Helm of Alignment change

Anyone ever kept this so it is imported to SoD? Works quite well if running a CHARNAME of , well let's say, darker interests and a lack of evil companions (and you feel you need that). First run I was running my gnome cleric/thief of Urdlen through and he found all sorts of fun n games with it.

SOme dont like it, some question the morality of it, but in the right hands ,and roleplayed with a character of the proper alignment, is quite useful.

    What do you mean "so it's imported to SoD"? Is it supposed to be found somewhere in the expansion? I just keep it in my inventory/bag of holding after defeating Sarevok.

    As for its usefulness, sometimes I give it to Viconia to keep her close to my celestially benevolent heart. In BG2EE I gave it to Dorn once so he could wield Carsomyr. A bit cheaty, I know. Perhaps it's useful to force some encounters which would only happen if you were evil? I can't say I tried.

    Oh. I know it's not related, but I can't resist mentioning other item (although its usefulness is even more questionable). In BGEE I usually "gift" Shar-Teel with the Girdle of Masculinity/Femininity :D I just can't resist, it's like the ultimate punishment for that man-hating evil broad :p

    @HalfCelestial Having the Helm at the end of the Big S fight shoud transfer it over to the opening dungeon along with our other items. Not sure if it would if sitting in a BoH. It transfers when being worn as well. Now this is with the BGEE& SoD combo where the game automaticically starts SoD after Big S's fight.

    Also if a character dies while wearing it I have noticed that when resurrected they often keep the new alignment even after it is unequipped when they die. Not sure if the girdle does similar has I don;t make much use of it.
    After trying the Shar-Teel romances I would hesitate using that myself. She certainly likes the right man in the bedroom, hehheh.

    Helm of alignment change use must be like Fight Club (and we know what the rule is on THAT). :)

    That's ok, I'll just be 'Bad,bad, Leroy Brown', hehheh

    I 'm playing the combo pac as well and give the helm to Vicky (in BG).  When I find her in camp she's still wearing it.  BTW I'm playing on a mac with the beamdog release and haven't have any problems playing.  Thanks beamdog for a great product and experience.

    I'm wondering if Dorn, after his personal quests, ...

    decides to kill both patrons and fall


    ...would be able to use Carsomyr or Purifier if wearing the Helm of Opposite Alignment.

    Would be a nicer closure than...

    having a weaker fighter around.

    Yup, that would be much more interesting, especially if SoD changes such as this were recognized moving into BG2.

    Holy Avengers should be wielded by Holy Warriors chosen by their God and not evil fighters magically brainwashed into being good.

    Heh, I was thinking along the lines of it giving him an option to change his class to a regular LG paladin, if he does the triple cross demon thing.

    If a fallen paladin doesn't become a blackguard, why would a fallen blackguard become a paladin?  Doesn't make much sense to me.  Failing at one class doesn't mean you're great at another.

    Right. I actually think a fallen paladin should have the option to become an Anti-Paladin (Blackguard outside of PnP). Easy enough using EEKeeper I reckon though , just to make do. B) I f I were a god or demon, I'd like to have the opposition finally on my team so to speak.
