Alessandra is currently making her way through the Underdark. I'll quickly post on her early adventures down below.
In the interest of avoiding the fiascos Ashoka created for herself (Soulafein's death by fungus, and the United Underdark Ranger Hunt for those who may recall...), Alessandra took down the Myconids and Drow Party enroute to gnome-ville.
The Myconids got it first. The Deva was called in to prevent mushroom overload.
Alessandra sent her Deva over to get a start on the Drow while she was finishing off the Myconids. It took down a couple fighters and drew out some spells before they iced it.
The Deva's most important achievement was messing up the Drow's deployment- giving Alessandra an opportunity to buff and then drop them one by one.
One of the mages interrupted Alessandra's buffing (and hastened his own demise) by attempting a Divination cast. When foes attempt to Divine, Alessandra breaks and disrupts to protect her Mirror Images and RoAC untargettability.
Last Drow. Alessandra's only regret is that she did not have a chance to layer in ProEvil hence reducing the visual contrast between her and the backdrop...
The Demon, while upgraded, fell quickly. Alessandra took a little damage from his Aura of Flaming Death, but the fight lasted only a round and a half. He spent most of the time Stunned thanks to the Deva.
Current Character Record and Inventory.
Edit. I just thought I'd tack on coverage of the first first Kuo-Toans and the second Drow party.
No meaningful damage was taken against the Kuo-Toans or the Drow.
Alessandra wasn't buffed when she stumbled on the Kuo-Toans. She was able to layer in the essentials though. First a Hardiness.
Then Pro-Evil so she can look all pretty...
In SCS, the Whips backstab. The Warriors get Potions of Extra Healing. The Mages and Priests will try to disappear, heal, and rebuff when they take damage. The first casters weren't able to execute their disappear-> reengage move so the batch went quickly.
With regards to defense, the Stunning Bolts were a major concern of course- especially after being tagged with Malison. The Reflex took care of the Bolts though. Against the mages, Harmony for Enchantment, The Reflex for Conjuration solved them when they were in the middle of their books. Alessandra just had to keep Strength Potions and Oils of Speed around to counter Slow and Enfeeblement.
The second pair of casters executed their disappear->reengage move extending the battle.
Alessandra had a painful urge to do some Critical Missing by this point. I would have preferred she hadn't done it when wieding a Two-Hander close to a mage who is going Enchantment post-Malison. I was keeping track of the round segements here and there was time to re-quip Harmony so it wasn't a big thing.
Ditched the Two-Hander once the dispel landed and finished.
Alessandra had a nice little plan here that worked out swimingly. That movement mark is the Deva's: she's headed North. Alessandra, invisible, is headed South.
The Deva set up shop at the choke point. The Drow took their pre-buffs and quaffed their potions soon after. 3 Priests and one fighter to the south with still invisible Alessandra.
The Fighter peels off in pursuit of the Deva...
The Priests hope to hang back and cast. Good luck with that gals...
At this point, Alessandra activated her Ring of Gaxx invisibility, headed north, and then positioned herself with near the Mage.
The Mage falls.
Edit 2: Tacking on the Boz ambush...Sorry if this post is getting too long and image laden...
The Boz Ambush gave Alessandra a chance to try out her new blade: The Harbinger. It was a success, for the most part...
Tried to open with a Carsomyr Whirlwind on the Mage. Guess what happened...
Switched targets, the Blindness from Pitch couldn't save Chandrilla.
Alessandra withdrew untill her sight returned.
You know, I always wondered whether this thing really does Petrify Ogres. Now I know. I'm glad Alessandra doesn't wield Halbreds...
Alessandra got 3 10d6 Fireballs out of Harbinger during the fight. Buffed to +100% Fire Resistant, they healed her while helping clear the fodder and disrupting spells.
The Mage caught a Carsomyr Whirlwind once his ProMW wore off.
With just the Thief left, Alessandra switch to the Defender + Sentinel. A -20AC and 80% Piercing Damage makes Thieves a lot less threatening.
