    I think Breach, Pierce Magic and Lower Resistance don't count as you _must_ use them or else.

    My favorite defensive spell is of course Stoneskin, closely followed by Ghost Armor.

    In the offensive sphere, I am a fan of Chromatic Orb (when you least expect it, it halves your labour in a fight) and Chain Lightning (takes out the smallest enemies. Also until you get Abi Dalzim it is the best party-friendly area effect spell). Skull Trap is another underestimated spell - it does the same work as Fireball, but deals more damage, does pure magical damage and not elemental (either a bonus or a malus, depending on the foe) and can be used both as a delayed and as an instant attack.

    Among the remaining ones, I just *love* Limited Wish. Be quick in having your _cleric_ talk to the djinni and you can get 6 Globes of Invulnerability at the cost of a level 7 spell.

    easy, favourite spells:
    Haste (can't live without it)
    Magic missile (Low level, and quite powerful)
    Flame Arrow (Mid level, still VERY powerful)
    Abi Dalzim's Horrid Wilting (Deadly!)
    And also, ofcourse
    Cone of Cold (Fun to use, and does quite much damage)

    Insect plauge, or creeping doom, best spell.

    What about spell sequencer? I sequenced 3 FLAME ARROWS...Wow, that was a lot of damage, it filled up a whole maximized menu worth of damage listings (all 10+ damage). Needless to say, that gibblering was sorry he crossed me :)

    Although I've never found a good use for it, Grease always seems to make me break out in giggles.

    At the moment I discover the hidden strengths of cleric spells like boom of Lathander, coordinated defence, bless, smithe evil (great on vampires, beholders, sahuagin, trolls, and Kua-Toas), just magic, holy might (not draw upon holy might), poison (lvl-4 spell) and such. I have to say I always underestimated clerics.

    My halfling priestess of Lathander now is lvl-20 and I'm looking forward to face Bohdi the second time - after I did the planar sphere quest (and I almost reached the x-cap). Not quite a spell but ... turn undead is funny ;)

    Guess there are som good combo spells:

    Time Stop, then Abi-Dalzim and Improved Mantle/Absolute Immunity, then Time Stop again and 3 more Abi-Dalzim. Unbeatable tactic.

    Then we have the Spell Sequencer:
    Cast Spell Sequencer and put 3 Chromatic Orbs in it (if you're lvl 12+). Killed Firkraag with this tactic.

    Then of course the outstanding, BUT kinda boring tactic:
    Time Stop (not neccecary), Web, Stinking Cloud and Cloudkill. Possibly Death Fog to.
    Cast Fireballs into this and you'll.... own. :lol:

    Eh, try doing that to Kangaxx or [ToB monster removed]. You'll own? Wtf man... those are just "rubbish" (considering you can cast way higher level spells) low level spells (except for the timestop).

    Plus that most spells doensn't work on Kangaxx. Overall it's Abi-Dalzims HW, but you'll get it somewhat deep in the game.

    And I'm no idiot; I just said the spells that I've had most use - atleast among the most - of. Can't kill Kangaxx with most of the spells (if any?).
    I was only doing what I'm suppose to do in this thread; say my favoutie spell... And I say again: moron...

    [Did I not just say no personal attacks? I expect you to follow my directions; if you do not or cannot, you are not welcome here. - BTA]

    [​IMG] Blackthorne, it was no personal attack... I was just stating that he is the idiot of the week/board, like it was shown on his avatar. After all, he called me a moron first :p.

    [You two really are a combo... Now you go read the Forum Rules & FAQ and see what it says about Idiots & Morons: "Advice to other forum members regarding the treatment of Idiots or Morons: Do not mock them or point out their mistakes any more. They have been punished already, and if they need further encouragement, the admins will take care of it." And it's besides the point now since his week's up and the plaque was removed.] -Tal

    And no you cannot kill Kangaxx with any spell. Besides your Ubercombo... try that on the party fex found in the sewers of the Temple district. Or even the party in the Guarded Compound.
