I'm a pretty long time BG2 player. Unfortunately, one of the things I've never really mastered was understanding what spell-protection removal spells are best used in certain circumstances.
I understand some of the basics. If I wanted to get a stoneskin down asap, I might use Breach.
However. If I'm fighting a lich that opens up with a spell sequencer or chain contingency of Immunity from Magical Energy, Protection from Elements, Protection from Magical Weapons and Spell Immunity: Abjuration (and later casts Spell Trap). As a side note: Am I just supposed to soak for the duration of SI:A? If I take that to be literal, then just about every anti spell protection spell I have shouldnt work, right?
I'm not really sure what the best spell to start peeling those off is supposed to be. Khelben's Warding Whip seems like a solid option, since it seems to remove one protection per turn, but then - why does Ruby Ray of Reversal even exist (unless it has some functionality that Khelben's doesnt have?)
I usually just try to brute my way through these encounters - using healing potions and maneuvering characters around to mitigate the likelihood of death. It'd be nice to know what spells I'm supposed to use
Thanks in advance
