I beat KotOR II when it first came out, but now that the sour taste from the ending has worn off, I decided to go back and play through it again. First time through, I played my typical favorite RPG style: A male, good, meele based character. This time, however, I'd like to play the opposite: a female, evil, uber-bitch caster. This will honestly be the first time I've ever tried this, so I might need a few tips. I've checked a few FAQ's, but I wanted to ask the experts.
I plan on going the Consular-->Sith Lord route. For starters, here's how I set up my stats:
Strength ------ 10
Dexterity ----- 14
Constitution -- 16
Intelligence -- 8
Wisdom -------- 16
Charisma ------ 10
I plan on dumping all extra points into wisdom to bump up Force Power usage. As far as skills go, a couple FAQ's recommend putting everything into persuade (after getting at least a point in a couple basic skills). A couple questions:
- What are the best force powers to get? First time through, I rarely (if ever) used Force Powers other than Heal.
- How does armor work for casters? My understanding is that they basically can't really wear any armor. I've picked up a couple pieces of armor that list a maximum dex bonus, but don't make any mention of limiting Force power usage. I'm used to seeing 'Arcane spell failure 90%' in D&D based games, but didn't see anything like that. So, what's the general rule here?
- What feats should I focus on? The FAQ's vary wildly here, so I'm not sure the best way to proceed.
I played about 3 hours last night (made it onto the Harbinger), and am level 5, so I don't think I could have screwed anything up beyond repair yet. I have to admit, it's pretty fun playing an evil character.
Help me Starshifter & ATB, you're my only hope.
P.S. If anyone has a guide they're willing to part with, let me know. I'm trying to go through as 'guideless' as possible, but I do like having a reference handy for maps and puzzle solutions (I don't have a ton of patience to run around for hours to find the specific Purple Whatzit that opens the Sealed Door of Doom). I'm also not terribly familiar with the other character classes, so a levelling guide for them would be helpful.
