Yup, the darkest day, a very good mod for BG 2. I'm playing it only on hard, and trust me, that is MORE than tough enough. Sadly, I admit I had to turn it down to NOVICE to get past some sections.
There are some amazing new pieces of equipment, NPC's back from Bg1, new quests, and 75!!! New kits. OUTSTANDING. Add on all the new spells and presto, awesome. My one complaint is it crashes a bit. More like a lot
So far, all I've run into is the usual this and that, but they are substantially tougher. The Irenicus dungeon is 100X tougher, especially before the patch. Like Musashi, I havent met up with any big baddies, except for the Greater Werewolves, who are IMMUNE to everything except for magical damage, which they are resistant too. Note, avoid fighting these guys unless you have several spellcasters with plenty of Offensive spells, and then only 1 at a time. Right now, I have Myself, a Blade singer, Jaheria, Valygar (who ROCKS) Yeslick, who is SO cut when I get out of the current dungeon, Adario the assasin, good enough, might drop him for Monty, and S'Hartel or some such thing, who is TERRIBLE, has a worse ac and deals less damage than minsc, and is Far less fun. Once I get back, I'm going to get Korgy, and Edwin in their place. If your looking for a very good spellcaster, get Robilliard, hes great, but he comes at a heavy price hehehehe. I'll leave that for you to find out.
The waves came crashing in like blindness.
So I just stood and listened.
