    Hail, everyone!


    This is my interpretation of Nathyrra, the Drow Assassin henchwoman from HotU. If I have to be honest, she’s my favourite NPC of all the henchmen, alognside Deekin. I would always end up romancing her in the end, cuz she was such a tease! However, Bioware really screwed things up in her build, making her almost unusable. I’d be better off leaving her behind before any battle than bringing her along. They made her a Wizard, but her stat increases went to Constitution, so she couldn’t cast high level spells, even if you asked her to level as a Wizard. That was a huge letdown to me. I was thinking about making her a Rogue / Wizard / Assassin, but I thought it’d be nice to try to build her with Ranger instead, for a higher AB, and a few more spells that she can use to bait dispels, such as Grease. But the best thing about going Ranger was to choose Favored Enemy: Elves to make her an expert Drow killer. In the end, Rogue and Assassin overlap a lot, so most things she could get from Rogue she does get from Assassin, except for Evasion, which would be nice.


    When I built her, I thought she’d struggle a lot, because she’s far from being a powerbuild, but to be perfectly honest, she surpassed my expectations as I leveled her solo on WoG to 40. She couldn’t solo the most difficult encounters, but the same can be said of nearly any sneaky build. If anything, she did a lot better than most of her kind. I slightly tweaked her skillpoint distribution from the first time I posted her, as she bought a wand of Improved Invisibility from a friend, and hardly ever used stealth after that, so I decided to reallocate those points into more useful skills that would actually make her more effective.


    Ladies and Gentlemen, Nathyrra!
