    I know this can be subject to playing style, But the biggest problem with me and games like this is my inner-munchkin. I just need to be able to use the best items. It kills me to have awesome equipment go to waste.

    As far as I can tell, here's a list of the best stuff. Please feel free to comment:

    Maces (Stupefier: mace +1 w/ 25% chance of stun)
    Great swords (Spiders Bane & there's a +3 in TotSC)
    Long Swords (Varscona +2, +1 cold)
    Daggers (dagger of venom +2)
    Axes (+2 boomerang)
    Hammer (Ashideena +2, +1 electrical)
    Staff (staff +3, and the staff of striking)
    If you don't mind killing Drizz't (I do), you can get two incredible Scimitars.

    That staff is really great on a backstabber, but I'm not tied into using a backstabber yet. If I don't, I will give it to Imoen, who I plan on having dual class to Mage. It's a waste, as I never intend to use her in melee. It's worth noting that the boomerang axe be used by a tank, since its a missile weapon that still allows the use of a shield (and therefore another one handed melee weapon works).

    Dorn has his own sword. It's a 2-hander. Get him in your party and watch what it can due. I don't want to spoil it for you. Not sure if it is only usable by him tbh.

    Also, don't forget about the weapons that are added from Totsc.
