I was pleasantly surprised to see options for playing a Warmage and a Beguiler when I last played toee. I haven't tried either of these classes before, so I thought it would be a nice change of pace. I made eight characters using standard rolls, no point buys. I rolled a few times to get solid stats, but nothing outrageous. 5 of my characters are Warmages. 1 Beguiler 1 Cleric 1 Sorcerer At level one I got the dreaded troll encounter on the world map. I figured it would be a total party wipe, but I didn't lose a single character. Thanks to what feels like endless magic missiles and the Warmage's Edge extra damage, the troll fell at the front of the second round. Dropped easily by a party of first level characters. I practically blinked through Welkwood Bog. Again, magic missiles made quick work of the enemies, and I had my Beguiler on the side using Sleep to pick up the slack. My party is currently at second level. Decent AC's. I've got them outfitted in chain shirts and carrying elven shields. Are there any class combinations you've found to be particularly effective?
