The Balor fight really needs to be nerfed.

    Soften earth and stone + Balor rolling a natural 1 meant Thrommell could go whacky whacky with the Swords of Answering and full Power Attacky!

    Our main characters were level 3. We won. (Alleluia!) We got 0 EXP.

    Consider the Balor in the Fire Node an optional boss.

    Thrommel is level 10 and can do the balor by himself.

    I considered trying my hand at adding a Frenzied Berserker kit (I find it a fun kit in nwn2), but the silliness of Fragarach in ToEE would add even more silly.... likely guaranteed to be cheesed solely for Fragarach + power attack throughout the game. :(

    I surprised no one has ever mentioned this but.. Counterspelling against Balor.. just.. works!
    It's all about caster level + 1d20 roll vs only 16 DC! So you win most of the time and if you have multiple casters then you are completely safe. In my case there were 3 casters in my party preparing Counterspell every turn and poor Balor couldn't cast even a single spell during his lifetime until he eventually ran out of spells.
    This is so easy it actually feels unfair as 16 DC to counterspell any Balor's spell has to be a glitch.
