Weird little bug... (several mods installed)

    Unfortunately one that works AGAINST me, but a bug no less...
    My party was going through the De'Arnase hold (Cleric/Mage + Aerie + Jan + Jaheira); and I found I didn`t have any +3 or better weapons. So I went upstairs and got the Warhammer +1, +4 vs Giantkin; dispatched the relavant golems with a fair amount of ease, rested and revived, and decided to try the Iron Golem.
    I gave my warhammer +4 to Aerie, and cast Melfs Minute Meteors. I got big and rusty stuck in the doorway, and started throwing burning chunks of rock at him.

    Quitzin: Weapon Ineffective

    Yet, it *should* work; I ran this by one of the BG2 Gurus from Ironworks, and he agreed that it was wierd.

    I have installed:
    SOA + SOA Official Patch + Baldurdash SOA Fixpack v 3.61 + Latest Version of Valen + Latest Version of Ease-of-Use + Latest Version of Item Upgrade.

    For the record, I gave up on De'Arnase for the moment, and went to trademeet. I have dumped Jaheira for Cernd, mainly for faster leveling; and haven`t had any similar bugs since.

    I am going to get Jaheira back though after the Druid Grove, to get the second Harper Hold quest (the one with Galvarey wanting to imprison the Protagonist); I *want* that Sorcerian Ring from Item Upgrade :D

    Perhaps it's because Iron Golems are immune to fire.

    Those golems are pretty darn immune to ALOT of things...

    That ring does kick butt, especially on a sorceror...

    What does the sorcerian ring do? Is it possible to get without doing the harper quest, maybe by just forcing my way into the Galvarey estate and kicking butt?

    No, you cannot force yourself in and kick butt. You've got to do the quest in order do meet with Galvery. There is one or two quests before you meet with him and he realizes you're a Bhaalchild. The quests are not hard, so you might as well do them.

    Sorcerian ring is added by item upgrade, Cromwell forges the Ring of Wizardy, Ring of Acuity, and Amulette of Metaspell influence into one ring. It adds one spell for each level 1-6.

    Sorcerian Ring + Any other ring you want + Amulette of Power + Robe of Vecna + Staff of the Magi + Girdle of Inertial Barrier = Even more powerful Mage/Sorcerer :)
