Too bad sneak attack doesn't seem to function like NWN. There when an enemy is incapacitated, then all attacks done are sneak attacks. I notice the sneak attack applies only to the first attack in IWD2 even when an opponent was held and couldn't fight back. Definitely take advantage of power attack ...

As alignment cannot be changed in this game without a character editor or hack, then paladins cannot multiclass with bards.

Why doesn't your mage have timestop and Greater Sanctuary? Just use Greater Sanctuary then buff (if you want) and cast timestop, cast mord's dysjunction and then two or three Isaac's Greater Missile Storm (may need another timestop after the second Isaac). She won't be able to cast any Heals that way.

This has been discussed in the Neverwinter nights board extensively at Bioware. NWN uses an ECL (Effective Class Level) wherein some classes are awarded more xp as they are considered a lower level. The warrior classes are usually treated as their level. Bards have the most generous ECL (they are tr...

Clerics can cast Greater Magic Weapon, forgot what level spell it is (either 3 or 4?) that tops off at cleric caster level 15 that sets weapon enchantment to +5 (I believe it is +1 enchantment every 3 levels) and lasts a LONG time (enough for the next rest). Then use Bull's strength, Bless, Aid etc ...

All characters in 3rd ed have an attack bonus progression. That means they make multiple attacks in a round with warrior types having the best. Are you sure you are not referring to the second and third attack in a ROUND which gets a lower attack bonus than the first? Note your character sheet to se...

Yeah feel like the arcane casters got shafted in terms of robes. But the Greater Battle Robe is readily available from Eltora in Port Llast. May get the Master Adventurer's Robe later when it is available from a merchant (can't seem to find it but I think one of the Luskan merchants has it).

That would be Armor of the Stars. Sure no dex cap and no arcane spell failure. Probably best robe type for arcane casters seeking AC bonuses but prefer Greater Battle Robe. The electric resistance is nice but not a selling point. I felt holding up for loot to be very true especially for the first ch...

Not sure if you checked out Mutamin's stuff in the Green Griffon Dragon Inn but he pretty much has +2 and +1 versions of all the major weapon types. He also has the Blade of the Gladiator (longsword +2 with additional acid damage) and Dagger of Chaos (+2 great sword with chance for confusion and I t...

It is nice that wiz and sorcs can change familiars as they level up so you can decide to have one that can tank a bit in the early levels (say the imp, hellhound and perhaps the panther). I had my pal1/sorcxx take the pixie and it is pretty good. Have not needed to use any of the henchies in the OC ...

Recommended skill ranks in discipline?

Just got the Diamond compilation of NWN. Created a pal1/sorc3 character at the moment clearing out the streets of Beggar's District and Peninsula District. Rod of frost, burning hands and mage armor was enough for most of the prisoner fights on the streets and houses. Lured some to the gate guards w...

Scribe scroll was a pretty good feat in ToEE. Too bad it is not so useful in NWN. Craft wands wasn't too useful but Craft Magic Weapons and Armor was a very necessary feat in that game.

Dual classing prerequisite is 15 in the primary stat for original class and 17 for the new class. So Skie doesn't have enough intelligence as it has to be at least 17.
