Dykeras Posted January 19, 2016 Share Posted January 19, 2016 Just bought the game as I was a huge fan of BG1+2 and hoped this was more of the same... Sadly, I had the crazy idea to play a damage-dealing Holy Paladin, someone to smite evil and protect the innocent , but after checking various and numerous forums/websites it seems the Pally is next to useless unless used as a tank And if I do have the audacity to play a '2 handed damage dealer' instead of dual weapons, then i'll be a huge detriment to my party, which sort of blows my role playing ideas out of the water . Next Roleplay idea was a mercenary Barbarian 'Loosely based on Slaine/Conan welding 2 axes, but then found out that axes are not very good and as a Barbarian I should use a 2 hander or my abilities will be far less affective. ... thus limiting my roleplay choices So, the only viable ' Not becoming a detriment to your party' player builds are Cypher, Mage or possibly Thief? seems strange after so many patches with so limited a choice of builds/classes seems a bit of a waste.
