BALDUR'S GATE 2:
SHADOWS OF AMN
FAQ/WALKTHROUGH 



INTRODUCTION
Welcome to my FAQ and walkthrough for Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. Due to 
the inclusion of class-specific quests, it will be a long time before I 
complete this FAQ - but bear with me. For this preliminary guide up until 
v.1.0, I will be playing as a cavalier. Further versions will include all the 
extra quests I missed, as well as information on the different strongholds 
other classes can use.

From now on, each version I'll outline the stronghold quest for each class. 
With Paladin and Fighter down (Thief is supposed to be, but it was 
suspiciously short…), more are coming. This version: Clerics. Next version: 
Bards, and (who knows?) possibly Rangers.

This walkthrough is coming to an end, and I'm going to write more walkthroughs 
- little ones for Discworld Noir and Planetarion are on the cards as nobody's 
done them yet, but there'll be another big one very soon - and I want you to

APPENDICES

-------------------------------------------------------------
1.a. Dungeon under Waukeen's Promenade
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Goblins, lesser clay golems, mephits (lightning, magma, ice, steam, 
smoke, mineral, radiant, dust, fire, air), duergars, 1 cambion, 1 ogre mage, 1 
otyugh, 1 vampire, 1 doppelganger. 

Treasures: Long sword +1, Bastard sword +1, Helmet of infravision, Bracers of 
defence AC 8, Amulet of metaspell influence, Helm of Balduran, Quaterstaff +1, 
Katana +1 (Yoshimo), Mail of the Dead +2 (Ilyich), Girdle of Bluntness, Ring 
of Protection +1, Sword of Chaos +2.

NPCs: Imoen, Jaheira, Minsc, Yoshimo. 

IMOEN (human; female; neutral good; mage/ thief; str.9 dex.18 con.16 int.17 
wis.11 cha.16)

JAHEIRA (half-elf; female; true neutral; fighter/ druid; str.15 dex.17 con.17 
int.10 wis.14 cha.15)

MINSC (human; male; chaotic good; ranger; str.18/98 dex.16 con.16 int.8 wis.6 
cha.9)

YOSHIMO (human; male; true neutral; bounty hunter; str.17 dex.18 con.16 int.13 
wis.10 cha.14)


After the opening cut-scenes, Imoen will come up to you and free you. Be nice 
to her and she'll join you (a very useful thief/mage).

Head to the north-west room as she advises. Equip yourself with weapons and 
armour and take the key. You can now open Jaheira's cell (3000 xps) and let 
her join. Now talk to Minsc - if you're clever, he'll break free (dialogue 
options 1,2,1,2,1; 3000 xps), and join you.

Once equipped, head SW into a room full of lightning mephits (they hurl 
electricity). Kill them and turn off the machine at the switch to stop more 
arriving (1000 xps).

Now carry on into a room with crystals. Talk to Aataqh and answer his riddle 
(say you'd press the button). He'll summon an Ogre Mage. Kill it and he'll 
congratulate you then disappear.

Head W still. Enter the room with the sewage golem. Talk to it. Search the 
room for goodies, inc. long sword +1.

In the panelled corridors, enter the first room on the right, and talk to 
Rielev. Agree to release him (4000 xps) for some energy cells which you CAN 
use on the bodies in the room W of the sewage golem for some weird dialogue. 
At least be sure to search the room thoroughly (quaterstaff +1).

Wade through into the library area. Head NW and kill the duergars. Collect the 
acorns from the dead body of their leader, Ilyich. 

Taking the NE corridor (trapped!) will bring you to a room containing a 
bizarre machine and beside it a cambion with a force-field around it. All 
weapons are useless until you activate the machine twice - doing this will 
drop the force-field and leave you free to kill your enemy.

Get the activation stone from Rielev's table and give it to the sewage golem 
(3000 xps). Follow it and enter the door it opens (or any of the others). 
Fight, search, enter door (simple).

Now head up the passage to the master's room, complete with traps. Search it, 
get the Air Elemental Statue. Head back to the corridor between the Cambion 
and the Duergars. The statue opens the locked portal. Inside, head N then W, 
fighting the mephits. Rub the flask and a genie will pop out and ask for the 
real flask in return for a weapon of yours. Head SE from the Master's room 
through the forested area. Accept the dryads' quest to deliver the acorns to 
the Fairy Queen (9500 xps). Also get the flask off them. Head back to the 
genie and give him the flask (15000 xps). He'll give you the Sword of Chaos 
+2, Sarevok's sword.

S of here is the mistresses' room, very like the master's. Search for the key 
and other treasures. When you leave back to the master's room, two lesser clay 
golems may attack you (I believe it is necessary to look in their room first, 
it is found near Rielev's body). Now head NW to the teleportation portal and 
enter. 

On the second level, allow Yoshimo to join your party (he's very worthwhile). 
Search the crates and head NE into a room. As told by Yoshimo, kill the four 
elemental portals to stop the mephits coming through (5000 xps each). You'll 
now be treated to some dialogue as Jaheira finds Khalid's desecrated body. 
Head through the Westernmost of the two doors. A battle between a clone and an 
assassin will take place, with the clone winning then attacking you. Kill her 
for xps. Through the Emost door, go across the bridge (beware deadly steam 
trap!) and kill the duergars.

With the keys, "activate" each of the pillars along the western edge to get 
the wands. All the wands have one charge left. Loot the statue. Through the W 
door you'll fight a vampire and shadow thieves - not too tough and probably 
worth it.

In the NE there are two corridors. The N one leads through a goblin-guarded 
forge to a room containing four duergars, minor treasures and the Girdle of 
Bluntness.

The lower one leads into a room with a division. On the other side of the 
division is Frennedan who asks for rescue. Check the chests for minor 
treasures and the key. Release him and he'll follow you.

Go down the SE corridor from the wand room. You'll come into an area where 
three Shadow Thieves challenge you. Kill them. At this point, Frennedan turns 
into a greater doppelganger, so kill him (3000 xps).

Follow the passage down and over the bridge. Simply continue along and leave 
the Irenicus' dungeon.


-------------------------------------------------------------
1.b. Waukeen's Promenade
-------------------------------------------------------------

In the open, you'll fight Irenicus (cut-scene, don't worry) and some Cowled 
Wizards will come and arrest Irenicus and Imoen for illegal use of magic 
(34500 xps/head). Soon you'll have to get her back. First though, you have 
this area to explore.

Monsters: Illusionary Werewolves, Shadows.

Treasures: Girdle of Piercing, Ring of Human Influence, War Hammer +1, CURSED 
sword of berserking +3, Cloak of non-detection.

NPCs: Aerie.

AERIE (elf; female; lawful good; cleric/mage; str.10 dex.17 con.9 int.16 
wis.16 cha.14)


The only major thing here is the circus tent. Talk to the guard outside and 
say you'll try to end the evil inside. Inside, answer the genie on the 
bridge's riddle as 3 (19500 xps). Enter the tent. Talk to Aerie and agree to 
help her free herself.

Head W and talk to the spider. Be nice. Now go over and kill the peasants. One 
of them has the sword that will free Aerie. Give it to Aerie (18500 xps) and 
let her join.

Enter the door guarded by the pleasure slave. Inside, kill all the monsters 
and enter the door at the top of the staircase (the genie will reappear and 
give some information).

Inside this circular room, Kalah will try to kill you, but first he tries to 
kill Quayle while some monsters kill you. Use part members to disrupt Kalah's 
spellcasting, and deal with the monsters. KEEP QUAYLE ALIVE. Kill Kalah (2000 
xps).

Everything will be back to normal, and Aerie will stay with the group. Take 
Kalah's treasure and leave. Outside, talk to the guard again for reputation 
+1.

Otherwise, the only obvious thing to do here is shop (the Adventurer's Mart 
has a great selection, which I will cover soon). There are some distractions 
though:

On the top floor of the Den of Seven Vales, there is a group of adventurers. 
Be nasty to them and they'll attack you. A tough battle, but ultimately 
rewarding. Search the bodies and chests for some of the magic items from BG1.

Once you get Aerie's message (if she's with you), go into the Circus tent and 
talk to Quayle. He'll ask you to go and talk to a friend under the playhouse 
in the city gate section, see below.

Near the NW entrance is a man in blue by the fountain. If he sees Viconia, he 
will yell out that she is a Drow and all the citizens of the Promenade will be 
your enemies - not the best way to get along. Either use another exit or make 
Viconia invisible/blind him.

-------------------------------------------------------------
2.a. The slums
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Hobgoblins (Archers, Warriors, Shaman, Captain, Elites), Mustard and 
ochre jellies, 1 otyugh, Myconids, 1 Myconid king, Kobolds (Commandos, Shaman, 
Captain), Carrion Crawlers, Yuan-ti, Slaver Guards, Trolls.

Treasure: D'Arnisse signet ring (Nalia), Battle axe +1 (Korgan), Delryn Family 
shield +1 (Anomen), Shaman's Staff, Gloves of Pickpocketing, Glasses of 
Identification, Tuigan Short Bow +1, Studded Leather Armour +2, Bastard Sword 
+1, +3 vs. Shapeshifters, Lilracor +3.

NPCs: Nalia, Korgan, Anomen.

NALIA (human; female; chaotic good; mage/thief; str.14 dex.18 con.16 int.17 
wis.9 cha.13)

KORGAN (dwarf; male; chaotic evil; berserker; str.18/77 dex.15 con.19 int.12 
wis.9 cha.7)

ANOMEN (human; male; lawful neutral; fighter/cleric; str.18/52 dex.10 con.16 
int.10 wis.12 cha.13)


On your way you may get ambushed by Suna Seni, Eldarin and some slavers. Kill 
'em.

Talk to Gaelan Bayle and agree to everything. Now chapter two begins. Note 
that upstairs is a merchant with lots of magical ammo and the glasses of 
identification.

I'll cover the copper coronet in detail, now. There's a lot to do here.

First, talk to Nalia, and accept her quest. You can let her join or not - see 
D'Arnisse Hold section for more on her quest.

Talk to Amalas and he'll challenge you to a fight in the pit. Defeat him (9500 
xps). You can also talk to Surly and bet 10 gp on a dog fight. You get 20 back 
if you win. Woohoo…

Korgan has a quest to get a grimoire from a tomb in the graveyard and give it 
to a sage he knows. He wants to join up and get it done. Accept, if you like.

Talk to Lord Jierdan. He'll ask for help on the Windspear Hills, agree - its 
for the cash.

Talk to Garrol, and he'll refer you to Lehtinan, ask about 'entertainment' and 
'other entertainment' and he'll let you through the locked door at the top of 
the stairs.

Search the rooms for mostly minor treasures and the gloves of pickpocketing. 
Head SE and on and enter the second secret door, then go through the door 
here. You're in some sewers. Kill the Hobgoblins, then head in to a circular 
room SW, kill all and search the grate in the middle of the room for a hand.

The hand is one of four keys to a sword. To get this quest, head onwards, SW 
and on, over the TRAPPED bridge, then NE, into a room with four pipes. A voice 
will talk to you, and then you should look at the four clues.

Quallo, as the voice mentioned, is found SW of here (beware a very nasty 
cloudkill trap). Talk and he'll tell you about all the keys.

The hand is the first, place it in the third pipe. Second is a Ring, carried 
by two skeletons just beyond the hobgoblins.  Thirdly, kill Quallo's Carrion 
Crawler and take its blood, this is the third key. Lastly, is the Shaman's 
Staff, carried by a Kobold Shaman E of the bridge. The sword is the talking 
Lilracor +3, handy but sometimes annoying.

When Brus has met you again, come back. Travel to Gaelan's house. On the way, 
Bregg and Cohrvale stop you. Kill 'em.

At Gaelan's house, he'll lower the price to 15000 gps. You may well be able to 
afford this now. Accept or decline as you will.

Tanova and two other vampires attack a bloke at the northern district exit. 
Fight or flee as you desire.

In the Copper Coronet back rooms, you can go right through to the back where a 
man called Hendak begs you to free him and the other gladiators.

Head S then E to find the beastmaster and his animals - kill them all and grab 
the key (the beastmaster also carries the Tuigan Short Bow +1).

Give the key to Hendak and wade your way through the Copper Coronet guards 
(7500 xps). If you're present when Hendak kills Lehtinan, you get 48750 xps 
and a request to infiltrate the slaver stockade (Lehtinan carries many gems 
and spells).

In the Slaver Stockade, there are LOTS of enemies, and lots of traps, and lots 
of minor treasures.

Go through, killing as you go. When you reach the two rooms containing 
children, unlock them for 2500 xps each. Go onwards, kill the Slaver Captain 
and take the key. Now enter the next room, kill the two trolls and free the 
girl (3500 xps). If you pay 100 gps, you get reputation +1.

Now tell Hendak for reputation +1, quest xps, 3900 gps, Bastard sword +1, +3 
vs. Shapeshifters.

-------------------------------------------------------------
2.b. City Gate
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: 1 Lich.

Treasure: Daystar, Rod of Terror, Ring of Invisibility, Wand of Fire, Wand of 
Cloudkill, Wand of Lightning.

NPCs: none.


A very small area, the only interesting area is the Crooked Crane tavern. 
However, at the start you'll witness ANOTHER vampire vs. Shadow Thieves 
battle. Then talk to Flydian and readily accept his quest (10000 gps will get 
you nearly there).

In the Crane, everybody is talking about Aulava and Tiiro. You can talk to 
them upstairs, if you so desire.

I don't recommend trying this now, but later, enter the secret door in the 
tavern. It leads to a tomb guarded by a VERY powerful Lich. 

The tomb is empty, but the chest behind is not.

-------------------------------------------------------------
2.c. The docks
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Mephits (Magma, Fire, Ice), Stone Golems, Vampires, Thugs, Muggers, 
Pirates.

Treasure: Helmet of Charm Protection, Staff spear +2, Spear +1, Bracers of 
defence AC 6 (x2), Bracer of defence AC 7, Quaterstaff +2, Short sword +2, 
Katana +1, Two-handed sword +1, Cloak of protection +1, Ring of Wizardry, 
Boots of Stealth, Shadow Armour.

NPCs: Edwin Odesserion.

EDWIN (human; male; lawful evil; conjurer; str.10 dex.10 con.16 int.18 wis.10 
cha.10)


YOU CAN PROBABLY GET THEM ANYWHERE IN ATHKATLA, BUT THERE WERE TWO MESSAGES 
DELIVERED: FIRSTLY, TO AERIE TO SEE QUAYLE (SEE WAUKEEN'S PROMENADE SECTION), 
AND FOR JAHEIRA TO GO STRAIGHT AWAY. Next time you rest after Jaheira leaves, 
she'll come back, and tell you to go to the Harper HQ. Inside are five people 
who try to kill you. Get there first.

If you have Yoshimo with you, he'll tell you that you need to see Renal 
Bloodscalp. On the way to the Shadow Thieves' Guild, you'll find a Mad Cleric 
who tells you to convert to Cyric. Say no then kill him (750 xps).

Inside, go forward then up and follow round. Accept Renal's offer to spy on 
Mae'Var. Leave and go to Mae'Var's guildhouse. Inside, show Gorch the 
documents given to you, then go through and down. 

Accept Mae'Var's task. Go over to the TEMPLE area (see temple area section for 
details of what to do here).

Having got the amulet or statuette, give it to Mae'Var (29500 xps), he'll tell 
you to visit his assistant, Edwin (yes, THE Edwin from BG1).

Speak to Edwin and he'll give you a hard errand. Accept it, and search the 
chests and rooms for treasures.

Go to Rayic's house and enter kill the mephits, then SAVE - it gets TOUGH. 
Upstairs are two stone golems. Kill them, then go upstairs and kill Rayic. 
Search his body.

Tell Edwin, he'll give you another task: collect some documents from Marcus in 
the Sea's Bounty Tavern. 

If you don't have Jaheira, enter and get the documents off of Marcus for 200 
gold. Give them to Edwin (10000 xps). Go to Mae'Var, accept. Go to Embarl and 
kill him. Bring back the dagger (28750 xps).

Go to Edwin again, he knows the truth, agree for the key. Enter Mae'Var's 
chamber and open the locked chest. Take the letter to Renal (48250 xps). He'll 
tell you to kill Mae'Var.

Everyone in his guild will know about it, so wade in and kill everybody. With 
Mae'Var dead, head back to Renal for your reward: ???? xps and 10500 gps.

***THIEF STRONGHOLD QUEST***

When the Renal/Mae'Var quest is resolved, Renal gives you control over his old 
guild. Enter the guildhouse and talk to the two men in the room where the 
steps to the basement are.

They will tell you about all your rogues, what they do, and give you the 
option of altering how they work, making things risky or less risky for them.

There are also several events that occur. 
EVENT 1: Ama, Shadowmistress of the East, requires you to make a rendezvous 
and assassination at Waukeen's Promenade. Go there at dark and Ama will spring 
a trap of half a dozen muggers, herself and the bloke you thought you would 
assassinate. Kill them all.

EVENT 2: One of the young thieves under Kretor is skimming off the top, 
reducing returns. To deal with this, cut all their wages. In five days time 
the matter will be resolved.

The amount Joster, Renal's quarter-master, demands, changes. It goes: 500, 
500, 1000, 1000, 350.

There's got to be more to do on this stronghold, but I haven't come across it 
yet.

Back in the Sea's Bounty Tavern, there is a secret door. Inside is a bunch of 
pirates, search the water after killing them for cash.

If you have the body of Renfeld (you'll get this if you try to travel to the 
D'Arnise Hold) , deliver it to the estate in the SW. Give it to Rylock outside 
for 14550 xps and 125 gps. 

As you leave, another old "friend", Xzar, will come up to you and give you a 
quest (accept it).

Go back to Rylock and ask to enter. He'll make you perform a service first. Do 
this by going to Prebek's house and killing everyone inside (loot for 
treasure).

Report back to Rylock (14500 xps), he'll let you enter. Inside, search the 
rooms especially the end room for an amulet. Put this on your best thief and 
send him upstairs. Doing this will stop the spectral harpers attacking. 
Search, but head into the first door you see. Enter the cage and take the 
bird.

Deliver this to Xzar, who thinks it is Montaron, polymorphs it: it is Lucette 
who kills Xzar (don't know how many xps, but there are some). Loot his corpse.

Near the first exit, a bloke will come up to you then get attacked by 
vampires. You can flee or fight as you wish, but three vampires is a tough 
prospect.

The Dwarf Cromwell will forge items out of component parts and monster hides. 
Each work will lose you one day of possible adventuring and costs you 5000 
gps.

He makes: 
   Red Dragon Scales – Red Dragon Scale 
   Ankheg Hide - Ankheg Plate Mail
   Shadow Dragon Scales - Shadow Dragon Leather
   3 parts of the equalizer - Long Sword: Equalizer
   3 parts of the wave - Halberd +4: Wave
   2 parts of the Gesen - Gesen Short Bow
   4 parts of the Crom Faeyr - Crom Faeyr

Jaheira is a bit of a liability here - in the Sea's Bounty Tavern is a guy 
called Baron Ployer who gets a curse on Jaheira - you must solve this fast or 
she dies.

First, go to the Government District. When you leave the Council of Six 
building, a mage called Terrence will be waiting. Pay 1000 gps and his gang 
won't attack you with Ployer.

Now go to the Derelict House in the Slums (marked on map). Inside, threaten to 
kill Ployer if he doesn't help you and when his friends don't turn up, he'll 
give you Jaheira's hair (21250 xps), then get killed by her (21250 xps more). 
Now rest a full day in the Copper Coronet and she'll be fine. No problem.

-------------------------------------------------------------
2.d. Temple
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Rakshasa, Kobolds, Kobold Commandos, Kobold Captain, Kobold Shamen, 
Kobold Witch Doctor, Sea troll, Gibberlings, Mutated gibberlings, Mephits 
(Ice, Dust, Magma, Fire, Lightning), goblins, Salamanders, Ice salamanders, 
Ghasts, Zombies, Mummies, Gauth, Ettercaps, Sword Spiders, Vampiric Mists, 
Shadows.

Treasure: Hallowed Redeemer (Keldon), Firecam Full-plate armour (Keldon), 
Cloak of the Sewers, Rod of Resurrection, Necklace of Form Stability, Harp of 
Discord, Entropy (Haer'Dalis), Chaos (Haer'Dalis), Full plate +1, Wyvern's 
Tail +2, Hangard's Axe +2, Pride of the Legion +2, Large Shield +2, Helm of 
Glory, Mace +1: Ardulia's Fall, Dragon's Bane +3, +6 vs Dragons, Amulet of 
Magic Resistance 5%, War Hammer +2, +1 electric damage, Saving Grace +3, Skin 
of the Ghoul.

NPCs: Keldon Firecam, Haer'Dalis.
 
KELDON (human; male; lawful good; inquisitor; str.17 dex.9 con.17 int.12 
wis.16 cha.18)

HAER'DALIS (tiefling; male; chaotic neutral; blade; str.17 dex.17 con.9 int.15 
wis.13 cha.16)


You will be waylaid by Orogs on the way - a tough fight. Here, a man will 
ramble on about the "Unseen Eye" cult. After his sermon, a priest of Helm 
will escort you to his temple. Here, talk to both High Watcher Oisig and 
Telwyn for quests (do them after finishing with the Shadow Thieves). The 
Unseeing Eye Cult is found in the tunnels off the NW of the map. Go down the 
sidepath and wade through until you reach the Gas Chamber.

When you reach the centre the door shuts and fills the room with deadly gas. 
Turn the wheel to stop the gas, then defend yourself against Vampiric Mists.

Ask Gaal to let you join the Cult, but tell him you'd rather keep your eyes. 
Accept his quest. Go back to the main tunnel then down to the door. Beware 
traps - in the room is Sassar who has seen the evil in the Unseeing Eye 
Beholder. Accept. Note that for the Kangaxx quest, the sarcophagus is of the 
Shade Lich!

Carry on down, beware further traps. In the next area, go forward then right. 
Here are some Yuan-ti. Go up to the building via the trapped stairs and answer 
the questions: Life; Time; The Current One (42250 xps).

Across the bridge is a tough fight, but afterwards search the nook for the 
brilliant Warhammer +2, +1 electrical (this was my close combat weapon of 
choice, after Drizzt's scimitars, in the original game).

In the next room ignore the people, then enter the Temple. In here is the 
Emphatic Manifestation. The only way to kill it is with Cure Light Wounds, 
oddly enough. You get 25,750 xps for finding the Avatar (it appears now). 
Accept its quest.

Return to Sassar with the Avatar's rod half. Talk to Tad in the cult (not 
Gaal!!!). The password is "The Eye is Blind". Keep going down the pit (lots 
of undead).

Search for the Ghoul's Skin and the Gauntlets of Dexterity. Wade through to 
the Lair. 

In each eye shoot of the lair, a Gauth guards treasure. Search all for cash, 
spells, Dragon's Bane +3, +6 vs. Dragons, and the other rod part. Fix the two 
together and put it as a quick item for 26,250 xps.

Then use the rod to disable the Unseeing Eye's protections and kill him, he 
carries the Amulet of 5% magic resistance.

Go left, give the Avatar the rod on the way, then enter the temple and 
convince everyone that if they believe in their god, he will appear. He won't, 
they'll vanish. Get your reward (Saving Grace +3 shield, 47,250 xps).

Go back to the cult, Gaal's blokes will attack you. Kill them (search for 
treasures). Now return to the Temple you got the quest from for 45,750 
xps/head, Mace +1: Ardulia's Fall, 7000 gold and reputation +1.

***CLERIC STRONGHOLD QUEST***

Once you have completed the Unseeing Eye Quest, you are made an acolyte of 
your Temple. There is another acolyte who will tell you what to do.

There are a few visitors, you must advise them as an acolyte of your church. 
You will be graded by the other acolyte a day after each visitor arrives. Note 
you can be chucked out if you act against your church's wishes. Simply said, 
if you're Lathander take the good option, Helm the neutral, Talos the evil.

VISITOR 1: Glinden's wife is unfaithful and wants advice.
   Lathander - Tell him to forgive her (20000 xps).
   Helm - Tell him to remand her vows (20000 xps).
   Talos - Tell him to murder her and her lover, then turn him in when the 
guard arrives (200 gps and 20000 xps).

VISITOR 2: Ti'Vael has killed a man.
   Lathander - Tell him to pay restitution to the man's family (20000 xps).
   Helm - Tell him to give himself up (20000 xps).
   Talos - Tell him to kill all witnesses, then kill him. Take his head to the 
inspector in the Council of Six (500 gps, 20000 xps).

VISITOR 3: Rania has lost her faith.
   Lathander - Give her time to think (20000 xps).
   Helm - Stress the importance of duty (20000 xps).
   Talos - Kill her and keep her head.

VISITOR 4: Cortirso got put down when you got promoted, he wants a duel.
   Lathander - Refuse the duel (20000 xps).
   Helm - Accept and win (20000 xps).
   Talos - Take Rania's head to the Inspector and frame Cortirso for the 
murder (30000 xps).

You are now either given the task of killing the chief of the opposing church 
(do so for 35000 xps and 1000/2000 gps), or for Helm supporters, stop the 
Talosian attack, then talk Lara out of a vengeance attack (same reward).

For thieves: Go now to the Talos temple. There are three rooms here with some 
handy minor treasures to loot. The amulet you were sent for is in the W room, 
collect it and leave (20000 xps). Head now back to the docks. If you were to 
find the statuette, go to the Lathander temple and in the E you will find a 
priest. Wait for a bit and he'll leave, you can now loot for the statue and 
cash.

Once finished with all that, enter the sewers at the entrance by the Prophet. 
Inside, head straight on to a fight with Kobolds and a deadly Rakshasa (which 
carries the Cloak of the Sewers).

Continue on to a fight with a sea troll (remember to use fire or acid on it 
when it drops!). At the last junction, head N, kill the gibberlings and 
continue. Let Keldon join - he's very good with cool magical items. Head NE, 
and kill the goblins. Here there is a secret door, go through, right and up.

In this room (from BG1's Durlag's tower), kill the mephits then go south. Go 
round and enter Mekrath's room, threaten him and kill him (warning: hard 
wizard!). Search the room for a Cloudkill Wand and the Rod of Resurrection.

Upon leaving you will be approached by Haer'Dalis, who can join. He'll ask you 
to get a gem and return it to its owner at the Five Flagons. This gem is a 
Portal Gem on this level (trapped shrine).

Head NE from the secret door to a fight with six tough opponents. Try it - 
it's hard but rewarding.

Talk to Roger the Fence south of the central area. If you're persuasive he'll 
give you 250 gps. You can buy/sell too.

Outside Valen will tell you you are being spied upon and you should meet with 
her mistress in the graveyard. Directly after, Brus tells you to visit Gaelan 
Bayle again - they seemed to be linked… 

There is an exit NW of where you got Keldon to the sewers beneath the Bridge, 
but I'd leave this for later, as it's not at all easy.

Telwyn in the Helm Temple wants you to get the services of Sir Sales. To do 
so, first go to Sales in the Jystevv Estate (Government District), then to the 
Ore Merchant at Waukeen's Promenade. Ask for real stuff, for 1000 gps she'll 
tell you to look for Unger in the Copper Coronet. He'll tell you Neb (yes, THE 
Neb, the evil child murderer who lets you out of prison in BG1) stole his 
ilithium and he is in the Bridge area.

Go to the derelict house here, attack Neb. He'll go invisible and cower in a 
corner while four Child Spirits attack you. Now kill him with magic (this is 
one sick man). Take the ilithium and give it to Sales (21750 xps) and tell 
Telwyn (1000 gps, 20000 xps and Helm of Glory).

He now gives you a second task. Go to Dawnbringer Sain inside the Lathander 
Temple and accept his task. Go to the N Slums exit by night and use some spell 
(Dispel Illusion, Detect Invisibility, Invisibility Purge, True Sight etc.) to 
reveal Travin.

Pay him 400 gps for information. Enter Borinall's locked house, and either (if 
you are very evil or a priest of Talos) recite the vow OR (if you're anything 
else) refuse and kill him and his muggers. Take the Dawn Ring and also search 
for a Warhammer +1 and gold.

Take the Dawn Ring to Sain and he'll give you 16250 xps and 1000 gps.

At some point after chapter 5 a Githyanki will appear and demand the silver 
blade of you. Fight or give as you desire.

***PALADIN STRONGHOLD QUEST***

When you've been given a recommendation by Garren Windspear (see Windspear 
Hills), you can enter the High Hall of the Radiant Heart.

Inside, tell Squire Cathras you want to visit the Prelate. Accept his offer, 
then talk to Sir William Reirrac. Accept his first task, head over to the Umar 
Hills directly.

Here, a knight of the Most Noble Order of the Radiant Heart takes you to the 
fight: two ettins, two ogre magi, four orcs and a spotted lion. Kill them all, 
keep the knights all alive.

After the fight, a Squire will congratulate you. Head back to the High Hall 
and accept your next task, taking you to the Umar Hills again (10000 xps).

Talk to the Baron in the Inn, then go outside and talk to Brunson, he'll 
leave.

Go back to the Order HQ and you get another quest (1000 xps). Go to the 
appointed building at the docks. Talk, don't let her out. Fight the assassins 
upstairs and down. When her guardian arrives, let him take her.

Return to the Order. You're given a final task and your reward (magical armour 
and 10000 xps). This task is to kill the Red Dragon under the Windspear Hills, 
this is Fikraag. He is exactly where you last left him. This time though, kill 
him. He carries the Holy Avenger: Carsomyr +5, Cloak of the Shield and some 
Red Dragon Scales.

Return to the Order for 35000 xps. You've completed your stronghold quest.

JAN (gnome; male; thief/illusionist; str.9 dex.17 con.15 int.16 wis.14 cha.10)


If Keldon is with you, he'll ask to visit his family.

Just outside the prison Viconia is about to be burnt at the stake. Untie her 
and you'll have to fight three fanatics, then she can join.

Visit Keldon's estate and his wife will admit to seeing another man. Go to the 
Mithrest Inn at the Promenade. Talk to Sir William and suggest a peaceful 
return to Keldon's home. Here, talk to his wife, and say Keldon must stay with 
you, at least for now (15500 xps).

Head through the park and talk to Delon, accept. Carry on to the Council of 
Six building. Agree to Madeen and Tolgerias. 

Anomen will eventually demand he visit his father when he finds out his sister 
is dead. Take him to his home. In the dialogue, convince him to take the path 
of the magistrate (10500 xps), he'll be exiled from his family.

Talk to the magistrate in the Council of Six building for 7500 xps, just 
convince Anomen to let things be.

Jan is here and tries to sell you his inventions. Trax will come and try to 
arrest him. Tell Trax you were just discussing the weather for 8500 xps and 
the chance to let Jan join up (11500 xps).

If you have Valygar's body, go to Tolgerias, threaten him for a promise of 
death or give it to him for 11250 xps, 500 gps, -1 reputation and the Ring of 
the Ram.

Talk to Corneil after doing this and for 5000 gps he'll let you cast spells in 
Athkatla legally - very useful, and worth every penny.

If Haer'Dalis is with you, go to the playhouse beneath the Five Flagons. Here 
he will give Raelis Shai her portal gem and she will open a portal and let 
stuff through, kill them.

When they go through, follow. In here, basically go right round killing 
everything (avoid the disgusting bulbous things, they are portals into a room 
of spell-casting and invisible Githyanki).

When you get the Orb of Mastery off of the Demon, use it on the brazier near 
the beginning to destroy it. This makes the fight against the warden much 
easier. 

Now when you fight the warden, it doesn't have its thralls to help it. Kill 
the Hulks and it (10000 xps for the warden).

W of here is a jail, it contains Haer'Dalis and the other bards, beware, there 
is a Flesh to Stone trap! When you get through, Haer'Dalis can rejoin. 
Everyone now leaves.

In a house S of Delosar's Inn, there is a basement containing an Elemental 
Lich.

In Delosar's Inn itself there is a group of tough mercenaries, kill them for 
good experience, cash and a magical item.

In a house in the NW there are several traps, minor treasures and the Horn of 
Valhalla, a handy item in a tight combat.

In the E by the docks there is a house containing four people who fight you 
and a bunch of brigands.

Lieutenant Aegsfield in the N tells you about some recent murders you can 
investigate. Go to the Merchant Square, buy Rampah's hide and get Rose's 
information on berries.

Now talk to Bel, he'll give you samples of things that small like guril 
berries and identify Rampah's hide. Rose will tell you that it was the tannin 
she smelt.

Go to the tanner and attack him, he'll admit to the crime and flee (23250 
xps). 

On the second floor down, there are several traps as well as damning evidence 
(be sure to get the letter) and minor treasures.

One more floor down and you're attacked by two ghasts and rune assassins. Kill 
them and search for the Gesen Shaft.

By the edge on the far W you find Am-Si, Tirdir's kidnapper. Talk to him, tell 
him you know and follow him into the house. He'll be killed. Now pursue the 
two others outside and kill them.

Back inside on the top floor, either free Lady Elgea (16750 xps) or get cash 
by arranging to meet for the ransom outside the Copper Coronet.

-------------------------------------------------------------
2.g. Graveyard District
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Mummies, Skeleton Warriors, 1 Crypt King.

Treasure: Two-handed sword +1, Nether Scroll, Namarra +2, Nether Scroll.

NPCs: none.


The main purpose of this area is as a staging ground for Chapter 3. 

There is a tomb to the E of the main entrance to the Lower Crypts containing a 
dangerous Crypt King who attacks. Kill him and search the tomb.

There are several other tombs exactly like this, with a few undead monsters 
and various treasures.

There are two quests: Firstly, you will see two gnomes mourning at Wellyn's 
grave. Eventually Wellyn appears as a spirit and asks for his teddy, 
explaining a man in the Copper Coronet's back rooms stole it.

Also, again E of the entrance to lower crypts, Tirdir has been buried alive 
(you must "use" the grave). He'll give you a piece of red fabric that points 
to his kidnapper. He is found in the Bridge District (above), as told by 
Sethle to the E.

Both Edwin and Korgan want texts found in the Southern Dungeons of the Lower 
Crypts, found S of the big spider nest thing. For more information on the 
lower crypts, look in section 3.a.

When you reach the branch in the southern dungeons, head E first. Here, if you 
have Edwin, you will meet Neveziah, a not especially powerful lich. Talk 
twice, BE NICE. On the second time, Edwin will initiate a combat. Just keep at 
him to disrupt spellcasting for an easy win.

If you win you get the Nether Scroll. Let Edwin keep it as his own if you want 
to progress further with the spell (11750 xps).

Korgan finds the tomb he intended to rob already looted (11250 xps) and begs 
you to give chase by going to Pimlico's house - you'll find it empty (8750 
xps) except for dead.

Go now to the Copper Coronet's roof. Kill Shagbag and his party, and you can 
recover the Book of Kaza (purely for gold - 5000 xps).

Edwin's Nether Scroll - after a few days he translates a bit, and a day later, 
regardless of warning, he casts a transformation spell intended to turn him 
into a kind of living lich, but fails and turns into a touchy woman (hilarious 
?).

Go to Gaelan Bayle and accept his offer of 15000 gps (???? xps). Go to the 
Shadow Thieves' and head E then down the passage. Carry on, head NE from this 
room.

Accept Aran Linvail's first quest. Head down to the shipyard docks. Talk to 
Mook. Lassal will appear and kill Mook, fight him, he'll eventually run away.

Head back to Aran and accept again. Go to the Bridge and enter the five 
flagons. Upstairs, enter the far NE room of the four, kill the traitors. Then 
the contact will appear, his name is Gracen. Kill him (1400 xps).

Again accept Aran's quest. Head to the graveyard district, enter the tomb S of 
where you meet Uncle Lester and his relative.

Inside, follow on, beware of traps. Head N through the spiders' lair, then 
meet Haz and his golem. Kill the warders then purge the inner sanctum through 
the blue doors.
In the NW door, kill and search the blood pool. Head S, kill the clay golem 
and stake the vampires in their coffins (9000 xps each).

Head SE. Kill Tanova - don't enter the next room.

Along the spider area, enter the "cocoon" thing over the "drawbridge". 
Kill those inside.

Enter the Southern Dungeons. Kill all the monsters, beware the painting on the 
floor - it's trapped.

Head S, killing as you go. At the junction, go E. Open the sarcophagus, kill 
the skeleton warrior and take his magical weapon. Further on is a small room 
with treasures.

On the S branch, beware traps and enter room for more minor treasures.

Head back to the Inner Sanctum. Go down the NE stairs. Go along, enter and 
fight the vampires and grimwarders.  Search the NW and NE rooms for treasure. 
Lassal will appear and tell you to meet him upstairs.

Head to the room full of spikes, blood and very deadly traps. Lassal is on the 
far E side. Kill him.

Now head back to the room where you staked the vampires in their coffins. 
Stake the last one and Bodhi will appear, talk a bit, then attack you - you 
can't kill her, she'll run when wounded sufficiently (18750 xps).

Now go back to Aran and he'll take you to a ship, which will take you all the 
way to Spellhold Island (??? xps).

-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Pirates.

Treasures: Quaterstaff +2, Flail +2, Leather Armour +3, Longbow +2, Light 
Crossbow +1.

NPCs: none.


Leave the ship, you'll be attacked by Del, Parisa and Valen, vampires. Kill 
them.

Head to the tavern (The Vulgar Monkey), and talk to Sanik. He'll get 
assassinated (kill the assassin) before he can help you at all. Great.

Now talk to the innkeeper who'll tell you to find Claire. To do this, go to 
Lady Galvena's Festhall and talk to the appropriate courtesan outside. For 100 
gps you'll be taken to an inner room. Inside, tell her you'll leave then give 
her 100 gps to shut up about it.

Outside, head NW, kill the guards. Enter the room guarded by the first guard 
and take the skeleton key.

Head through the far NW door to the prison. Enter the NE door and kill Vadek 
and Galvena. Be nice to Claire and she'll take you to see her captain by the 
docks (10000 xps).

Take his information (2000 xps).

Go to Ginia, and agree to help her. Go to Chremy and kill him. Now head to 
Calahan and agree to pay (2000 xps). Go back and tell Ginia, she'll be very 
happy (9000 xps).

Now go to the Pirate Lord's home. Tell the door guard and the lord himself 
that Golin sent you. Tell him you need to get into Spellhold and act mad. If 
Yoshimo is in your party, this is very easy (36500 xps each).

Inside, get out and open the locked door S of where you are (talk several 
times to the bloke on the left and you get gems every time).

Attack Wanev and Irenicus appears and takes you in. He'll explain Yoshimo's 
treachery and you'll be put in the same process Imoen went through.

In your dream, enter the Library and talk to Imoen. Go back out, head W and 
tell Bhaal to "catch you if he can". Run back to Imoen and fight Bhaal. If 
you win, you're sent back to Irenicus' lab.

You'll be put in the labyrinth under the asylum.

NPCs: Imoen.


Inside, Bodhi will gloat a bit and give you a "fighting chance". Talk to 
Imoen, she can join again (hurrah!). Head through the SW door, fight, loot the 
statue will give you a clue to how to leave (this is the exit). Head through 
the NW door. In the W door, search, E, fight and search - easy enough. Go 
through N door. The N from here leads to a tough fight. The E door leads to a 
room full of faces. Activating these faces will lead you to the Statue of 
Riddles who will pose a riddle. The answers (in no order) are: darkness; 
stars; candle; coffin; fire; ice; shadows; sponge; breath; fish; a secret; a 
hole. Answer all the riddles for 5000 xps per head.

Carry on through, fight the yuan-ti, carry on again - beware squashing 
mechanism. Enter the room, fight the clay golem and search.

In the next area (use the door from the main square), fight the umber hulks 
(v. hard, obviously).

At the end of the corridor, head NE. Keep going until you find a yellowed 
book. Keep using it to make these enemies (in order) appear: Kobold captain, 
sword spider, umber hulk, mind flayer, beholder). Kill them all, the re-use 
the book for 2 spells, a Ring of Free Action and 8000 xps each.

In the secret door, kill all the enemies. In the room with the kobolds' 
crystal, kill the "avatars" to get a crystal shard, which you need.

Back to the end of the corridor. Head SW. Kill the enemies, there is a lot to 
search for here and in the library just N of your position.

Go onwards, enter and kill Dace Solan, a very powerful vampire. When he 
retreats to his coffin, stake him for the hand you need to escape.

Go back to the statue on the first level, use the hand on it to open the door 
(29500 xps per head). Go through.

Down here, enter the W door. Go along a bit. Enter the S secret door, and turn 
the wheel to open the N one. Enter and kill the trolls, search.

Head on, and when you've killed all the minotaurs, head NE. Search the water, 
then the statues - beware!!!

       W statue: troll painting, disintegrate trap
       N statue: umber hulk painting, cloudkill trap
       E statue: djinni painting, fireball trap

Head right on, you'll soon encounter Bodhi. This bit's fixed. You will turn 
into the Slayer, avatar of Bhaal and attack everything, friend or foe. Bodhi 
will flee, you're the big danger here.

Note: if you have a romance, you will transform again and kill your girl/boy. 

In this room are four globes. If you stand on the mosaic then activate them 
one-by-one, they'll cast spells: slow, heal, haste, lightning bolt.

From this room, head N, wipe this place clean (not easy!!!).

Go back then SW and search. With the two stone horns, use them on the statue 
to open the door - but do this later, first, go right back to the start.

Now go down the E tunnel. Kill the yuan-ti, then enter, one by one, the doors 
corresponding to the paintings you should have.

Behind them are: MIND FLAYER: kill the mind flayer (11000 xps)

TROLL: Kill the Spirit Troll (8000 xps)

DJINNI: kill the djinni (10000 xps)

UMBER HULK: kill the umber hulk (10000 xps). Go on until you reach a junction. 
Go SW. Kill the Stone Golem guard, search. Now head SW again. In here is a 
machine that gives you magical items for mithril tokens, which are scattered 
around. I've found 21 so far. They get you:

       5 tokens: Boots of the North
       10 tokens: Boots of Grounding
       15 tokens: Boots of Speed
       20 tokens: Jester's Chain +4

Head back NE from the first junction. There is a bit of dexterity needed here. 
Inside is a chest guarded by three clay golems that attack when you open the 
chest.

To do this, send one person in hasted. Unlock the chest then open it and 
pause. Take the contents then RUN! Shut the door behind and for some reason 
(presumably so it's actually possible to get the loot) the golems don't come 
through.

Now leave into a room full of commandos, kill 'em all. Back at the stairs an 
apparition appears. Let him test you, it's the way out. For the first test you 
have to kill a big mushroom with spell abilities - not too hard. Now he'll ask 
a question, the answer is splinter.

Now you go to a dining hall with four apparitions. Search the table then talk 
to any one and you'll get four questions, the answers are: nothing, a river, 
fear, memory. You'll now be taken on to a platform. The apparition will free 
you, go down the invisible steps. Through here your treacherous captain will 
appear again.

Go upstairs and kill Lonik the Sane. You'll be taken to a room full of all the 
captives. Be nice and they'll join you as you attack Irenicus himself… Beware, 
they can be a liability, especially Wanev!

Eventually Irenicus will run away and Yoshimo will arrive with a bunch of 
murderers and you'll be involved in a HUGE battle.

Complete it (be sure to get the heart off Yoshimo's body) and rest. You'll 
have a dream in which you'll be granted the ability to shapeshift into the 
Slayer at will.

Go back up, Saemon will appear again and offer you an exit over sea or through 
the Underdark. I'll be pursuing the sea route this time round.

Back outside, head W and along, killing all and make your way to the SW corner 
where you can finally get to Brynnlaw at last!

Back in the town, go to the Tavern and talk to Saemon. Accept, when it's night 
go to Cayia's house. Fight the guards, the horn is on the table.

Take it to Saemon Havarian and you'll board ship. Desharik will appear, kill 
his lackeys and you'll leave.

On your way your ship will be attacked by two different parties, and you're 
captured by the Sahaugin. 

-------------------------------------------------------------
4.c. The Underwater City

Monsters: Rebels, Sahaugin, 1 Ettin, Sword Spiders, Ettercaps, 1 Bone golem.

Treasures: Cloak of Mirroring, Cloak of protection +2, Boots of etherealness, 
Rod of Lordly Power.

You'll be taken to the underwater city by the sahaugin. You're taken to an 
audience with their king, Ixilthetocal.

He'll explain you are to save the city as part of an old prophecy by their 
god. To prove your worth, you're put in an arena to kill an ettin. When dead, 
accept all.

Go to their High Priest and she'll change everything - accept all. 

Go to the Drow SE section, beware traps. Kill as you go. You will come to an 
area where some imps will set you a challenge - accept.

The answer is: Helmet - Piergorian
               Pipe - Elminster
               Scimitar - Drizzt
               Staff - Khelben
               Amulet - Alaustriel

Get the treasures, head N, talk to the Spectator. Kill it (it's a Beholder, of 
course it's hard). The chest contains the tooth you need.

Now head to the NE corner, go down the steps and through the door, fighting as 
you go onwards. Inside the door, accept an offer of an audience (if you kept 
the orb the Priestess gave you).

Accept all his offers and head back to the throne area. Give the false heart 
to the King then you're discovered, so kill them all (the rebels will arrive 
to help you).

At the end, the Prince of the Rebels will give you all the treasures and a way 
down to the Underdark you tried to avoid in the first place (60500 xps/head).

mages!),  Long Sword +3, Light Crossbow +3, Flail +3, Amulet of Spell Warding.

From your starting position after the descent (20000 xps/head), head E. Talk 
Duergars, buy a Freedom scroll. Beware the elemental respawn points, they keep 
coming every time you kill one.

Head N. Fight Drow. You'll come to a crystal. By using the panels "lost 
souls" will come out and attack you (except one, who tells you to visit his 
village).

Now cast the Freedom spell. Between the crystal and the duergars a mage named 
Vithal appears and gives you a quest - accept. 

Head back to the crystal and head along E, killing the bridge guards.

Go back to the crystal now and head W, kill all the myconids, just further W 
are three Mind Flayers that come round and attack.

From here, head N to the Dark Gnome village, accept peaceful entry, go around 
and talk to their chief, accept. The cave is in the village, a little E. Use 
the stone and kill the Balor (VERY, VERY, VERY HARD).

Now return to the king for a Light Gem and Skullcrusher +3.

In the next house along, talk to the Innkeeper and buy Vithal's book off him 
for 300 gps.

The other Gnome is father of the gnome that you freed from the mage crystal 
prison, the one that walked off. Talk to him for 10000 xps and the Bracers of 
Defence AC 4.

Now go to the Earth portal and give Vithal his book. He'll summon a Greater 
Earth Elemental, kill it (keep Vithal alive!!) and he'll disappear and return.

You'll repeat this three times, once for each portal. At the end he'll reward 
you, press for more ONCE - more than once and he'll attack and win very 
easily. Be happy with this good reward.

With the Light Gem go now to the Dark Cave near the entrance to Ust Natha. 
Inside, accept the Silver Dragon's quest. As Drow, enter Ust Natha.

When you are back out again to hunt the illithid, a party of adventurers try 
to kill you, it's a tough fight.

From here, go to the extreme SE, talk and kill those that appear. Head back to 
the Drow City at your leisure (20000 xps).

When you've escaped the city, go to the Dragon, talk for your reward: 78500 
xps/head and Necradon's Crossbow +3. You'll be taken to a gate, fight the 
Drow. Go through, fight again. There are fights in the next room, the next and 
the next. Eventually, you'll reach the exit to the Surface!!! At last!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------
5.b. Ust Natha
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Drow, Mind Flayers, Mustard Jelly, Gray Ooze, Green Slime, Ochre 
Jelly, Beholder.

Treasures: BoneBlade +4, Ring of Spell Turning, Gorgon Plate +4.

NPCs: none.


At the Bazaar, you can buy and sell magical items and mostly scrolls.

Go straight to the Male Fighter's Association. Talk to Solaufein outside, 
accept. Go right back to the exit (if asked which way the "quarry" went in a 
pre-death chase, it was that woman that legged it past yelling, respond as you 
wish).

Now talk to Imrae and accept. You can rest/restock as you wish before. Refer 
back to the Underdark section now.

Back in the city, a Duergar will tell you to talk to his master, go up to the 
tank, talk to Aboleth and accept.

Qilue's house is guarded by Servants, all with up to level 8 spells - beware! 
Kill her, get her brain, take this to Aboleth for your reward, 10000 xps.

Talk to Phaene as agreed. Accept, go to the extreme SE, talk then murder the 
Beholder (20000 additional xps).

Go back to the tavern.

You're given another task, this time to kill patrol of sverfneblin. Go to the 
Myconid patch and kill the gnomes. Take the gnomic leader's helm as proof of 
your feat.

Give this to Phaere and she'll tell you to meet her again. Go to the Female 
Fighter's Association and accept.

There is a Drow Priestess, accept her quest, go to the SE and kill the lot. 
There's no xps for completing that though.

Go to Solaufein and kill him. Tell Phaere. If you are male, at this point, you 
sleep with her (I don't know what happens if you're female!).

Go to the Temple of Lolth, accept the quest. Go to the Beholder cave in the 
Underdark (the southern tunnels on the map), and kill the Beholders, get the 
eye from the Elder.

Go back to the temple (22000 xps). Go now to Phaere in her apartments at the 
Female Fighters' again. Accept.

Enter the Temple, the treasury is in the NE. I suggest you cast (Improved) 
Invisibility first. Replace the Egg in the N bowl-thing, the golems will 
attack, shut the door on them. Kill the Egg Guards.

There are now to ways. Hard and Easy:

Hard:
Take the Egg to Phaere (10000 xps). She'll vanish, an Imp will appear and give 
you instructions. Go to the Temple. In the ritual room, interrupt what Phaere 
is saying, kill the Demon and her (the demon is VERY HARD). Outside, every 
Drow in Ust Natha tries to kill you, you're only chance is to peg it outside 
the city gates.

Easy: Keep the eggs and leave the city. Nearly no xps for that though.

Refer to the above Underdark section again now.

-------------------------------------------------------------
6.a. Exit from the Underdark
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: none.

Treasures: none.

NPCs: none.


A nice short section. When out of the Underdark, you're taken to an audience 
with Elhan, the War Elf leader. NOTE: Before you leave, remove all Drow 
equipment, there is a bug in some versions that means the dust doesn't stop 
re-spawning!

Agree to everything and be careful to tell the truth. If Viconia is with you, 
she'll be put under a geas. He gives you a quest to find an artefact that 
allows the Elves entry to Suldanesselar.  

This is carried by Bodhi, you can ask for stakes and holy water to sort her 
out.

The most interesting bit is that when you leave, Drizzt and his friends meet 
you. If you're nice, Drizzt will agree to meet you at Bodhi's guild and aid 
you. Of course, you can kill him and his friends, and nick all their brilliant 
items, but it's so hard I wouldn't bother. My advice is perhaps kill Drizzt 
when he's alone in the Graveyard District…

-------------------------------------------------------------
6.b. Small Teeth Pass and North Woods
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: 1 Efreeti, 1 Dao, Wolfweres, Ankhegs, Gnolls (Veterans, Elites, 
Slashers, Captains).

Treasures: several +1 items.

NPCs: none.


These two small and boring areas have been put into a single section because 
it's pointless making two tiny sections.

Small Teeth Pass is basically a small monster-thump.

North Woods is a bit different, there are two groups, one of various 
adventurers, one of an efreeti and a dao. Each holds/guards some minor 
treasures.

-------------------------------------------------------------
7.c. Forest of Tethir
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Mist Horrors, Vampiric Mists, Poison Mists, Crimson Deaths, 
Panthers, 1 Greater Wyvern, 1 Baby Wyvern, Kuo-toa, Wolfweres, Wandering 
Horrors.

Treasures: Mana Bow +4.

NPCs: none.


The main purpose of this place is as a gateway to Tethir. To navigate the map 
you must walk along the main tree-trunk down the centre and get off it at 
certain points.

In the NW you find an old companion, Coran, who asks you to help him rescue 
Safana. Go to the Wolfwere camp. Here, Safana turns out to be very nasty 
indeed and both Safana and Coran will die. Kill the Wolfweres.

You can search his cabin also. Defeat the nasties inside (Horrors, Mists, and 
Deaths) and search the cabin for several minor treasures and some 
healing/extra healing potions (very useful, but beware, all three chests in 
the N room are trapped with quite hard-to-spot traps.

In the central W you can fight two members of a wyvern-worshipping cult and 
their idols, if you so desire. Not much on their bodies, however.

In the E there is a cave (literally a door in the ground, Alice in Wonderland 
style). Inside is a pool to search for my favourite bow in the game, the Mana 
Bow +4, and two bands of Kuo-toa.

-------------------------------------------------------------
7.d. Graveyard revisited
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Vampires, Fledgling Vampires, Vampiric Mists, Skeleton Warriors, 
Grimwarders.

Treasures: Cutthroat +4.

NPCs: none.


At the district entrance, Bodhi appears, runs off and leaves you with four 
vampires to fight.

Now the crypts can only be accessed by the roof of the building in the E. 
Underneath, some minor treasures have been replaced or even changed.

In the NW, Drizzt and his party appear (if you enlisted their aid, that is). 
Eventually only Drizzt will stay for you.

If you got Holy Water from Elhan, you can pour this into the pool of blood to 
stop the vampires regenerating from it.

Head downstairs and kill Bodhi. Go to her coffin in the NE room, stake her 
(55000 xps/head and you get her heart and the Lanthorn).

In the rooms you can also find the Cutthroat +4.

Tell Elhan of your success, and he takes you to the Elven city of 
Suldanessellar, where a bitter war is raging…

-------------------------------------------------------------
7.a. Suldanessellar
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Stone Golems, Clay Golems, Adamantine Golems, Iron Golems, 
Rakshasas, Rajahs, Maharajahs, Trolls, Skeleton Warriors, 1 Nabassu, 1 Sand 
Golem, 1 Balor, Earth/Fire/Air elementals.

Treasures: Elven Chain Mail, Cloak of Elvenkind, Boots of Elvenkind, Girdle of 
Stone Giant Strength.

NPCs: none.


After entering (74500 xps/head), and talking to Elhan, fight your way to 
Demin's house. Inside, kill all your enemies, and talk to Demin, her route is 
the only way.

Many rooms in the city have level 9 spell scrolls inside, I've uncovered Time 
Stop, Meteor Swarm and Gate so far.

First, go to the House of the Talisman. Inside, use the puzzle box, the 
correct order is: Corellan, Rillifane, Water, Tree of Life, Suldanessellar.

Now, go to the House of the Moon. Inside, simply get the Moonblade off of the 
Elf's body.

Head to the NW now, and enter the Woodland Clearing (see that section)

There are also two stone artefacts, a horn and a harp, one held by the House 
of the Horn, the other by the Harpists, which you need.

When you return from the clearing, go to the Temple of Rillifane. Place the 
artefacts on the altar (65000 xps/head) and the avatar will appear and grant 
you access to the palace.

Outside, Reirra will appear with useful items and the Staff of the Woodlands 
+4.

In the palace, gather the nuts from the tree. Go through, and use the 
harp/horn on the statues (3000 xps each) and go down (use option 2 when 
talking to party members and they will stay).

Accept Ellesime, and find the three parasites. Attack them, and two elementals 
will appear and attack. Kill them then the parasites.

You are automatically taken to Irenicus, where you must kill him. However, 
instead of this being the end, you and all your friends are sucked into hell…

-------------------------------------------------------------
7.b. Woodland Clearing
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Nizidramonii'yt, a Black Dragon.

Treasures: Bladeslinger Chain +4.

NPCs: none.


Only one thing to do here, but it's a BIG thing, a black dragon. No matter 
what you say, you are forced to kill it.

In its horde is the final artefact of the elven gods that you need to summon 
the avatar. You're nearly there.

-------------------------------------------------------------
7.c. Hell
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Beholders, Gauth, Elder orbs.

Treasures: Blackrazor.

NPCs: none.


Don't worry about deaths from your fight with Irenicus, all your party will be 
restored with their equipment.

You must go down each tunnel in turn and achieve a Tear of Bhaal. In order 
from right to left, the tunnels contain:

E: PRIDE - show no pride, question why you should kill the enemy and the demon 
will vanish. Walk through and talk to the dragon and you get your easiest 
tear.

SE: FEAR - head along the N passage and kill all the Beholders (if you can!). 
Now grab the tear from the crystals at the end.

S: SELFISH - to get the tear you must choose. Go down the right-hand path and 
your part member will die, and you will become a Fallen character, losing 
class-specific abilities (if you're good).

The left path means you keep your friend and abilities, and also lose 2HPS 
from maximum, 1 dex., and some xps. You get the tear either way.

SW: GREED - take the sword. I recommend giving it to the genie, but you can 
fight it (v. hard) instead. You get the tear one way or another.

W: SAREVOK - in here, you are forced to fight a wraith of Sarevok, the main 
bad guy from BG1. Kill him for the tear. Note that he's every bit as tough as 
last time round!

Now use the tears on the Abyssal Door. Save and prepare, this is the last 
battle…

Irenicus will appear and summon two Glabrezus and two Balors to help him, in 
addition he turns into the Slayer!

Here's how I did it. First concentrate on the demons. When dead, get rid of 
the Misleading slayer, then head S. Here, use pierce magic, breach etc. to 
remove his protections. Now fight him - use only hand-to-hand combat weapons, 
and change into the Slayer. With a bit of luck and skill, Irenicus will 
finally die! 

Now you can watch and enjoy the sinister cut-scene… I think there's a BG3 for 
the future…

*****CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE COMPLETED BALDUR'S GATE 2*****

-------------------------------------------------------------
8.a. D'Arnise Hold
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Trolls, Ice Trolls, Giant Trolls, 1 Spectral Troll, Yuan-ti, Yuan-ti 
mages, Umber Hulks, Flesh Golems, 1 Stone Golem, Clay Golems, 1 Iron Golem, 1 
Otyugh.

Treasures: Ring of Earth Elemental Control, Dagger +2, Warhammer +1, +4 vs. 
Giantkin, Elven Court Bow +3, Battle Axe +3, Frostreaver, Shield Amulet, Flail 
of Ages, Orc Leather +3, Full Plate +1, Boots of Grounding, Staff of Striking.

NPCs: Nalia.

If you didn't get her in the Copper Coronet, she's in a palisade in the SW 
corner. See The Slums section for her stats.


***FIGHTER STRONGHOLD QUEST***

When you've completed this section, a fighter gets his Fortress.

Initially, once you have the keep, all you can do is sort out taxes with your 
Major. I advise keeping the taxes as they are for now.

Each week, you get 500 gps and a visitor to deal with.
VISITOR 1: A merchant whose caravan has been robbed by bandits wants to be 
payed for the caravan. You can also hire mercenaries to deal with the bandits.

I suggest this: give the merchant 500 gps (cha.15 or more) or 1000 gps (less 
cha.) and paying 500 gps for the mercs (15000 xps).

VISITOR 2: Captain Cernick has caught a man thieving. H's excuse is that he 
needs money for his wife's medicine. Let him off entirely and buy the potions 
he needs for 15500 xps.

VISITOR 3: Bolumir, Cleric of Tempus, wants to set up a chapel in the keep. 
This is advantageous as not only will you now have access to healing, he sells 
magic items (inc. Staff of Striking and Boots of Grounding), and accepting 
gets you 15500 xps. He is found on the upper floor in the room previously full 
of golems.

VISITOR 4: Roenall himself demands your land. Refuse.

VISITOR 5: Chantelle the maid wants to marry Jessup, but Malvolio wants to 
marry Chantelle also. Let Jessup marry and pay the full dowry for 15500 xps.

VISITOR 6: Two moneylenders demand 2000 gps. Pay them 1000 and all will be 
fine.

VISITOR 7: Four citizens demand 7000 gps for damage from a great flood and to 
build dikes to prevent further flooding. Pay the lot for 15500 xps.

VISITOR 8: Finally, Lord Roenall attacks. You have a set time to kill him, or 
you lose the keep. If you succeed, you get 50000 xps. He carries Full Plate +1 
also.

In the SW, there is a secret door in the side of the Keep, marked on the map. 
Enter, the idea on this level is simply wander around killing any stray trolls 
and searching for the treasure littered around.

In the NW, there is a special forge that can be used to repair the Flail of 
Ages (though it doesn't need all three heads, it's much better with them). 
Repair it for the item and 223500 xps.

The second floor, head S. In the library, get the key, this opens the doors. 
Same as before, wander, kill, search. On the W side you can enter a room where 
you'll find Nalia's aunt. Free her. Through the far door there are two secret 
doors. One leads to the stairs that take you to the basement where Lord 
d'Arnise is being held.

In the other room are six golems. Whenever you disturb the alcoves (containing 
powerful magical items), two golems attack. Take them two at a time, using 
your mace/halberd armed men/women to block the doorway and kill them all.

You can access the roof from this level, but there isn't much to do up there.

In the basement, go through the first two doors, searching - in the third room 
are the leader's pet Umber Hulks.

In the room to the E are the trolls and their grand leader, it's a tough 
fight. Search the shrine and TorGal's body for some gems.

Go up and out to the courtyard, kill the otyugh and leave the dogs alone. 
Nalia now rewards you (10650 gps, ??? xps) and if you're a fighter she gives 
you the stronghold as your, er… stronghold.

-------------------------------------------------------------
8.b. Windspear Hills
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Ogres, 1 Gnoll Elite, 1 Baby Wyvern, Orcs, Wild Dogs, Ankhegs, Black 
Bears, Goblins, Hobgoblins (wizards, elites, captains), Vampiric mists, Shadow 
Fiends, Ruhk Transmuter, Kamikaze Kobolds, Vampires, 1 Adamantine Golem, Iron 
Golems, Stone Golems, Clay Golems, Dread Wolves, Wolfweres, Greater Wolfweres, 
"Guardians", Orc Archers, 1 Greater Wraith, Orogs, Trolls, Mutated 
Gibberlings, Fell Ghasts, Werewolves.

Treasures: Amulet of Protection +1, Battle Axe +2, Large Shield +2, Dragon 
Scale +2, Dragonslayer +2 (Peridan), Studded Leather +2, Two-handed Sword +2, 
Heartseeker +3, Holy Avenger: Carsomyr +5, Cloak of the Shield.

NPCs: none.


At the start you are forced to kill some monsters who turn out, when all dead, 
to be paladins (including Ajantis from BG1).

Accept Garren Windspear's aid and be very good to him and all his friends who 
talk to you - some bandits will enter, make a spirited attempt to kill you and 
teleport Garren's daughter off. Say you'll save her.

Head to the NE and enter the dungeons. Kill all, and in the main cavern, there 
are two smaller ones. Go through the N door (the only door!), fight all inside 
(beware the golems). Head W, accept Samia. Head NE, NW, NW, N, N, N, N and 
then prepare yourself.

When you've cleared the floor of all its treasure (neat items!) Samia 
reappears with a powerful war-party. Kill 'em all (hard!).

Now head back to the first golem fight and head E. Kill the vampires, carry on 
and take the Greater Wraith. Get the chapel key.

Go now to the entrance to the maze and head down the W branch, kill the 
wolfies, note that Greater Wolfweres regenerate amazingly fast, so 
Disintegrate, Slay Living and similar are about the only ways to kill them.

From the circular room, W heads into a room where to "men" try to lure you 
into their "den". To get the treasures w/out a fight, send an invisible 
character through past the two men and get the goodies from the rooms past 
there.

When you re-enter their room they'll tell you to follow them, don't go 
through, nick the goodies from THIS room then leave.

NW heads to a room where some squabble between a troll, a wolfwere and a 
hobgoblin leaves some minor items on the ground.

Through the secret door is a very hard fight with some golems - their treasure 
behind them is the Heartseeker +3 longbow.

The N passage leads to another golem fight, then an orog fight. Go through the 
locked door, over the stairs into the next room, where you find DigDag, two 
orc lackeys and an old "friend" of yours, the ogre Tazok. Kill 'em.

Go into the cavern, talk to Fikraag, the red dragon (!) and when his wizard 
dimension doors, run upstairs quickly! Kill him, get the key and free Iltha 
(23750 xps). Now, leave!

Back at Garren's cabin, you'll be rewarded. If you're a paladin, you can now 
enter the High Hall of the Radiant Heart, see Temple section.

If you've kept the acorns from the dryads in Irenicus' dungeon, the Fairy 
Queen is found in the SE section. Give her the acorns for 32500 xps + 9750 
xps.

-------------------------------------------------------------
8.c. Umar Hills
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Umber Hulks, 1 Killer Mimic, Shadows, Shadow Fiends, Spotted Lions.

Treasures: Corthala Family Armour (Valygar), Corthala Family Blade (Valygar), 
Spear +1, Ilbratha +1.

NPCs: Valygar Corthala.

VALYGAR (human; male; neutral good; stalker; str.17 dex.18 con.16 int.10 
wis.14 cha.10)


There is a quest from the Government District in Athkatla to kill Valygar. You 
can let him join or kill him, it's you to you. He is the only way to enter the 
Planar Sphere in the Slums, I'll cover this in a later version.

Most of this section centres around a series of odd murders. Go to the village 
in the SW. Around the fountain, listen, then go to Minister Lloyd's house. 
Accept his quest.

Madaulf and his band are found in the centre of the map. Talk to them and 
they'll propose a peace deal, accept their quest to tell the village leader.

Go to Lloyd and tell him, he'll wander off (27500 xps). If you speak to 
Vincenzo in the Inn, there is the amusing "Umar Witch Project" tale, which 
takes the rip completely (fine by me because I HATE the Blair Witch Project!).

At the entrance to the town a group of youngsters give you 200 gps to buy them 
some swords and ale. Buy the swords and ale from merchants in and around the 
inn, give them the stuff for 2000 xps.

In the village, a mage named Jermien wants some mimic's blood for a golem. 
This is found (along with a killer mimic and other monsters) in the Umar Cave 
- open the chest once you've killed the killer mimic for some other stuff as 
well. Give him the blood for 19250 xps and the Ilbratha +1. However, his golem 
will attack - kill it and talk to him for 21250 xps. You can now search for 
spells and potions.

The concerns about a hired ranger voiced in the town can be realised in the 
SW, there are some interesting books to read here too.

Valygar, and whatever fate you have in store for him, are found in the NW 
corner. If you come from the W, there are some rangers who may try to stop 
you, come from the E and you'll meet them on the way out, if you head E, 
anyway.

Jeb, just outside the village will sell you some information for 300 gps. 
Accept, he'll tell you about Hendrick's chicken. Tell Hendrick you know about 
his item and offer to buy it for 50 gps - it's a priceless gem, worth 600 gps 
(not quite priceless then).

If you've solved the Skinner murders in the Bridge district you should have a 
letter. Follow the instructions - by the History of the Zhentarim off Fael. 
His "secret name" is Darcin Cole.

If you have the Human Skin on you, you can get silver dragon's blood as he 
requests. I'll continue with this in another, later version.

-------------------------------------------------------------
8.d. Temple Ruins
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Shadows, Shade Wolves, Shadow Fiends, 1 Greater Shade Wolf, Greater 
Mummies, Skeleton Warriors, Bone Golems, 1 Shadow Dragon, Wild Dogs, Giant 
Lynxes.

Treasures: Cloak of the Stars, Halberd +2: Duskblade, Darkmail +3.

NPCs: Mazzy Fentan.


The Temple itself is found in the NE of the map. It is swarming with monsters. 
By activating the Stained-glass window, you can dispel any shadows that come 
into the light.

Beneath the dungeon, head N from the junction. Kill everything in this room 
and the next, being sure to find the bones and the jail key.

In the jail is Mazzy Fentan, a famous Halfling knight. She offers advice and 
can join your party.

Head W from the jails and get the sun gem. You can head N as well to kill 
things, if you wish.

With the gem you can pass through the first shadow barrier.  Go through and 
over the bridge, get everything and kill everyone in this Room of Fire and the 
E room.

In the W room from here, give the bones to the ghosts for part of the Sun Icon 
and the Shadow Dragon Wardstone, plus 17750 xps.

Carry on and you'll come to a room with letters on the floor. This is done in 
the same way as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was done.

The name is Amunator, just walk over those letters in that order and no damage 
is done. Only send one man over.

In the next two rooms: the N room contains important items and the S room 
contains a Shadow that can't be trusted (kill it) and the second part of the 
Sun Icon.

Head back to the Statue at the beginning. Answer his questions on the rituals, 
if you get them all right he gives you the last Sun Icon piece (45500 xps) and 
you'll complete the Icon (21250 xps).

Go right back and now go straight past through the door into the cavern.

If you have the Wardstone the Dragon leaves you alone. Use the exit in the NW. 
Here you have to defeat the Shadow Lord (25000 xps) and his Altar. When all 
the enemies are dead, light returns (44250 xps/head). Merella appears and 
dies.

-------------------------------------------------------------
8.e. Trademeet
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Dire Wolves, Giant Spiders, Wild Tigers.

Treasures: Staff of the High Forest (Cernd), Cloak of the High Forest (Cernd), 
Shield of Harmony +2, Scimitar +2, Rashad's Talon.

NPCs: Cernd.

CERND (human; male; shapeshifter; true neutral; str.13 dex.9 con.13 int.12 
wis.18 cha.15)


Fight the animals and agree to help the city when challenged by the Militia 
Captain.

Go to the High Merchant Lord's house, accept. Go downstairs and find Cernd.

You should now head over to the Druid Grove.

When that matter is resolved, tell the High Merchant (2000 gps) and accept his 
new quest.

Go to the tent of the Dao Genies. Give their Khan the head of Ihtafeer (the 
Rakshasa in the Druid Grove area) for 10000 xps and a sword.

Tell the Guildmistress in the Mayor's home for 7500 xps, gems and a magic 
shield. Tell the High Merchant himself and you'll be honoured and get 
reputation +1, 25250 xps/head and 10750 gps.

You're also given the same quest by two feuding families. The best way to do 
this quest is this: go to either mansion and accept, you'll get the key.

Go to the tomb and accept the High Merchant's offer when he appears. Go in, 
kill all and get the Circlet.

Take it to the High Merchant for 250 gps, 8000 xps and reputation +1.

There is found in Trademeet Neeber, presumably cousin of Noober (from BG1) or 
something. Talk to him loads of times and much like Noober, you get 1000 
xps/head and some +2 bullets.

-------------------------------------------------------------
8.f. Druid Grove
-------------------------------------------------------------

Monsters: Trolls, Ice Trolls, Myconids, Spore Colonies, Rakshasas, Sword 
Spiders, Phase Spiders, Giant Spiders, Spiders, Ettercaps, Spirit Trolls, 
Spectral Trolls, Giant Trolls.
 
Treasures: Cleric's Staff +3, Amulet of Proof Against Poison, Scimitar of 
Speed +2: Belm, Bracers of Archery, Spear of the Unicorn +2.

NPCs: none.


Once you've agreed to help Trademeet, head to the NW. Here, meet Cernd and let 
him challenge Faldorn. Cernd will win, and you've freed the Druid Grove from 
the depredations of the Shadow Thieves, leaving Trademeet safe. That was easy.

There is a cottage in the NE belonging to a woman who is actually a Rakshasa. 
Kill her and her friends. You can get her head, and there are some minor 
treasures in a chest in this cottage.

In the deserted Ogre's Tower, there is a magical scimitar.

There is a Troll Mound in the SW. Enter, kill all the (many) trolls, and you 
can search the bones at the far side for some nice treasures.

-------------------------------------------------------------
NOTES ON THE SLAYER
-------------------------------------------------------------

At a certain point you gain the ability to shapechange at will into the 
Slayer, an incredibly powerful avatar form of Bhaal.

This may seem like an excellent idea, but I warn against it. Use only when 
ABSOLUTELY necessary.

Once the ability is used, you get one chance to turn back and stay as a human. 
If you continue the transformation, you first lose 2 reputation points.

After a short period you will start taking damage due to your slipping control 
on your self. Most likely if you start taking wounds as the Slayer you might 
die before you can change back - you can only use the change once a day, so if 
damage interrupts your "Shapeshift normal form" ability you're stuck as the 
Slayer for a day.

You continue to sustain damage for roughly one turn.

The Slayer's merits though is that it has huge strength, high resistances, 
causes horrific cold damage and looks very cool indeed.

GENERAL HINTS/TIPS
-------------------------------------------------------------

a. 	Creating a character
Due to higher levels than BG1, mages are finally powerful from the very start. 
At the end? Well, they're amazing.
    
For experienced role-players, a mage can be extremely deadly, and is probably 
the best choice. For a novice or one who is not into the magical arts (or, 
like me, just loooves paladins), the cavalier is probably the ideal class. 
Loads of protective and healing abilities, resistances to acid and bonuses 
against the tougher monsties make them perfect at combat.

However, the lack of ranged power is probably a bitter blow to the real 
newbie, so I recommend beginners pick a fighter. No restrictions and easy to 
get to grips with, there is no easier class to use.
Class by class rundown:

Fighter: easy to use, no restrictions, ideal for those new to TSR.
     Kensai: an even more dangerous fighter. Not recommended to new players 
due to the lack of any armour - careful use required.
     Berserker: probably a bit better than the bog-standard fighter due to the 
beserk ability but the disadvantages mean that it isn't as easy to handle as 
the standard fighter.
     Wizard Slayer: in my humble opinion the second weakest class. Sure they 
can do serious damage to all wizards including the game's main protagonist, 
but the lack of magical items means that against non-wizards they can be very 
weak late on in the game, which is when it counts.

Mage & Specialist Mage: excellent now for a clever or experienced player. The 
reason they are not as good for beginners is their lack of staying power. 
Always choose a specialist over a standard one - the extra spells can make a 
HUGE difference to your game.

Sorcerer: strong in the hands of a good player, but very hard to get to 
understand properly. Beginners should stay well clear until they have reached 
a respectable level of ability. Play up its strengths and try to hide its 
weaknesses.

Ranger: Ahh, a characterful and powerful warrior. Racial enemies and stealth 
make them very dangerous when used correctly. Use them as trackers and 
hunters. The only real weakness is their lack of large bonuses, but stacks of 
minor ones can be nasty.
     Stalker: Good a stalking (obviously), high stealth, pretty good. A few 
mage spells are handy too. They lack metal armour, but it's a fair trade.
     Beastmaster: Good for bringing help to the fray and no lack of combat 
strengths. They just aren't powerful enough to over-rule other classes.
     Archer: Again, not an ideal beginner choice due to lack of armour, they 
are perfect snipers. Very good class this. Use called shots often.

Bard: fairly weak at the lower levels, only really useful for identifying 
stuff and boosting morale.
     Blade: Good defensive power but they have a lack of rogue-ishness as the 
penalty. Can be good used carefully, but very poor in the thick of things, 
though they have staying power.
     Jester: Appalling. The ability to cause confusion against weak enemies 
(which are in short supply) traded for rogue abilities and just about 
everything worthwhile in a bard. Stay well clear, everyone.
     Skald: Nothing special at lower levels, but a very strong addition later 
on. Huge bonuses from their bard songs at high levels can swing entire 
battles.

Paladin: tough, many abilities and ideal for beginners. Can't say much more.
      Inquisitor: a worthy addition to the class list, their ability to almost 
ignore defensive magics mean that they actually beat the wizard slayer at 
their own job.
      Cavalier: my favourite. Stacked full of defensive upgrades and offensive 
bonuses against the super-powerful monsters make them characterful and 
dangerous in the extreme. The lack of any ranged power is a gripe but is 
easily outweighed.
      Undead Slayer: very powerful against the undead, but there isn't enough 
dead activity in the game to recommend them - they're just too specialised. 

Monk: Weird and super powerful at high levels. Ki energy abilities means that 
they can get away with costing little to equip and doing powerful damage. A 
bit complicated but very good. My second favourite.

Cleric: Can't get to high enough levels and their spells are mostly a bit 
rubbish. Not that bad, but in my opinion not worth bothering with. Priests are 
better but a bit similar.

Thief: Cunning and guile in a PC can turn these not too tough characters into 
stealthy killing machines. Setting traps makes them even better.
      Swashbuckler: good in combat, but not good enough at their thieving 
skills to be as good as the standard thief.
      Assassin: a cunning player can take out very powerful characters very 
quickly with this kit. Deadly but quite difficult to use and not as good at 
thieving stuff as they could be.
      Bounty Hunter: the best thief, their custom traps and nasty abilities 
make up for the lack of thieving effectiveness.

Druid: More poor priest spells, low armour and poor weapons. WTF is going on? 
Don't even bother.
      Totemic druid: a druid with very weak bonuses. Don't bother.
      Shapechanger: A better option but still not really worth your while.
      Avenger: the most powerful druid, but it still suffers from the often 
woeful restrictions of its mother class. Stay clear of all these classes if 
you want my advice (and if you don't, why are you here?).

NOTE: I've had a lot of e-mails telling me Avengers are very good. Why? They 
lose 2 on two vital stats, their spells are mostly poor until level 6/7, they 
make poor fighters and can't use most weapons/armour.

Multi-classes: Hmm… the best for a cunning player is the mage/thief. Annoying 
weapon restrictions aside, they can make themselves invisible and stab the 
enemy in the back, hard.
If you insist on priest spells, a fighter/druid is the best bet. The fighter 
knocks off the terrible restrictions of the standard druid and improves the 
class vastly. I prefer to steer away from multi-classers, as they take too 
long to level up to satisfactory levels and often never reach high enough 
levels to do any real damage.
My character is: human; male; lawful good; cavalier, with weapon abilities 
spread across all sorts of weapons and fighting styles. This gives you a 
close-combat monster.

b. 	stats

Charisma - use it! A high charisma is your best friend and can get you cheaper 
goods and makes people generally kinder to you. Coupled with a high reputation 
and it's a huge bonus. However, I say skip it. Why? Because before it becomes 
at all useful you can get the Ring of Human Influence. Problem solved.

Wisdom - unless you're a type of spellcaster, I'd keep it down to 9 unless you 
have plenty of extra points.

Intelligence - vital for mages but not that hot for anybody else. Mages should 
get it up, but keep it to 10 for others.

Constitution - the most important. Get an 18 here if at all possible. It makes 
your character tougher, more resistant to all sorts of things and more likely 
to stay on his feet.

Dexterity - handy for mages, thieves, bards and druids but those capable of 
wearing decent armour might as well forget about it. If the Gauntlets of 
dexterity turn up you might be able to ignore it altogether.

Strength - second most important after constitution. Again, do your best to 
get 18+ on this. The 19s possible on str. And con. Make half-orcs an enticing 
prospect.

-------------------------------------------------------------
MONSTER FIGHTING TACTICS
-------------------------------------------------------------

Stone Golems (Edwin's first quest): Use polymorph self to get a mustard jelly, 
much less killable and more dangerous, then use magical spears to finish the 
job. It's the only way…

The Umber Hulks' room in Spellhold: This is so @!"%* hard I'd just turn the 
difficulty down to Easy to do it. Cast spells galore and with a little luck 
you can take them down. It's not easy though.

Drow parties: Drow AI means they are very hard. Aside from being fast, all 
carrying magical equipment as standard, having a huge magical resistance and 
being able to cast spells (now see why I love Viconia?), they help each other 
- great AI - if one Drow can't get to the fight but is near another taking a 
battering he'll cast healing spells, which showcases the AI. This is more to 
notify you of their cunning (they hide round corners too, just when you think 
you've finally got rid of them…), but I recommend this course of action - use 
your warriors and other tanks as a front line to fill the narrow Underdark 
corridors, and use sling/bow armed thieves/mages at the back to mop up the 
healers and spell-casters hanging about ruining everything - you won't do the 
damage to kill, but you can easily disrupt their spells in this way. Good 
luck!

The d'Arnise Hold golems: Take them on two at a time by pillaging the alcoves 
one by one. Retreat to the doorway and use mace-armed, spell protected 
characters to take out the golems as they appear in the doorway. Easy when you 
know how!

All especially hard characters (ie dragons): If you have to talk to them to 
attack, click to talk, then stop and attack. You've now got plenty of time to 
thump it before it wakes up and starts thumping back!

Dealing with Mind Flayers: Simply summon a few Invisible Stalkers (you're a 
fool if you don't have at least 3 of this spell memorised), preferably buffed 
up a bit (a buff is a purely beneficial spell ie Bless, Chant, Haste etc), and 
use them to attack the 'Flayers. The 'Flayers special abilities have no effect 
on them whatsoever. Sometimes the swirly Confusion thing appears on their 
heads, but they're not confused, and will easily tear the 'Flayers apart!

Dealing with Beholders: Easy really - if you haven't got the Robe of 
Reflection you need to cast spell turning, and the Beholder will drop dead of 
its own spells, unless you're lucky and it makes all its saves before the 
spell turning wears off.

-------------------------------------------------------------
PARTY SKILLS
-------------------------------------------------------------

The ideal party should be capable of performing any task, and should include 
about one of each main class section. If I'm playing as the cavalier, my party 
is always as follows:

  Mazzy (a great fighter, pure and simple)
  
  Jan (the best thief with good stats and a few spells)
  
  Minsc (tough, good stats and versatile)
  
  Edwin (a very good caster)

  Viconia (VERY good dex. And wis., high magic resistance, useful in the 
Underdark)

I also like Valygar, Keldon, Aerie, Haer'Dalis and Jaheira in my party. 

Select your formations carefully, based on ease of movement and various combat 
situations.

That's my advice anyway.

-------------------------------------------------------------
CHEATING!
-------------------------------------------------------------

The cheat features are largely unchanged since the original Baldur's Gate. 
There are some minor differences, but that is to be expected. To get the 
cheats activated do these steps: 

Step One: Open the game's directory C:\Program Files\Black Isle\BGII - SoA 

Step Two: Open the Baldur.ini file in notepad. 

Step Three: Find the line [Program Options]. Under it are a variety of 
settings for your game. Add this line: Debug Mode=1 And it must be Debug 
Mode=1, not debug mode=1 or anything else. Save and close notepad. 

Step Four: Now when you are in the game, press CTRL-SPACE to bring up the 
Console. This is where you will enter all the cheats. Anyone familiar with the 
original Baldur's Gate cheats will find that the cheats are mostly the same 
from this point. At any point in the game, press CTRL-SPACE to bring up the 
console. There you enter in your cheat and press ENTER to execute the cheat.

EXTRA EXPERIENCE:
Open console and type CLUAConsole:SetCurrentXP(xxxx)

Where xxxx is the number of xps you want your character to have.

Note this has no bearing on your level.

ITEM CREATION:
Open console and type CLUAConsole:CreateItem(xxxxxx,yy)

Where xxxxxxx is the item code (see below) and yy is the amount you want. If 
you just want one, don't type this.

EXTRA GOLD:

Write in the console CLUAConsole:AddGold(xxxx)

Where xxxx is the amount of gold you want.

GO TO AREA:

Write in the console CLUAConsole:MoveToArea(ARxxxx)

Where xxxx is the area number (ie AR1000)

There are a couple more cheats and lists to do (including an area list) but I 
haven't got them yet so you'll have to wait…

-------------------------------------------------------------
OTHER MISCELLANEOUS STUFF
-------------------------------------------------------------

Modraikinnen's Sword is not alone, it would seem - if it dies (can be 
poisoned) or you pickpocket it, it actually carries a magical Greenstone 
Amulet (casts Mind Blank, for some reason not in BG2)!

If you have over 100% resistance to anything (usually fire), then it HEALS you 
rather than hurting you!

Tactic: Put two invisible party members to cover a doorway completely. Move 
your character through them, then when an enemy pursues, they won't be able to 
move through your human blockade (provided they don't attack). The target is 
now easily defeated from range.

-------------------------------------------------------------
WEBRING
-------------------------------------------------------------

There's loads of BG2 stuff on the net - try the following brilliant websites:

Information and Downloads-
   http://bg2.dbtavern.com (this is brilliant!)
   http://bg2.dungeon.com (so is this!)
   http://www.interplay.com/bgate2 (the official one)
   http://www.planetbaldursgate.com (this is the best!)
   http://www.bg2world.com (not as good as the others)

I think all those links are correct.

-------------------------------------------------------------
BALDUR'S GATE
-------------------------------------------------------------

If you like BG2, I urge you to get BG1, it's possibly even BETTER than the 
original - the best use of sound in any game, the best dungeons by far (really 
scary - good lighting, great sound, brilliantly designed), and it had this 
indefinable charm to it that makes it easily the equal of its sequel - and 
possibly even better - imagine mixing the best of both games… what a game that 
would be! (BioWare, are you listening for BG3 advice?)

But for £15 with the expansion pack (essential), it's a knockdown bargain, and 
it's even less if you buy it of gameplay.com, so go and buy it now!

One day I'll put this in some kind of order. Don't hold your breath.

Note that many of these characters carry potion etc. but I have only noted the 
most valuable items they have.

-------------------------------------------------------------
SPELL TACTICS
-------------------------------------------------------------

There are countless different spell combinations that can lead to victory. 
Here I'll show you through a handful of them.

"Lay Down And Die!": A tactical spell to put any opponent out of the 
picture. Either naturally or in a Sequencer cast Greater Malison followed by 
Emotion (both level 4). This should make any opponent fall down on the ground 
in despair. If it still doesn't work, try a Stinking Cloud, but the original 
effects with a -8 penalty should be enough. Doesn't work on magic resistance 
though.

"Don't cast that spell at me!": Similar to above, but replace Emotion with 
Creeping Doom or Miscast Magic. No spellcaster can handle that. Couple with a 
Wizard Slayer for maximum effect.

The Elemental Risks: I don't recommend summon elemental spells (especially the 
lesser summonings) with mages as either one of two things tends to happen: 
they either attack you or stand about doing nothing (this is especially true 
of Air Elementals, they just sit there doing nothing). Do it with priests, it 
works then.

The many uses of Magic Missile: Annoying spell protections nos. 1 and 2: 
Mirror Image and Stoneskin. Either of these (and Iron Skins too) fall quickly 
to one or two Magic Missiles. A level 9 missile will inflict this spell 
removal against any of these with almost guaranteed effect.

Of course, Greater Malison is one of the game's best spells, and nearly all 
spells work under its effects.

I've been asked several times what spells should be picked. Well, I've put 
together a list of the top 5 spells of each level you pick for at the start, 
in brilliance order, taking into account the scrolls you get early in the game 
(ie you get Flame Arrow so it's not down here):

Level 1: 
1. 	Magic Missile
2. 	Shield
3. 	Identify
4. 	Chromatic Orb
5. 	Charm Person

Level 2:
1. 	Melf's Acid Arrow
2. 	Aganazaar's Scorcher
3. 	Mirror Image
4. 	Glitterdust
5. 	Horror

Level 3: 
1. 	Hold Person
2. 	Melf's Minute Meteors
3. 	Protection from Cold
4. 	Protection from Fire
5. 	Minor Spell Deflection

Level 4:
1. 	Greater Malison
2. 	Stoneskin
3. 	Polymorph Other
4. 	Fireshield (Red/Blue)
5. 	Confusion/Emotion

-------------------------------------------------------------
PLAYING MULTIPLAYER ON YOUR OWN
-------------------------------------------------------------

A valuable tool that lets you make your own party meaning maximum effect 
against all enemies. I recommend this party:

Human cavalier: The ultimate unkillable combat monster.
Elf archer: The ultimate ranged beast.
Halfling thief: Full thief skills, essential.
Human conjurer: Spell casting power doesn't come any easier.
Human priest of xxxxx: For healing and creeping doom.
Half-orc Kensai: Tres tres nasty, my friends, with str. and con. at 19!

The alternative is the classic BG1 party - the Ranger bash.

Human ranger: combat nasty with bonuses.
"           ":"                        "
Elf archer: nastier from range.
Human Cleric: Buff/healing/creeping doom.
Human specialist mage: the obvious
Halfling Thief: for the obvious.

I prefer the first one, but it's entirely up to you, I certainly used the 
second in BG1 (Me, Minsc, Kivan, Branwen, Dynaheir, Quayle/Safana/Imoen).

-------------------------------------------------------------
HOW TO KILL A DRAGON
-------------------------------------------------------------

Possibly the most powerful and diverse species you encounter is the dragon. 
There are four in the game, all of different species, that do different 
damage. And you might think that your hero with 125% magic resistance, cloak 
of mirroring and the Dragonslayer sword is safe, but oh no…

Here's a run down on the three dragons you fight (you help the Silver Dragon, 
and she helps you, see Underdark section).

Red: The Red Dragon is actually Lord Jierdan Fikraag. He is found underneath 
the Windspear Hills.
   BREATH TYPE: fire damage, circular radius.
   MAGIC RESISTANCE: very high.
   ITS MAGIC: level 3/4 spells (hold person, dispel magic, stoneskin).
   HORDE: money, red dragon scales, Holy Avenger Carsomyr +5.

Shadow: This Dragon is under the Ruined Temple. You can be rendered invisible 
to it by a Wardstone.
   BREATH TYPE: electric damage, cone radius.
   MAGIC RESISTANCE: medium.
   ITS MAGIC: level 3/4 spells.
   HORDE: money, shadow dragon scales, crom faeyr scroll.

Black: Called Nizidramonii'yt, this is Irenicus' steed, found in the Woodland 
Clearing NE of Suldanessellar.
   BREATH TYPE: acid damage, cone radius.
   MAGIC RESISTANCE: low.
   ITS MAGIC: equivalent to level 1/2 with stoneskin too.
   HORDE: money, cup of life, bladeslinger chain +4.

In addition all dragons do great damage with their slashing claws and have 
"wing attack", which blows your party away unconscious (I believe there is a 
save vs. Spells, but it has a very large penalty).

Of course if you have Lower Resistance then suddenly that high magic 
resistance is not so much of a problem, and Finger of Death preceded by 
Greater Malison will finish off most any beast.
