I dont remmember the final boss being this hard
SO im at the very end, i beat the game as a kid but i dont recall having THIS much trouble.
My party is
All have an AC of -1 to -3, with the exception of neera who is at 4. Branwen and Dorn are both -6 AC. So their all fairly tanky. I have cleared out almost every zone including Durlags Tower and some of ulgoths beard. I seem to recall some temple to helm from when i was a kid that i did not do this time around, but i couldnt find it so i thought it mightve bene a different game.
My entire party is lvl 7 with vicona and branwen both being lvl 8. My wizards can cast up to level 4 spells.
Imoen has 100 in both lock picking and find/remove traps.
In the final room imoen can not disable the traps even with a pot of master theivery and a pot of perception. so i have dorn proc them and then go back to get heals without waking Sarevok.
After the traps are procced i do my quick save, then slam out the buffs.
Bless, Chant, Defensive Harmony, Group Protection from Evil.
Mages get Stone Skin, Blur, Mirror Image, Minor Globe of Invul.
Clerics get Draw Upon Holy Might, Armor of Faith,
Dorn gets his Special Ability WEapon Posion, and then a potion of Frost Giant Str, a pot of heroisim, and a pot of magic invulnerability.
then i do a manual save (so i dont have to rebuff every failed try) and i charge in.
Sarevoks MAgic Resistance is so high my mages cant touch him, he attacks ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ly fast and has a realy low THACO, he chews right through Dorn like hes made of butter. All 75hp of him. i can kinda kite around the room and if it was a 1v6 vs Sarevok then i think i could win. But its not.
Hes got that 2nd fighter that my clerics need to off tank and that mage helping him. The mage is what ♥♥♥♥ing kills me, he slams out stinking cloud and then cloudkill and my entire party either dies or takes a ton of dmg, He also has so many buffs i cant manage to get through one of them with dispel magic.
If i cant lower sarevoks MR, and i cant dispell the mage and then burst him down before he cloudkills, how the ♥♥♥♥ am i suposed to do this.
If i did a speed run id be at sarevok by level 5, and i cant IMAGINE trying this fight then!
