Just a few quick questions. I've been wondering about these since BG 1 through SoA.
1) Weapon Speed Factor.
Some weapons have Speed of 1, some have Speed of 4 or 7. Is lower speed = faster attacking rate? Meaning speed 1 attacks 7 times faster than speed 7 weapons?
2) Saving Throws.
How do they work exactly? I know lowering saving throws is good, since level ups decrease saving throws of my characters. But how exactly does it negate spells? Sometimes I see creatures do save throw of 1, sometimes 5, 10, or even 20, 22, 25 and spell is saved against. How do saving throws subtract from spells to "save" and negate them?
3) Level drain.
I'm curious. If my characters get level drained, can I do it intentionally to drop their levels from 15 or 20 all the way down to level 4 or 5? Then level them to 7, 8, 9, then level drain them again back to level 4 or 5. Over and over to get infinite proficiency points and HP growth?
