    I NEVER turn undead, like seriously i don't think i used it once it SoA or ToB. I found spells like sunfire and hold undead worked fine! Although your method does sound quite interesting though! :D

    Luf turn undead. Personally I like amassing large undead armies with an evil cleric, then sunraying them when they bore me.

    Truth, you rock!!! :thumb: I :love: chunking undead like that. I use a similar method with Anomen (invis potion+Turn Undead=gore). Yes, tell us what level you were to chunkify Kangaxx the demi-lich.

    @ Kuemper,Silverstar


    Kangaxx can be turned at level 34.Here is a table with the levels:


    TURN UNDEAD LEVELS (the first number is Fear and the second number is Death):


    Skeleton: 7-8
    Skeleton Warrior: 13-16
    Ghast: 9-12
    Greater Ghast: 9-13
    Fell Ghast: 9-13
    Ghoul: 7-9
    Greater Ghoul: 9 -13
    Ghoul Lord: 12 -13
    Zombie: 7-9
    Zombie Lord: 7 -12
    Sea Zombie: 7 -9
    Sea Zombie Lord: 15 -19
    Shadow: 7-10
    Shadow Patrick: 8 -12
    Shadow Fiend: 8 -12
    Devil Shade: 11-18
    Shade Wolf : 7-11
    Greater Shade Wolf : 8-12
    Shade Lord: 20-27
    Mummy: 10-14
    Greater Mummy: 17-21
    Lich: 11-18
    Elemental Lich: 20 -27
    Shade Lich: 20 -27
    Kangaxx Demi Lich: 27 -34


    - Although Bone Golems are considered undeads,they cannot be turned.

    - The only two undeads I wasn't able to turn even on level 40 were: a)The Lich at the docks from Tactics mod, b)One of the two liches that are on the first floor of Kangaxx's house (Tactics mod too).But at least this one with turn undead on, runs around in fear and doesn't cast any spells.


    @ olimikrig


    Of course, if Taluntain is interested he can tell me if he wants any of them ;)

    Yeah Truth! Can I make my next Priest a follower of you? The power of turn undead at it's finest.


    Though I must ask. Why didn't you use Sanctuary? Is there a delay between it ending and turn undead functioning? Or did you have that level full of other spells?

    whee looks like fun!

    I use turn undead like that, but never at such a high level. Good idea with invisibility - I usually activate it when undead close in, then I run around to avoid getting hit until the turn undead actually kicks in.

    @ Anjo

    I can't say that I have faced many difficulties so far.Well comparing the cleric to my fighter's solo I can say that till now the cleric is having a much easier time although I am playing on insane diff.
    I am still in Ch.2 and I have completed almost all the quests.Have to do the Planar Sphere and some others and then I am going to chapters 3,4.Some of the harder fights:


    a)Improved Ilyich:

    Group of duergars: silence for the mages is excellent, for the fighters domination,hold person and then my skeletons helped me to finish them off.
    The fight with Ilyich and co. was much easier than I expected.
    A priest of Lathander at low levels is the best fighter in the game with: Draw Upon Holy Might,Righteous Magic,Armor of Faith,Boon of Lathander and an oil of speed.He has 3 attacks/round and does MUCH damage with every hit.

    But even in high levels a Priest of Lathander is still a good fighter.At the moment I dual wield flails,FoA in the main hand and Defender of Eastheaven in the off hand and with Armor of Faith I have ~50 % resistance to physical damage,and 4 attacks/round whith my Boon and hasted.


    b)Knights of the Dark renown:

    Faced them at level 16.The usual tactic with invisibility at the beginning,then casted a firestorm at the center of the map which killed both their mages!Then created my small army with aerial servants and sk.warriors,buffed up,and killed the others.Holy smite helps a lot in this fight too.


    c)Improved Faldorn:

    Hardest fight so far.I wanted to be fair and I fighted her naked although she has weapons-equipment.

    Prebuffing:

    Spells: Ch.commands,death ward,protection f.evil,armor of Faith,barskin,Righteous Magic,Magic resistance and Regeneration (these last 2 were the key in this battle)
    Potions: 2 p.of Mind Focusing,1 p.of Defense,1 p.of Absorption.

    Immediately when fight started I cast energy blades and start attacking Faldorn.Her spell casting at the beginning cannot be interrupted so my only hope against her Nature's Beauty was my MR (unfortunately shield of the Archons does not protect from N.Beauty).I had to reload many times before N.Beauty got blocked by my MR.
    Then I kept attacking with energy blades (used 4-5 sets in this battle),interrupted Faldorn's spellcasting many times (spells like other N.Beauty,Heal etc.) and after she ran out of ironskins (the only spell I could not interrupt) I have managed to kill her.


    @ Starwalker


    Potions of invisibility are easier to use and with the random encounters added by my mods I have plenty of them.Besides my first level spell slots are all for Armor of Faith and Doom.


    @ Silverstar


    :hmm: If it's not here at SP then I don't know.I had it with many other notepads with useful info.

    So you hit the XP cap eh? Did you have level 50 mod? What level are you? How did you manage to get uber HLAs so early? Have you ever used NPCs? For what purposes? Oooh I have so many questions!
