What are the best mods for Baldur's Gate II EE that you know of?

I have downloaded and installed "The Tweaks Anthology" From https://www.gibberlings3.net/ but is there any other one that you guys think I might enjoy?

    yeah what exactly do you want?

    just asking for mods in general does not help.

    There's alot of different kinds of mods. Quests, banter packs, new npcs, kits and classes, rebalances, tweaks, etc.

    What kind of mods are you looking for?

    Well, I have the "Tweaks Anthology" from fingerlings but I'm wondering what else there is in terms of extra quests, banter as you say, and new NPCs and kits and classes I wasn't aware existed... lead me to them, please.

    Okay, so a bit of everything. On here, both Lava and Aionz are personal favorites with some good extra quests and some great new party members. semiticgod is less prolific, but has done several bonkers custom classes and kits. Check out the modding section here on the forums.

    Gibberlings3 has been around forever and has tons of mods. You'll want to poke around there. subtledoctor and Grammarsalad are responsible for some of my favorite kit and tweak mods. Check out Might and Guile, Tome and Blood, Faiths and Powers, and Scales of Balance for some major class overhauls. Make sure you read up on them before installing, they make some big changes.

    There's also a plethora of banter expansions, romances, and friendship mods both here and on G3. Imoen Romance is very popular (you don't have to romance her, still a ton of content). All things Mazzy might have the most content for what is "just" a romance mod. Extensive friendship and/or romance path for our favorite halfling paladin that also includes a whole new npc,
    Stake Hexxat when you first meet her and you can keep clara.
    Almost every npc has friendship mods and romances of varying quality.Oh, Wilson: Chronicles of the furry paragon is pretty great. Light hearted and pretty funny expansion for the secret bear npc in BG2.

    If you're really familiar with the game, and are looking for extra challenge: Ascension adds dialogues, new powers, and re-vamps the final ToB fight. Its magnificent, and super hard. SCS (Sword Coast Stratagems) is a difficulty overhaul that is very modular and customizable. Most components are fair, and focus on making enemies smarter, rather than stronger. But a few components will kick your face in, start slow with this one.

    There's hundreds of mods out there, and these are just a few of the ones I find particularly notable.

    I’d also add Isra as a good NPC, and LavaDelVortel has a ton of stuff including multiple additional districts of Athkatla.

    There is really ton of mods and components for EET install. You can improve and expand game to so much extend that it is really completely new game, multiply content of vanilla.

    Now, imagine if we made mod such as "Improved Minsc (or Boo)". Add Minsc "Boo go for the eyes assault", just like Sarevok have his Deathbringer assault. Giving him.. I don't know.. 2% chance.. to blind opponent for one round >:):D

    Depends on what you want. Pocketplane has a lot of banters, new NPCs, and the like. RPG Dungeon had some really heavy difficulty mods if that's your thing. Gibberlings 3 and SHS have a mix of everything.

    most banter mods are pretty good. thacobell already gave two but i'll throw in yoshimo friendship and romance. with both of these installed it really fleshes him out and turned him into one of my favorite characters

    minsic's friendship is also pretty good.

    party member wise: isra is great, as is xan, and aionz's mods are also fantastic but only sirene goes into bg2.

    Saeralith and Tsujatha of course

    Er, I mean... I like Unfinished Business and Rogue Rebalancing. And most of Lava's stuff is pretty good.

    Isra and Sirene both go all the way to ToB.
