    Hi,

    Now my party is in Dorn's Deep and has level at least 9.
    If I will go thru expansions then will it too easier go thru remaining part of base game or this part will adjust enemys' level at higher level? I don't wont easy battles.

    Thanks

    I think that before you go to the lower dorn deep is a good moment, before upper could be too fast. I went for party of F/M/T and F/D and I completed almost all lower deep which was a felt a wierd moment to go to the expansion, story wise i think before lower deep is best choice. Power wise hard to tell, I found enemies before a bit harder than i regular game at first but now its rather easy again; I mean I mostly die when I'm lazy to rest when im out of healings/spells.

    The expansions are quite good when you are 9th level.

    The expansions do not scale to level, so they will get progressively more boring the longer you wait. The main game does scale somewhat though.

    Just finish the normal way, you can export your characters afterwards.
    You can increase the challenge if you keep a save from as soon as you're allowed to enter HoW (all single class characters level 9) and start the expansion from there.
