To dual class into a druid, you gotta also pump Charisma and Wisdom to 17. And you have to be True Neutral.

Call for allies? Also, do I need to patch?

Hi guys, well I got the two games together as a gift this week http://www.gamebanshee.com/ubb/smile.gif , and have three minor questions. 1) What is "call for allies"? An enemy AI thing? 2) Is this "call" implemented from the very beginning of IWD if HOW is installed? 3) Do I need to patch IWD to 1....

He probably found this out already, but that "warehouse" area is just one of the entrances into the Shadow Thief secret lair. Which of course is only accessible by paying Galen "Coo!"-boy and picking up his key.

1) Swashbucklers get the full thieving percentage points per level as a regular thief. Or more likely, the most of any thief kit if all you play is kits (25 pts per level). 2) Swashbucklers HOWEVER have some bugs with what weapons they can SPECIALIZE in.

It is my understanding that the knighthood quest will always occur, no matter if you stop the romance. In fact, stopping the romance should speed up the "timing" of the Knighthood quest. However, I believe Anomen has to do some quests and gain some levels before the knighthood is granted, so finish ...

I always find that at least 2 lower resistances, then 2 greater malisons, then whatever spell afterwards does the trick. Feeblemind, ray of enfeeblement, finger of death, nature's beauty, slay living (maybe) etc. It's cool to get the last spell using a ranger/cleric...

No, you can cast it anywhere, but I believe your wisdom needs to be more than adequate to receive the correct option...If not, as soon as the Dao Djinni appears, immediately get someone else with high wisdom to talk to him, instead of waiting for the Dao to talk to the spellcaster. You can buy Limit...

That's actually not a very bad idea at all; most people just forge it but then they lose two potential items that add strength (gauntlets of ogre power, girdle of xxxx giant) I say that if you use a predominately fighter mentality and use four members of your party in melee combat, it may suit you t...

Definitely all the script options that could be taken would render the process of complete voice overs a very expensive proposition.

I agree with Giles and Hellion. I relied on at most 3 offensive spells throughout the game, even though I had the breadnbutter fireball.
