Oh well. I had hoped to avoid hacking the game, even if it is to replace something I SHOULD have.
Having never used Shadowkeeper, is there an item code I need for the holy symbol?

Thank you for your assistance,

Holy symbol for Watcher's Keep...Missing!?!

I cleared the 1st level of Watcher's Keep while playing SoA, finished SoA, and have begun playing Throne of Bhaal. I have defeated Yaga Shura, and was planning on finishing Watcher's Keep before continuing the ToB storyline. Problem is, the holy symbol required to enter Watcher's is missing from my ...

If you plan on playing ToB as well as SoA, I suggest dualing over to mage at Level 13, not 9. You will get one more weapon proficiency to spend as a Kensai, and at level 13 you maximize your attacks/round with a specialized (or better) weapon. If you were to reach the XP cap in ToB, this character w...

In PnP AD&D, the bags of holding did have an interior volume listed. In BG2, I believe it is a strict number of items, regardless of weight/size.

Where do you find potion bags and ammo pouches?

The only class I'd suggest you DON'T take for your first time playing would be a straight Mage, or Sorceror. They are very powerful at high levels, but are more difficult to keep alive early in the game. All the classes will now gain amazing high level abilities, so you can't choose wrong...

For awhile, I had Imoen's contingency set to trigger a Fireshield, if she became unconscious or held. This allows your allies to lay down healing without injury, but any enemies attacking will take damage, hopefully slowing them down long enough for aid to arrive. I don't think it's an end-all beat-...

Well, if this is your 1st time playing BG2, you don't want a party of 6 PCs. The NPC interactions are crucial to the flow of the storyline. I played a single player game, with 5 NPCs my first time through. This time through, I'm creating 3 PCs, and will add 3 NPCs. I'd suggest taking #s 2,4, and 5, ...

I plan on dualing a fighter over to mage at level 13. When maxed out on xps, this will be a 13/28 Fighter/Mage. I'll miss out on a couple of the 10th lvl spells, but my HPs, THACO, and melee capability easily make up for a few less spells. Also, at 13th lvl, your fighter gets 2 attacks per round.
