Storm of Zehir is different to the other NWN2 games in that you get to make a party rather than a single character. For this reason SoZ Thieves Guild Power Builds will feature Teams, rather than single builds (unless it’s for a solo run!).
The other thing that distinguishes SoZ from the other NWN2 campaigns is the importance of Skills. Almost all the Skills available in NWN2 have some use on the SoZ Overland Map (OM). This is in addition to their normal use. TG Power Builds will therefore feature skill use heavily in order to increase the game interaction. You don't have to have all these skills, but they add an element to the game that most people will enjoy.
Talking of Skills, you will notice that the Able Learner Feat is featured heavily in these builds. As this Feat often causes confusion, and to prevent repetition, it’s worthwhile taking time out to explain why this Feat is so useful:
“Ranks can be taken in cross-class skills at a cost of 1 skill point per rank taken”. Normally you require two points to raise a rank in a cross-class skill. Able Learner therefore lets you buy these skills at ‘half price’. For a skill heavy game, this Feat is therefore essential to get the best out of multiclassing.
