What Gawain said - I will give it another peek though when it goes F2P. The story lines are still amazing for an MMO ( Or really any game ) Certainly on par with KOTOR I or II. It feels more like a single player game that should have had client side hosting for multi player. That would have been tru...

Full install.

Should be an option when you install. If might only be a SOA option been awhile since I played. :)

5th CD. I recall that happening to me as well once upon a time. It seems as if you do a full install for both SOA and ToB the 5th CD does not cause a problem. I know of no better forums than Gamebanshees for Baldurs Gate. You might want to take a peek in the ToB forum as well. Hope that helps.

Solo Ascension. Playing solo Ascension is nigh impossible with level cap. Unless your running some funky mods that give you an advantage. It is the final battle that gets you every time. If your playing with the just the patch and the ascension mod and you manage it post about it. Beating the game ...

Broken Wish Spell?

Hi Folks,

Anyone know if the option to: 'regain all spells as if the party had just rested was removed?'

Finally got the wish spell again and noticing that option never comes up.

Wave -vs- Stasis.

Prefer statsis as a lightsider. Wave is neutral so better suited for going dark and looking for stun sneak attack.

Worked great on my last scoundrel/guardian run.

Triple Class. Just finished a f/mu/t lot of fun to play but limited imho, because they do not get 9th level spells unless you cast them off a scroll. Never tried a f/mu/c. CLAM's (cleric/mu) used to be the toughest class in the original NWN might have to try one, toying with the idea of going throu...

Thanks for the hints Littiz. :) Will try cold for Yaga, sometimes Sendai drops quick sometimes not. Will continue to go for her first.

Swashbuckler up to improved Abazigal battle is not too tough. That is when it gets very hard very quick. If you kill all the dragons (there are a ton) and save Abi for last it is doable.
