    I'm not sure on how strong they are. Hopefully +1 weapons will be able to hit them. Otherwise our level won't make much difference.

    My werewolf form will certainly be completely useless against one I imagine.

    yea true we can always leave the mage as a offering hopping the demon will spare the rest of us. If that fails hopefully the demons path finding will fail and well get away =)

    @elminster if said demon is summoned and we leave the area then come back would the demon be gone? Or would we have to wait for the spell to expire? I havent played a Wild mage so im not sure how that will work yet?

    :) The best thing about the wild mage is his most dangerous though. That dwoemer he has can (if you do it right) let him cast spell after spell with very little time in between. Its fantastic if it doesn't go horribly wrong (chaos shield and improved chaos shield help with this obviously). It can also cast any spell in your spell book even if you can't normally cast it because of level or you don't have it memorised. Which can be useful.

    It disappears after a rest. However, they also count as one of your summons. So if it gets summoned in a city like Beregost and starts killing people (if BGEE is anything like the time I played Tutu) our reputation might take a hit with each victim.

    @elminster so no casting spells inside cities or in places that have friendly npc,s near by. How game breaking can the wild mage be if things go awry?

    I don't see it being much of an issue. The likelihood of summoning anything is very low and most effects you can shrug off (even the sex change wears off eventually). It would be a good idea to have a stone to flesh scroll on hand though :)

    lol o noes =(
  • elminsterelminster Member, Developer Posts: 16,305
    I'm going to get my wild mage out on tutu and make sure the demon summoning does actually take away from your rep. Mostly out of curiousity.

    So clearly rule one of me summoning a demon, accidently of course, is web the fighter. Leave the mage as a sacrifice my ass.

    @elminster lol Durlags tower is scary not sure if I have ever finished the whole thing =/

    I never did. I got maybe 2 floors down and was like "fuck this". I normally just go there for the wisdom tome.

    I loved Durlags Tower. One of the most challenging places in the BG series up to ToB IMO.

    @RavenX I plan on fully running through the Dungeon this time around if I can beat watchers keep I can beat Durlags tower too.

    Just the "Host"

    Lets say I started the game, I am the "host" So everyone would dial-in MY IP address to hook up with me.

    Still working away at finding out about that demon. So far I've pretty well pissed of all of the friendly arm Inn and sent a cow down accidentally on some poor sods head.
  • xxxsmb1987xxxxxxsmb1987xxx Member Posts: 280
    lol I get the feeling the wild mage is going to add alot of fun to the party =)

    Pretty sure Web has a decent AoE, best to hit you both just to make sure I can get away.
