Best Builds for Original Campaign?

Getting back inot playing the game again. Played the whole thing through as a Ranger last time, but was wondering if anyoine had any suggestions for a good Dul class Buld to try and be sucessful.

I'm thnking in terms of a Figther/Wizard Build, but would be willing to try any build.

Suggestions?

A NG male Dru14/Brd4 focusing on scimi.  Ignore arcane spellbook altogether since divine spells will never fail with heavy armor/tower so use those spells.  All scrolls (arcane and divine) will cast w/o failure with minimal UMD investment.  Suggested split: STR 16(18), DEX 8, CON 14, WIS 15(17), INT 14, CHA 8

Feats: Blind Fight, WF, ImpCrit, Extend spell, PA/Cleave, KD/IKD

Skills: as close to max with each of Discipline, Spellcraft, Taunt, Tumble, UMD, Animal Empathy.  Perform net 9 (for song #3)

Dump levels (bard): 3, 8, 13, 17

This build has one of the best ECL ratings (fastest leveling) and qualifies for both the arcane test and druid circle subquests.

As far as what sort of builds are successful in the OC... ALL of them.  You really need to make an effort to build something so whacked that will not succeed in the learning campaign.

Madness... a blessing for the chosen few.

I am intrigued by your build, but I have a few questions

1.What is an NG male? (what race is that?)

2.When you say DUMP levels-at the numbers yoou suggested, do I take Bard?

3.Does This Build allow for the Dragon Wildshape?:

Other than that,I might just try it! Thanks!

1. NG = neutral good.  Druid must be neutral.  Good alignment has better quest rewards in Ch3. To avoid XP penalty, race must be human.  Male is because of the one minor subquest for males-only in Ch1.

2. Yes.  Those are the skill dump levels for bard allocating previously-saved points for Discipline, Perform, Taunt, Tumble & UMD.  Perform and UMD will suffer the -1 CHA mod penalty, hence the delay (typically dumped at 2, 7, 12, etc). Spellcraft is a class skill for both classes.  AE is class skill only for druid.

3.  I hope we are talking about the same OC here.  The NWN1 plague campaign will reach no higher than Level 18.  Dragon shape is only available in epic (21+) levels, after wildshape6x and WIS 30 is reached.  WIS 30 will happen extremely late unless CoT levels are included as the tertiary class to access Grt WIS feats.  

If this is about the NWN2 OC, ignore my suggestion.  None of it applies to that campaign.
