    When I killed Greywolf with the newfound Wand of Cold and destroyed Varascona.

    Oh, and when I was going to press "O" to go to the Options menu and save the game, and discovered that the EE's have a new nice feature, coincidentally called "Quick Load" mapped on "L", which was the key I pressed by accident. OMFG I nearly cried.

    @bengoshi Thanks! Never found one and I'm just about done the game; I'm actually at the point where you need to sneak around or run away from all the guards.

    yes found it randomly , started as cleric 7 then dualed to mage , until then i hoarded all scrolls i would find in my scrolls box and then just stock up in high hedge and baldurs gate on what i didn't have :)
    Nice. :smiley:

    It looks like I'm going to have to go old school and beat them all unconscious with my fists then run away like a dirty coward.
    Wands of Paralyzation are your new best friend once those Flaming Fist pansies turn on you. I actually had to sell a few back to the Sorcerer's Sundries to have them recharged. Charm & Dire Charm work as well.

    My greatest facepalm moment was when I rolled a Human Female Fighter with some amazing stats with the intention of becoming a dual classed Fighter/Druid and just before the end of BG1, I realised I had 1 less point in CHA than I needed to dual class her.

    using both keldorn and Viconia as my core party, and forgetting they don't like each other...twice.

    When first meeting an Ogre Mage (I think it was the area west of Firewine bridge) he started casting Ghost Armour and while my party advanced on him he cast a Stinking Cloud which immediately disabled 3 of my group - I was horrified and certain that the group would be slaughtered by that mighty monster.

    Then I noticed that the Ogre Mage had placed the Stinking Cloud so that he himself was caught in the effect, failed it´s save and was uncouncious and helpless... :o

    Thanks! Never found one and I'm just about done the game; I'm actually at the point where you need to sneak around or run away from all the guards.

    If I'm not sneaking I'll use stun darts & wands of paralyzation to stop the guards in their tracks w/out killing them.

  • Whenever I cast a spell and catch my own PCs in it...this happens all the time. I am horrible at judging distances. I've wiped out my entire party with badly-aimed fireballs.

    A recent one that made me chuckle -

    Started a monk character.
    I usually knock the guy out that's standing by the chest upstairs at the candlekeep inn to get the goods without losing rep.
    I knocked him out all right. Knocked him right into 10 tiny giblet pieces.

    Another monk downside. You can't use the unconscious-loot trick if you're a monks.

    This happens quite often when fighting Ogre Mages. You'll see it again - probably along the sword coast.

    Once I thought I could triple class a human character, it took me a lot of levels to realise I couldn't.

    After 15 years of playing I discover a new place in game. I just want my assasin to hide behind the building and I enter the new area by accident. Inside there was a bandit with little dialog. Did anyone of you find that place? Or other "hidden" entrance like that. ScrnShot below.

    Wow - I don't think I've ever seen that before.

    Created a character for dual class mage/thief and got to bladur's gate without remembering that elves can't dual class.

    Ouch!

    Was rolling stats for my Gnome Fighter/Illusionist. I wanted to get a 93 (or higher) so that I could have 18/18/18/19/10/10.

    While rerolling, I came across a 101. I was so excited that I went to sit up in my chair for a better look. While trying to sit up, my finger clicked my mouse button again causing me to reroll stats...

    I ended up settling for a 91 after about an hour of rerolling after that.

    Made a character for dual wielding. Left candlekeep and realized that he had ** in single weapon style.

    I made a paladin and planned to give him a 2-handed sword. I checked his character screen just before buying weapons and saw that the pip was in two-weapon style.
    I did the opposite: Created a character in BG2, gave him two pips in Long Swords and two in 2-Handed Weapon Style, meaning to let him dual-wield long swords.

    Other memorable blunders:

    Casting Fireball, Death Fog and other AoE spells in crowded city streets, doing serious damage to my party's reputation.

    Casting Incendiary Cloud on Aran Linvail & Co (I was working for Bodhi) without first protecting my party from fear. Aran's mage responded with Fear, causing Charname to panic and run into his own poison cloud. Reload time...

    Sending a Planetar in to fight Diyatha & Co in Sendai's enclave. Then for good measure I fireballed them as well, harming my own Planetar and turning it hostile. (I managed to survive that particular mistake.)

    I guess speaking to Thaxll'ssillyia with a level 10 party on one of my first runs also counts as a major Facepalm. I gained considerable respect for dragons that day.

    That is funny as well as a warning for me as I am about to play that part!

    I had a faceplam moment last night. I was soloing as a Cavalier and had taken ages to roll a really good character because I was going to play a no reload game. I had got to second level by talking to Marl and breaking the news to Mirianne about her husband but I was still only wearing Studded Leather armour because that was all I had been able to afford in Candlekeep. Instead of doing the sensible thing and going and buying a set of Splint Mail I thought I know, I'll go and rescue Viconia and get a set of Plate for free. I headed up to Pelvdale, found Viconia and agreed to save her from the nasty Flaming Fist soldier. She cast Command on him, he fell to the ground and she started beating on him. I was about to join in when I thought, wait a minute, I'm a Cavalier, it's one thing agreeing to save her but we could run away now, I shouldn't be murdering the guy. While I was mulling this over the Flaming Fist guy woke up. Fine I thought, now I can join the fight.

    At this point Viconia cast Hold Person. The Flaming Fist guy saved; I didn't.

    So my Cavalier got hacked to pieces in the first real fight she had been in and all because I wanted a free set of armour.

    Wow! There IS justice in this world (that world - BG) after all! And being a Paladin does mean something (if only a punishment for a bad deeds :) )
