    I've had a bit of trouble in a few places through the game, but none that I couldn't overcome after a few tries.

    The Yuan-Ti Waterdhavian creature was the first. I think it was because I was going it alone at the time. I think it would have been much easier if I had had Tomi with me.

    Desther was next. Foolish Tomi and my Panther would go after the creatures of the pentagram first and let Desther out. He'd run over to me, cast some spell and one swing later I'm dead even though I was at full health. :mad:

    The Slaad lair where Klauth is was a real pain too, but I think it was unnecessary. All the Slaads in there including the Greater Death Slaad Lord were almost too much for me to handle alone, and Tomi and my Panther were pretty useless, so I told them to hang back at the entrance.

    Klauth was easy by comparison. I had some armor that protected me from fire, a ring that protected me from multiple elements. I gave him the dead dragon sphere. Then I noticed I wasn't strong enough (14 STR) to hit him with swords, so I switched to my bow (Taralash) and ice arrows, and with my 22 DEX he was down pretty quick.

    The final battle was tough at first, mainly because I was blind and never saw that statue in front of the spike trap, and that damned thing killed me every time I crossed it. Finally I broke out my bow again and shot ice arrows at the lizard protecting her from frost, then killed her the same way. I then read here about the statue and went back and did it again using my swords this time :)

    Desther was my hardest. I had no good damage reduction spells and he kept killing me in one hit. Never had any trouble with dragons as a maximised flame arrow does major damage to them.

    I had a good bit of trouble with Desther as well, but nothing as difficult as Klauth or the final battle with Morag.

    As far as the Klauth battle goes---I battled for many hours and was unable to defeat him, so, hanging my head in shame, I went back and killed one of the other dragons, stole her eggs and gave them to Klauth. It was truly an abysmal action. :shame:

    The Morag battle was finally won by my mage casting Dominate Monster on one of the lizard men to help me take care of Morag. Daeran was taken out pretty quickly....so I was on my own for most of the battle---not a pretty sight.

    I'm going through again...and this time no eggs for Klauth.

    Desther was really hard mainly because I would try to clear all the creatures from the room before killing any ritual monsters but my henchman would always spoil that plan however I couldnt clear the room without him.

    I met a Bodak which kept on killing me with its instant death ray thing eventually i killed it when my character finally managed to make 3 will saves in a row (Good reason for the Iron Will feat).

    I struggled with any encounter with Fire Giants too. Eventually I got rid of Tomi and got Daelan despite my character being a fighter with about 28 strength and 200+ hitpoints but they were still hard.

    Dragons seemed easy enough except the battle with the two corrupted ones.

    The final battle was remarkably easy. Daelan died almost immediately but when only Morag was left I had no problem despite me blundering around not knowing how to harm her. I used one heal potion and my ring of Elemental Resistance seemed to stop almost all damage.

    I'm only at the start of Chapter Three, so can't comment on the dragons and such, but there were quite a few enemies that took me a while to overcome.

    The Yuan-Ti was the first. I ended up using the stone of recall to keep porting out because Sharwyn kept dying. My cleric couldn't do too much alone.

    The next, and probably most ridiculous enemy was the lich Brother Toras in the Tomb in Chapter Two. I was only level 8 when I did that quest, and he killed me in two hits. Needless to say, that one took me a while to win.

    Darktongue was the third. It took me six or seven tries to take him down. Thanks for the help on that one BTA :)

    I had alot of trouble with the bloated dire spiders in chapter 1 too, with my rouge that is. When I tackled them with my wizard, they were simple as anything :) . I didn't have any trouble with Desther with either character....

    I really had no trubble at all with that slaad group you mantioned blackthorne, but I never got that damn dragon Kleth down to more than injured. Where did you get that dragon sphere? I killed that blue one easy then I though Kleth would get the dead dragon essenve automaticly.....

    Once you kill the blue Dragon, there's an empty sphere in a container nearby. You need to put the sphere on the pedestal to have it absorb the Dragon's essence. I suppose you could do it while it was alive as well, but obviously it wouldn't have the same effect :)

    There were several ritual books around the dungeon there for you to read that explained this...

    Oh, by the way, no trouble with the Slaads? Was there a Greater Death Slaad Lord, a Death Slaad and a bunch of Gray Slaads for you? For me they were casting lightning spells all over the place and death spells too... The only way I was able to take them all on was to sneak past the Grey Slaads and take out the Greater Death Slaad Lord and the Death Slaad first. Otherwise, I was toast.

    I did the sphere while he was alive :)
    the red dragon gives you 5000 gold and some xp for doing it :)
    ofcourse i also offed the green dragon and the gold dragon and sold the eggs to the red dragon too so i didn't even have to fight him with my wizard..
    i did fight him with my ranger and he was tough (my ranger was good so i could really go and kill the gold dragon for it's eggs).

    that rakshasa was super hard for me to kill with my wizard i had to let my summoned monster kill it cause my wizard couldn't (although my ranger cut it down like grass lol)
    the Battle devourer was super hard for my Ranger but my wizard blow that guy apart with ease. so i guess it depends on your class what is hard or easy.

    Yup, the same way for me, though I had a Ranger10/Rouge5 with w√ľnderbaren reflex saves so he avoided alot of lightnings, and Daelan chopped those suckers bad!

    ok, thanx for the tip, i will return to that dragon and kick ass, a colosal, ancient red dragon, he most be among the powerfullest in the world, execept for Tarasque....
    I need him as my trophy...

    I haven't run in to any really tough battles, just annoying ones. The Intellect Devourer got on my last nerve, kept repossessing bodies and my cleric was having a hell of a time with it (then I learn that the battle can be made easier by talking to the guards before hand...)
    The other annoying battle is the spiders in one of those crypts (just annoying not hard.) It's just the poisoning that they do that gets on my nerves.

    The hardest fight I had was Klauth. After that I'd say it was the 2 dragons. The hardest fight early on was the dire bloated something spider in chap 1. Everything else was pretty much cake for my fighter.Dragons would have been easier if I would have had a belt of greater swordsman(slashing 20/-). String them out and you can kill them all by yourself.

    Uhm, Syrel you are aware tht Gold Dragons are Lawful Good aren't you? My toughest fights had to be in the High Tower. The first one was where you create the Golem and he destroys the door. I was playing a druid and my Dire Wolf and Bobbyknocks wouldn't come though the door so I ended up having to unsummon him and then resummon my wolf in the room. The other was the Lich in the prison but that was because I didn't expect him and opened the door thinking it was another prisoner or zombie.
