I also agree that if you have Keldorn, you should put points on dual-wielding, long sword and in morningstar. Why? Fighting trolls and Golems? Flail of Ages, Undead? Daystar, Dragons? Dragonslayer. With dual-wielding, you can keep Flai of Ages in one hand and put other long sword into action. You al...

Did you kill him before you freed him? You need to fight him after you do this If not, you should have a wardstone somewhere that opens the next level. It may be that if you went through SoA you may have lost the stone fighting a Nishruu or something like that. Is there nothing in the floor where yo...

After you start playing ToB, forget your puny elementals. The Devas and Planetars actually can take some heavy monster damage, and they are not as traitorous as the Pit Fiends

I play with a human Paladin/Cavalier (not sure on the level, but must be very high by now). I decided the bonus you get for killing the dragons and the inmunity from fear is more than enough for me, and I never use an archer type main character. He is traveling with Minsc (his pal from all the way b...

I took him to the fire library where it turned into an air elemental and hit him with every single fire arrow, fire spell and fire sword I had. Eventually, it laid dead. Ohh, BTW, my character (a paladin) drank like 6 super helaing potions to stay alive. But the task was done.

What's more profitable to do with demigorgon?

In terms of experience and loot, what's the best thing to do with demigorgon?

Kill it outright? Seal it the first time and then latter confront the knights? or not using the scroll and tricking the knights into entering the keep?
Also, can you loot the knights? and do they have any good weapon?
