I'd like to use both Anomen and Keldorn, but there's a problem - both have very low dex. As far as I know, there is only one gauntlets of dexterity in the game and it's in the Unseeing Eye quest area.

Is there any other opportunity to increase either Anomen's or Keldorn's dexterity? Or should I just give the gauntlets to Keldorn and have Anakin cast spells at midrange? Or are there any other options?

Anomen is closer to a spellcaster, who can defend himself in melee, while Keldorn is more the frontline fighter of the two.
Usually, Keldorn will be better off with the gloves of dexterity, although later in the game you'll probably want to switch to give him either strength enhancing gloves, or gloves of weapon expertise/etc, to deal more damage. Especially come Throne of Bhaal, where Armor Class seriously stops being a stat of relevance.

I see what you did there and I thought it was funny.

Anomen can boost his own Dexterity. Keldorn cannot.

AC still matters in ToB because all those extra hits from random mooks add up, especially for a couple of tough fights like Yaga Shura.

That was actually totally unintentional but XD

I now imagine Anomen being an Anakin like creature instead of Gollum from Lord of the Bra.

*sigh*
Good times.

there are roughly 2 milion potions in this game.

I'm not entirely sure how many potions of agility there are in the game, but I know I carry a few potions of fortitude for Dorn. you don't really need that many, only need them if it matters. check the temples and the lady cragmoor in the bridge district. I know they sell mind focusing potions.

but yeah. the archer in siege of dragonspear has 16 dex. but just suck down potions of agilty, 18 DEX.

checking vendors doesn't look like temples stock them, so I could only find a few. not sure if they were sold to them over the course of the game or not.

Amonen is a cleric, he gets like level 36 cleric which means his draw upon holy might is +12 STR/DEX/CON

I mean sure it could be better. but it should be fine. its not like you should be front lining your cleric.
If the next one is called, because of his MO, the underwear bomber, you'll know I'm on to something. Calvin Trillin June 16, 2006.

If you are not using your clerics as tanks then you are doing it wrong.

Lack of THAC0, they are the ones doing the healing, are effectively spellcasters without things like iron/stoneskins to soak up damage as they will take damage, lack HLAs like Hardiness, etc.
They can wear plate, yeah. But their lower number of attacks, lower hp, lower THAC0, lack of fighter bonus hp and more limited weapon selection means they will lag behind more dedicated fighters, even when buffed up.

Now a fighter/cleric or ranger/cleric multiclass...

You got plenty of spells to fx thac0 and hp is useless if they cant hit

By the end of bg 1 my cleric had ac -5 and a toñ of adjustmenþs 10 misle was the highest and could be boosted to 15 if sacrificing paws of the cheeta(pŕe buffs)

As for corwyn there are plenty items to boost dex

Ok,, I feel like I would have learned something great about clerics here, but I'm confused by the way that you said it. Is there any chance that you could rephrase that typo free, please?
