New Premium Module: Tyrants of the Moonsea! Read More
I just did my second run through of Icewind Dale, this time on Core Rules (first time on Normal). Aside from a few spells that couldn't be memorized, and one unexpected death - both of which reload solved - the main difference was more enemies hitting harder. I found myself using my sorceror's haste spell far more often in return, which meant sleeping a lot more. That was about it. I was constantly sleeping!
Is this to be expected from Core Rules in BG2EE as well? I've played BG2EE a few times on Normal and my last run through was very comfortable. Which I liked for a change. I felt powerful! But when I play again in a year or so, I thought I would try Core Rules. I'm rethinking that after IWD. Did anyone else have a different experience on CR in BG2 other than hasting almost every battle and sleeping it off?
