  1. And no, there's never too many spells, Demi's argument about the 24 spells per level is flawed[...].

    Let's agree to disagree :p For me the limit has literally nothing to do with sorcerer-selectable spells, and all to do with avoiding a spam-amount of available spells. But then again, we already had this argument over in Item Revisions, didn't we ;)

  2. - within IR items have a portrait icon only if they completely match a spell (that's the compromise I accepted, because if it was for me items would not have portrait icons at all). That robe doesn't grant 100% acid res like ProAcid spell, nor it prevent you from casting ProAcid on yourself. Examples of where an icon should be displayed now are Ring of Free Action (grants you full FA and makes it irrelevant casting the spell on the wearer) or Skin of the Forest (grants you +4 AC but cannot be stacked with SR's Barkskin, thus the portrait icon is there).

     

    I feel that's sensible!

  3. Stone to Flesh / Flesh to Stone and Improved Slow

    I don't like that Improved Slow (if it is introduced) is going to be a 'mass' spell. It breaks symmetry and breaks it badly IMHO.

    Huh? I thought it was the other way around, that it's symmetric with Mass Hate?

  4. What jarno said. A fighter->mage 7/1 is not a more powerful mage than a level 2 mage. In magical things, mind you. Which is what a familiar is about.

     

    It's even more evident if you switch it around, a mage->thief 3/25 shouldn't have their familiar be ultra powerful as the mage is still a clown at magic.

     

    EDIT:

    @kreso: IIRC a familiar could pretty much be all of the above. It's either a "natural" creature that gets imbued with a smattering of magical power when it becomes a familiar (a cat, for example). You could also gate a small create and bind it to you (imp) or have a semi-magical creature attach itself to your company (faerie dragon). In all cases the power of the familiar is basically linked to the magical prowess of the master.

    [bG1:EE]

    Regarding Offensive and Defensive Stance: Anyway to confirm they give the bonus - dmg and AC respectively? I see the THAC0 malus, but I can't tell if I receive any dmg increase or AC bonus.

    They should show up in the games feedback ones you go and enable that.

    So: Options -> Gameplay -> Feedback -> To hit rolls.

     

    As I said, I've no problem with the THAC0 changing, and that's what To hit rolls show ;) I could of course have had another NPC hit charname instead to see if my AC had changed, but oh well.

    They do. Damage bonus you won't see unless you play old BG2 (Tobex has an option to see every bonus/malus on rolls ie. luck, berserk, proficiency, base roll, Bless, strenght, whatever - EE can apperantly only dream of that :(. Sigh. See screenshot here to see what I'm talking bout. ).

    AC bonus is implemented as "bonus vs weapon type" so it bypasses the hardcoded cap of -20 (+dex + single weapon style). You can see it in the character sheet as AC vs blunt, missile etc., similar to wearing a girlde of piercing/whatever.

     

    Ah cheers. I tried wailing on Imoen forever - like 20 hits while she was chugging potions - but couldn't discern if the average damage was at all higher. I should have tried with a less damaging weapon I suppose. And indeed, there the AC bonus shows up nicely. It's been too long since I played, I should know to look for AC there on any mod by Demi :)

    I have a pretty awkward bug with Beta 20. Playing as a True Fighter, and when I reached level 5 all my previous proficiencies were removed. The 5th level "becomes proficient (+) in the use of all types of weapons" seemingly overwrote my 3+2 pips in Bastard Sword + Axe into 1 pip in everything.

     

    EDIT: Ok that's not the extent of the problem. It seems all F/X multi-classes also gets the benefit of a True Fighters level 5 multi-proficiency bonus. Both Jaheira (F/D) and Khalid (F/M) loses all pips on level 5 and gets one pip in all profs that their class allow.

    EE issue. I used EEKeeper to revert back when I was playing EE, but nowdays I delete this effect from fighters before I install KR, since it makes SCS install on top of KR faster, then cheat it back in when I start the game.

    Multis are prone to mishibaving (i.e. IR has an option to remove limitations from either Druid or Cleric or both - KR doesn't account for that).

     

    EDIT2: Yeah they also get the True Fighter innates, like stances and so forth.

    They should.

     

     

    EDIT3: So, how is Called Shot supposed to work? I thought I'd get a sub-menu for Disarm or Trip, but I don't.

     

    Weidu-log - it's a bit sub optimal at the end as I decided to try out KR pretty late, and Thrown Hammers is just there to see if it even works with BG1EE (it does, even though there's some weirdness I believe is related to having IR installed before):

    A la Spell Immunity spell (pool vanishes if you do anything apart use click on one of two icons). Odd that it doesn't work for you, it works on my install, just tested on EE1. Try using "Autopause - spell cast".

     

    Good answers all, thank you. And indeed Called Shot is WAD, I was just too weirded out by the first issue to analyse it correctly.

     

    Well, I've done a run with BG1:EE and I'm not super-awed; time to go back to BGT I think.
