The party building is the best of any RPG I've played, the combat's highly strategic,

I cannot stress this enough; do not play without WizFast installed or you're going to be sitting through long as hell combat animations to the point of insanity. There's a lot of combat in the game too, so this is a must:

Anyway it's a great game, 6 and 7 are definitely worth playing as well. It's leagues better than Baldur's Gate 1 and Morrowind mechanically and otherwise. You should also consider creating a well-rounded party since this is your first go but don't be overly paranoid, just have fun with it.

Troll harder

TheOtherGuy is right about Wiz8Fast, it's essential. No mods needed otherwise. If you've built a bad party, you'll find out when you get to Arnika Road. Even a good party will often just barely scrape by there.

This is easily a top 5 all time RPG to me, along with Baldur's gate 2, elderscrolls series, etc. I loved 7/8, but never played 6 (played 5 in its console port edition) because I chose Eye of the beholder and was a kid :) Wizardry series is one of the GOATs. i remember being equally excited for the upcoming releases of 2 games - one being Wiz 8 and the other TES: morrowind.
