    Um... Why do you want to kill him? You're not supposed to.

    Indeed.... I never tried to kill him and I suppose it can't be done. When you killed him, you still have a closed door. I don't think you'll get the portal key as loot and when you should be able to get inside, you would find all watchers etc. hostile, so it won't help you. Just get the book and forget about the rest.

    He might be killable in the last chapter, after you exit the dungeons of Candlekeep.

    i tried after i got out of the catacombs so i knew he had served his purpose but i was trying to see how many key people can die. Elminster can't, Gorion can but it is difficult...and the list goes on...thalantyr didnt put up a fight and i thought he was supposed to have a black staff of power...


    i have beaten the game five times so i thought i would try something different...

    When do you get the opportunity to kill Gorian? ... oh... you mean at the begining? ah! Well, one thing hits my mind, how come he can cast spells so quick and other mages can't?

    Remember that Gorion is at a higher level then any other mage in the game even dares to dream of... I suppose he uses spell triggers and sequencers to cast that magic missiles. He also may have items that reduce spellcasting time.

    You CAN kill Ulraunt.
    He only has a Knave's Robe and a Staff+1 though.

    I always thought that Gorion was using improved alacrity.. till it hit me that no spell sequencer can include lvl 9 spells

    What I want to know is how does Firebead Elvenhair have so many spells to cast and yet only fire off one magic missile per casting? It doesn't bloody make sense that he has 5 2nd level and 5 1st level spells and one magic missile at a time.

    We already talked about that... I suppose he can't and why should you try?You would only make the people of Candlekeep pissed of more, and they won't thrust anyone even worse.
