Ring of Infravision: Finally Found a Use
So... the Ring of Infravision. Most games I loot it from Nimbul's cold, dead corpse and proceed to pawn it ASAP. For once I decided I would keep it. Arbitrarily, I gave it to Imoen. She sounds like a bit of a kleptomaniac in the first game anyway ("those monks never have anything good on them"!), so it seemed fitting enough.
I found myself using it without even realizing it. Every time I went to find a shadow so she could hide in shadows easier, her sprite would become reddish and I could tell when to click the button.
I realize you can tell if someone is "in the dark"/in a shadow without infravision, but it makes it more readily apparent anyhow. I also realize one can simply turn on party infravision.
So it's not a game-changer, but convenient anyway!
