I usually kill Faldorn... in BG2, that is ;)

I've never tried bards; the only one I've considered using is Haer'Dalis, but he's a bit of a weakling.

Yeah but he's suitably gloomy, so I tend to bring him along.

Haer' Dalis is funny: :)

Is interactions with Aerie and Jan: ROFLMAO ! :-D

The funniest feature is BG2 is a tie between Lord Rumar and his wife and Jan explaining why taking Milk Baths are bad for your health :rofl:

I'm currently playing solo, and here's a bug: I've stopped levelling up. I'm multi-class thief/mage and I've stopped at 400K exp points in each class. That's it, it won't go any higher...

Strange... that is a bug I never heard of...

It's too soon for the level cap though (it's somewhere in the million Exp)

Your sure it's 800K, not 8.000K ?

If it's 8000K, you've probably reached your level cap :(

I dumped Montaron and Xzar and picked up Safana. In Baldur's Gate Trilogy, her weapon skills are HORRIBLE. Dagger and Dart. I think I'll stick with 5 party members so that Safana gets as much exp as needed for her to catch up.

I forgot about her weapons skills :wall:
But she's is worth it, belive me, she's better than Skie (or Eldoth). Btw, you don't need to have 5 party members (you'll get more expirience for that). And catching up with Thieves is easy, they (along with Bards) level-up the fastest.

It must be the level cap. I don't know it by hart though, as I never got past chapter four (see above posts), but I DO know that the level cap is higher if you got Throne of Bhaal as well.

I've got ToB and everything, but since I'm playing solo all the exp. goes to me, and I've imported this character from a half-played game already...

Incidentally, since I'm a mage, I just sold Crom Feyr. It's easily the best weapon in the game, and should be worth more than 4500,- I think.... Should be worth at least 20 G's.

I'm playing through Baldur's Gate and ToSC using Baldur's Gate trilogy right now. I'm on the bottom level of Durlag's tower now, and my next step in the main quest would be to speak with Scar's boss, the commander of the Flaming Fist.
I haven't gone to the Werewolf Island yet, and I'm wondering if I should do that before I finish Durlag's Tower and go to Ulgoth's Beard to have the final battle.

I never got into the 1st one, but BG2 is awesome. If I had tales of the sword coast I would download BGT, but I'm not paying $20 for it. Maybe I'll just pirate it....not.

I usually wrap things up right away, since going back and forth makes me forget things. Take the boss, I say. Knock out his mirror, run away and have the things fight each other while casting a couple of bad area spells like cloud kill down there.

Well, that demon is the easy one. The one in the Beard, now that's trickier. the only way I've found to kill it is by summoning creatures to fill the screen so that we has something else to direct his gaze at, preper lots of dispels, and hope.

...but, but... Since I'm playing BG:Trilogy, as in on the BG2 engine, I'm limited to about five total summons at a time.

I'm ****, am I not?

REVIVAL:

Hey, I'm playing BG again (The First Edition). I'm currently having a party with Imoen (dual-classed as a Conjurer), Safana, Branwen and Kivan. (My PC is a Paladin)

Any Suggestions for a sixth Party member? I'm currently in doubt between Shar-Teel and Yeslick.

thanks.

Just rounded the Watcher's Keep in BG2:ToB. I still think it isn't as well put together as BG1's Durlag's Tower, although it is larger and has more side plots. Durlag's Tower is just epic.
