    Seems to be of vital importance to always have your protagonist selected. Seeing as he is a wizard I often keep him in the back so this could be a problem.

    I have found molds but only for normal weapons is that the same thing? I craft a longsword and then I can add stuff to it for example? There are no molds for longsword of ultimate death?

    Correct. You can craft weapons using various materials (iron, cold iron, alchemical silver, mithral, adamantine, wood, etc.). The mold description tells you how much of what kind of thing you need to make it (e.g. 3 metal ingots or 2 wood planks).

    Once you have the weapon (you can also buy a weapon with or without enchantments), you can have up to three enchantments on it in the OC (e.g. +5 enchantment, +2d6 Holy damage, +1d6 fire damage).

    You killed him too fast. It's a known bug that if you do massive damage on Azure, his cutscene won't play. A lot of people has posted that bug on the offcial forums.

    As for warmaces, you can see here on SP which one you can buy or run into:

    As for crafting guides, I can't find one here, but here is a link to a really good one:

    Ok, I have a quick save before I "pulled" him (WoW term ;)) so I will just take it a bit easier. To continue with the crafting, my PC is a wizard. Will I be able to craft anything interesting for him or is it only mad melee weapons you can create?

    You can create weapons, armor, shields and some other miscellaneous wondrous items. I never played a wizard so I never made any of the wondrous items, but I made lots of weapons, armor and shields...

    You can I.E. craft a Robe of the Archmagi:

    Special Properties:

    Armor Bonus +5
    Spell Penetration feat
    Bonus Level 5, 6, & 7 Wizard/Sorcerer Spells
    Spell Resistance 20
    +3 Universal Saves

    Arguably the best robe in the game for a sorcerer/wizard.

    Boots of Striding +8 which gives +8 to CON, Headband of Intellect +8, and Bracers of Armor +8, is useful for a wizard/sorcerer also.

    There is variety of amulets crafted which you might find interesting also.

    Yeah, I found a book on how to craft rings of wizardry when I finally managed to kill that blue wizard. He bugged out four times but hte fifth he died and I took it real slow. Let him unload everything he had, let him drink a few potions he almost killed my party in the process but that time I got the cut scene and he died at least.

    Let's see if I can double post.

    I have to say that alignment system is totally wack in this game. My neutral wizard/red mage just turned neutral good because I never acted like a complete jerk or slaughtered and robbed people whenever the oppurtinity arised. That is just utter bullpoo. I have tried to RP neutral as much as I have been able to but punishing players for their conversation options is just plain wrong. Even in the game's own description of neutral it says nothing about having to press people for money or generally act like a jerk to be neutral. I try to play a character that is mostly interested in knowledge and power but isnt willing or interested to kill or maim for the fun of it. Is there any point in there being the option of a neutral alignment as nothing that isnt puppy squishingly evil is considered good?

    I am now barred from continuing as a red wizard after one level and that is just plain wrong. How in character is it if my PC had decided to rob a few old ladies just to be able to continue with his PrC of choice?

    Just get greedy and ask for compensation for helping anyone out. ;)

    I know I read somewhere how you can change your alignment with the console commands, but I can't rememeber where...

    I have asked for compensation on several occasions! My dude is smart enough to know that he has 60k gold in his bags, another 300 wont matter while having people actually liking you is kinda useful and nice. Must be hell to try to play an evil character. Starting to think that they should just restrict people to play good in CRPGs and be dnoe with it.

    Try to stick to a deities neutral good alignment. Had to go back to an old save because my cleric could not level anymore, or had to choose an other deity. Or stay true neutral as a druid.

    off topic !! Whit so many crashes? Do you have vista? I had the same until I found a fault in one of my memory sticks.

    XP and I have been playing a lot of games and NWN2 is the only one that has been the least unstable.

    The problem is that most conversation options give you good or evil points, and staying neutral is tricky. (For me, staying neutral is tricky in any game.)

    If it's really important to you, here's what you should type in console:
    DebugMode 1
    rs ga_alignment(-1,0)
    (This will give you one one "evil" point(-1 Good to be precise), you might have to repeat the action to get your Neutral status again.)
    DebugMode 0

    I have already cheated my alignment back to neutral, I did it on an earlier quicksave and for some reason I did not level after all the cut scenes before Sand shows up. This of course forced me to give me the XP I had in my old save where I did level. Hope I havent opened Pandora┬┤s Box, I have a tendency to not stop cheating when I have actually started.

    The problem with most CRPGs is that they'll either have the "good" option or the "evil" option and no "neutral" option. Therefore the only way to stay Neutral is by balancing out good and evil acts. This IMO totally goes against a character who's Neutral because he doesn't get involved in either. But this problem is hardly limited to NWN2.

    Oh boy, what is the problem with Lorne Starling? I get him to near death, hurt him and it says I cant kill him right now or something? What is up with that? I am a freaking wizard, if I cant burst him down I have no chance in hell. I get three spells off or so before he kills and one of them is greater stoneskin. I am trying to kite him around but that berserk effect or whatever it seems to be there forever and I just cant kill him while he has no problem killing me. Any tips? I do not want to have Khelgar or someone fight for me and I seriously doubt he would fare any better than my PC. I just need to run around for a while longer until my spells will actually damage him again? Seems rather stupid. I can stop maybe three times to cast so one round too early and I am toast.

    Yes, either run around or incapacitate him or turn yourself invisible until his unkillable frenzied berzerker rage wears off. It's actually not that long.

    Oh, and if you go with Khelgar, you can use his Knockdown feat to incapacitate Lorne until his frenzied berzerker rage wears off too.

    I tried to turn myself invisible but he saw right through it and incapacating effects are risky. As I stated, I have time to cast maybe three or possibly four spells in total before I will get killed and using anything with a saving throw would be extremely risky. Not to mention that I think he is immune to quite a lot of spell effects while enraged.

    I'd just stay away for him until the thing wears off. Forget about attacking him, just keep running away. Expeditious retreat or something similar. Maybe a summon to keep him busy?
    In every case, keep running back and forth through the arena and you should be fine. His movement pattern is rather predictable - he follows you.

    He ignores summons and memorizing a few retreats might work. Is there any way I can see if he is going out of the frenzy?
