I constantly do that. Can't remember the last time I played through with an ordinary model. Drow male, Drow female, Werewolf, Irenicus, Bodhi and Rakashas are the ones I usually play around with. Demi-Liches works too. Think I had a nymph once, and a wolf too. Not 100% sure. Most important is to get...

The movie with the hooded figures you're referring to is not considered canon. It was a teaser trailer sort of thingie that they then disregarded when they made Throne of Bhaal.

They won't get enough THAC0 to not miss that much, which is the sad part of it. I generally only use them if I have no other rogue in my party, so you get a disarm trap/unlocker as well as a half-mage, a welcome addition to any party. With a bow they can backup your party with casting/attacking dece...

You sure? xD Soloing it in 20 sec with only 1 item and 13 spells is pretty fun, considering how difficult it was the first time one played it

Well, I've fallen into the habit of creating the same setup (or a very similar) over and over again, since it just works to well and feels like the "ultimate" setup, I really couldn't figure out a way to improve it and all it feels just right for the tougher mods. Not that creative, though, it's mor...

Just checking in, is it just me or is awakening tons easier than origins? I mean, you get sovereigns for practically everything you kill which makes weapons like spellfury and voice of velvet incredible easy to come by, not to talk about the tomes of focus, which gives you the ability to have that c...

Before it was: Attack = 1/2 Dex + 1/2 Str Damage = 1x Str (or Cun if higher and Lethality has been skilled) So daggers where exactly like all other melee weapons.

Won't happen. Even if you manage to get him "better," nobody will make Sarevok look weak with his deathbringer assaults. :p

Dualclassing can be pretty interesting. I don't remember the levels exactly (I think it was 14), but if you dual class a Cleric at the right level you still maintain all, or close to all, of your Mage spells (since Mages over 7m or so don't get any new 9th/8th etc level spells) and at max level you ...

There will never be a game that compares even remotely to this. Fix'd. Also, I concur. While Dragon Age was one of the better games on many years and could provide a feeling most others can't, it was still lightyears from Baldur's Gate. The versatility and the combat system is the reason I still pl...

There are a lot of useful defensive spells out there, I was mainly going through what I consider the absolute basic. It's a simple setup and it works a long way.

If you can't keep a sorceress from getting killed you might have problem with later encounters. You might want to try learning how to use your survival-spells accordingly instead of rerolling. One of the most fundamental defensive combination of lowlevel spells is Mirror Image , Stoneskin and Firesh...

Staff of the magi. No resistance, damage output or decapitation ability can match the overpoweredness of permanent/re-equippable invisibility.

First of all, you're going to take Minsc, who is good, and Jaheira who acts that way although she's neutral, so you might want to play a good party. If so, I'd first and foremost recommend Keldorn in your party. Very good, very powerful. Not the most fun dialogues or most noteworthy character, but d...
