Help with Chapter 6 Bodhi


Recommended Posts

I'm getting destroyed by Bodhi in Chapter 6 and could use some help understanding how to win this particular battle. I've beaten Firkraag, the Shadow Dragon and Kangaax, but fifteen tries at Bodhi and the best I've done is to get her to her second form, and to kill one of the two vampire wizards. They regenerate insanely quickly! I'm playing an evil party with myself (Fighter dualed to Mage), Imoen, Korgan and Viconia. We have the best equipment available in SoA, and all the spells (up to level 8) that matter. I've tried a variety of sequencers and spell triggers, without any luck. I don't have access to Time Stop or Improved Alacrity yet, and brute force melee using Tensers is a big fail. The "blood drinking" ability from Bodhi eventually kills (or gibs) Korgan, and then we're all dead.

 

Help?!

protection form magic weapons on your protagonist ALL the time. Tank her all the time and keep her away from other party members. PFMW should protect you from "drink blood". lower resistance x3 first and then fried the bitch with flame arrowx3 from sequencers. Daystar has sunray - use it!! Viconia should help you - sunray again. toasted vampires.

you should find one scroll in Temple Ruins. at least two shopkeepers should have pfmw. the guy in tent in Trademeet (next to dijnni tent) should have it. that little fella near Neb's house (IIRC he only appears at sundown, 6 pm or something) have pfmw. he also sells improved haste - essential spell against Bodhi!

 

I told you already how to deal with her minions. Cast sunray 7th lvl cleric spell, don't tell me that Viccy can't cast 7lvl spells yet, lol. Do you have a Daystar sword?? You can cast sunray 1xday from Daystar. Improved Mace of Disruption? Do you have it?

 

You have SCS installed? Tactics Bodhi or "toned down" Bodhi? Original Tactics Bodhi is immune to sunray, toned down version probably too. but her minions are not immune. Afaik Sunray completely ignores spell and combat protections - toss a greater malison, let Viccy cast sunray, cast it yourself via Daystar at the same time and her minions are toasted. Take another party member like Minsc or Valygar and give him Improved Mace of Disruption or Azuredge. Take Keldorn with Carsomyr for some tasteful cheese - one carefully placed dispel magic will make your job much easier. Cast protection from cold, immunity abjuration, improved haste on fighters. In general take more fighters in the party. Tactics Bodhi has 4 attacks/round, drains 5 levels per hit, has 25 str and hits like a fucking train. and you wanna kill her with Korgan alone mano a vampiro? ??? brave soul you are.......

AFAICT and AFAIK they actually have exactly the same inventory. That is, if you buy an item from one, it disappears from the other's inventory. It's rather disconcerting if/when you notice it in-game.

 

(EDIT: There is at least one other merchant pair that behaves the same in BG1.)

Doesn't a Trademeet merchant (north of the statues) have a twin on Spellhold island? I remember the Spellhold one having some stuff in inventory that I know I had sold in Trademeet.
