What exactly is your strategy against Sarevok?

His mooks can be dealt with easily enough, more so because you can actually pull them away from Sarevok, but my melee characters just take a beating from him even when they're rocking -7 AC. And I'm only playing on Core difficulty.

My party was a RNG, Khalid, Jaheira, Coran, Neera and Imoen (Thief/Mage). After my three melee characters got mowed down to red HP pretty quickly I just resorted to kiting him around and killed him with ranged attacks and magic. Is there a strategy where you can actually melee him to death? I didn't have a Cleric with me to give me some buffs.

That's the first problem right there.
My question is what spells were Neera and Imoen using?
Without their dreams men would have fallen upon and devoured one another long ago, and yet every dream is an illusion, and every illusion is a lie.

Haste, a couple of Fireballs at the beginning and then Magic Missile was actually doing some nice damage.

So, you might want to pack greater malison and slow. If you're lucky you can catch him with blind. Summoning fodder isn't nearly as effective as it was in vanilla.

Improved invisibility is nice due to the -4 AC bonus.

Make sure your warriors have chugged some incredibly strong potions (giant strength, invulnerability, etc.)

Depending on when you dual classed Imoen, you could give her the staff of striking and potions of invisibility and let her go ham with backstabs.

Ah thanks for the tips.

I'll try it after I do Durlag's tower and the rest of the TotSC content.
