[Q] IWD/IWD2 version of the BG2 ability Improved Alacrity?

    Hey guys! I apologize if there is already an answer to this somewhere. I have been searching for some time with no luck.

    In BG2 there is a GLA called Improved Alacrity that allows you to cast multiple spells per round for a short duration (specifically, you were allowed to cast a spell immediately after the previous one was finished). Does IWD or IWD2 have any spells, equipment, etc., that allow for a similar effect?

    Please note that I am not referring to a way to speed up cast times, nor am I referring to Contingency or Sequencer spells. I know there are plenty of ways to cast spells faster, but those methods still only allow you to cast one spell every ~7 seconds. I am looking for a way to be able to continually cast spells without having to wait for the start of a new round.

    Also I am not above using a mod, save game editor, etc. to achieve this affect. I've beaten the game plenty of times now and have nothing against using cheating methods to achieve a faster paced (if overpowered) spellcasting gameplay.

    No.

    IWD:EE has all the opcodes inside EE engine, I imagine, so one could most likely use it to reproduce the effect.

    I don't recall it being possible in IWD2. Not that I've paid much attention to it. What would be the point anyway? Spellcasters in 3E easily obliterate all opposition without needing to rely on a broken action economy.

    Are you still looking for this by any chance? I used to have permanent improved alacrity on my casters by adding the opcode 188 (Aura Cleansing) on to their effects. Now I've created items in DLTCEP (one for each game) that I hand out to each party member at the start of a campaign.
