I'm really peed off about the Mswords and their ammys. In SoA, I found that the greenstone amulets that they drop do not need charges used up in order to mindshield you - the effect is permanent while wearing them until you are affected by a dispel, in which case you just have to re-equip them. So w...

Also remember that you can look anywhere for anything. If you have TOB installed, you can hold down Tab to highlight things like chests, bookcases and loot that people drop. A problem that my cousin had is that he didn't want to pick up things from people's bodies - he was really into the role-playi...

I played mine when you couldn't even use potions - the Ioun Stone of regeneration is an essential piece of kit. The other good thing I found with the magic item restrictions is that you spread the loot around your party more, giving you a better rounded party - when playing a straight fighter/berser...

Slagging off Wizard Slayer?

The first time I played SoA, I looked through the various kits, and thought that the Wizard Slayer looked good. So I made one (Half-orc) and I completed the game with it. Now I have read all the arguments against this kit, and I found that they weren't any problem. I had him wielding Celestial Fury ...

In BG1, by talking to Eldoth Kron with two people simultaneously (I have never been able to repeat the feat) I got Biff the Understudy to join my party. All his stats are 9 and he has about 10 hitpoints. I tried playing him, and that was masochistic enough for me.

Ah, but Imoen from the beginning is immortal because she has to get to the surface to be kidnapped. If she gets to 1 HP, she runs off saying "I'm not hanging around here waiting to get killed". Not the best choice for a party...I suggest taking Solaufein, along with a Mind Flayer for their instakill...

thnx all. @jeremiah: I bet the way out all three times, and he didn't attack me. Do you mean asking him to bet the Scepter Gem? I also just read that it was 7 days in the (usually rubbish) GameSpot guide. Buck, if you're reading this, your strat guide needs to be updated. @UserUnfriendly: I didn't w...

The helm of Balduran is always in the game, whether you have imported your game or not. It's on the first level of JonI's dungeon, in the room north of the dryads. The cloak does not come across, I cheated it into my party. The merchant in the adventurers mart(who you get with the bonus pack) sells ...

I agree with sigurd that you should only create one player and use NPCs all the rest of the time. If you like the look of an archer, go for it, as they are easy to play first time round. If you played that, this is my idea of a good party for you. Keldorn Minsc Jaheira/Anomen (ya I hate him too, but...

I imported my main char from BG1, cheaply dropping all my items on the ground at the start etc., so I had Kiel's Buckler from Durlag's Tower, which gives +1 to DEX as well as a +1 AC bonus (or you could create it, code SHLD20). Then I gave her the Firetooth dagger, and later on in the game the upgra...

Deck Of Many Things (SPOILERS)

I went to Watcher's Keep in Chapter 6. When I got to Aesgereth, I looked up the DOMT guide on this site, to get the most out of the thing. A couple of problems with it that I wanted to share before I report them... 1) Despite what it says, I was unable to pickpocket the Deck from Aesgereth. I had my...
