    [​IMG] Well, I like my hill giant strength belt. Why? Cuz I can use it to get equiptment with a high strength requirement onto my weak charactors. After I equip em, I just take the belt off, and they still use it :) Otherwise, I like my Belt of Inertial Barrier. Keldorn is IMMUNE to magic!

    The long sword which unleashes sunray.
    No undead can survive a blast from that.

    What about Crom Fayer?! It gives you 25 stength! And ofcourse Daystar, but it doesn't kill undead outright, only of they don't save or if they are allready weakened, so they die of the damage the sunray does.

    [​IMG] Difficult to say, favourites first:

    practically: bag of holding, scroll bags, gem bags

    magic items: amulet of power (very handy for mages), rings of regenaeration, ring of gaxx, regeneration ion stone

    armor: shadow armor (for it can be used by kensai-thieves), firedragonscale, armor of the hart, elven chain and drow-plates/ drow-chains

    weapons: boneblade +4, flamethounge, namarra, C`Fury and flail of the ages, mace of disruption, skullcrusher

    :rolleyes: powergaming items like Crom are for cheating cowards only :rolleyes:

    Bag of holding eliminates almost all $ problems, so it's got to be up there..
    Master Thievery potions can do the same, so they're good too.
    I just, on my 4th time through, started using wands. Paralyzation can stop most vampires, Fire, can shoot 50 balls and 50 Aga.. Scorchers, freeing up valuable spell slots, and Fear can make those early battles a snap and it's usable by both Clerics and mages.
    Moster summoning allowed Jan to take out those Pirates in a cave my himself (with 5 goonies too of course).

    Bet it's hard to beat a thief carrying that speed belm and Celestial Fury. Deat in a heart beat.

    But number one? Depends on your class, but as a thief it's hard to beat 'hide in shadow'. Even when he's weak, you can block a doorway with him and shoot from a safe distance with everyone else. A good backstab took out Tanovea with one hit, and I was only level 11.

    And I just love the unmentioned beauty of the Amulet of Power... immunity to level drain!

    Shadow Armor can not be used by k/thief. I'm surprised by you Ragusa. You were my k/t mentor...

    [​IMG] Toast: To prevent errors - I´m talking about Mer´Var´s shadow armor and to my surprise it can be worn by kensai-thiefs (not the shadow dragon scale) - as I found it was the only one in the game. I *know* that a kensai shouldn´t be able to wear armor at all so it´s maybe a bug in the german version of BG-2 :)

    He Ragusa,
    so Crom is for cheater's and weaklings eh?
    But YOUR Kensai shouldn't be able to wear armor, and still you use it, because you need it.
    MAYBE you are cheating as well and MAYBE you aren't as good as you would like to be... ;)

    Hmmz there's a better Thief's armor in my opinion. The armor that you can Cromwell crates when you give him the scales of the shadowdragon. (AC1 50% Acid resistance) (Night Gift is AC 3)

    And the only thing where WarBlade is good for is too kill Fierkraag to get the Holy Avenger :)

    I realy love the Gesen Bow and the Gauntlets of Dex...

    [​IMG] Punisher: Oh, that´s quite simple, my char don´t don´t really need it, he wears it for it is fashionable - not for chance he´s wearing the ring of charisma instead of the ring of protection (he´s a real womenizer) - and it reduces my AC to -3 IIRC, not enough to speak of cheating :D :p

    Shadow Dragon Scale rulez
    Shadow Armor sux :)

    Easy, ain't it :)

    I always loved the gauntlets of Dex, what would Keldorn be without it, not a tank but a die-hard-visitor of the hospital :)
