"Pretty much every spell can be put to use. Short of maybe Detect Evil and infravision. But even Detect Evil has one use in the game, its pointless but nonetheless. " Infravision is useless; Detect Evil has a couple of uses; it allow you to predict what will happend in a couple of quests; I heard it...

Unpopular Spells you like and how/when to use them efectively.

This is a thread for uncommonly used spells and why you like them or how to use them (even when they are not really powerful) I will start; I love "to hit" spells; thosa that you cast and then have ot hit the enenmy to have any efect; Like Shocking Gasp; Althoguh they are not very good to regular ma...

"in practice in bg2 any fighter type w/ the flail of ages backed with either a debuffing mage or keldorn + holy avenger is going to be ready to savage mages. they would retain the flexibility to use more items and perhaps be better served vs non mages.

Also, in TOB Fighter get a special ability in which they do 10 attacks per round for a limited time. This, to a Wizard Slayers means completely incapacitating any magic user Before he can end casting his first spell

"(I wonder if hitting a mirror image is considered a hit)" It is. If you can read "Hit" and is not followed by "weapon has no effect", it counts. "Strength is not to be neglected, the difference between 19str, and a generic WS cant get it until ToB areas, but lets assume its a half-orc. the differen...

"He would be much more useful if there were be more enemies casting stoneskins. As for now, other than the two end game bosses(tactic'ed, ascension'ed) i can think of anything where his abilities would be useful. " Are you talking about Bg2? Becouse in my game (no mods) every single mage cast either...

"Arcane failure sounds good in theory. However, most of the time, if you got past the wizards defenses enough that you can actually hit him then he's already dead anyways. Also, if you hit him, when he's casting spells then he'll miscast them anyways. So that special ability is really not that usefu...

If you bring her along and threathen to kill her aunt, she asks if you are serious; if you insist on the idea of killing her, Nalia gets angry and tell that he didnt knew commoners could be so angry and resentful, and leaves your party to wait you outside of the fort. If you kill her aunt she wont r...

Wizard Slayer is the most underrrated class, and Probably the best fighter kit

Yes, I said it and believe it.

the 10 percent acomulative bonus to spell failure is just amazing, and the magic resistance in the long run is very helpfull; I really dont know why this class is unanimously considered as one of the worst.

Nalia is a problem; as If you bring her along in her quest you cant kill the aunt (which was my plan all along) and the doesnt have any other family memebers; I will try the cementery quest attacking his to be husband; but i doubt she will defen...
