts: 14,511
    I am most definitely not doing a restless poverty run. I'm not crazy.

    Unless I play with a group of Seducers and Warlocks... That might well be doable.

    I was at the experience cap with all my party, and I got a surprise bonus on the island, a +3 katana for a character who has ** in katanas. :)
