Moongaze Posted June 21, 2005 Share Posted June 21, 2005 Arcane Nalia I've wondered...why is a noble like Nalia a thief? Sure, they wanted to give her a Robin Hood-like theme, but quite honestly...a level 4 thief doesn't do much in BG2, except when you start using potions and such. Aside from that, there are three Mage/Thief characters in the original game, two of which dualclassed, and only one single-classed mage, who can't even use Identify. My suggestion? Change Nalia into a single-classed Invoker. Give her a normal staff and 40 normal darts as her initial equipment, and change her spellbook to avoid including Conjuration/Summoning spells. These lost spells can be replaced with some equally useful spells from other schools (Agannazer's Scorcher instead of Acid Arrow, for example). Her stats could remain as they are. Yes, Nalia's thief class makes sense in the story, I suppose, but that's beside the point. -------------------------------------------- Valygar Tweaks Valygar is wary of arcane magic. He doesn't trust it. Then...um...why is he a Stalker, who get three arcane spells as priest spells? Change him into an Archer or Ranger instead. That way he will retain his ranger-like nature, while not including any arcane magic into his available spells. Alternately, just remove the three arcane spells from his book (though that would be a disadvantage to his Stalker kit). Or perhaps change Valygar's kit into Wizard Slayer. Valygar's leather armor is quite powerful. The only stronger suit of leather I've encountered is the Shadow Dragon Scale, in SoA at least. It offers a lot of protection and a great AC. In comparison to other NPC's, his armor is probably one of the most powerful NPC-linked item available. I'd suggest toning it down a little, offering a weaker AC bonus and removing some of those extra resistances, now giving a protection against magic. --------------------------------------------- Anomen Tweaks When Anomen fails his test, he gains nothing special, aside from different dialogues. I'd say...when he turns to Chaotic Neutral, change his charisma to 11 or 10, and raise his wisdom to 14. Hopefully that will better reflect his more rebellion personality, and the fact he has learned something new from his bad experiences. That's all. I just thought of them yesterday. Feel free to disagree with me. I'm probably one of the few who thinks this way, anyways. Quote Link to comment
