  1. Thank you all for the great input on the topic! Seems like the availability of cheap potions make HP regenerating items not too bad after all :)
  2. Hey all, I've been using the Item Revisions mod for a while and I absolutely love it, however I've noticed that a number of items (such as the Cloak of the Wolf in BG1) add an HP regenerating element to the items. Using the Cloak of the Wolf in BG1, for example, has effectively allowed me to never have to use a health potion on my main character (except for in combat, but even then it helps too, albeit slowly). Is this considered cheating? I ask since I don't believe BG1/BG2 had many or any items that allowed for HP regeneration. Also, is using the IR mod in general considered "cheating" if it's not used in conjunction with the difficulty increasing SCS mod? Let me know your thoughts, thanks so much!
  3. Since there haven’t been many replies I will assume my question didn’t make sense Let’s give it another try! As quoted above, it appears that the spell Remove Magic isn’t in the game or mod anymore. As such, I said to myself, that’s a bummer, since sometimes I like using Remove Magic, and sometimes I like using Dispel Magic (depending on the circumstances). So, I went into EEKeeper and researched to see if the Dispel Magic and Remove Magic spells were still available to use. What I found was that there was 1 Remove Magic and 10 different Dispel Magic spells to pick from, which I will list below. My question is simply this: if I still wanted to use both Remove Magic, as well as Dispel Magic, in the game, which of these should I use? Thanks so much! Remove Magic (OHBWI302) (Innate Level 1 Spell): Remove Magic (Abjuration) Level: 3 Range: 40 ft. Duration: Instant Casting Time: 3 Area of Effect: 30-ft. radius Saving Throw: None This is the combat version of Dispel Magic; it will only affect opponents. A Remove Magic dispels the magical effects upon any enemies within the area. This includes effects given from spells, potions, and certain magical items such as wands. It does not, however, affect enchanted magical items. The chance of the dispel succeeding is determined by the level of the caster and the level of the magic being dispelled. The base chance of successfully dispelling is 50%. For every level that the caster of Remove Magic is above the original caster, <PRO_HISHER> chance of success increases by 5%. For every level that the caster of Remove Magic is below the original caster, <PRO_HISHER> chance of success decreases by 10%. However, despite the difference in levels, there is always at least a 1% chance of success or failure. Thus, if a caster is 10 levels higher than the magic <PRO_HESHE> is trying to dispel, there is only a 1% chance of failure. Similarly, if the caster is 4 levels lower than the magic <PRO_HESHE> is trying to dispel, there is only a 10% chance of success. Intuitively, this spell is almost useless if the target is 5 or more levels higher than the caster. Note: While this spell dispels the individual effects of Grease, Web, Stinking Cloud, and other such spells, it does not dispel the area of effect. Dispel Magic (SPIN112) (Innate Level 1 Spell): Remove Magic (Abjuration) Level: 3 Range: 40 ft.

  4. I guess the answer is neither? I'm looking for why I can't find Remove Magic in EE Keeper (in spell form, not innate), and reconcile that with the approx. 5 different Dispel Magic spells in EE Keeper, as well as the quote I quoted above regarding removing Remove Magic from the game. I need someone to tell me what I should choose. What's the correct Dispel Magic spell? What's the correct Remove Magic spell? What's the correct Inquisitor's Dispel Magic innate ability? Why was Remove Magic removed from the game? I hope that makes sense :-) - John
  5. Do you mind if I ask where the explanation exists for the removal of "Remove Magic"? I saw in a separate thread that there was some debate between the Paladin Inquisitor's Dispel Magic versus the use of it for normal party members, but just trying to wrap my head around the differences. Plus, when I go into EE Keeper it seems that Remove Magic is only an "innate" spell now, however there are multiple different spells, all called Dispel Magic, but some appear to be Remove Magic with Dispel Magic's name. If that makes sense, which spell "code" in EE Keeper should I use for a dispel magic effect, for normal party members and for the Paladin Inquisitor, as well as a remove magic effect (for example, spell code SW2029)? I'm also happy to go into NearInfinity and just rename them if that works best. Just confused I guess all around :-) Any help would be most appreciated! - John
