Post-deployment I've been pretty bored, so I installed TuTu with various mods to make it more playable and challenging. ScS and so on. Ran a Berserker and his party through the game like that, all the way to TOB.
Then BG:EE came along, and that piqued an interest in multiplayer that quickly died again. But, it means the subject of a two-character run was brought up, and now I'm working on that. JESUS CHRIST I've died a lot of times! D:
18/00, 18, 18, 4, 18, 8
16, 18, 16, 19, 3, 12
I struggled a bit between going kensai/mage on one char and cleric/thief on the other, but decided that this was the only way to leave a character with the armor capacity to act as a tank early in the game.
Juggling with six or seven level one spells against assassins and monsters has never been more terrifying.
Sleep is a huge help, as is Command. I rely on potions for healing for now, since they're plentiful when there's only two characters consuming them. But I'm still getting my ass kicked.
