Insane difficulty

In real life if you get stabbed you die like instantly so I try to accomodate this in the game by playing it in insane mode. This is awesome! These rune assassins do 90 damage every time and the only person in the party who don't get hacked into chunks of meat is Minsc! Mages you meet cast magic mis...

Robe of vecna

I don't like its green (green!) color in the expansion, how can I change it back to red&yellow as it was in Shadows of Amn?

Magic Missile

I don't like the new magic missile graphic in the expansion. Does anyone know how to turn it back to the way it was in Shadows of Amn?

Ah, so that's how you do it... I killed him because I never found out a way to do it. Nalia says, "He must be charmed!" Whatever, I just put him out of his misery, for his own good... I suppose you get more XP for doing it the non-violent way. Oh well, at least I got to loot his full plate mail.

Interesting. It would be a cruel irony if you unleashed them at Bodhi herself.

Speaking of which, has anyone manage to use turn undead on Bodhi?? It would be SO cool. :)

I thought Tanova was that vampire in Bodhi's crypt when you clear it for the first time. Well, anyway, she's a vampire mage all right. I had trouble with her too, and unconcernedly used Silence 15" Radius on her, and she didn't make the save and so was silenced. I disrupted her Vocalize casting and ...

There was a problem. Some NPCs like Bernard and Mae'var and so on wouldn't talk: "blah blah appears busy." But then, the patch fixed it, and there's no problem at all now. XP is great.. it even does translations for you.. which is excellent for my French class.. anyway, cheers..

Spell sequencer doesn't work

Okay, I put in three Skull Traps and used it, but nothing happens and it just tells me "One of the spells has failed." three times. Oh, and one more thing, I put two Lower Resistance and one Greater Malison in contingency and set it to "enemy sighted," but when it goes off the spells cast on ME rath...

As for your first question, I encountered it in Bioware's "known issues" page. I think you have to change your display settings a lot lower just for the process. It's some OpenGL compability thing.

Yes, this is the exact problem I'm having. Game crashes without any message, it's excruciating. :mad: :mad: :mad:

Sometimes it says "Assertion failed at ChDataType.cpp at line number 250." How kind!

Walk to the right once you're in FAI area along the southern map border (for a quite a bit actually), and you'll see a tree and a rock. In front of the tree, there's a little brown spot. Hunt there for the ring. For me it's always there. And the Ring of Protection, it's easy to find. On your way to ...
