I was thinking to solo with sorcerer, but I was wandering what I should do with traps. Since mage is very vulnerable to traps and I know there are quite many between me and Irenicus. (and I plan to do all quests and darkest day)

WELCOME! You are your first member from Finland!(I think)
You should dual or multi the sorcerer with a thief or a priest.

You cannot dual your sorcerer into anything. As far as the traps are concerned, stoneskin helps with the ones that do physical damage. Try using summoned critters to set off the traps.

I'm soloing a sorcerer right now!! I have been using stoneskin, protection from petrification and mirror image to avoid most of the damage from traps. If its an area effect trap I just get out of the radius of the cloud.

Just got to level 13, I'm doing Mae'Vars's Guild quest now. So far I am happy with my spell selection, but I have had a lot of reloads til I could figure out the right combination of spells to use in any given situation. Quests I've completed: Nalia's Keep, Trademeet, Bridge District Murders, Copper Coronet Slave Quest.

I'm still at 12th level. I'm also doing the Mae'Vars' quest. I checked through everyones spell list that they had going and wrote mine down. (I absolutely HATE escaping from the dungeon for the two hundredth time) Nalia's keep was quick and easy. I got killed twice in the Bridge Dist. (stupid assasins) I accidently caught Hendak with an area of effect spell. (Had to kill him too) I did however continue to rid the city of the slavers.
I took care of the brawls with Capt. Dennis, the one in the sewer, and the Den of the Seven Vales. Finally, the pathetic circus tent.

As soon as I am done with Mae Var, I am going to hit Trademeet.


Btw
nakkinaama,

sorry for clutering up your thread

Good luck with the sorc. There are only a few classes of traps, I'll list them and their "counterspells" below:

Physical (i.e. Spike traps) - Stoneskin
Projectile (poison/lightning) - Mirror Image (not 100% but close)
Gas (Cloudkill) - Run out of the cloud (no counterspell)
Spell (Maze, Imprisonment, etc.) - Spell Immunity (select appropriate school)
Flesh to Stone - Protection from Petrification

The good thing is that as a Sorc you should have these spells in your selection anyways and not have to worry about traps. Stoneskin is vital, Mirror Image is a great defensive spell, Spell Immunity is very powerful when used correctly, and Protection from Petrification can protect you from gaze attacks from any number of creatures such as Demons and others.

HAHAHA...I just stomped poor old Thaxll'ssillyia's scaly hide. Dragon stew anyone? Soloing is sooooo much more fun than dragging a bunch of characters around. The bad guys just seem to drop like flies. (Firkraag, you'd better find a better hiding spot.)

Hee Hee!!! I agree, Umar Hills here I come!!! I've been busy doing Aran Linvail's mini quests. The game just goes so much faster without worrying about npcs. I'm level 14 now!! Go sorcerers GO!!!!
