    its the way i play baldurs gate, specific theme party , and see how it goes. plus Arbalests, so many arbelest, but think they fixed them in patch last night. hitting for 10-20 per swing on melee, and doing 55/shot on ranger = Oo

    I just got to the bit where the people turn to stone at the pillar. Is there something I should do there or just go to the next location on the map?

    Really enjoying this, stayed up all Saturday night gaming, first time I've done that in ages! That said, I'm having some issues. One is that my Wizard gets face pummeled way too much, and I'm having to rest because no matter what I do, I can't keep him alive.

    Need good shield wall in front of him :(

    I've tried, but the teleporting enemies just go right past and he's dead before I can do anything. Anyway, made it to level 15, that's a cool ending. Can't make myself take the evil way out, so I need to go back at some point.

    Just spent an hour getting splattered over and over again by Nalrend the wise, couldn't figure it out until I googled it... Looks like the effects stick even after it wears off.

    Love love love it. Better looking than DA:I as well, glorious. Started on Hard with a Chanter but I've got a feeling I've gimped her up so I might need to re-roll but I'll keep going for the time being. Love the atmosphere and the writing.

    Got a paladin. Got a wizard, cleric and barbarian to go with her.

    Seems to balance ok atm.

    I somehow missed the Paladin, need to go back to Defiance Bay to get her. What do you guys think of the druid companion? He seems kinda shit, or maybe I just don't know how to use his spells.

    I made myself a paladin :)

    im not "up" on builds yet, going mostly by gut instinct and what looks "sort of sensible", but people who data mine these things have declared that "all the companions are shit and have totally wrong stats"

    This I can kind of agree with. Someone did a Chanter build on the official forums that could put out some frightening DPS while tanking better than most fighters. My Paladin by comparison is easily the heaviest hitter in my party, when I'd expect someone else to take that role, like the Wizard or Ranger.

    interesting, one of the reasons i restarted was to re-do my paladin, still not 100% happy with it, but a lot of people are saying they are shit tanks and shitter dps

    /shrug

    re-rolled a druid as Im thinking as Im not that bothered about the NPC's ive met so far I'll do a small party custom made run...

    I'm finding they are massively gear dependent. Now that I'm fairly tooled up, I'm dishing out a lot of punishment, when I was struggling in early game. This guy soloed the game as a Paladin on Path of the Damned difficulty...

    http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/77212-build-paladin-solo-potd-video-of-the-last-boss-included/

    I think my stats are wrong (went high perception), should have gone max might, so already planning a second playthrough on a harder difficulty.

    interesting, but the minute you hit the "THIS BUILD, THAT HAT, THIS ROUTE" i lose interest, id rather just pootle around doing shit than try to "win" it gamey :p

    made a trio party of tank chanter (pc), aoe melee barb and wizzie on hard mode - no problems so far and things are a lot easier even with a 4 man party with the NPC's.

    Really tempted by POTD but I'll do hard I think - Im afraid this'll be like BG2 where I was a serial re-roller :D

    im running: paladin, fighter, chanter, wizard, cleric, ranger .. self-crafted atm

    mostly to get maximum "wtf do these do" research :D

    Does Barbarian AoE hit party like magic AoE? I'm also slightly sad that there aren't any rogue companions. Maybe in the expansion.

    I just hire an adventurer from the inn and you can make them as you want

    Just completed it. Two parts of the game I couldn't finish : The Ogre bounty quest and the final boss in the Endless Paths, the latter driving me insane as I died over and over and over again, my tanks instagibbed by 300+ damage crits. Stupid design.

    Not since Onyxia has a dragon vexed me so much!

    Have they fixed the AI and pathing yet? (AI trying to go through obstacles instead of around and not having an autoreact when party gets attacked)

    AngryJoe made quite a big deal about how bad that was in his review.

    meh gave up on this, still on my to do list but didn't have much real drive to play it after the initial first days.

    How are rogues, just bought it but not started yet. Always start with dual wielding rogues but remember them being "shit" in previous similar games (no need for stealth when the rest of the party ain't stealthed :p)
