I usually play good and thought I'd give an Evil run a try and test out some different NPCs. I decided on a Blade since I wanted something that would scale throughout the saga. Plus, I didn't want to be a purely utility character, I like to be "part of the action". I searched through the forums for some info on playing Blades and most was geared towards stats and weapons and a lot of talk about higher level usefulness.
I am trying to figure out how to best approach in BGEE when levels are low. At a higher level when I have more spells I can play like a F/I, but early on not sure. I am using RR, though without RR HLAs as it had an error every time I tried to install. Also, with Song & Silence and trying Item Revisions and Spell Revisions for the first time. Also, playing with SCS.
Flynn - Lawful Evil Half Elf Blade
*Scimitar *Crossbow (thought about darts with OS) ***TWS (RR)
Most of the threads discussed building proficiencies without RR installed. I have more room to play with so probably Short Sword next.
Star-Teel: Fighter (3) -> Thief
I figure it will take out awhile until he isn't squishy in melee. So .... early in should I be wearing chain mail and using the Xbow? What spells should I take for BGEE first? Usually suggestions are to buff like a F/M, but that could be a while. Plus, Blade levels fast which will be good for some of the offensive spells. However, with limited spell slots I probably can't be an offensive mage and buffing mage. So, looking for suggestions.
