Honest statement, I consider myself a newbie. Seriously, I used to play bg2 a lot in my earlier days, then I spent countless hours on NWN online RP servers, recently I came back when I heard about the Enhanced Editions, rushed through bg1 now almost finished bg2 and felt like I lack the challenge... wow I'm such a badass.
So I decided to poke about some mods and saw some of you guys talk a lot about SCS, which I never heard of before. Got it running yesterday, started a new bg2 game with a figher/mage and got my ass kicked seriously hard. For the first time in bg I felt hopeless and totally out of control.
My god, these guys quaff potions one after another, they shoot spells at me I never even considered useful. My wizard's protection spell was usually stoneskin only, party buff remove fear and prot from evil was more than enough for most encounters, I used true sight only to get those liches 5 seconds faster when they used mislead, and now I spend most of the time reading the dialogue window to find out what the hell just happened. Forsooth, @DavidW
, you know how to shove someone's pride up his arse, this is hilarious
Can you guys tell me, from your experience with SCS, which of your habits from the vanilla game you had to break to stand a chance against SCS?
