    Has to be the Druid spell Energy Blades. I love it, so much damage so quick. It's cool looking and powerful.

    Jon Irenicus' cutscene spells are the coolest. :)

    Aren't Irenicus' spells real ones that you can cast in the game?

    Yep, they're real spells. Its just that the computer really cheats a lot and puts in like ten spells in a single Spell Trigger and things like that, which end up making all those special effects and he looks all cool.

    As far as the coolest spell in the game is concerned, damaging spells-wise, Fireball...it just looks SO cool! I stopped using it ages ago when I realised it had a 15d6 damage cap and Skull Trap didnt...but it just looks really cool. Especially if you have Improved Alacrity on and then lob about 6-7 of them into the enemy ranks!

    Otherwise, the coolest spell would have to be Time Stop. How cool is it to TOTALLY stop time? That is Godliness to the extreme... :eek: :eek:

    That is not a druid specific spell. Mages and clerics have access to that spell as well.

    Hmmm -- for mages, I'd have to say Dragons Breath, though I am also fond of Black Blade of Disaster; for clerics, I'd say energy blades; for druids, there are so many but I'd vote for Natures Beauty and Creeping Doom.

    Abi Dalzim's Horrid Wilting.
    I think this spell looks amazing; also, it does absolutely no damage to friendly party members. Cool

    Even if it's only your party members in range? That seems strange.

    I like Finger of Death...the idea of pointing your finger and instantly killing a dragon is great.

    I know I am cheesy and lazy and don't like to read long spell description, so my favorite is summon planetar (or deva). Fights for you, heals you, cures panic. What else do you want? And the fallen ones look cool, too.

    At low levels Fireball is a killer. Later on I'd go with either Time Stop or Summon Deva/Planetar.

    Timestop is the coolest.

    I also like the look of magic missile.

    It must be the most overpowered spell in BG1 or BG2--a level one spell that ignores magic resistance, has no saving throw, penetrates all spell protections (including spell trap, spell deflection, spell immunity, etc.) and even stacks with itself.

    * spoilers below *


    It must be Infravision, of course.

    IMO, the coolest spell effects are storm of vengeance and dragon's breath.
    Coolest in terms of gameplay though? Either finger of death, disintegrate or imprisonment..I know the last two take away access to that person/creature's equipment, but the thought of completely disintegrating someone is pretty cool, as is damning someone to millenia magical imprisonment...
