My favorite battle-tactic, though it is not very fair for the monsters, is to throw all five shielddarven barbarian tanks right onto the enemy and during battle, I let the wounded tanks run in circles around the mayhem and everytime he runs past the cleric, he gets a heal. The tank runs by the cleri...

Nope, I can add to this, that I carried the most precious genie-bottle all the way until chapter five, then my cleric (the only raiser in the group) died, and I tried to wish him back. The genie works just like a transportable temple cleric, who can be summoned at will. But not even he could raise m...

In the battle square you see nine squares. You can summon monsters to help you, but they must stand neither in the middle square, nor outside the battlesquares or they'll disappear when the battle begins. Place them in the eight outer squares and they'll stay.

You can enable HOF difficulty in the Icewind dale configuration program which is located in a folder somewhere in the start menu. It's a checkbox.

One thing you might consider as well is, that a critical hit doesn't multiplay the added elemental damage.

I really prefer weapon+x over a weapon +elemental damage.

Mask and Ogma are not that bad, because they are the only two which get the "Executioner's eyes" spell at level 17... Other than that, I'll stick with Lathander for: meteor swarm + 20% damage from spirit of flame feat, greater restoration, raise dead, and the Aura of Vitality, which really kicks.

With the blindfight feat. your character will fight blinded as good as if he could see. But this has a few more consequences. Since fighting an invisible enemy is similar to a blind man, who fights a visible opponent, your character will get many bonuses when fightning invisible enemies. For example...

Just theorizing loudly: A scimitar has critical range 18-20.. Keen scimitar: 17-20. Improved critical feat: 16-20 Executioner's Eyes: 12-20.. That makes 40% chance for a critical hit. Let's assume a barbarian with 4 attacks. *) He would have ~2.6% chance of inflicting 4 criticals in a combat round, ...

It's a level 7 clerical spell. I stuns all enemies in a huge radius for one round (if the cleric invokes the next word immediately afterwards, the enemies will just keep stunned) Might not sound so impressing, but.. Stunned targets are automatically hit (good for power attack and to hit those"insane...

Why is heart of fury a pain?
I started iwd2 immediately in hof mode after I bought it with a all-level 1 party. You die a lot more often, so it takes longer. But you also have the fun longer.

They obviously made a bug in improved invisibility. Neither the rules nor any of the predecessor infinity games allow a character to attack with i.i. without getting fought back. As far as I remember, in the 3rd edition rules it says: When one attacks while improved invis, he will become partially v...
