How far can 70 in Find Traps take you?
In my current game of BG1:EE, I'm in Chapter 4, with all of my party members at level 4 in their respective classes. Imoen had been dual'd to a mage and has recently regained her thief skills. She has 70 points in Find Traps. I'd installed the component of the NPC Project that allows you to access Tiax and Alora at much earlier stages of the game. I had been using Tiax for thieving while Imoen level'd up. Now I've just arrived in Gullykin and swapped out Alora for Tiax (for RP reasons), and the likelihood is that I will use her as my party's main thief for the remainder of the game. However, she currently only has about 30 in Find Traps.
My question is, how far can I get with Imoen's 70 in Find Traps while I wait for Alora to reach a couple more levels and bulk up her stat? At this point, I'm probably going to head off for the Cloakwood forests, which means that I'll be encountering some horrific spider traps fairly soon. I'm playing the game fairly lineally, which means that I'm primarily focused on the main quest with a minimum of "wandering" around other areas. I know that over 100 in find traps is needed for Durlag's Tower, but the likelihood is that I won't
be travelling there, so I'm not concerned about that.
