I just want to put in a vote for dual-wielding for Bards, it helps alleviate their low number of attacks (especially with Belm in the off hand) and the THACO issue can be adjusted for with items.

[QUOTE=dj_venom] I would agree that Anomen would be better if he were multiclassed rather than dualed, but oh well. And as for who is better, I guess it comes down to your playing style, and what I meant was Anomen was better than Jaheria, not than someone with whirlwind, because as you say that is ...

[QUOTE=dj_venom]But I believe you can find better tanks, such as fighters that can have more profiences, or even Anomen is a better tank then here. But one good thing that I just remembered about Jaheria, or druids in general, is insect swarm. Now that is a killer mage spell, if only a good person c...

I have had elevator glitches and I just Noclip up to the correct floor....enter noclip in the console and then fly to the right spot. I'm not sure if that will work, though, Jezebel's floor might be a different area, I know the Russian Mob floor is. If Jezebel's floor is in the same map as the hotel...

Strange Bug with Projected Images casting Contingency, any ideas?

I was trying out Projected Images using a chain contingency or regular contingency, and I was getting the weirdest thing. I had Aerie, Jan and Nalia all cast images, and then had the images cast contingencies. In every case, the spell list that comes up for the spell is Haer Dalis' spell list, not t...

just for the record, I like Jaheira. She is quite formidable as a tank, she just has limited weapon selection and her spellbook is pretty limited. For instance, what do you take for level 2 spells? They all suck. I have her learn 5 slow poisons that she never uses - in the first part of the game I a...

Paladins and Bards have their special points that make them unique. I personally prefer multi-classed characters to single or dual, but there are still reasons to use a pally or bard. Comparing the Paladin to a Fighter/Cleric, the Paladin has a much better weapon selection. They can use swords, spea...

Firetooth is a great crossbow, it's handy to have the infinite ammo and the fire damage for finishing off trolls. I have had a couple games where I got it early and had Haer Dalis sniping with it constantly, it was very nice. The big problem is the attacks per round though, it is very slow - that mi...

I am playing a game with no paladin, and with Haer Dalis picking up Carsomyr (currently in Saradush). Haer Dalis is one of the 3 front-line fighters in the party and I would not say he is "effective" with Carsomyr particularly. He can use it, yes, and he has proficiency in it, but the number of atta...
