No, I didn't play a monk. That would be a little too obvious. My party wasn't all spellcasters, either. I had two full fighters (Keldorn and Misnc) and summons (fire elem. and aerial servant). But I was definitely challenged; my emphasis is on the fact that it IS possible to beat the game, more, to ...

That's gotta suck. I HATED it when I spent hours after hours after hours trying to beat those mindflayer rooms in the sewers... and all I got was the stinking wand of wonder! I mean, it doesn't do anything! I only used it once, and it killed Firkraag, but then I had to kill him AGAIN because I wante...

Poll/Challenge: How many weapons did you/could you beat BG2 w/o

I thought this up when looking at another post on the Interplay ToB board... they were saying how EVERYBODY is using all the really good, famous weapons that make your fighters gods and the game incredibly easy. So I compiled a list (its long!). I want to see how it compares to other people (but noo...

Craig, u get Summon Cow via SK. It's a really cool spell that basically throws a cow from the heavens onto your character. THere is also an MDK2 spell in SK, although the game crashes if u try it.

Also forgot:

Everyone is obviously forgetting about Summon Cow I would also really love to get Irenicus' ligthning spell, the one that actually LOOKS like lightning, just for the coolness effect. And BTW, Summon Cow is in the game, so don't start putting up random spells that people make up for the slapstick hum...

Hey man, my fighter just got five proficiencies in bowling ball :) so I'll make sort work of these guys.

It'd be great if in the end you could duke it out with all the other sons/daughters of Bhaal (a fighter, thief, etc.)

This wasn't just one moment, but a whole series: when I was beating the hard people in Ch. 3, I was reallyu frustrated and had to give up on a lot of them. By Ch. 6, I could see the full breadth of my power. It was a "Mwahahahahaha" sort of thing. It's great to see your party memebres turn from weak...

First: I haven't made the armor, mostly because I am MUCH better at thinking up these things than at putting them in the game. I'd be very much obliged if someone like Manveru made it and tried it out in the game. Second: I did completely forget about the cloak of the stars, and it's a great cloak, ...

OK here it is: VECNA'S FINGERNAILS The lesser-known item of the ultra-powerful lich, it is used in very special occasions, only when Vecna tries to take down a huge group of awesome spellcasters who don't bother to protect themselves from physcial attacks.

My bad. I realise I am not very familar with AD&D, since a lot of my knowledge comes from BGII. If you could post up Hand of Vecna stats, I would change fingernails accordingly. Remember,though, that having them DOES come for a price: -5 CON, -5 DEX, -10 rep.

The name was a little bit of a joke, the description was serious. I don't know, maybe I will post this up on Bioware, but since most of the game is already made ther is little chance of this getting in. But please, everyone respond to my Darts topic and think about cool darts. Cause darts are cool.
