    The Slaads were never a real problem for me since I had a blue dragon scale at hand :holy: and due to dodge & mobility (I can't praise them enough) and the moronic habit of the grey and death slaads to only summon red slaads they were easy dealt with: I just never wasted a hit on a summoned creep except when I needed to force my way to the real baddies.

    Hardest fight so far: Klauth (I ended up locking myself out ;) and picking him off with arows after he wiped the floor with me in melee) and Brother Toras and his undead troupe (very annoying on lower level).

    Above I mentioned that my hardest fight was a dire bloated spider and at that time I was at the beginning of chapter 3 and I recently finished the game and now I would have to say it was Klauth by far. He took me a couple of tries and a lot of potions to kill.

    Funny thing, I had the most problems with the guardian Armor at the fallen Helm temple. It was parrying all my attacks and same by me. Tough damage resistence too. Cost me nearly TWELVE realtime minutes all my potions, spells and a dead henchman. Phui what a battle, but looked pretty cool. At this time NWN had won my heard even with the XPcap.

    Yeah, I've gotta say that those dire spiders are TOUGH! Especially if you're a melee fighter or a rouge. My ranger/cleric didn't have any troubles with them however (buff + summons + henchmen= :D ).

    EDIT: ARRRGGGHHH, bloody typos :(

    Heh hardest fight.. Easy choice for me. Chapter 1, no man's land, that blasted scythe wielding half-orc. :D That was the very first region I had entered in the chapter and that damned half-orc kept critting my 18 hp 3rd level mage for over 60+ damage. (he once did it 3 reloads in a row lol)
    Obviously it was way over my head but it somehow became a personal thing and bloodlust took control of me and I kept trying and trying again. Finally killed him by color spray, magic missile run out the door rest save repeat :p
    (the only time I cheated in a fight. Otherwise I don't even ever use the stone of recall during a fight)

    After that I went on to Meldenan's house (geez very tough for a 3rd level mage should've been the last place I went in chpt 1) so his apprenti was very tough too. I levelled up during the process and killed Meldenan as a level 4 mage, at my first try too :)
    Looking back, I was foolishly stubborn but I thought the other areas would be just as hard *shrug*

    After about level 7, I just walked over everything throughout the remainder of the game easily.
    That Klauth had me down to 1 hp (breated fire for 100+ damage on me) but he was just lucky I had forgotten to cast an elemental protection spell and thought I had one on. He had a painful slow death to say the least after that. (some power word stun fun) :p

    [​IMG] One, single, bloody, black Bodak! I must have reloaded 20 times to kill the bloody thing. Unbelievable. I took entire armies of monsters on with up to 2 reloads at a time till then, max, but this Bodak (before Quint's cell in Chapter 2) made one blast of whatever it does and killed my henchman, familiar and me. No matter what I did, one of his blasts killed us all. I still don't know if this new patch screwed this up, because I can't believe one monster can have a kill-all attack. I mean, that's dragon-power stuff!

    Finally I summoned a Skeleton Warrior since I was already giving up since no potion or aid spell offered any resistance to its bloody blast, and then I found out that the skeleton is immune to his blasts! And since it focused the blast on it my familiar and henchman were unharmed except for its regular attacks, and we brought it down relatively easy. But man, all the things I tried to get there! Unbelievable...

    Yeah, that Bodak can be nasty. In the Pnp game, it has a death gaze (DC15 fort save or die)so any round you are facing the creature you have to save. Ouchie.

    Anyway, my half orc fighter had a huge fort save bonus, so he just whacked the thing to bits. My druid/wizard, however, just got lucky. I was out of range of the attack when it wiped out the rest of my crew and was able to blast him with spells. Evards Black Tentacles among others, IIRC.

    Yeah, that Bodak's death gaze was murder ( :) ), but once I fortified myself with potions to help my saves, I had no problem. I checked out it's rating after it killed me a couple of times, and it was "Impossible" at the time I was there.

    The first Bodak that I ran into that had a death gaze for sure!

    But now I have a belt that gives me immunity to death magics.....
