(Non top tier) favorite weapons
So, we all know about the power of off-hand Belm and how FoA or Foebane is really good or Staff of the Magi gamebreaking etc.
But what are the unsung weapons that you prefer? Any favorites or preferences? Any gear that tends to fly under the radar even though it's really good?
I'm putting one from BG1EE and BG2 for now.
BG1 I like the Stupefier and I think people are giving it way too much crap for being what it is now instead of being the completely broken mess it originally was. Fun fact, when I first installed EE I immediately made a guy with mace proficiency since knew about the weapon but I didn't know it was nerfed and I wanted to absolutely break the game with it. That didn't happen but it's still very, very good for BG1.
BG2 got to hand it to Short sword of the Mask. While it's technically a TOB weapon the non-upgraded version can be got very early BG2 and fact that it's an early pick +4 weapon with an additional effect. Entangle isn't very strong but it does indirectly cause damage whenever a roll that would miss ends up hitting because of its effect. If it's a melee only enemy it also means no one is getting harassed by them for 4 rounds if you move yourself a bit further. I'm surprised how rarely I see anyone mention this beautiful little thing.
I've yet to test the buffed Pixie Prick but I'd imagine it's going to be one of my BG2 favorites now as well. Trying that out soon.
