    I'm not sure if it's a mod I might have installed (I believe the only thing I have on atm is faster cutscenes, not even infinate stacking or xp-cap remover), but thus far just in Irenicus' dungeon a few things have been missing.

    Mail of the Dead +2 - Which from reading Simpsons guide, apparently Ilyich drops that, or 3 other special armors (and only leather dropped for me)

    and the Helm of Balduran is missing.

    Do these things only drop if you're a specific race/class? I didn't import, so I'm not sure what might be going on, or if I've been playing humans for the last however many years without ever trying a different race (oops!).

    Mail of the Dead might not show up if you start an multiplayer game with your custom characters.

    Ah, I am in a single player game, I should have probably mentioned that :).

    You're sure that your character had no items on him/you created a new one, right?

    Then, please, post your Weidu.log from your Baldur's Gate 2 directory. It's standard procedure: if not me, then someone else will tell you which mod has interfered.

    Actually I went and re-installed the game vanilla, since that was the intended run method. At this point I'm pretty sure it was a tutu mod that interfered with the game, I may have installed one or two on accident in the BG2 directory.

    If you had SCS II installed, it might have been due to the "Remove unrealistically helpful items from certain areas" component.

    If you're importing from BG1, some items could be replaced as well.

    No, I have that installed and still got that armor, AFAIK it doesn't mess around with drops, only with items in chests/containers.

    I went over the mods I had saved in a separate folder and I had one that saves gear from BG1 to BG2. I'm guessing that's it. I did not import a character, I generally start up BG2 with a fresh character created on the spot.

    That item seems to be removed with either the installation of TOB, or the patch for TOB. I remember having/using it when I just had SOA, then I got TOB, and now I don't get the mail of the dead anymore.

    I always get the Helm of Balduran, but lately it seems I don't get the armor anymore, I do play mostly Multiplayer with 1 or 2 extra characters made by me, I must try single player.

    I don't have any "Remove unrealistically helpful items from certain areas" components installed.



    Here is my Weidu, is there is anything in there making this armor dissappear can someone identify the component please.

    I didn't know that if you imported from BG1 it would interfere? If your imported character was holding the helm (then did the pause trick right at the beginning to thus keep your old items) you'd STILL be able to find the other one in Irenicus' Dungeon and thus have two.

    Yes, importing and then pausing before the first grunt to save your items will get you a second helm in the dungeon.

    I'm not entirely sure, because Ilyich died north of the table so his stuff was only accessable through the table, but the mail of the dead might actually be a container item of one of those tables. If so, it could be affected by the "Remove unrealistically helpful items from certain areas" component.
