Yea, that write up has quite a few errors, but at least they fixed Greater Malison. Oh, and I TOTALLY agree that invisible stalker is by far one of the most useful summoning spells before you hit level 15 and get those skeleton warriors. They just kick ass vs. the kinds of monsters that make you wan...

If you have an ATI video card, do not use the OpenGL 3d rendering option. This is a known issue with the game, and Bioware is aware of the problem. Besides, I don't see a huge difference between 3d and 2d rendering.

No, lower is better in every case. Enemies of higher levels will have LOWER THAC0s and LOWER ACs. Which means they'll be harder to hit and they'll be more likely to hit you. Which come to think of, is not such a good thing unless you have a beefy character http://www.gamebanshee.com/ubb/wink.gif . I...

I think I have heard of this bug. You wouldn't happen to have an ATI video card, would you?

AD&D combat is actually pretty simple. The manual explains a little about it, but doesn't really do the system justice though. So I'll elaborate a little. THAC0 means "To Hit At Armor Class 0". Take a look at your character's or your party NPCs THAC0s. The smaller the number, the more effective they...

You can actually do both. First trick them, then kill them. You get the most experience that way.

Yes, the amulet grants Edwin 2 extra spells per level as well as the +1 spell per level for being a specialist (Conjurer). So he really has +3 spells per level, which make him the best mage NPC in the game. Only downside is that he's a specialist, which means he can't identify things, even with a sc...

Sounds like somebody got their hands on Lilarcor, the best sword ever. Too bad Minsc never seems to respond to it, maybe they can make him and the sword have a weird relationship in the expansion or something. Not that he doesn't already have a weird relationship with Boo.....

I am convinced siding with the thieves is the best "power gamer's" option. Think about it: A) Vampires are worth more XP per kill. B) Certain characters will quit or voice displeasure if you side with the vamps. C) Instant amulet of power, which conveniently prevents level drain. D) You're gonna kic...

You won't find him, unless you side with the Shadow Thieves. Too bad, he's such a good mage too....Anyhow, if you really want him that bad, you'll have to reload a game, and kick vampire ass instead of vice versa.

As long as you complete the quest within 2 weeks (game time), it shouldn't be a problem. Otherwise, yes, the curse kills her. It's a short quest to complete anyhow, so it's better to do it sooner than later. That way, her stats are returned to normal.

If this is the golem that is at the D'Arnise Keep and you have Yoshimo in your party, you're in luck. That big sucker is too big to squeeze through the door, so use that to your advantage. Turn the golem hostile, and retreat through the door. Then have Yoshimo plant a few traps in the doorway. Those...
