In Chapter 2 and it's Day 81...too much questing?

Hey guys,

Still plugging away at my first play through and questing like it's no bodies business (they just keep coming!! o.O). I have more than enough gold to go to chapter 3 and I'm just racking up magical items and experience until I feel like going to the next chapter. I just killed Firkraag and wielding this beautiful sword, Carsomyr and while I was reveling in my victory over this behemoth, it dawned on me: Am I getting too deep into the questing and side stuff to possibly mess something up for the actual story quest (i.e. Day count, killing someone important, etc.)?

It may be a silly question but one I felt like asking. Thanks guys! :)

    Yea entering chapter 3 is fine. Don't worry about the day count either. Unless a quest/quest giver specifically says it has a time limit (and there are a few of them especially if they involve a joinable NPC) you are alright.

    Np; for the actual story quest, you can go whenever you're ready. Take as much time plundering as you need. Very few other quests have an actual timer attached.

    Based on the one playthrough of bg2 I have had, if you have killed firkraag, the you can beat SoA. The end may be hard, but I get him to the very end. That was vanilla though, and I've heated that the middle bit has been made harder.

    Nah, you'll be fine. The game makes it hard to roleplay any character who cares much about Imoen, but if u can get past that inconvenience, then you won't miss anything by doing as much as you can in Chapter 2. In fact it will make u better prepared for the challenges to come.

    I think u can even visit Watcher's Keep in Chapter 2, although if u do that, u may over-gear ur party to the extent that the main game (Ch.3 to Ch.7) becomes too easy.

    Thanks for the responses, guys! I am playing on Normal so the difficulty on Firkraag may have been a bit curved since I hear most vets try and play with the "Core Rules". I tried him a couple of times with different strats and he owned me each time. Then I decided to give "Secret Word" a go and HOLY CRAP!! Everything he had on him vanished and most of my attacks went through. That and I had about 8 summoned monsters tanking him so he didn't concentrate so much on my party. Oh the gratification when he went down...I think I shouted a victory cry while. :P

    Looking forward to the rest of this awesome game. Thanks again, guys! :)
