Sunglass Man Does the Dale draw you in again? [IWD/HoW]

Because it draws me in. After a loooong hiatus filled with interesting life events, I am ready to plan another party and adventure again. I have two fundamental issues to decide:

1) Do I play Heart of Fury mode from the beginning or ease into it by playing on a different difficulty level? and

2) Party Style - do I include single classes(pally and bard) or do I leap right in with a caster-heavy party similar to my last long-ago HoF run (F/Ill, R/C, F/D, F/D, F/M/T, and M/C)?

Your thoughts are appreciated

I know this is a bit old, but here is some advice:

1) How long ago was your last game? You've played HoF game before, so you should know what to expect

2) Unless you're looking for a challenge, Pally is a no-no for HoF. Bard is useful for his WCoS.

Why is Paladin a no-go?

In general, given the insane amount of XP in HoF, a single class character will max out too fast. Towards the end of the game, a Paladin would be weaker than a Fighter/X.
