    Question: what's the experience cap?

    8,000,000 XP for the entire trilogy unless I'm mistaken. Someone more knowledgable might want to verify that - it may be different for the Enhanced Editions.

    @Sergio In BG1:EE it is 161,000. In BG2:EE it is 8,000,000. Not sure about the black pits...

    It's the maximum amount of XP any of your characters can get in the game - if you get more, it just is not added to your overall XP, you don't level up any more etc.

    89,000 XP for vanilla BG1

    161,000 XP with Tales of the Sword Coast

    161,000 XP for BG:EE

    8 000 000 XP for BG2:EE

    @Sergio‌ 161,000 in bg1. A lot in bg2 if your playing with a party, it doesn't really matter unless you're solo.
    *sees the 7th page* oh, ah.... I see someone else got to you. Sorry.

    The same way you came in... Through the fireball room.

    Thank you guys.
    Now I understand why my character, being level 9 - defeated SCS Sarevok and his party with such easiness.

    1- can you ally with karoug? I tried to but he says that I'm mocking him.

    2- Can you leave peacefully with the garoug?

    [spoiler] only with SCS, but in some of my last runs I died on the Island so there's a long time I don't go there, so I can't remeber well.

    Ah thanks CrevsDaak - I don't know why, but after having saved the baby, given the spellbook to the mage and took the corpse of the son of the father that asked me politely to get it back, I still wasn't able to convince the Garoug to leave me alone - and I'm good, with exceptional stats (22-19-19-22-20). A shame. I would like to see someone playing through that part - I'm genuinely interested on seeing how it ends.

    anyway, for anyone wondering, you can check what SCS adds here:

    I can't go through the fire room. all the doors on the labyrinth level 2 are locked and operated from inaccessible mechanisms. If you can help me out of here I'd be ridiculously grateful but if you can help me reset the 4 bosses to get me to the chess game, I'd be eternally grateful.

    Sorry you are going to have to explain this. Is the issue that one of the 4 guardians didn't summon or that when you killed the 4 guardians you weren't teleported to the chess room?

    Looks like this was a bug present in the original BG1 (or possibly just SCS I'm not 100% sure).

    http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/231/bugfix-durlag-s-tower-level-3-no-teleportation-to-chess-room

    My recommendation would be to activate the console and then move your party to the chess area.

    Should be

    CLUAConsole:MoveToArea("ARD006")

    I have never completed Durlag's Tower - I usually only go for the Wisdom Tome and then leave - because I can hit the xp cap without doing it and by the time I am at a sufficient level I am usually eager to start on BG2.

    However this time I really want that Two Handed Sword +3 and would really like to get it early (because by the time I am a high enough level to make the tower easy I am pretty much done with the first game, anyway).

    If anyone knows a shortcut on how to get that sword with as little pain as possible (without cheating), I would really appreciate it.

    @Stormvessel‌

    Durlag's Tower is my favourite dungeon in BG1 and even if I take BG2 into consideration I still think this dungeon is one of the best. I absolutely vote for you to complete it. It is worth it. To see locations, to know a story, to overcome interesting traps and enemies. Try it. At least once you should go till the very end of Durlag's Tower.

    As for your question, you can get this sword only by winning a chess game (I won't say anything else about it because you should see it yourself) at the 3rd level of Durlag's Labyrinth.

    Q:
    Is the Druid HLA spell "Greater Elemental Summoning" supposed to have a chance of a double summon?

    I've had Sunnis & Zaaman Rul both turn up on more than one occasion... To the absolute ruin of my enemies!

    Seems OP?

    Rats, and I was hoping that somehow perhaps there were some potions I could use and a way to sneak in and get right to the Chess game without the rigmarole. I can dispatch the 4 dwarf phantoms easy enough, it's just all the traps and return trips outside to sell make the dungeon very tedious for me. But I will press on and finish it because you do make it sound pretty epic.

    OK, that's it - I'm finally going to swallow my hatred for hippies (joke), accept the true neutral alignment, and roll a druid. :P

    Everything I've been hearing lately makes them sound freaking awesome.

    Technically I don't think they are but it could be a result of the games probability system. Are you running any mods?

    No mods... I'm a complete tech noob who gets twitchy using eekeeper!

    Jaheira was the potent summoner... The only non-normal element in the run was Minsc rocking as a Barbarian.

    Edit: It is on Mac though... If that has any relevance.

    can you play multiplayer on a modded game?

    For the best outcome you'll want to make sure the person playing multiplayer with you has the same mods. But yes its possible.

    Thanks for the reference Elminster and I killed all the bosses and it wont teleport me to the chess board and I've saved since I finished them so it sounds like all I can do is go back to the save I made just after installing the expansion :(

    Sorry can you clear up something. Are you playing the original BG1 or Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition?

    Probably just a case of the games probability system being out of wack. How often does it happen?

    Thank you. By the way, in Multiplayer, how do you choose who is Gorion's son?

    I assume it is whoever has control over the top left character in the character arbitration screen. Otherwise it would probably be the person who created the game.

    It happened often enough to be especially noticeable on that particular run (maybe 3 or 4 out of 10 castings?)… Not had a high level druid in company since though.

  • TressetTresset Member, Moderator Posts: 7,593
    @abacus That is a bug with some of the various staggered probability spells in the game. It would be very difficult to fix without messing everything up so I wouldn't expect it to be fixed any time soon, if ever (which is very disappointing to me). The only workaround for avoiding this bug is to turn off the round end and spell cast auto pauses until you finish casting the spell. The elemental summoning spells usually work but there are other spells that were hit much harder such as Alchemy (the HLA).

    What is in the works? I am looking for info about what additional content will be released for BG:EE and BG2:EE. Is there an IWD:EE coming, etc....not looking for rumors, just what is confirmed going to be created?

  • SergioSergio Member Posts: 605
    Does the monk class get the WIS bonus to AC ?
