How are everyone’s stories coming along? Have you finished the game? If so how many times?

What tips, remarks or other things of note do you have that you want to discuss here?

As always try to keep things as spoiler free as possible.

Also should I do these posts more regularly (shows up on people’s feeds more and so has more traction) or like this is fine. Definitely don’t want to spam people.

Lucky rolls to you all!

Assassin is actually amazing! (self.baldurs_gate_3)
submitted 2 weeks ago by Anticorp to c/baldurs_gate_3

I hadn't tried it in 2 different playthroughs because it's rated really low online. But since I've used the other builds already, I figured I'd give it a go for Astarion in this new playthrough. He has an item that makes him invisible for two turns whenever he kills someone, which basically makes him a one man killing machine. For 3 different battles now I've split him off from the group and sent him out ahead to sneak attack the enemy group. Welp, reinforcements were never needed. He sneak attacks from range, turns invisible, moves away so he can't be detected, and attacks again. Each attack one-shots his victim, and he can make quick work of entire groups of enemies.

I can see that this build wouldn't be great for unexpected battles, or outright confrontation, but when you know that you want to fight, dang man! It's amazing.

If you happen to find that item that gives invisibility on kill, then I highly suggest getting a good bow, and giving assassin a try. It seems like it would be a good option for a playthrough without companions, as long as you are able to get back into stealth after attacking.

What have been some of your takeaways and must haves?

Lost the first one to w'wargaz as I thought I could do it without a throw barb ( could not ) Cut to him summoning 3 swords at every party member. That dude is no joke with the legendary actions.

Started a new one playing as gale. Died early but chose to continue for practice. Ketheric was next trouble. He seems like a multi attack check. If you're not aware every death within 40 feet of him is a new undead aoe birth. Dual crossbow thief warrior for crowd and oathbreaker for single target damage. About to go against the aspect and semi dreading it.

Only cleared about half of act 3 in the past, but plan to finish it with this gale honor practice save.

What have been your key takeaways from honor mode? Any must have builds or gear for your personal playstyle?

It's been a good step up from tactician feeling different but not overly bs imo.

Edit: I can't say I'm not curious about all the downvotes. FWIW this is OC from my third and current playthrough of the game. My sorcerer had to live though the first two acts wearing her awful "Playtex" underwear set, so it was good when we finally made it to the Lower City and were able to purchase some proper sexy unmentionables at the shop near the gate to the Upper City.

So Half-illithid warlock Tav + storm cleric Shadowheart + Minthara hits like a truck apparently. Everyone has initiative bonuses, so first turn Minthara hastes Tav, Tav casts black hole to cluster all enemies together, then Hunger of Hadar's them, Shadowheart then calls an upcasted Call Lightning with divine strike and obliterates everything. You can delete half the health of almost all the enemies in the first round if you get lucky, and they all get severe movement penalties from the black hole and hunger of hadar. Plus Astarion multi-classed rouge/fighter/gloomstalker with action surge and crit bonuses can pick off like 4 enemies in the first round too. Then Minthara smites the survivors into oblivion.

Fun times.

Don't get me wrong, I like the game, but I think it might be better suited for either solo players, or coop players who don't have children
