I am sure it’s fine on a replay with prior knowledge but rolling to hit 48 AC is not what I consider a walk in the park. Fights are overly long because of all the misses which makes turn base unplayable…unless you have a few hours.
It’s mostly just the middle room with three demons and two mirror imaged succubi.
You fight more of them after but always in smaller more manageable numbers. The dungeon boss was laughably easy.
I did discover after clearing nearly the entire dungeon on like the last 48 AC demon fight that the spell vine trap completely destroys them. It locks them in place, does a little bit of damage, but most importantly it allows all your attacks to automatically hit. The last two exploded into gibbets the second after I casted vine trap…(still playing in real-time.)
It was a real slap in the face. (I suppose any spell that causes paralysis ought to work. Vine trap just worked with my build because I had spell focus and greater spell focus in Conjuration)
To balance out the build-masters here, as someone who ‘just goes with it’ all the time, you really can’t go wrong with trying any kind of class/build you want, provided you are also okay with adjusting difficulty if you find it too tough. I find that’s a much more enjoyable way to play than trying to get something that works well without frustration on a specific, higher, difficulty, even the default.
The game is a LOT. I mean, huge in a good way, with a tonne of content. Even in the base game. If you like it and stick with it then you’ll be investing a great deal of time into that character. Be sure it’s what you want.
Right here! In a discussion all about Arcane Casters, (which you are wrong about the Witch, but okay) you drop a comment about Shaman.
Consider the conversation is all about Arcane Casters, that you start talking about Witches being not really Arcane, and veer off into Shaman, and then end with a discussion of Bards (which are also arcane, but not to the full 9th level in 1st edition), it is hard not to assume that you thought Shaman were also Arcane.
If you didn’t think shamans were Arcane, then I have no idea how a person is supposed to parse your words.
