Postby h_parsons » Sat Jan 19, 2013 4:20 pm

Im playing SCS II for the first time, and I was fighting Rayic Gethras the cowled enforcer in the Docks and he casted Improved Invisibility and Protection from Magic: Divination any ideas on how to get around this.

If you want to bring down Improved Invisibility, Dispel/Remove Magic should do the trick.
But unless he has PfMW or Mantle, you could simply use physical damage.

Woah, someone actually giving tactical advice on these forums! I can safely retire now!

If you have that component installed, you can also use spell thrust, secret word or ruby ray to remove his SI.
Seeing how Ruby Ray is from a different school than ST and SW, you can cycle between these to counter those infamous double-immunity combo's that you sometimes see in mods. (Undead Sola comes to mind)

Lastly, scroll-cast spells as well as those from contingencies ignore invisibility.

Improved Invisibility should have a shorter time span (x caster level) than regular invisibility (1 day?). You may simply be able to outlast him.

Cool thanks for the help I am going to have to find some secret word and spell thrust scrolls somewhere.
Anybody have any good spell recommendations for level 3 and 4 spell levels?
