I can beat many monsters to death with shear force and numbers, but the most annoying thing is when you get imprisoned by those elder orbs. One minute you are reflecting rays back to them, the next you get imprisoned, that's just pain in the neck. Even dragons, umber hulks, golems and minflayers can...

The best ability of the Crom Faeyr is the 25 str. It adds a lot of damage and to-hit, especially the jump from 24 to 25. Wear it offhand because it will help your other weapon a lot. Celestial fury is perfect unless it is someone who is immune to stun or +3 weapons. So definitely Crom in the offhand...

If you have installed TOB, then you NPC can wield the holy avenger as well. Besides, Keldorn's dex is crap... Why limit yourself in party selection? Try to go to Umar Hills and Trademeet, and you will see some nice characters. Jan is a good character and you can never have too many thieves/illusioni...

I will used some logical theories that is consistent with this world. Personally I think it is cheating to a degree, because you are exploiting something that wasn't meant to be. We can steal stuff from people, but we will never sell it back to those we steal from, do we? Realistically, you will paw...

So after two battles, you will go to sleep, right? That will take a while.

Also, I think Priest of Lathander are the good priest, and stealing the holy symbol seems to collide with his/her nature.

Otherwise, a very interesting way to buff up your characters...

Special abilities for anomen is at 25, not 20. You will have to play for a little longer. I think special abilities are over powering in SOA.

In hindsight, it is pretty logical idea for the merchants to move inside the buildings... but I would never have guessed that!

The door you are trying to open shouldn't be on the building of desolar inn, try the ones lower :D :D :D

Even in single player, there are so many NPC to join, so you can enjoy their interaction/quest more. There are so many ways to play this game but like the others, choose core rules single players.

The wizard will apparently keep showing up wherever you are, even if you avoid him the first time.

Maybe you should try to spawn those items in Hell or TOB, because it will be very weird if he shows up then :eek: .
