Man, Half-Orc Barbarians sure have it easier in the beginning.

    I had a half-orc barbarian once. I can't remember if I did that or not though...

    You don't need to be a half-orc in order to open that lock with rage - I think your str can be as low as 16 and the +4 bonus will still enable you to open that lock.

    Either way, it's just another reason that barbarians are better than berserkers. ;-)

    Ironically, I feel that getting 1,000 gold so early actually makes the game too easy from thereon in, so now I deliberately avoid finding it.

    Half orc Berserker is pretty hilarious at lvl 1 raged. What, 30 hp?? Hits like a wrecking ball.

    negatory, you need 65% in open locks or higher to get that gem, I believe 22 str is the lowest it can be to open that chest, str has a bash % rating which equals the open lock skill

    Seriously? It pains me to make a starting character that DOESN'T have 65% or so Lockpicking (the gem is nice, but missing the experience you get now for locks/traps is actually the dumb reason why it pains me).

    You can get it with the equivalent of 60 (21 strength). It just will take a few tries.

    Looks like you forgot to tell the nobles to take of their jewelry first. If you do that there is even more expensive loot in the chest! (18 charisma required)

    Seriously?

    Yeah. If you have 18 cha and tell them they should take off their expensive stuff that the chest has a necklace and another gem or something.

    What you actually do in the dialog is convince them that they are offending the monks with their showy ostentation. They'll then decide on their own to stash the jewelry - in the same strongbox with the sapphire.

    Barbarians are better than berserkers in BG1. If you are a level 1 berserker and you use enrage, when it wears off you die. I learned this the hard way.

    Or was this patched?

    That was what would happen in vanilla. AFAIK now it just inflicts nonlethal damage and knocks you out if you're too low (like being attacked with fists)
