Guest Guest Posted April 6, 2008 Share Posted April 6, 2008 Caedwyr, if magic missile actually interrupted them I wouldn't have had any problem; that's why the prebuffing was an issue. The slaver mages are coming in prebuffed with invisibility, mirror image, stoneskin, and minor globes of invulnerability. About my only spell options would be ice storm, cone of cold, and I guess sunfire; none of these are really great choices in the situation. Ranged weapons with elemental damage have a chance of working, but not a particularly good one. Have I missed something obvious? As for spreading out, the encounter that got me posting made this almost impossible. The party starts clumped and surrounded on three sides by enemies, with terrain blocking most of the open direction. This is peculiar to that encounter, though. And yeah, it is about party composition and timing. I was trying to do Nalia's keep right at the beginning, so I've only got the NPCs you meet in Irenicus' dungeon or the Copper Coronet, and no potions to speak of. What makes things even harder is that I'm using Auren Aseph; Anomen would be a bit better since he can cast CC and might even make his own save. I'm also getting really annoyed with not finding a Secret Word spell anywhere. Makes me really regret that I let Nalia learn Pierce Magic rather than hold onto the scroll. Link to comment
