@Loredweller
I believe we are talking about multiclass not dual class.

There are time stop scrolls but they are generated randomly mostly. I found 2 in my last game although i never used them. One can be found in the room where you save Priestess Demin from those Rakshakas i believe.

It should work if you cast Tensers Transformation then use offensive spin.

It won't work if you use offensive spin first cause your spells will be disabled.

It won't work if you cast haste or improved haste first because offensive spin cannot be used in conjunction with haste.

Just so you know...Project image and Similacrum are not as effective without Wizard Eye because they are considered summoned creature and cannot see the map if you walk out of your party's vision range with them. In my opinion leave similacrum out...Project image is way more powerful and you can cas...

No you cannot...sorry. However you still are very powerful because you can memorize level 6 spells and backstab very effectively. Let the pure mages worry about level 7-9 spells

Int drain from mindflayers cuts through any kind magic resistance as it works as long as they roll enough to hit you. Even drizzt would fall if they manage to hit him.

the cloak sometimes allows certain spells to get through...might be a bug or not...i'm sure i saw that somewhere on this board.

It is possible that you get this dream depending on how many days you play. Most people, myself included, finish the game in less than 40 - 50 game days even solo...it may be something that gets triggered at the tethir forest only if you've played past a certain number of game days?

@Nam

you are probably right...however there is only one damage dealing spell with no saving throw...horrid wilting...and i guess wearing the cloak of mirroring it never hit me either...or something, cause i never took any spell damage by level 21.

You are correct a barbarian changed into the rat will have more than 100% resistance to physical damage. This is because you already have 10 or 15% resistance, changing to a rat adds another 90% or so. This is very handy for a solo barbarian or for me a duet with jahaira. because I can be the tank w...
