    Is there a reliable place to find the level 5 mage scroll spell shield? I've only been able to find it as random treasure. And my spellbook looks so incomplete without it :(

    Try Galoomp the Bookkeeper at Waukeen's Promenade.

    Also in Waukeen's Promenade, but this time above the Mithrest Inn and Ilmaterian temple there's a stall where a fat man is selling spells. In cities other than Athkatla you should be able to buy just about any spell without major problems.

    It so happens that you two were referring to the same guy. And no, he doesn't have it available.

    I'm fairly confident that I've checked the shops available in Chapter 2 already, unless there's a sneaky little-known shop (which is partly why I started the Fences thread)

    So I'm hoping there's a monster or an encounter somewhere that drops the scroll. Or maybe someone can confirm that the shop in Ust Natha has it?

    Spell Shield actually helps very little, since it only protects you from ONE dispel attack (such as Breach or Pierce Magic, but not Dispel Magic). I find that if you've got an enemy mage attacking yours anyway, he's already gone!

    I don't use it either, and there are far better 5th level spells out there. I'm just obsessed about collecting all the spells. :)

    Galoomp should have it... Are you sure you havn't bought it from him before?

    However if you cant find it, IIRC kobolds seem to drop them quite often.

    ok, I'll count on the random encounters then. :(

    Casts the Luck spell and goes hunting for kobolds

    Hey Blog,

    I came across it coincidentally after reading your post. In Saerk's house-- ground floor, middle room on the left hand side. Hopefully, it wasn't random.

    And if you aren't romancing Anomen, you'll have to be careful not to lose rep by killing guards.
