The blade of searing is a bastard sword +3 which deals and exta point of fire damage. Pretty sucky really. Bastard swords got screwed over big time in BG2. I've actually created some of my own.

Another quick suggestion...

Custom Colours. Instead of giving us that crappy, and very limited, pallete of colours for changing major and minor colour, it would be nice if they gave us more control. I mean, the game supports 32 bit colour, so why not give us a custom colour chart in which we can choose any colour we like! And ...

Axes

I think axes should be upgraded from 1d8 to 2d4 like Bastard swords. Since they have the same speeds. I wouldn't mind seeing a couple more axes in the expansion either... having two mellee and two decent throwing axes just isn't enough dammit! http://www.gamebanshee.com/ubb/biggrin.gif It would be n...

The Seas's Bounty in the Docks. Just something about listening to the music there and chatting with the barkeep.

Five Flagons inn is also cool. I guess I just like the tavern music Image

Rail posted:

Choose the appearance of your armor (wicked, righteous, or varying degrees in between).


I like that suggestion a lot! I personally would love to have some awesome looking armour like Sarevok's! Image

Honestly, I would like to see the entire character paper dolls and avatars revamped completely. Fighters should look like propper beefy fighters. Rangers should actually have cloaks and hooded appearances. Paladins should look like the god worshiping holy men they are (shiny armour, clean polish and...

You put Equaliser against Celestial Fury and theres no hope for it. I would have liked to get equaliser earlier on. I just dislike coming out at chapter 6 and having every single weapon to forge at once. They could have broken it up a little, hence my reasoning as to why they should have put pieces ...

1) A quiver to hold all the friggen arrows your archer collects (functions like gem bag or scroll bag, just for arrows instead) 2) The ability to tell from the store if you've memorised a particular spell already 3) Some more varied weapons. (more decent bastard swords, axes and shortswords come to ...

You don't need a +4 weapon to kill Kangaxx in his Demi-Lich form. You can simply use a flame tongue +1 and yahoo... although that is considered +4 against undead...

I digress...

Same way you kill beholders. If you have an thief, then your hide in shadows ability can be useful to scout the area. Your mage can then cast area effect spells like deathspell, ice storm and so on. Summoned monsters work great too with combination of your fighters. Send in the animals and have your...

I just recently went back to BG1 and tried an elven Ranger/Cleric Multi-class. It was really fun and I loved both druid and cleric spell abilities. I guess the best thing about going back to BG1 was the storyline. I found it much better than BG2. Don't get me wrong, I love BG2 and the storyline is g...
