What is better race for a scout? Saracen or Briton?
And how should I distribute my starting points ?

Hard to say. I'd recommend saracen tho. Briton/Highlander if you plan to use a buffbot.

For a botter briton with +10 str,con,qui is best imo or highlander with same +10's as briton if ur not worried about the 10 qui difference.

both briton and saracen are good races

highlander.... rofl? no comment on that one


saracen is more cookie cutter as it gets u extreme dex and quick but at lvl 50 dmg isn't that much more than a briton.

britons also look better than those desert ppl :D

Like it was mentioned before, with a buffbot I would certainly take a Highlander :p
My scout is a Saracen, does nice damage. Still not lvl 50, so loses pretty fast to the numerous SB's out there, and the armor is crap, but once 50 she should stand her ground.
I would probably do a Briton if I could repick race. Also put points into con, dex and quick. Strength is a bit less important, unless you will go for a slash scout.

My scout is lvl 6 atm.
Briton, 10 con, 10 dex, 10 qui, Slash :)

Is he gimp already and I should reroll? :p


btw, it's on pvp, so I think more firepower is nice(could be wrong tho ;))


Dunno, what's better at higher lvls, the saracen's dex and faster draw speed, or the briton's higher str(to carry arrows ;p) and hits.

BG1 scout: saracen hands down, +10dex/con/str or qui, depending if u value a slightly shorter drawtime and more evades (qui) over a bit more thrust/slash/shield dmg and better tolerance of debuffs (str) can be important when ur carrying 50lbs of arrows...

lvl50 buffed/buffbot: highlander, +15con 10str, silly as it sounds dex & str will both be at or slightly over 300cap with augstr1 & aug dex1, and qui @ 295 with aug qui2 the prereq for dodger.

course they're talking of removing the 300cap so who knows u might end up with a gimp archer a few months down the line... heh

Agree with Aussie. I would have loved to change race to Briton...
Was a bit of noob when I picked my race for scouts... still am a Noob offcourse, for still taking pleasure in playing a scout. Mythic, what have you done for me lately?!
And sadly, a buffbot is needed on a scout... This way you MIGHT land slam on one of the 5 SB's attacking you at the same time, buffed by a lvl 50 buffbot, and oh so elite...

You will not have quickness at 295 with 50 base quickness as a Highlander. Not even with 50 spec enhance buffs and aug qui 5.

Thing is. You don't get a baseline Quickness buff.

Also, he didn't put +10 qui to begin with, he wanted +15 con, 10 str.

Quickness is the secondary stat for Scouts, it is raised every other level.

With 50 base quickness you will have 73 quickness base with no items at level 50.

You will have 148 quickness capped with items(+75). Add 50 specline dex/qui buffs(+75) and you'll have 235 qui fully buffed, not counting aug qui.


edit: Assuming 125% bonus from enhance spec over lvl, you will get 50 str, 44 con, 48 dex and no quickness since there's no baseline quickness buff.

yus in my late night stupour i added on a 50qui base buff, which of course doesnt exist thnx tranq :)

...still dex wise, str wise and especially hitpoint wise highlander is a win (with a buffbot)
