Bought myself Icewind Dale 2 for holiday.

Post by UnholyAvenger » Tue Dec 20, 2005 7:55 am

Was doing some holiday shopping, and found the Icewind Dale box collection, at EB, the only place I see it when it's not sold out. I've been looking for the game for a while and now I can play it. I had the game twice, but I have an unfortunate habit of giving away and selling all of my possessions.

Installed all the necessary mods and patches and created my 4 person party, which is the way to go... for faster levelling and easier to manage battling and such. I've only played a bit of the first level, I usually re-create my party about 7000 times until I find one I'm happy to play the whole game with. Here's the one I may stick with...

Gordon Lightfoot
Dwarf Fighter/Rogue
My all-purpose thief, sneak attacker hero.

Elspeth Goldleaf
Dark Elf Fighter/Cleric
Buffing and healing and a good attitude while she does it.

Flora Ironsong
Aasimar Bard
Bards can rock it old-school.

Eric the Angry
Human Wizard
Uses a crossbow so that he can shoot things if he isn't casting.

I wouldn't mind having a more pure fighter in my party, like a fighter4/barbarianx... love that speed increase, but I only want 4 characters and don't know which character I can part with.

EB is still getting active restocking of BG2 and IWD.... I really don't know where it's coming from though!

I wonder. They must have a stockpile of them.

I would say the bard. The bard song is slightly less useful in IWD2 compared to IWD. Have you considered using a druid ? They are pretty devastating spellcasters (and they can wear armour) ?

Have fun :cool:

I was thinking about that. But no War Chant of Sith?

My memory is a bit rusty (and I don't have the game around here), is it the one that provides constant healing ?

If so, it's only available in a somewhat reduced form (only heals you while you are in combat, not before and after combat is over).

Maybe I'll just make 6 characters. It kind of sucks not to make use of all the great armor and weapons anyway.

Yeah, unfortunately, you can do that. But as long as you aren't doing it on purpose, you won't ruin the fun for yourself.
