I play games. lots of games. Neverwinter Nights is probably one of my favourite even though I have never finished the first one nor its expansions.
I managed to get hold of Neverwinter Nights 2 and upgraded it all the to just before mask of the betrayor expansion I believe.
I would just like to introduce some tips and even some hints and cheats, if you dont mind.
Firstly, the MOST POWERFUL CHARACTER IN THE GAME IS A FIGHTER.
Why? Simple. You get loads of feats. you take power attack and a double handed weapon and then deal somewhere upwards of 100 points of damage on a critical. No other class can do this, not even that super intelligent mage with his fireball spell that peaks out at 10d6 (big thrill there)
No. Fighter definitely most powerful. Don’t even need to prestige class, but some worth considering is the Weapon Master and the Frenzied Bezerker. That’s what I’m playing, with a scythe as my favourite weapon.
Ok. Enough class talk, what about race?
Me, Human. Always. Elves can make surprisingly good rogues (don’t need to walk slowly to spot traps) or a halfling – tall fellow (free feat)
And i almost always play a female – just better to look at.
Now the Dos and Dont’s:
DON’T TRY AND MAKE ANY MAGIC ITEMS, pointless sin my opinion. Too hard to find the ingredients and too hard to build, but that’s just me. I have a 15 ranks in weapon smith and cant make adimantiam weapons. go figure.
DONT PLAY EVIL: you actually gain xp for playing good guys and doing good things. Nice hey, give the good guys a cookie and scr*w the bad guys
If you an archer, when you buy arrows etc always by 1 less (I but 98 arrows for 1 gp where 99 costs me 5gp??? sort of works with magic ones too, lot cheaper)
Oh, the less party members you have the faster you will level (more xp) party should contain a rogue, druid or ranger (for talking to beasties). That’s actually all you need, but a fighter is good too (esp if only druid and rogue).
k cheers for now. more to come [url not allowed]
