Has the difficulty been toned down in BG:EE?
I play both BGEE and BGT due to the latter having more mod compatibility, and BGEE seems to have an easier start. I played both on core difficulty without mods.
In BGT, I occasionally met dire wolves and even dread wolves(650xp!) in the first area after I left candlekeep. In my last play, I killed 2 dread wolves on that map alone without resting. However, I haven't seen dread wolves in BGEE so far and the number of spawns seem less in BGEE.
I'm not a fanatic purist but lowering difficulty, if true, seems bad because it breaks the immersion for me. I love the feeling of accomplishment from being desperate and weak in BG1's start and becoming more powerful later on. Could anyone confirm/deny this?
