Corbeast the Human Beastmaster - FINAL Update!
Traveling with: Korgan, Minsc, Keldorn, Anomen, Jan
So Corbeast and team return to Amkethran. There were a ton of monks here, but we had some summons to assist, and di well in clearing out the riff-raff. We found a key on the dead monks and entered Balthsazar's stronghold. Balthsazar is a lot easier if you have a cleric memorize 6x CC, 6x Free Action and 6x fire resist. Indeed, Corbeast defeated him.
Next up was the Ravager battle. Before the battle, Jan laid down 4 snares. We put the summons where most of the bone blades spawn, Minsc, Keldorn (using Foe Bane) and Korgan in melee. Took a while and Corbeast did have to run to safety, but the team prevailed here.1st Melissan Battle:
I usually find this battle the easiest Melissan battle. I did have a secret weapon to be used against her - dispelling arrows! I still have all of them we picked up from Spellhold. Indeed victory achieved.1st Pool Battle
A lot of undead, but they were of little trouble and luckily no level drains on anyone, though Minsc and Korgan and Anomen are immune to such.2nd Melissan Battle:
Dispelling arrows again were helpful and a breach from Jan. I forget the rest of the fight.2nd Pool Battle:
Anomen tried a sneaky Storm of Vengeance, but it wasn't very effective. But the group with help of Skeletal Warriors defeated this group of baddies.3rd Melissan Battle:
I find this the hardest Melissan fight with the powerful slayer shadows. Melissan left mid-fight and we were dealing with her minions, but they were endless. She time stopped twice, killing Anomen. Keldorn was chunked! Ouch, needed him to dispel Melissan's protections...The party was getting overwhelmed and eventually its only Corbeast and Minsc left with many minions left - however, Melissan was near death! Corbeast did GWW two times with his +5 Firetooth Crossbow and killed her! Whew, close...3rd Pool Battle
I kept AI off this battle...Jan tried to use his wands but was spotted by the Fallen Planetar. He ran back to the group and our summons and he was charmed! Our summons duly killed Jan...this was a good in a way, I forgot about the succubus -8 penalty, so the fighters quickly donned our charm resist gear. Concetrated fire killed all the enemies in this pool, lots of antidotes gulped during the way.Final Melissan Battle:
Corbeast summoned his best remaining buffs, best summons and concentrated fire on Melissan. Jan still had a breach left so used it, and Corbeast noticed Melissan was badly injured so used up his remaining GWW...yes she falls!Epilogue:
Corbeast becomes a god. Interestingly, the Solar called him evil, and refused to be his assistant - apparently those responses you say after killing each of the five DOES have an impact on the ending, I will keep that in mind next time. This is a Trilogy No-Reload, so when get time will put in the Hall of Heroes.
